WHO THE ROADBOOK PACKAGE IS USEFUL FOR:
It is very useful in case you would like to visit the places described here on your own and by your own transportation such as motorcycles, cars, campers, etc. You can also rent one if you arrive by plane. Our digital files will allow you to follow exactly the trip and in complete freedom. You will only have to book a hotel where to overnight. For that, just use the Booking.com service window located on our pages. Organizing in this way your journey you will be able to visit more things spending less money.

HOW TO ORDER A ROADBOOK PACKAGE:
To make your order, you must be registered. Please, use a correct email address because the Roadbook Package will be sent to your registration email address within 24-48 hours after we've got your payment.

DEPARTURE DATE:
Trips are "self-driven". That means they are not pre-organized group trips, but individual ones, so you can start on the date that is more convenient for you, no need to adapt to prefixed dates.

HOW MANY DAYS DOES A TOUR TAKE?
Actually our trips are not divided into days but we describe here the whole trips. You can divide any of them on your own as you like, or you can send us a request by email, and we will prepare a day-per-day version of it with all the required files: see below "ROADBOOK WITH CUSTOMIZED ITINERARY"

4 - Universal .GPX file for GPS devices, created from the original .kml file. This file probably has to be adapted to your device according to its performance (see instructions of the manufacturer of your GPS).
