FAQs

  • What exactly is a Road Book?
    A road book is a detailed guide used mainly in adventure trips, especially during 4x4 raids or expeditions. It is essentially a document that describes the route to be followed, step by step, with precise indications on roads, paths, points of interest, distances, directions to be taken and possibly information on weather conditions, accommodation or services available along the route. For 4x4 adventures, a road book is a vital resource because it guides participants through terrain that is sometimes difficult to navigate, off the beaten track. This allows participants to stay on track, plan stops and stages, and ensure that they safely explore areas that are often remote and little frequented. Live an adventure without the constraints of tedious upstream preparations and without too much risk of having to turn around if you had followed a track that ends nowhere. Once it's adventure, 10 times it's annoying and 100 times it spoils the pleasure of your vacation.

  • Do I have to equip my vehicle with special equipment?
    You will travel alone or with a few friends. In order not to get stuck, it is sometimes prudent to bring a minimum of tools for the vehicle as well as a few tools in order to clear a track cluttered by a branch. In any case, never leave without a spare wheel in good condition of the same reference as the mounted tires. Also think about the anti-theft nut. Each of our Road Book includes a section dedicated to take-away equipment.
  • How do you prepare your Road Books?
    To create our 4x4 roadbooks, we have a meticulous process that combines local expertise, detailed mapping and practical experience. Here is an overview of our process: 1. In-depth research of the region: We carefully study the region where the raid will take place. This includes field exploration, consultation of detailed maps, as well as exchanges with local experts to understand specific particularities both on the ground and local culture and tourist points. 2. Selection of tracks and points of interest: We identify the tracks and paths adapted to the raid according to the difficulty, landscapes and local attractions. We also integrate points of interest such as natural sites, picturesque villages or panoramic stops. 3. Validation of routes: The nicest and also the longest work... on-site recognitions. We compare theory and practice to ensure feasibility, safety and compliance with our environmental criteria. To create a RoadBook day we estimate that it takes between 3 and 6 days on site. Especially since we validate our Road Books in different seasons in order to better advise you. 4. Detailed documentation: We then create, once all the data has been analyzed, the detailed Road Book including maps, route descriptions, specific indications on the tracks, refuelling points, bivouac or camping places, charming hotels, as well as information on possible challenges or obstacles encountered along the way. 5. Regular update: Our Road Books are constantly re-evaluated and updated according to changes occurring in the region that may affect the route. You are invited to participate in the updates. Your travel returns are valuable for improving and maintaining each itinerary. You don't want to travel alone? GreenTracers also offers Family Adventure Raids. Visit the dedicated part of the site via this link.
