Active Adventure

Welcome to our Italy Tuk-Tuk Adventure – The ultimate combination of Italian adventure and cultural immersion! Plenty of people have seen Italy. But how many people have seen Italy from behind the wheel of a traditional Italian Piaggio Ape (which, as far as we can tell, is a tuk-tuk with an Italian accent)? We don't know for sure, but we reckon it's somewhere between 'basically a few' and 'maybe not that many people'. The tuk-tuk you will be driving on his great Italian adventure will be a classic Piaggio Ape, as you might imagine, being Italian, its naturally better looking and just that tiny bit sexier than all other tuk-tuks. Are you with us so far? Good.

Anyway, on this week-long Italian tuk-tuk adventure – during which you'll drive around as part of a team or 2/3 and complete challenges to accrue points – through northern Italy, you'll channel your inner alter ego "I am a participant on Race Across the world or Amazing race" while being dumbfounded by rugged Italian beauty and spending very large chunks of time getting wonderfully lost down idyllic country lanes.

Simply delicious… This is a country of culture: Pavarotti, mozzarella, gelato, Michelangelo, fashion, the Mafia, vineyards, the Roman history, pizza, etc. And while Vespas might be the two-wheeled vehicle of choice in this fine and very delicious nation, there is a superior way to get around. That's right, Ferraris tuk-tuks.

Typical Day

After breakfast you hop onto your tuk-tuk and find your way to the next check-point. On the way you will complete challenges (optional). In the evening you meet for dinner with the other teams and take about the adventure you had finding your way to the check-point.

Age range, type of group

Yes, you've got to be at least 18 years old in order to participate. We don't have a maximum age, but if you're over 65 we definitely recommend checking with your insurer to make sure you qualify for the medical insurance you'll need to take part. The Challenge is physically tough, but by no means extreme – we won't sugar-coat it. You should really only take part if you're in decent physical shape and your health is A-Okay.

Sleeping and meals

Getting sweaty and dirty when you have a nice bed to look forward to is fun; getting dirty when all you have to look forward to is more dirt is no fun at all. That's why we like to look after you after a hard day on the open road: a few nights in some lovely handpicked hidden rustic gems and a few nights in some pretty awesome boutique hotels tucked away in the hills. We'll also chuck in delicious breakfasts during the challenge.
