Stelvio Raid is a successful Raid Road Trip through Tunisia, in a land with a continuous changing landscape. Over the last years many participants and enthusiasts run this raid and often it was their first time in Africa!
An exciting runalong Tunisian roads, from North to South, from the city of Tunis to the hairpin turnsof the mountain oasis of Chebica, Tamerza and Mides. Then the arrival to Tozeur and to the long back straight going through and dividing Chott el Djerid lake. Then again on the move, on the asphalt strip between El Farouar, Sabria and Douz dunes. The bends and the bumps in Dahar Hills will follow us until Chenini and Tatauine, before we reach the sea in front of Hammamet.
The raid is open to any motorbike, with passenger too, and is basically planned on the road, with the (optional) possibility of reaching off-road tracks with amazing panorama.
