Epic drives of the world

Herald on Sunday - - SUNDAY TRAVEL -

Won­der­ing where the road will take you next? Make plans now with Lonely Planet’s Epic Drives of the World, which fea­tures 50 clas­sic driv­ing routes (from Argentina to Zam­bia), and 200 ideas for great drives rang­ing from easy-go­ing cruises to back-coun­try adventures. If go­ing fur­ther afield isn’t in your sights right now, then there are two drives in New Zealand — with chap­ters ded­i­cated to the “South­ern Alps Ex­plorer” and “North­land & The Bay of Is­lands”. The main sto­ries in each re­gional chap­ter fea­ture first-hand ac­counts of fan­tas­tic drives and facts to help with trip plan­ning and in­spi­ra­tion. Drives are colour­coded ac­cord­ing to dif­fi­culty, which takes into ac­count not just how long, re­mote and chal­leng­ing they are but lo­gis­tics and lo­cal con­di­tions. Lonely Planet’s

Epic Drives of the World, $34.99.
