A Great Caucasus Offroad Adventure (2017)


We actually wanted to drive from Germany to Russia in Uli’s Russian sovjet van – but after 73 kilometers and a seized piston, the trip was over and we spontaneously started a completely different journey:

We only needed one afternoon to come up with a plan for a new, exciting trip. We used our Russian visa and flew directly to Saint Petersburg to see this wonderful city. From there we took a plane to the small border town of Vladikavkaz in North Ossetia-Alania – in the politically dangerous south of Russia.

Uli has friends there who we visit and who show us their homeland from their perspective. From there we take a taxi to the Georgian border and from we take a minibus to the capital Tbilisi. There we rent an off-road vehicle with which we explore the remote valleys of the Caucasus and master one of the most difficult roads in the world. We drive to the south of Armenia and can see Iran on the other side of the border fence, as well as the burnt houses in Nagorno-Karabakh. We sleep where we can pitch our tent. It is a wonderful, spontaneous off-road adventure that I will never forget!
