Nordkapp Adventure 2015 – It all started in 2009 when our friend from Matulji (Rijeka) in Croatia started his first adventure. That was a start of an adventurous life that lasts up to this day. The goal was Albanian mountain massif Prokletije. Today, Prokletije adventure sounds like a piece of cake. In the following years he decided to continue with his adventures but this time it was just one car – his Russian UAZ.
Adventure Transbalkan, Meteora and Kavkaz were a big intro for his 2014 adventure called Pamir 2014. He traveled for 17,800 kilometres with his wife on the passenger seat. Passing through Europe and Asia he finally arrived to Pamir, a mountain located mostly in Tajikistan, but partly covering Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan and Afghanistan. The couple traveled for 47 days.
Due to some problems, this year the goal for the UAZ team is easier. The plan was a 50-60 day travel to Mongolia. But they’ll have to be satisfied with less than that.
North Cape (Norwegian: Nordkapp) is a cape on the northern coast of the island of Magerøya in Norway. Adventure NORDKAPP Adventure 2015 started 6 days ago. Planned route is 10000 to 11000 kilometers long and lasts for about 25 days. Hungary, Slovakia, Poland, Lithuania, Russia, Norway and back through Lapland, Finland, Poland, home.
After 6 days of travel they are in Russia at the moment, entering Norway soon and coming close to their final destination. Although, bear in mind the adventure will last for 25 days. So you’ll be updated soon. Wish them luck!
