The Sun Trip – Destination Sahara” It will be a loop of about 7000 km to go to the first sand dunes of the Sahara, in the south of Morocco. Between the checkpoints we will find the idea of a free route and the adventurers will not benefit from any assistance.

Some checkpoints have already been announced: the Pierre Saint Martin pass in the Pyrenees, the Cabo Espichel lighthouse (south of Lisbon), Chefchaouen / Rabat, the Tizi n’Test pass, Laâyoune (for racers) / Sidi Ifni (for travelers) and the Dades Valley for Morocco, and finaly Molina de Aragon in central Spain on the way back.
