Iconic car maker Land Rover has teamed up with luxury travel partner Abercrombie & Kent to launch “the most luxurious road trip on Earth”. This once-in-a-lifetime experience takes in five continents, eight countries and nine of the world's best hotels from behind the wheel of the Range Rover SVAutobiography.
The 21 day long trip, that starts at £100,000 per person based on two travellers, combines some of the greatest driving routes the world has to offer, both on-road and off-road.
Starting in Europe, the first leg of tour takes in the famous coastal road from Monaco to Portofino then on to Lake Como followed by the stunning Dolomite mountains. This stage includes lunch at the world-renowned Joel Robuchon restaurant at the Metropole as well as a personalised fragrance making class in the lavender scented hills of Provence and a glacier picnic - by chartered helicopter - in the peaks of the Alps.

From Europe to Australia, this trip is all about the epitome of luxury but done so in a Land Rover way - the unexpected, the off-the-beaten-track and the once-in-a-lifetime experiences. This itinerary represents the definitive drive adventure, achieved in the definitive vehicle."
