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.
