Not all road trips are created equal – some rise above the rest, and Pub2Pub’s Seven Summits road trip certainly does just that. Here’s your chance to join ‘Kermit’ and the Pub2Pub crew on a rarefied journey which takes in the seven highest drivable passes in the Alps, in seven days. Inspired by our time spent with Kermit among the high peaks of the Andes and our forthcoming Mini6000 expedition, this road trip links together some of Europe’s best driving roads and most stunning vistas as it snakes its way between the mountains of France, Italy, Switzerland and Austria. Because we’re running the event in September, the roads should be reasonably quiet, the views incredible, and the summits are brought to life with the first dustings of the winter snows.
Trust us, if you only do one road trip this year, you’re going to want to make it this one.
