Road to London

Trip Overview

2022 marked a new beginning! After a 3-year break due to Covid 19, Road to London too faced a daunting challenge. With Myanmar and China closed to visitors, we had to dig deep and come up with an alternate route. That is when the idea of shipping our vehicles to Iran popped up. Thus emerged the new route via Iran, Turkey, Eastern Europe, the Baltics, Scandinavia, and Western Europe. From the hot and sultry August morning in Bandar Abbas to freezing Nordkapp – the northernmost tip of mainland Europe, from the ruins of Persepolis and Mount Nemrut to the mesmerizing beauty of the fjords in western Norway, our group was in thrall of the new route. Many who had done the original route, found this just as thrilling. The 2023 version of this legendary road trip has much in store for you. Beginning in Iran, our merry troupe will drive across the tarmacs in Turkey, Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, Austria, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium and France before finding its final destination in London. Historic landmarks, untamed wilderness, bustling cities, towering peaks, modern marvels, lip-smacking cuisines and rolling greens; will all come together over 60 inspiring days to form vignettes in a life-altering journey that will propel you to look inwards and realize your potential for chasing that adrenaline rush.

Route Map





The best journey of the rest of your life begins with our arrival to Bandar Abbas, a port city in the Hormozgān Province of Iran, where we will get possession of our vehicles. From here, we will move towards one of the oldest cities of Ancient Persia, Shiraz, which is home to Maharloo Lake. The seasonal salt lake takes on a deep pink/reddish hue and makes for a wondrous sight. Our next destination within Iran will be the city of Isfahan. En route, we will be visiting Persepolis - a UNESCO World Heritage Site which served as the ceremonial capital of the First Persian Empire. A day to tour Isfahan will be followed by driving towards the Iranian capital, Tehran.


Iran, Turkey

From Tehran, we will be heading to the vintage city of Tabriz, our final destination in Iran, which boasts a historical lineage going back 4,500 years. We’ll also visit Kandovan during our stay in Tabriz, a village with houses carved within the rocks, and the famous Bazaar of Tabriz. Next, we’ll cross the border from Iran into Turkey to Van. History, nature’s artistry, the sun, and the sea - all come together in this gorgeous country that demands devoted exploration. We will cruise through the city of Malatya en route to the beautiful Adiyaman.


Turkey, Bulgaria (via Greece), Serbia

From Adiyaman, the convoy will drive to Cappadocia, where an unparalleled morning hot balloon ride awaits us amidst other delights. Post this bucket list activity; next up will be Istanbul. Napoleon famously said: “If the world was only one country, Istanbul would be its capital”. Istanbul is a revelation indeed. A tour of Sultanahmet – the old quarter and capital of the Byzantine and Ottoman empires, and a luxurious cruise on the Bosphorus Strait, marked by numerous architectural gems, will be the crowning glory of our Turkish extravaganza. Our third week on this sojourn sees us crossing the border from Turkey, into the capital of Bulgaria - Sofia, via Greece. We get a full day to tour this delightfully varied and charmingly laid-back city, Bulgaria’s cultural hub. From Sofia, our convoy will cross the border into Belgrade, Serbia. A treasure trove for history and antiquity enthusiasts, the capital of Serbia is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world.


Belgrade, Hungary (via Croatia), Poland (via Austria, Slovakia and Czech Republic)

Belgrade will be followed by us making a foray into Hungary via Croatia. We find ourselves in Budapest, Hungary’s capital and financial nerve centre. Urbane, sophisticated, classically rich and boasting an abundance of hot springs and thrilling nightlife - Budapest is sure to impress. Post which we’ll be bidding farewell to Hungary and driving through Austria, Slovakia and the Czech Republic towards Krakow in Poland. En route, we’ll visit the Auschwitz concentration camp in Krakow, Poland. Observe and immerse yourself in the feel of a place that stands today as a testament to the never-ending bid for peace and one’s spirit of survival, even when faced with abject misery. We leave Krakow to drive towards the capital city of Warsaw. A robust regional financial, cultural and political hub, most of Warsaw’s architecture is contemporary owing to its post-WWII origins. After a day of touring Warsaw, we set out for the Baltics.


Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland

In the fifth week, our convoy will cross the border into the capital of Lithuania, Vilnius. Renowned for its art and architecture, Vilnius’ Old Town was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994. The journey further will see us arriving in Riga, Latvia. The capital of Latvia is the largest city amongst the three Baltic nations and plays host to one of the world’s largest collections of Art Nouveau buildings. Get set to tick off some must-visit locations by rolling into the city of Tallinn. The capital of Estonia is located on the shore of the Gulf of Finland and is famous for its beautifully preserved specimens of Medieval Architecture. A spectacular cruise across the Baltic Sea beckons as we leave Estonia to take our cars onboard a ferry and set sail towards Helsinki in Finland. Celebrate the Nordic culture of the vibrant seaside capital city of Helsinki.


Finland, Norway

In the sixth week, we head towards the winter wonderland of Rovaniemi via the resort city of Oulu. Delights galore await us as we tour the tourism hotspot that is the city of Rovaniemi, also widely known to be the official home town of Santa Claus. Traipsing through the picture-perfect Santa Claus Village and a date with some gorgeous furry friends at a Husky farm will ensure that our time in Finland makes for some of the best memories. The convoy will be crossing into the magical country of Norway at Honningsvåg. We will reach the highest point of our journey as we make our way to Nordkapp, the highest point in Europe accessible by road. Here we will be treated to a guided boat tour which, apart from offering breathtaking views, is also the congregation point for thousands of birds like Puffins, Gannets, and Cormorants. Our next stopover in Norway will be at Tromsø, where we will hunt to capture the mesmerising phenomenon of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights).



Consequently, we will drive through and explore the Norwegian cities of Fauske, Trondheim and Ålesund, along with discovering the sheer joy of cruising along the stunning Atlantic Ocean Road. This approximately 8.3 km stretch of concrete is an engineering marvel and is famed for its scenic beauty, dramatic curves and remarkable bridges. We continue our Norwegian adventure with a signature experience in the city of Bergen, which will take us through some of Norway’s incredible fjord landscape - including the Aurlandsfjord, the narrow Nærøyfjord and the dizzying hairpin bends of Stalheimskleiva.


Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Netherlands

Departing from Bergen, our final halt in Norway will be at Oslo, known for its namesake fjord, enchanting woodlands and emerald forests. From here, we will cross the border into Sweden. The capital of Sweden is an art lover’s paradise and is set on an archipelago of 14 islands connected by 57 bridges. After experiencing Sweden, we’ll cross another border to Copenhagen, Denmark. The capital of Denmark is widely celebrated for its regal history, awe-inspiring architecture, dedication to sustainable living and genuinely happening restaurant scene. From here, we will head towards Amsterdam in the Netherlands via Germany. An absolute favourite amongst tourists and popularly referred to as the ‘Venice of the North’, Amsterdam is an addictive combo of finesse and fun.


Netherlands, France, The United Kingdom

We embark upon the last leg of our trip driving away from the Netherlands, crossing Belgium and entering France to reach the port city of Calais. After a relaxing night, we will board the cruise to Dover, UK. Indulge in a magnificent farewell dinner before our vehicles are shipped back to India. At the same time, you savour the moments and the memories collected during this trip par excellence. Relive the sights, the smells, the spices, and the nuances you have sampled on the Road to London, for this is one journey that is sure to remain forever incomparable.
