The Alps-Crossing

Driven by passion. Powered by “Elferspot Experience”

After years of matching up Porsche 911’s with new happy owners we have now finally taken the step to offer experiences to match the sheer passion and commitment between all the 911’s fans around the world. There are plenty of driving experiences on offer in the market but we at Elferspot have chosen a route that follows our market space – so we offer trips in well prepared Porsche 911’s going to locations you normally would never go with your own Porsche 911. We will always be present at the trips so we finally get to meet you personally.

We have teamed up with Jan Kalmar Beyond Adventure to ensure high level of uniqueness and spot on quality with their unique driving adventures. Welcome to our bespoke Elferspot Experience.

The Alps-Crossing

 

The Alps are the highest and the most extensive mountain range in Europe. The highest point – Mont Blanc with its 4,810m – is on our route but unfortunately, there are no roads to the top, so instead we go under the mountain!

The Alps have so much more to offer. Amazing gravel roads, small mountain passes, beautiful villages, its own flora and fauna and of course astonishing views. The heart of the Alps is very well known to many travelers, but right next to the crowded tourist routes Beyond Adventure will take you to breath- taking gravel paths that are paving their way from one mountain pass to another.

Surprising spots where endless serpentine roads are hidden between the 100 Alps’ peaks higher than 4,000m. 4 countries and 10 mountain passes tell only a small part of the story. And as the scenery is not enough – we turn up the experience with our unique cars offered. You can choose between the specially developed Porsche 911 (964/993) Safari Edition with its special terrain set-up.

 

I could not believe what sort of roads were to be found right next to the main tourists routes over the Alps. Jan Kalmar, founder Beyond Adventure

Individual Approach

We demand an unique and distinctive experience but never to loose flexibility and individual approach. Besides the bespoke cars and amazing routes a major difference lies in a unique Classic Rally-Style Driving Concept developed by our partner. A concept where you are not competing for the fastest time but instead for the most precise timing. This means you drive and navigate by yourself independently. Of course, the support team is always close by and for the most challenging stages, the entire group stays together.

The Alps-Crossing – simply an exciting, unique and so unexpected drive on incredible roads through stunning mountain scenery. A fantastic unforgettable driving experience that exceeded our expectations by far – we can’t wait for the next adventure to come. Lois & Howard, Singapore

Your Team

The passion for adventures is deep within our vastly experienced partner. Challenges and action goes without saying but still you will never be alone in case of an emergency, break down or a simple puncture. The support team is always close by with a solution. So the best of both worlds, freedom to enjoy on your own but support and team spirit when needed. On the trip mechanics are always present to check and prepare the cars every evening, as the routes does even challenge the normally bulletproof Porsche 911’s.

The on-site team also include two organizers to ensure all is ready for you when you arrive to the overnight stays. Behind the scenes, a team of travel experts is on-call from start to finish following your progress via GPS tracking for your safety and comfort – always ready to support.

This special experience starts as soon as you contact our partner. You get your “own” contact person who will be there for you all the way. The real adventure starts at the arrival airport, from there all is taken care of, all the way to the departure airport. Get ready to explore the world you never knew existed… the extraordinary world!

Let the adventure begin!

The course of each day

Day 1

The Experience starts at Stuttgart Airport where you will be picked up by the team. A short shuttle to the hotel located in the middle of any car enthusiast’s dream. Here “your” car is waiting for you. A team introduction is on the program followed by a car and Classic Rally Concept introduction. The welcome dinner awaits you – surrounded by special automobiles in all shapes and forms. Now it’s time to relax before the driving begins tomorrow.

Day 2

Let the Adventure begin! We start easy by adapting to the cars which shall get you over many mountain passes over the next days. Today we drive the back roads from Stuttgart via the Black Forest to the foot of the Alps. The first small pass will open your view towards the mighty Mont Blanc as a small appetizer for all the amazing views to come. First stop will be a great lunch in one of the oldest ski resorts in France – Chamonix.

After lunch, be prepared for leaving the busy Alpine capital of the world and passing under the highest mountain in Europe – Mont Blanc – yes, of course via one of the longest tunnels in Europe.

Enjoy the night in Chalet Le Rocher in Val d’Isère, a beautiful mountain village. Total KM: 509

Day 3

In the morning you will head directly to the skies on tarmac roads. Enjoy it while you can as soon that will change and the surface will transform into gravel roads connecting the mountain ranges, letting you explore your skills and limitations of the cars.

The route may be short in distance but rich in breath-taking views, action-packed roads and full of places unknown to most, which will give you memories that will last forever.

Enjoy lunch packs on the go and after a day of exploring new routes, soothe yourself with a Piemonte wine tasting and Italian dinner as our drive will end in an authentic, overnight stay, maybe even with a soft roof…

Total KM: 142

Choose between Hotel or Camp

Day 4

Prepare yourself for a day full of serpentine gravel roads, challenging you to reach limits for both you and your car. Remember to finish first – first you have to finish, so take good care of your cars and your heartbeat. Heading to Col du Sommeiller with its close to 3,000m altitude making it one of the highest drivable roads in the Alps. At the top, you will enjoy your picnic lunch next to the stunning blue turquoise lake.

Steer back down towards the valley and start climbing over a low pass before the real navigation challenge starts when you need to find your “own” way over the Col du Granon mountain pass. Heads up

– keep going when you see “no entry” sign!

Relax in the heart of the Alps after a day full of driving and thrill of emotions contemplating the beautiful mountain view.

Day 5

How can it be possible to add more after 3 days of astonishing nature and mountain views? Well, get ready for today!

You will drive to Col d’Izoard for a quick warm-up before the big climb to the Col du Parpaillon.

Here you will meet the 520m tunnel, the highest in Europe, carved out of the mountain, a must see experience for all modern explorers. Your lunch can be enjoyed on the sunny side of the tunnel before you work your way down along of the most amazing track you can imagine.

Don’t forget to have your cameras ready and be prepared for the view that will surely take your breath away in addition to the rather thin air. After a stunning driving day enjoy well-deserved timeout before an even more thrilling day tomorrow.
