We meet on the Saturday night at the campsite in Tende, after an evening of introductions with the group we our ready to start our tour on the Sunday morning. We will spend 6 days traveling along trails high in the Alps plus 1 rest day to finish on the following Saturday early afternoon.
We will aim to leave the camp every morning at 09.30 hrs so a smallish quick pack up tent is essential. There will be mixture of campsites and Wild camping.
We will be doing around 60 miles per day, some may be more if long road sections allow. We aim to be at the camp/campsite around 17.30.
Note:- Below is a typical tour of this route, the route may change due to trail closures.
Due to a new tunnel bore at Tende a trail we normally use is currently closed, we are expecting it to be reopened and also we expect a new trail to be re-opened that has been closed for a few years which we can hopefully drive.
This trip is open to any well maintained 4×4 vehicle.
Supermarkets / Provisions
You will need provisions for the duration of driving days. In France & Italy shops are shut for long periods in the day and nearly all close on Sundays, apart from the hypermarkets. We will obviously be stopping at supermarkets.
Most campsites have small shops for basic provisions.
