Climate Endurance Special Travel

This year three intrepid/foolish Canterbury men will assemble under the 'Kiwi Traveller' banner to spend up to six weeks driving a "small and s**t" car through 21 countries from England to Mongolia, ending in Russia.

That’s 15,000 kilometres (to put this in context, the circumference of Earth at the equator is about 40,000kms).

It's called The Mongol Rally - and the route we’ve chosen will take us through are England, France, Germany, Austria, Romania, Serbia, Bulgaria, Turkey (this is where its gets extra interesting)... Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Russia and Mongolia.

Starting in London on July 16th 2017, there are just three simple rules to the Mongol Rally:

Rule 1: The vehicle must be “small & s**t”.

Rule 2: No outside help - once it starts, we’re on our own.

Rule 3: We must "Save The World" - i.e. raise money for charity.

Mongol rules state at least 500 pounds (around NZ$900) must go to Cool Earth, which buys back rainforest to protect. (

We’ve decided everything else we raise (hopefully several thousand) will go towards Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue - which some of you may know played a critical role in saving Scotty’s life after a nasty crash in North Canterbury just before Christmas 2015. (
