This tour is exactly the dune bashing experience you are looking for as advanced Enduro riders. You will ride straight into the dunes and will be bashing them during 3 full days until you fall off the bike or you run out of fuel. The only limit is your gas tank.

The tour will occur in stages day-to-day, meaning you will spend each night in an authentic desert camp you build by yourselves. Dining on handmade food cooked by locals and nomads from the region prepared in front of you on the open fire in the desert.

Once you are deep into the Sahara, you will officially be "off the grid" - outside the range of any mobile network and away from civilization, leaving you to manage on your own. You'll spend three days in the desert forgetting all things you think that are important and you may not miss, like Facebook and Instagram, e-mails and calls. During this time, you'll have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience being virtually alone among the dunes of the Sahara, at peace and removed from the modern world.
