7 of the best roadtrips you’ll ever take

Are you a roadie at heart? So am I. Here are some road trips from my own travel bucket list. Some of them might just get you going.

Carrera Austral, Chile

A 1240 km road, most of which is unpaved, may not sound like an ideal road trip to you. But for the ones who love to throw down a challenge to themselves, the Carretera Austral in Chile, aslo known as the CH-7, is an opportunity to test themselves. Motorcycling through the entire strip has been a popular activity for the adventure lovers, and it’s easy to see why – turquoise blue rivers, lupine flower fields and beautiful Chilean hamlets line the road. Hop on a Harley, and rumble through the road. Stop at the fjord shaped Yelcho Lake for maginificent views of faraway glaciers, have a lunch at the beautiful town of Chaiten. Take a detour into the Pumalin Park or stop and photograph the rugged peaks of Cerro Castillo.

Garden Route, Africa

Named after the diverse flora found here, the Garden Route in South Africa takes you from the Western Cape to the Eastern Cape, letting you travel through forests, over mountains and beside the sea. The relatively short stretch offers a rough shoreline, along with dense rainforests, provides you a perfect combination of green and blue. Drive beside the Tsitsikamma and the Outeniqua mountains, and realize that there is no dearth of ravishinng views. The highlight of the route is the Bloukrans Bridge, which lets you bungy from a height of over 700 feet.

John Muir Way, Scotland

Experience the captivating countryside of Scotland through the 215 km John Muir Way that stretches from the town of Helensburgh to Dunbar. Throughout the path you would be able to witness contrasting landscapes such as farmlands, stunning beaches, canals, woodlands, lochs and mountains. If you are a historian, you would love to visit some of the architectural highlights like the Antonine Wall, Linlithgow Palace, Falkirk Wheel and Forth Bridges that are a part of the trail. The John Muir Route is accessible via trains and buses too but the best way to explore the beautiful landscape is by walking, cycling or horseriding.

The Mother of All Routes – Route 66

The holy grail of all rides is Route 66 in the USA. Connecting Chicago with LA, the route covers a distance of 4000 kilometres spread over a wide range of landscapes. Passing through Missouri, Texas, and Arizona the road is a cultural carnival. It gives you various shades of life in the US from the Wild West to the all-American lifestyle. The neon-signed bunks and motels, the remnants of a glorious past, and the people add more flavour to the experience. A small detour will take you to the Grand Canyon. Nothing more shall give a perfect completion to the roadtrip

Amalfi Coast in Salerno, Italy

Pristine pastel cityscapes, towering bluffs and a glistening sun over turquoise waters is a lovely concoction during a ride. The Amalfi coast located in the province of Salerno in southern Italy is a route right out of poetry and literature. The lovely roads are considered to be amongst the best in the world, for travel. Decked with age-old cathedrals, lush gardens and plazas the location is a standing timeline. The town of Amalfi is the highlight of the location, serving options of indulgence with cafes, shops and an escape from the bustle in the surrounding hills.

Rann of Kutch, India

Any Indian’s dream of an adventure would be to thud across the nation on a Royal Enfield. The bike has a unique build and has been pictured in obscure places across the world. Out of all the locations that one must thud on their bikes, the Rann of Kutch shouldn’t be missed. The 30K Kms of white spreads in the Thar Desert draw you in its purity. The Kutchi people and their traditions add the colour to the endless white like cherries on vanilla pastry. Though the place may be hot as an oven in the summers, the wintry nights compensate for the heat, making it the optimal time to visit. The trick to enjoy the place at its prime is to get off the road and onto the salt flats. The bikes are sturdy enough to handle that and so are the flats. Be sure to have a sense of direction, otherwise you might end up across the border. See for yourself if you are built for all roads and no roads. The bikes sure are.

Bunkers del Carmel, Barcelona

A 1240 km road, most of which is unpaved, may not sound like an ideal road trip to you. But for the ones who love to throw down a challenge to themselves, the Carretera Austral in Chile, aslo known as the CH-7, is an opportunity to test themselves. Motorcycling through the entire strip has been a popular activity for the adventure lovers, and it’s easy to see why – turquoise blue rivers, lupine flower fields and beautiful Chilean hamlets line the road. Hop on a Harley, and rumble through the road. Stop at the fjord shaped Yelcho Lake for maginificent views of faraway glaciers, have a lunch at the beautiful town of Chaiten. Take a detour into the Pumalin Park or stop and photograph the rugged peaks of Cerro Castillo.
