VW Amarok stars in epic new rough guide

Volkswagen Amarok pick-up

A striking green Volkswagen Amarok is the subject of a glossy new 220-page coffee table travel book.

From Sweden to Gran Canaria and Ukraine all the way to Portugal, the Amarok Adventure Guide presents 16 off-road routes with varying levels of difficulty.

In all, the big pick-up from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles travelled more than 18,500 miles through 16 European countries to experience the best off-road tracks and trails available on the continent.

Each chapter of the book is dedicated to a route in a different country, with details of the location and specific off-road challenges, plus a dose of history, culture and cuisine. There’s also an additional section on the vehicle itself, plus 10 top off-roading tips and a “making of’ chapter.

While in the UK, the Amarok passed through the 2,000 hectare Sweet Lamb complex in Montgomeryshire, Wales, where Volkswagen topped off 12 titles in four years in the Polo R WRC back in October 2016 at the Rally Great Britain, the climax of the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC).

The Amarok coped well in the ample mud that Sweet Lamb provided when the book team came to Wales, thanks to its four-wheel drive and axle articulation, plus stable ladder frame and after-fit snorkel.
