Driving off-road requires skill, patience and confidence, not to mention an adventurous spirit that appreciates nature. Individuals who enjoy off-road experiences can attest to the liberating feeling of taking a vehicle off-road and exploring wild places and destinations that few others ever do. Razi Salih, a businessman with extensive experience, is a big fan of Jeep riding in nature, having been a member of Jeep riding groups.
Jeep, and other vehicles like it, can travel in off-road conditions in style and safety. Some of these sports utility vehicles (SUVs) and four-wheel drive (4WD) vehicles are popular options for thrill-seekers looking to explore some of the top off-road destinations in the world, which include:
In addition to being an interesting vacation destination, Morocco is also an off-roader’s dream location, thanks to an abundance of desert terrain and rocky mountain road. The country is home to the Atlas Mountains, with the Sahara Desert to the south. The desert, in particular, has dunes, dry valleys and natural canyons that are sure to test an off-road driver’s skill and resilience.
Rubicon Trail, California
The Rubicon Trail in California (United States) is a 35-kilometre (22-mile) rough mountain trail that’s full of boulders and rocks. Once, it was a route used by native communities to travel to Lake Tahoe from the Sacramento Valley. European settlers also used the trail, and in the early 20th century, the road was in good condition. However, it became unpassable in the 1950s, which led to its popularity as an off-road trail.
The trail is regarded as one of the most difficult in the world, thanks to the steep inclines and sharp drops along its path. Obstacles are a part of the route, so drivers have to drive with skill, precision and at low speeds. It might be a slow journey moving along the trail, but the adventure and fun make it worthwhile.
Salisbury Plain, Wiltshire
Salisbury Plain is a popular off-road destination for enthusiasts in the UK, thanks to its unique mix of terrain for individuals of all skill levels. A three-mile gravel road, which passes through Savernake Forest, might provide an easy pass, but the natural scenery is worth slowing down for. A network of muddy tracks holds the challenge to any willing off-roader, and it’s common for cars to get stuck. Having a map is necessary, as is a well-equipped vehicle that can carry necessary supplies to make the experience a great one.
