Here we present to you 5 reasons why you should jump behind the wheel of these four-wheel drives; away from the tourist crowds, on solo off-road courses, or with your friends or your partner for a romantic time.
1. To discover remote places, once inaccessible
The advantage of 4x4 trails is that it takes you to places that are usually inaccessible. In the heart of nature, you hurtle down the slopes, the mountains of the region of your excursion while admiring the magnificent setting that is offered to you. Let's say you book your tour to Cambo-Les-Bains via Auritz to end in Espelette: it is 223 kilometres of intense acceleration and discovery. Or imagine that you decide to head towards Hérault for half a day to admire the lake of Salagou! Here, you can enjoy the attractive surroundings of the region while increasing your dose of oxytocin and adrenaline. There are plenty of offers to choose from! Immerse yourself in the beauty of the region and the thrill of being on a 4x4 trail excursion in France!
2. For an unparalleled feeling of freedom, never felt before
Whether you are seated behind the wheel or in the passenger seat of your 4x4 car, you will feel just as powerful as the engine of your machine. No obstacle can stand up to this machine as it hurtles down all types of terrains - sandy, muddy, snowy. Feel the path under the wheels as you zip through the wild landscapes. This activity will make you feel free and light, amid nature. For instance, you can combine artistic discovery with adventure if you choose to visit Montpeyroux. The activity will take you to the village of Celles and the Notre Dame des Clans chapel. How enticing does this sound!

What is the best time of year for 4x4 trips in France?
One of the peculiarities of 4x4 vehicles is their ability to drive on any type of terrain. You will be able to cross snowy, wet or dry roads as well, and this is the best time of year to take the route of your choice. However, this does not prevent 4x4 hikes from being organized throughout the year.
