The best spot is where the sky is clear - on a particular day that might be hundreds of km inland if it is cloudy on the coast.

How are your winter driving skills ? Tourists skid off the road on a daily basis and with a child - definitely safety first !

With proper planning and great care taken, you can travel almost anywhere with a child.

You already had lots of advice about winter driving - https:/…89113843


You need to drive where the skies are clear so need to understand weather forecasts and be prepared to drive hundreds of km in the middle of the night.

You have opened or contributed to dozens of threads with fragmentary questions on your trip. You’d get better advice if you posted your full itinerary and kept to that thread.
