Fly Drive Holidays
Our collection of fly drive holidays offer the perfect combination of flexibility to explore at your own pace with the benefit of following a well-researched route and having pre-booked accommodation at the end of each day.
Having the freedom to experience your destination at leisure is one of the best things about a self-drive holiday - being able to stop for a photo break whenever you wish, pull over to stretch your legs or simply soak up the scenery - and out on the open road there's a wow factor around every corner across all our spectacular destinations.
Available year round in nearly all destinations though sometimes with seasonal variations, our fly drive holidays vary in duration and interest and can easily be adapted to suit your individual requirements. Across Iceland, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Australia, Canada and Alaska, our itineraries are designed to ensure you make the most out of your time away be that on a short break in one of our Nordic destinations or a month-long journey in the Antipodes.

We've developed our comprehensive collection of Iceland fly drive holidays during our 30+ years of visiting this fascinating country. They've been carefully researched to include the well-known places that we know visitors will enjoy, as well as many hidden gems we’ve discovered on our travels. And exclusive to Discover the World, each of our self-drive clients are loaned an iPad Air upon arrival in Iceland, giving them access to iDiscover. Your personalised itinerary will be pre-loaded alongside a vast travel directory featuring scenic wonders, 'must-visit' sites as well as hidden gems and activities available. With 4G connectivity and built in links to weather updates and road conditions, you'll have all the information you need for your entire trip in one handy device.
The vast distances of Canada mean that many of our fly drive holidays are focused on individual or adjacent provinces, including the perfect pairing of British Columbia and Alberta in the west and The Maritimes or Newfoundland & Labrador in the East. A self-drive exploration of Canada can easily be combined with Alaska for a true wilderness adventure. Whether you choose to explore by car or motorhome, expect spectacular wilderness, vibrant cities, local communities and plentiful wildlife encounters.

Our Australia self-drive holidays are the perfect complement - from tropical Queensland in the north to wildlife-rich Tasmania in the south, Western Australia to the Pacific coast, we've got a fly drive itinerary in Australia suitable for everyone.
Summertime is the perfect time of year to explore Scandinavia by car, with long hours of daylight offering extended opportunities to explore the majestic fjords and picturesque countryside of Norway. On a Sweden self-drive holiday choose between exploring the sparkling coastline of West Sweden or the pretty villages and hamlets of the southern province of Skane. Alternatively the mountainous Lofoten Islands offer picture-postcard scenery for aurora hunters during the winter months.
Our holiday was absolutely fantastic, we did and saw everything we wanted to. We thank you for giving us such good directions for driving from place to place as we could not have done this without them, and would not have had time to stop and enjoy things.
