10 Scenic Virtual Road Trips You Can Take From Home

Hit the Road From the Couch

The COVID-19 pandemic has limited the places road trippers can experience this summer. Fortunately, Google Street View makes it easy to live out your favorite road trip journeys from the safety and comfort of home. U.K.-based car and travel insurance specialists GoCompare recently compiled a list of the most scenic road trips from around the world, utilizing the power of Google to put users in the driver's seat for a virtual getaway.

1. Grand Canyon, Arizona

A bucket-list attraction for many, the Grand Canyon is certainly scenic but so is getting there. Take a virtual road trip from Los Angeles, Las Vegas or even Denver and consider taking a digital hiking tour of the national park once you've arrived.


2. Ring Road, Iceland

Encircling Iceland, Ring Road takes travelers on a scenic journey past waterfalls, rugged mountains and volcanoes. Spanning more than 800 miles, this route can be completed in just 24 hours but odds are you'll want to stop and spend some time in places like Reykjavik and the famous Blue Lagoon.


3. Sydney to Byron Bay, Australia

The picturesque ride from Sydney to Byron Bay along the coast of New South Wales will take virtual tourists past a handful of highlights, including Newcastle, Port Macquarie, Coff's Harbour and Yamba. 


4. Trollstigen, Norway

The snaking and climbing "Troll's Ladder" is Norway's most-visited tourist road and for good reason. In addition to the unparalleled mountain scenery, virtual visitors will be wowed by nearly a dozen incredible hairpin turns, each with its very own name.


5. Transfagarasan, Romania

Romania's Road to the Sky passes through towering mountains, connecting the country's southern portion with Transylvania. Along the way, digital road trippers will spot the Balea Waterfall, pass through the Capra Tunnel and experience the impressive Vidraru Dam.


6. Route 66, United States

Route 66, often referred to as the Main Street of America, is arguably the world's most iconic road trip. Spanning well over 2,000 miles from Chicago to Santa Monica, Route 66 features a seemingly endless list of sites, from eye-popping roadside attractions like Cadillac Ranch to one-of-a-kind accommodations such as the Wigwam Motel.


7. North Coast 500, Scotland

Scotland has it's own Route 66 known as the North Coast 500. This remarkable coastal route usually requires several days to complete but virtual road trippers can experience Inverness, John O'Groats and other highlights at their own pace.


8. Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse, Austria

Named after the imposing Grossglockner mountain—the highest in Austria at an elevation of 12,461 feet—this extraordinary European road trip will immerse travelers in the mesmerizing High Tauern mountain range and the longest glacier in the Eastern Alps in The Pasterze.


9. Los Angeles to Yosemite, California

You don't have to wait for Yosemite National Park to reopen to experience it. Take the virtual road trip from Los Angeles to Yosemite and check off some coveted sites like the Bixby Bridge and Pismo Beach along the way.


10. Verdon Gorge, France

Get your heart racing with a virtual journey around this splendid river canyon in southeastern France. Tour winding roads hundreds of feet above the Verdon River as you bypass gorgeous natural wonders, including the expansive Lake of Sainte-Croix.
