Self-drive holidays

With the freedom and flexibility to explore your own route at your own pace, a self-drive holiday quite literally puts you in the driving seat of your bucket-list holiday.

During one of our self-drive holidays, you are free to take the road less travelled on our carefully selected routes that allow you to fill your days as you wish for a completely personalised holiday experience.

Upon arrival at the airport, your car will be waiting for you to begin your adventure. Equipped with maps and GPS, it’ll just be you and the open road.


Self-drive holiday help

Our Artisan Travel Experts are on hand to offer a wealth of knowledge about your chosen destination. Having visited the locations ourselves whilst working alongside our brilliant local partners for a number of years, we really know our destinations and have many helpful tips to pass along.

We can suggest a route tailored to your interests and, if you’d like, we can pre-book local activities for you in advance.

Where will your Artisan Travel self-drive holiday take you?

Our self-drive holiday destinations have all been carefully chosen because of the brilliant roads and exceptional experiences they offer.

Iceland, in particular, is an extremely driveable country whilst still retaining its natural wonder. This is due to the 1,333 km continuous road looping the perimeter of this captivating island, making it incredibly easy to navigate. This means that you could reach some of the most popular natural attractions before the morning tours arrive, giving you an almost-private viewing.

In Norway, you can enjoy the awe-inspiring fjords, dramatic mountainous backdrops and beautiful beaches all basking in the power of the Midnight Sun as you drive along some of the world’s most picturesque roads.
