Big Adventure

A European Road Trip with everything a Petrolhead could want!

Our 6 day European Road Trip takes on some of the best driving roads and Passes in Europe including Stelvio, Col de l’Iseran, Mont Cenis, Fluela & Jaufen. Plus we’ll visit Lake Garda, Maranello (home of the Ferrari museum) & Black Forest. On Rico Rally you will stay at fantastic hotels and visit great locations with a final night get together for food, drink & awards before returning home.

Col de l’Iseran

The highest paved pass in the Alps (2,770m) and a fantastic driving road with stunning Alpine scenery.

Stelvio Pass

Of course much was made of the Stelvio Pass after Top Gear voted this the best driving road in the world in 2008. A pretty bold claim, and actually in our opinion it’s not the best pass in the Alps to “drive” however, that said, it is a truly stunning road to view, and the wall of 48 switchback turns running up its north face really are a sight to behold, and worth the drive for that part alone.

Mont cenis

A bit of a sleeper this route – not many know about it, which means there’s less traffic on it. Twists and turns with a dramatic backdrop as the scenery changes on almost every corner.

Fluela Pass - Rico Rally

Fluela Pass

One of the most beautiful passes we’ll drive on this trip, in fact on all of our trips. With it’s flowing curves and slight undulations the Fluela Pass really is a superb road to drive.

The Ferrari Museum in Maranello invites visitors to live the Prancing Horse dream first-hand. It offers a unique and enthralling voyage of discovery, a story told through cars that have made automotive history on streets and circuits the world over. This is an optional stop on the trip.

Jaufen Pass

The Jaufenpass winds through green meadows and forests, with lots of twists & turns to the summit.  From here the pass road swings down in wide curves and serpentines down to Saint Leonhard.

Lake Garda Region

Lake Garda, in northern Italy, is known for its crystal clear water. At the south end, the town of Sirmione is dominated by the Rocca Scaligera, a fortress with harbor views.

Innsbruck

Past and future meet in the heart of the Alps, where Innsbruck’s world-famous sights, which testify to the Tirol province’s great past, stand alongside post-modern international architecture to create a fascinating place to explore.
