About CarChallenge

CarChallenge has a reputation to uphold when it comes down to Monster Trips. From Amsterdam to Singapore, from Paramaribo to Lima, straight through the Amazon and across the Andes to the southernmost city of the world, to cross all the deserts of Australia or right though Russia towards Tokyo, Japan. A Challenge in which driving is key. And yes, with your very own car!

What is CarChallenge

With every Challenge we are looking for special and unique routes, for challenges that aren’t always too obvious. It’s all about creativity and testing your ingenuity. But also about the amazement of driving through the most astonishing places of this very planet, and about being marveled by peculiar cultures in places normal tourists would never end up.

“Even from a young age, I have always followed my inner curiosities. The price being a bruise here and there, different views from others and even disappointments. Yet it gave me so much more knowledge, energy and insight. This combination inspires me every single day to explore the edges of my area of expertise. An exploration leading to less general ideas, cultivated into innovation.“

Jan Willem Koudstaal

Founder

The services CarChallenge has to offer

Car-adventure which creates a unique and personal story for every participant.

The areas
We travel
We traverse regions that are far from commonplace. The world’s most famous and inhospitable grounds such as Siberia, the Outback, the Amazon, the Andes mountain range or the fields of Mongolia will be conquered.
The idea
Creating stories
A Challenge is an experience that becomes a part of you. An experience never to forget, often craving for more. This is what sets Challenge apart from any other touring trip, we consciously choose for challenge and leave the driving of mundane roads to others.
For whom
For everyone having a passion for driving and willing to discover unique routes, areas and cultures.

The World Challenge

Literally a global challenge. A trip around the world – with your car. Every year a new journey, through Europe, North and South-America, Asia, Australia and Africa.

Countries: 60

25 Collen Challenge

Driving 25 mountain passes is fun and exciting. But 25 passes in only four stages is almost top sport. We challenge you to conquer the most beautiful mountain passes of the Alps and to get the best both out of yourself and out of your car. Not only the well-known, but also the less known, the hidden gems, will be included.

Countries: 3
