4x4 Off-Road Adventures
4x4 Off-Road Adventures with Planet RideExperience international travel in an entirely new way - avoid the tourists, overpriced attractions, and get off the beaten path with one of Planet Ride's 4x4 off-road tours. You will see the exquisite natural beauty and most remote parts of whatever country you choose to explore. Along the way, you may have the opportunity to meet the local people that still thrive in these environments and experience their customs, cuisine, and other aspects of their culture. For example, you might spend the night in a traditional yurt in Kyrgyzstan or Mongolia, meet Laotian tribespeople as they bring their crops to market, or learn how the desert fishing people of Mauritania survive. During stops on your 4x4 adventure, you'll be able to enjoy more than just 4x4 driving, such as exploring New Zealand's tiniest national park, taking a nature hike in Jamaica, or hiking to see the famous Hartmann mountain zebras of Namibia. At Planet Ride, we make this possible by connecting you, the adventure-seeking 4x4 enthusiast, with local guides that are just like you! We scout the planet and select only the best that we know will provide our riders an unforgettable experience. They can assist with planning your adventure, are knowledgeable of the local terrain and customs, they will be able to assist with vehicle issues, and will help you out with anything else along the way. We currently offer tours on four different continents, which includes twenty-one different countries! Our standard tours range from as short as four days, to as long as twenty-one days. We've provided a few examples below, but check out our tours page for a full searchable listing of all the countries where we currently offer tours. Make sure to check back often because we are constantly adding new tours and new tour locations!
Our selection of roadtrip with 4x4:
What to Expect on Your Planet Ride 4×4 Adventure
One example tour is an eight-day trip through Morocco with our partner, Gille, where you’ll cover approximately two-thousand kilometers! During this time, you will see Roman ruins and Moroccan cities and villages. You will also have plenty of time to sharpen your 4×4 driving skills in the sandy deserts and dunes of this African country. A slightly longer tour option is our twelve-day 4×4 travel through Uzbekistan. On this adventure, Shukhrat, a local Uzbeki 4×4 enthusiast and guide, will help you retrace the steps of the ancient Silk Road caravaners. On your journey, you will encounter countless beautiful mosques and a variety of landscapes – from the remnants of the now-dry Aral Sea to the green alpine valley of Hayat. Once you have left the capital of Tashkent, it will be little more than barren backroads for your 4×4 adventure. Some of the roads may be challenging enough, but you will also have the opportunity to practice some even more challenging 4×4 driving as you cross one of Uzbekistan’s major rivers – the Amu-Darya. Lastly, an example of one of our longest trips is a seventeen-day off-road trek through Bolivia with Loic, a former IT professional, and 4×4 specialist. On this trip, you will experience the country’s unique geographic curiosities – Lake Titicaca, the highest lake in the world, Salar de Uyuni, the largest salt flats in the world, and finally, the massive peaks of the Cordillera Real mountain range. As if the sights weren’t enough, you will be immersed in the local cultures each step of your journey! You will explore tiny villages at over four thousand meters of elevation, learn how salt is extracted at a salt farm, explore the colonial city of Sucre, which is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and so much more. There will be plenty of opportunities for adventure, like driving and hiking up the Tunupa volcano, where you’ll reach an altitude of four thousand seven hundred meters.
The vehicles used on our tours include Toyota Prados, Land Cruisers, and 4 Runners, Suzuki Gran Vitara, Jeep Wranglers, Land Rover Defenders, Nissan pick-ups, and other tough vehicles built for 4×4 travel. It might even be possible to bring your vehicle, and we can help you with the necessary arrangements!
