30,000 kilometres.

If the milk and bread run isn't ticking the boxes when it comes to getting use out of your 4x4, Porsche has a huge curveball that could recalibrate your travel plans for the rest of the year.

Luxury SUV's have earnt a stigma as of late, with no more than 1% (made this up, but highly likely) of them ever seeing anything dirtier than a gravel estate driveway. Only a handful of manufacturers are prepared to offer customers the chance to really put their vehicles through the wringer, and Porsche is one of them.

Covering a staggering 30,000km, the six legs of the World Porsche Expedition take participants to some of the finest roads in the world, mixed in with the roughest in sand, desert, gravel, and snow.

The expertly scouted and scoped routes are designed to maximise the potential of the Porsche Cayenne's dynamics, giving drivers one hell of an adrenaline-fuelled experience at the limits of both themselves and their cars.

Spend your nights at elegant hotels, desert camps or jungle treehouses in some of the most remote corners of the globe. You also free to pick and choose from the options below, or boldly sign up for the full 30,000km dash around the world.
