人車合一 馳騁世界
Extreme Off-roading

所謂自駕,重點絕對在於“自”,以自主、自由的方式審視世界的浩瀚,飛馳漫天風雪、跨越大漠風塵、征服崎嶇山路。
Freedom is one of the biggest appeals of off-roading. On the road through snowstorms, deserts and mountains, the world is your oyster.

芬蘭極光魅幻

作為北歐五國之一,芬蘭有著絢爛的北極光、燦爛的午夜陽光、唯美的玻璃屋、如同藍寶石的湖泊和綠綢緞般的森林,童話般的聖誕老人村,這裡還有潔淨的空氣,順暢的交通、以及看似高冷卻內在熱情的芬蘭人。近年來,愈來愈來越多人開始前往這個極佳旅遊地探索,而自駕則是深入瞭解芬蘭的最好方式之一。

位於北極圈內的拉普蘭,一年有一半時間都被積雪覆蓋著。置身其中作雪上駕駛,絕對是不可多得的駕駛體驗;至於距離拉普蘭約兩小時車程的小鎮列維有著更佳的極光視野,您可以在毫無光污染的曠野上欣賞極光。試想像,跟深愛的人於車廂中聆聽動人的情歌,前往欣賞魅幻的極光,任誰也會意亂情迷。

相對於城市中的駕駛感受,雪地駕駛就是可以給駕駛者一種無拘無束,感受大自然奧妙的暢快體驗,享受著輪胎濺起陣陣雪花的風馳電掣、以及由於地面濕滑需要駕駛者高度集中的刺激感覺。誠然,雪上駕駛跟平常路面上行駛的感覺大不同,駕駛者需多加注意,例如,當行駛時車上有積雪,剎車時積雪會掉落至前窗玻璃上,遮擋視野,更嚴重的可能因地面濕滑而出現輪胎打滑情況,後果可以非常危險。即使仍然可以如常駕駛的視野,也必須考慮到天氣進一步惡化的可能性。如果開始感覺到周圍不易看清,就要減慢速度,謹慎行駛才可以樂在其中。

Finland: Mesmerising Aurora

A Scandinavian country, Finland is known for its dazzling northern lights, midnight sun, glasshouses, sapphire-coloured lakes and lush forests. A visit to the Santa Claus Village is a childhood dream come true, while the clean air and smooth traffic put people at ease. The Finnish may seem reserved at first, but they are passionate people at heart. Tourism in Finland is growing in recent years, and driving is one of the best ways to explore the country.

Located in the Arctic circle, Lapland is covered in snow half of the year. Driving in the snow is a one-of-a-kind experience. Just two hours from Lapland is a small town called Levi, which offers a high chance of aurora sightings and excellent views. It will not be a bad idea to put on love songs in the car, since the open landscape free of light pollution offers the most romantic experience.

Compared to driving in cities, a trip on the snow is a lot more exciting. It is a great way to explore nature as well as the sense of freedom. Snowflakes are splashed into the air as the car goes. A high level of focus must be maintained at all times because of the wet and slippery ground. If snow has accumulated on the car on the journey, it may drop to the windshield as it brakes and blocks the view. More dangerously, the car may even skid. Even if the view is not entirely blocked, the possibility of worsening weather must be considered. In case of lowered visibility, slow down. Driving is enjoyable only when it is safe.


柬埔寨越野探索

從極地的北歐駛到熱情的柬埔寨,這裡除了擁有百年歷史的石造廟宇、宏偉宮殿遺跡群之外,亦可找到新奇刺激的駕駛體驗。說的是大受遊客喜愛的全地形越野車,由於體積輕巧、易於操控,只要稍經導師指導,您即可享受風馳電掣的快感,化身《奪宝奇兵》主角一般於金邊近郊飛馳,體驗駕馭與冒險的感覺。

全地形越野車可跨越泥地、沙灘、草原等艱難徒步的越野地形,在歐美國家相當盛行,也成了遊客來到柬埔寨必試的體驗之一,奔馳在柬埔寨鄉村田野間,任由風吹亂頭髮、沙塵弄髒衣服,此種率性正是荒野飆客的最高精神。

在當地駕駛這類車不需要執照,當然有基本駕駛知識會比較好,誠然,整台車只需一隻姆指便可控制,加上教練在出發前一對一的指導,即便是新手,也能安心玩個痛快,如果依然擔心,導師也可以全程於後座協助。路線長短和難度各有不同選擇,最簡單的路線會經過郊區,穿梭於稻田之間,亦有機會近觀村莊。
玩半日或全日的長途路線,更有機會探索森林、河流,沿途欣賞不一樣的柬埔寨風景。

Cambodia: Off-Road Expeditions

Tropical Cambodia is surely very different from arctic Finland. Apart from the ancient temples and World Heritage sites, the country also offers thrilling driving experience in all-terrain vehicles. The light-weight automobiles are easy to control and drivers can speed through the countryside of Phnom Penh like in “Indiana Jones” immediately after instructor’s briefing.

All-terrain vehicles are operable on beaches, muddy and grass terrains. They are very popular in Europe and America. Now the activity has reached Cambodia and become a must-do for tourists. It is a unique experience to drive between the village fields as the wind blows and sand whirls.

No licence is required for this particular type of vehicle in Cambodia. However, basic motoring knowledge is always helpful. The car is controlled by just a thumb. An instructor will brief the participant one-on-one before the journey, and it is generally safe even for novices. If one is still worried, the instructor can assist in the back seat. There are options of different lengths and difficulties. The simplest ones go through paddies and villages, while the halfday and full-day routes go into forests and across rivers. Each of them offers a different view of Cambodia.


杜拜火舞黃沙

假如說雪地駕駛是膽識的挑戰,越野體驗是冒險的感受,那麼,在沙漠上駕駛,講求的,就是極致的技術與豐富的汽車知識!近年,一些SUV汽車愛好者喜愛組織自駕隊伍,征服杜拜市區外的浩瀚沙漠。同時,坊間亦有不少沙漠自駕體驗團,給駕駛技術超卓的您一展身手。

沙漠自駕的魅力在於征服各種惡劣路面,考驗的就是車輛的通過性,這涉及到車輛的設計,比如軸距、接近角、離去角、四驅系統等等。一般來說,軸距越短通過性越高,但穩定性就會相應的降低;四驅則是脫困的保障之一。即便是車輛工程師,單靠在車內的目測也無法判斷車輛在實際越野路況的通過性。遇到不
確定路況最好的辦法就是下車探路,並且讓同行人員在車外根據實際情況來指揮。沙漠自駕是人與人之間互相協助的過程。隨著自信心的增長,您可以嘗試更陡峭的沙丘。在享受沙漠之旅的同時,不要忘記停下來捕捉沙漠綠洲的生動景象。

Dubai: Desert Dunes

If driving on the snow is about courage and forest expedition is about adventure, then driving in a desert is the ultimate combination of skills and knowledge in your vehicle. In recent years, some SUV aficionados team up to explore the vast desert outside Dubai. There are also dune driving experience in the market for those who want to give it a go.

Driving in the desert involves handling a variety of difficult terrains. It is a trafficability challenge of the wheelbase, approach angle, departure angle and the torque-on-demand system. In general, a shorter wheelbase means a higher trafficability but lower stability, while the four-wheel drive prevents the car from being trapped. Even for a car engineer, it is impossible to detect the trafficability of a car in difficult terrains with naked eyes while staying inside the car. In case of uncertainty, it is best to explore the road ahead on foot and have someone outside the car to direct according to the actual situation. Traversing
a desert is about teamwork. With growing confidence, one can explore steeper dunes. As you explore the desert, do not forget to stop and record the interesting scenes there as well as in the oasis.
