The Longest Adventure Rally On The Planet


The Atlantic Pacific Ocean Drive is kicking off for the first time ever. Be among the first intrepid souls to rev up for the world premiere of the longest rally on the planet! It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, especially because only a limited number of teams will be permitted to sign up.

Rally data and application

Start: no date yet
Registration: on hold

Start of the Rally

Hamburg, Germany
The official rally start will take place in Hamburg.

Finish Line

Vladivostok, Russia
Since each team can set its own pace during the rally, the finish line in Vladivostok will be open for you for a few days. At the finish line, you will receive your rally certificate as well as support with the handling of the vehicle return transport.

Winners ceremony

So that all teams can celebrate the successful end of the Atlantic Pacific Ocean Drive together, we celebrate a big finish party with award-giving-ceremony back in Hamburg.

Your Charity

Collect €750 for great charity projects.
The money can go to projects that we have carefully vetted to ensure that all contributions go where they should—to the people who truly need them. Or you are free to pick a charity project that has always been dear to your heart.
Charity donations can be collected any time from the date you sign up to the moment you cross the Finish Line. More

There is no designated maximum value for your rally vehicle.

You can still sign up even if you haven’t gotten your vehicle yet. You have until the start of the rally to find your perfect set of wheels.

How many members can a team have?

There's no upper limit, you just all have to fit in the vehicle.


No GPS, no navigation system, limited highway driving = a bigger and better adventure.

Party Time

So that you and your team get to know your fellow rallying rough riders, we’re organizing a huge “Goodbye, Europe” party somewhere along the way. The exact location? We’ll let you know at the start!


It’s a rally, not a race, so set your own pace. Your Roadbook provides you with various opportunities to throw even more unknowns into your adventure. You’ll get the Roadbook at the rally start in Hamburg.
