Italy-Nordkapp Continental Classic Raid



To send email communications to participants and crews, we use a program that your email client (outlook / Gmail / etc ..) could, in some cases, classify as SPAM. For this reason, if you do not receive our emails, we suggest you check the SPAM box, you will probably find our email there. If, on the other hand, you still do not receive communications from the staff, write to or on the RaidTribe Facebook group and we will check.

Important : sending communications via e-mail is safe and is the channel that the organization uses to keep updated the participants. Sometimes, however, the e-mail messages may not arrive at their destination, for various reasons, so always remember that it is your responsibility to also check the other channels of the event to stay updated on any news, changes or program changes.

RaidTribe events Facebook public group:

In RaidTribe events you are 100% responsible for your Adventure.

The Staff will provide you with an extraordinary route to follow, information that makes the difference, unprecedented media coverage and colorful traveling companions with whom you can share memorable experiences, thus enabling you to take part, even as a beginner, in spectacular Adventures. Having said that, however, remember that we remain faithful to the concept of Adventure and during the events you will not receive any support or assistance from the Staff. These are not motorcycle supported rallies, but autonomous adventures.

From departure until arrival you will be completely free to establish your strategy and your schedule, decide when to stop, where to rest, where to eat and how to deal with and manage the changing conditions and the fantastic territories that will parade alongside you along the way.

Without support it means that you will not receive help from the Staff and that you will not be able to have vehicles in tow, but you are free at any time to provide and receive support from the other crews or to contact whoever you want (workshops, commercial activities, hotels, restaurants, etc. ) to solve technical problems and needs of all kinds.

From the moment of departure and until arrival, the Staff will follow you along the entire route only with control functions and to document your Adventure, with photographers and video makers, creating incredible contents that will be launched on the event channels, live, for the entire duration of the event.

Each crew will also receive a satellite app or device capable of tracking the position on the live map of the event at any time, thus allowing fans from all over the world, friends and relatives, to follow your Adventure live. It is the obligation of each crew to constantly track their position on the event map.

Now it’s up to you and your Vespa, there is a whole world out there to conquer.

20 years ago, almost by chance, we decided to embark, as self-taught and chasing a romantic idea, on long expeditions by land in extreme territories located in every corner of the planet. It was a splendid madness that changed our lives in a radical and incredibly positive way, a madness that, living it all on our skin and learning from our mistakes, taught us every aspect of this wonderful world of two-wheeled adventure raids.

The first lesson we learned as self-taught is that things happen first in our mind and then in reality. And the Adventure, like everything else, follows the same rules. It requires a preparatory mental switch that tunes us to the desire to put ourselves to the test and to that magnificent feeling of uncertainty and epic, so far from everyday life, but typical of overland raids. Our mission is to bring people to live in a real and fulfilling world made of challenges, infinite roads to rest your eyes on and above all, a magnificent side effect for which perhaps we really do, return to feel alive and at the helm of our own life.

The second precious lesson that the Adventure has revealed to us is that the fears that always accompany the Adventures by land before departure often remain only fears that then do not turn into reality. This does not mean that the Adventure must be faced lightly, on the contrary, it requires awareness and a sense of responsibility, but on the basis of dozens of Raids we can tell you with sufficient certainty that in every corner of the planet you will probably find, in case of problems, someone ready to help you who will surprise you with his support and his goodness of mind.

The world out there is not just what the media portray and people immediately fall in love with the stories of those who have the courage to tackle hundreds of kilometers or an entire continent on a 30-year-old Vespa or moped. You will see it with your own eyes and the reason, if you think about it, is quite simple: it is the dream that almost everyone would like to realize.

Registrations for the 2023 Edition of the NordKapp Classic Raid will open on 1 November 2022 at 15 pm Italian time and will close on december 31, 2022. For the 2023 edition a maximum of 100 crews (single or couple) will be admitted, once this number is reached registrations will be automatically closed.

The registration procedure will take place on the event website ( through a simple and fast procedure with Paypal payment system.

To register for the NordKapp Classic Raid 2023 you need to:

– accept the disclaimers and the event regulations during the registration procedure
– enter all the required data and proceed with the payment of the registration fee. Once you have completed the registration and payment procedure, you will be 100% sure that you are on board.

Registrations will remain open until  31 december 2022 (from 1 November 2022 to 15 December 2022 price 1 – from 16 december 2022 to 31 december 2022 price 2), subject to exhaustion of places available for crews (100), in that case, the registration page, regardless of the date, will be automatically blocked by the system when the quota is reached and it will no longer be possible to access the event for the 2023 Edition.

The organization may, at any time and at its sole discretion, reserve the right to refuse registration, providing for the immediate reimbursement of the fee paid.

Registration for the event is non-refundable and is valid only for the current edition.

But it is right, and we would like to explain the reasons: unlike other adventure events in RaidTribe we have extremely clear standards of the event and we immediately decided to create an event with certain quality characteristics.

These features have a very high cost.

Whether it is the inspections made by the Staff throughout Europe or the maniacal study with which we provide a track of 4000 km, the complete coverage of the event on the spot with professionals following the raid, 2 service cars and latest generation equipment, or of the GPRS trackers / App included in the registration, as well as the management of an extremely complex transport service that allows you to enjoy only the outward journey without worrying about the return, the NordKapp Classic Raid , at the time of writing, it is the only non-competitive Overland Adventure, which offers and guarantees such a level of quality, services and investments on these mileage and in addition to competitive rally events.

In a micro world like that of Vespa events and overland Raids, this is easily verifiable and since we are sure of what we are saying, we invite you to check: get informed.

Precisely for the standards that we have decided to give to the event since its inception and whatever the number of participants, we undertake in advance to guarantee an unchanged level of quality that does not depend in any way on our Partners and sponsors of the event, incurring huge costs both in the launch phase and later, on the basis of each subscriber to the event.

This is the reason why your registration fee, even if you decide not to use it, will be used to keep the NordKapp Classic Raid active and more and more maintained.

To participate in the Nordkapp Classic Raid it is not necessary to be a member of the Vespa Club or other associations. However, if you are already a member of another Italian Vespa Club, the Vespa Club Firenze Card included in the registration for the event will not overlap with that of your Club to which you belong as it is an internal card of the Florence Club only and is not issued by the Vespa Club Italia.

Cancellation – If, for reasons of force majeure that do not depend on the organization but on environmental and / or health causes at a national or international and / or other level, the event could not take place safely, the event will be canceled, the amount paid at the time of registration will not be refunded but will be considered valid for the next edition.

Relocation – For reasons of force majeure or other serious reasons, which could jeopardize the preparation of the event or the participation in it by a number of people not less than half of the members, the Organization reserves the right to move the place and / or date of the event within the same calendar year. In this case, the fee paid for registration will be valid for the event on the rescheduled date, without increasing costs for members. In this case, it is not possible to move the registration to the following year’s edition.

At the NordKapp Classic Raid, the real heritage of the event is you. You will embark on a memorable two-wheeled experience that will inspire other people, for this reason, once registered you will be the protagonist of the Crews 2023 page. The world needs lightness and positive examples.

During the registration process for the event you will be able to provide us the information that we will use to create the crew page, in particular we will ask you:

Crew category: indicate if single or couple
Name of the crew (Team)
Name of the vehicle
Brand, model and year of the vehicle
Name Sponsor 1 :
Name Sponsor 2 :
Name Sponsor 3 :

In addition to this information and unlike the pages of the TigerMan400 and DawnToDusk300 crews, the crews of the Nordkapp Classic Raid will be placed on the page with a graphics card reserved for each crew which includes, in addition to the photos of the crew members, also the logos of the any sponsor who support the team (up to 3).

You can send us the logos of your sponsors, only by email, to the address:, strictly by February 28, 2023.

On March 15, 2023 the crews page will be online with the list of all the crews participating in the NordKapp Classic Raid.

To participate it is mandatory to be in possession and upon request present to the organization:

IDENTITY DOCUMENTS VALID FOR EVERY COUNTRY CROSSED (identity card for European citizens or passport / visa for non-European citizens)

Furthermore, it is strongly recommended to be in possession of:

TRAVEL INSURANCE (to cover health and repatriation costs)



It is the participant’s sole responsibility to be in possession of the necessary documents to access the various countries crossed by the event.

For European citizens only an identity card is required while for non-European citizens a passport is required, with or without a visa. We therefore invite you to inquire at your consular offices to obtain updated information on the matter.


The Covid situation is constantly evolving but to take part in the event you must absolutely be in possession of covid-19 documentation, valid at the time of the event and certifying vaccines received and / or tampons with negative results and / or healing, accepted in the countries touched.


We strongly advise participants to take out personal health insurance that covers any hospital and repatriation expenses, valid for the entire duration of the event, covering all countries crossed by the NordKapp Classic Raid Edition 2023.

It is the participant’s sole responsibility to be in possession of this documentation, in addition to that required by law, for driving on roads open to traffic, such as driving license, vehicle insurance, road tax and any other mandatory legal documentation.

If we asked you to reach Nordkapp on a modern BMW GS or another Gran Turismo motorcycle, believe us, what would remain as a gift for the years to come would be just the memory of a beautiful journey. Of course, immersed in dream landscapes, but always and only a journey.

At NordKapp Classic Raid we celebrate the Adventure and we aim for the concrete improvement of your life. To do this we need to make you live a truly special story.

For this reason you will cover an epic distance, with always different conditions and on vehicles with timeless charm, but equally precarious and not very powerful.

Whether you participate as a single crew or as a couple, you can take part in the event with:

Vespa or moped with a maximum displacement of 250 cc, with a year of production by 2010.

Depending on the year of production of your vehicle, you will participate in one of the following 3 categories:

Super Classic – Vehicles produced within the year 1985 (max 250 cc)
Classic – Vehicles produced within the year 2000 (max 250 cc)
Modern Classic – Vehicles produced within the year 2010 (max 250 cc)

Each category will be placed in a dedicated Order of Arrival.

Participation in the NordKappClassic is reserved for vehicles with a maximum displacement of 200 cc and with a year of production by 2000, as reported in the vehicle’s booklet and documents. Since the event is a non-competitive Adventure and not a race, the organizer is exempt from checking the starting vehicles to verify compliance with the factory documents. It is therefore always the sole responsibility of the participating crew to respond to possible checks by the police, for non-compliant / elaborated / modified vehicles that do not meet the safety criteria of the highway code.

In the NordKapp Classic Raid you can participate as a crew of two, but only one of the two will be able to drive. It is not allowed to alternate driving the vehicle, which is why, during the registration process for the event, you will have to indicate the name of the driver and that of the navigator.

The NordKapp Classic Raid is a NON-COMPETITIVE Ultra Distance Vespa Raid that takes place on roads open to traffic. The crews are required to be extremely careful and to comply with the rules of the road. This is an event to be faced with a sense of responsibility, awareness and desire to have fun.

Non-EU participants can request the invitation letter to the event staff by 15 February 2023, only by email (, providing:

Copy of the passport
Name / surname / nationality
Period of stay in the EU (from – to)
Type of visa required: usually tourist

The preparation of the invitation letter requires the Staff, from the moment of your request, about a month’s time and will be sent to you by email once ready. Therefore, we recommend foreign participants who are required to have a visa to enter the EU to request the letter immediately after registration in order to activate the procedure for applying for a visa well in advance. Consider that if you apply for a visa with a reduced margin of time, you will be unable, if there is a problem, to resolve it with the Italian representation abroad.

The complete track of the route of the 2023 edition will be sent by email to the participants, indicatively and in a provisional version, about 2 months before departure (end of March), while the definitive version of the route, which you will then upload onto your GPS device or will already find uploaded to the WHIP app, about 1 month before the start of the event (early May). You will thus be able, already from the provisional version, to plan your stops well in advance and the optimal management of the route to the North Cape. Remember that it is your sole responsibility to study the track, organize yourself and anticipate the various aspects of the challenge, including available support and supply points.

Detailed information on the event, the starting point, times and everything you need to enjoy the Nordkapp Classic Raid experience to the fullest is reserved for registered Crews only and will be provided in a complete Digital Guide that is sent by email, to registered Pilots, about 45 days before the event (for the Inaugural Edition of the Nordkapp Classic Raid around mid-April 2023).

Indicatively within the month of February and before the Digital Guide is sent, all Registered Crews will be sent other content regarding Practical Information of various types. Important information that can help Crews organize and manage an Adventure of this magnitude.

Preparing a 4000 km track by choosing the best routes in Europe and the safest roads is a huge commitment and work that we take extremely seriously. It requires months of work and many inspections and given this commitment, we are therefore willing to take this responsibility only for our participating crews.

We therefore remind you that the track of the event is STRICTLY RESERVED to participants only, disclosure or sharing on the internet is NOT ALLOWED, for any reason and on any platform, be it a travel forum or a group of Vespa travel enthusiasts or the NordKapp Classic Raid social group. In the unfortunate event that we find our track available to people NOT participating in the event, we reserve the right to definitively exclude the participant who shared the track from our events.

At the NordKapp Classic Raid, safety comes first. In the 2023 edition, the route is provided by the organization and is the same for all crews, with a dual purpose:

allow the maximum sharing, among the participants, of what is a unique and unrepeatable Experience, letting everyone go through the same path and thus increasing the possibilities of interaction and support between the participants
– allow you to discover some of the most enchanting streets and corners of Europe that we have traced, while minimizing, at the same time, the risks associated with traveling on roads that are not suitable for small displacement motorcycles / mopeds.

With on-site inspections and through cartographic research we have in fact privileged scenic and secondary roads to avoid heavy traffic and dangerous conditions.

It is undeniable, however, even with all our attention and scrupulousness, that we cannot predict in any way the conditions that you will find on the road at the time of the event, so here are some rules for interpreting the track that was provided to you:

At any time and for any reason related to your safety, traffic and road conditions, and therefore including road works, detours and any other imponderable situation that you may encounter along the track we have provided, you are free, to at your discretion, to abandon the track and to resume it as soon as the conditions encountered have ceased and your safety guaranteed again.

You can therefore deviate from the track at any time and then resume it as soon as possible later, using alternative routes at your discretion, if conditions require it. The organization, in any case, will always be able to verify your path and your position, therefore temporary deviations are allowed for the above reasons, but for the purposes of fairness and loyalty, no obvious and unreasonable cut to the path that was given to you.

Remember that the NordKapp Classic Raid is an Adventure in complete autonomy and it is always your responsibility to study the route we have prepared, aware of the fact that if the conditions you will find at the time of the event are different from what was expected, for any reason, you will have always the right to choose another path and to resume the track as soon as possible.

The .gpx file that we send by email to the crews or that you find already loaded on the WHIP app is the result of dozens of hours of work spent on the maps and physically spent on the territory, with the aim of choosing only the most beautiful roads for you and safe as possible. The fixed Route provided by the organization is the added value of RaidTribe events.

Receiving a carefully studied route that you will only have to follow is completely different from inserting a location independently on any navigator. In fact, if you ask a navigator to take you to a specific place, it is he who decides the road, not you.

Navigators don’t take into account the purpose of your trip or whether a scenic route is preferable to the shortest one, they don’t take into account traffic flows and in general, trust me, a million other things. Basically, when you tell the navigator “take me there”, you put yourself in his hands, without knowing in detail the route you will be asked to take.

In RaidTribe events the goal is Fun and this means not only covering the distance between the starting point of the event and its arrival, but doing it in the most spectacular and safest way possible, using only the most beautiful and safest roads , precisely chosen by our staff thanks to the numerous inspections on the territory and cartographic research.

This is exactly the reason why we don’t limit ourselves to simply telling you to go from A to B, (for this a simple navigator would be enough), but instead provide you with a file that will take you, curve after curve, until the completion of the challenge. It will be sufficient to load the file on your GPS or on Google Maps and you will be able to follow it without problems, but with a road chosen and traced by people who have been involved in adventure for over 20 years and with the aim of making you live a unique experience, not by an algorithm.


During the Nordkapp Classic Raid :


You will broadcast your position live on the live map of the event (  – activated a few hours before the event), followed by friends, family and thousands of enthusiasts from home.

You will follow the Fabulous Route provided by the organization


To TRANSMIT your location:


About a week before the event the WHIP satellite service provider will send you an activation link via email (to the email you provided when registering for the event / the email will come directly from Whip and not from RaidTribe / check that the email did not end up in the SPAM box !) as an accredited Pilot and by following the instructions provided you will activate your profile on the app.

Once you have created your profile on the app thanks to the activation link you will find the “Nordkapp Classic Raid” event. Register for the event on the app and from the moment the event starts, from 8 am on Saturday 3 June 2023, your phone, without you having to do anything else, will automatically transmit your position to the live map. Tracking costs are fully covered by the organization.

To FOLLOW THE ROUTE provided you have 3 alternatives, at your complete discretion:



The same satellite App that you will need to install on your phone to broadcast the position live can also be used as a navigator, with convenient voice instructions that will allow you to enjoy the route with greater freedom, without checking your mobile phone screen too often. To use WHIP in navigator mode you will need to activate the PLUS profile.

The PLUS profile is a paid subscription but for the participants of the Nordkapp Classic Raid includes 30 days of free trial period, so you can activate it without any charge and then, at the end of the event, deactivate it immediately, so as not to incur any costs. Deleting the PLUS profile takes 30 seconds and for the navigation experience this app offers, we recommend using this app for route navigation.

Once you have activated the PLUS profile, you don’t have to do anything else, you will find the Nordkapp Classic Raid route already loaded on the app, ready to be followed.


If you have chosen to follow the route using Google Maps you will have to load the track (.gpx file) not on the phone, but by creating a new map starting from MyMaps. No panic, here’s how to do it.

Log in to your Google account (from a pc) and then go to MyMaps:

Click on “Create a New Map

On the next page choose “IMPORT”:

Then select the gpx file sent by the organization and drag it (or add it from the folder where the file is located) into the following screen:

Once Google Maps has processed the file you will see the map with the entire route at your disposal (blue line):

From now on you will always find it available on your Google Drive (app to download for free on your phone) and you can thus view and follow it whenever you want, simply by clicking on it, with the automatic opening of the Google Maps app (also installed on your phone)


If you intend to follow the route using a GPS device, since you already have the device or intend to buy one, you will simply have to connect the GPS to the computer where you have downloaded the track of the route (GPX file) and once you have identified the file folder on the GPS, upload the gpx file. When the device restarts, you should see the track we sent you and at that point it will be sufficient to select it and follow the route on the map, with navigation that is very similar to classic road navigators.

Now all that remains is to have Fun on the most beautiful roads we have chosen for you and if you are wondering how to position the smartphone on the vespa so that you can easily read the route, in point 17 of the faq you will also find the answer to this.

Yes, you can, at any time and at your complete discretion, in these cases:

Reasons related to your safety:

If the conditions you find on the route provided are unsafe for various reasons, from sudden traffic flows, deterioration of the road surface, detours, accidents or other imponderable reasons that you may unexpectedly encounter, you are free to leave the route and re-enter further on, even making cuts if necessary, as soon as the safety conditions on the road have been restored.

Reasons other than security:

If you want to get off the track to visit a place off the track or you want to get to a hotel to spend the night, a restaurant or a mechanical workshop, you can do it without problems, but in this case you have to get back on the track exactly at the point where the you abandoned.

The Nordkapp Classic Raid is not a Race but the most Incredible Adventure that you can experience on the saddle of a Vespa, but given the scope of the Challenge, Fairness and Honesty towards the Riders who share this Raid with you are fundamental so remember, we have few rules but they must be respected.

Whatever the tool with which you will view the route on the screen, you will have to hook your GPS / smartphone to the handlebar of your Vespa / moped.

On the market there are hooks of any kind that can help you travel in a practical and safe way, allowing you to easily read the route. One of the most effective attachments is undoubtedly the one to the rear-view mirror.

You can find different types of hooks simply by searching for “moto gps hooks” or “motorcycle smartphone hooks”.

In the case of physical device: the device, once switched on just before the start, will broadcast live for the entire duration of the event, the position of each crew directly on the live map of the event. The device, to continue broadcasting for 12 days, will have to be occasionally recharged by the participant (we will send the technical data and info with the battery life) and will be delivered to each participant during the meeting on Friday 2 June 2023.

All other sea routes are prohibited.

Fairness and loyalty are the foundations of every Adventure. Participating in the NordKapp Classic Raid means putting yourself to the test in a legendary overland adventure raid, which involves awareness and acceptance of every aspect of the challenge. This includes the autonomous management of any problems and unforeseen events that may arise along the way to Nordkapp.

During this Adventure you will have the opportunity to share the road with many new friends, all united towards the greatest Vespa destination you have ever dreamed of, from these travel companions you can receive help and support if you want and if it will be offered to you, but is strictly prohibited the assistance of external support vehicles, in any form and under disqualification of the crew / participant.

If you arrive in Nordkapp or give up on the way, it will only have to be the result of the management and strategy you have decided to adopt during your Adventure, but in any case, believe us, if lived with loyalty it will be a memorable success.

You will be called to manage a challenge that will profoundly change you, allowing you to experience something that in everyday life is not possible, even at a distance, this includes dealing with unexpected events and sudden changes of plans. Only in this way, we assure you, will you treasure this experience for the rest of your life.

Therefore, in cases where the organization ascertains violations of the regulations or even behavior contrary to the founding values ​​or the spirit and philosophy of the event, it is free to adopt, after direct communication to the crew concerned and possibly there is no repentance on the part of the same team, sanctions of various kinds up, for the most serious cases, to the exclusion of the participant from the event.

The participant’s Live Tracking system during the event and the updating of the position of each crew on the LIVEMAP, is provided free of charge by the organization to each participant, for the entire duration of the event. The service will be supplied via satellite device or app to be downloaded on the phone, at the discretion of the organization. 

It is the obligation of the crews to permanently transmit their position, from the departure in Florence to the arrival at the Nordkapp.

The day before the start of the event, the LIVE page will be activated on the event website (, where it will be possible, through an interactive map, to follow the crews from the first meter to the last, with the possibility to see the live position and other useful navigation data and the territories crossed.

It will thus be possible to follow the event and the position of each Team by fans and friends from all over the world, H24.

In RaidTribe events, safety and media coverage, with live transmission of the position of each crew, have always been of fundamental importance.

For this reason, in every event you take part in, there are two aspects that imply, respectively, safety and the sharing of unique and unforgettable experiences.

In each RaidTribe event it is the Staff that directly provides you, through a GPX file and after a careful study of the maps and in the territories, the complete route to follow. Whether it’s a 300 km or 4000 km route, we’ll take care of it. To follow the route (track) use a GPS or a smartphone + app, completely at your discretion.

By Live Tracking we mean the transmission of the position live, and for the entire duration of the event, on the map that is activated on the RaidTribe website and which allows friends, relatives and Adventure enthusiasts from all over the world to follow your crew. For this purpose, you will be provided, free of charge on loan for free use, with a satellite device that you will always keep on, from departure to arrival, to transmit the position on the live map. Alternatively, at the discretion of the organization, a satellite app may be used.

Today there is a difference from the past, there are powerful power banks and various charging sources that can make the devices last for a long time during the long lasting adventures like the NordKapp Classic Raid.

Before the start of the event, the Staff will check that each departing Vespa / moped has the lighting system in perfect working order, furthermore each crew must be in possession of a reflective jacket and helmet for each member of the crew.

In the NordKapp Classic Raid it is compulsory to pass through 4 Checkpoints scattered along the route. Check points are intermediate points where each participant must pass in order to perform a validation action.

To get to the various Checkpoints, just follow the track provided by the organization (the checkpoints are marked on the gpx file with a flag).

In the NordKapp Classic Raid 2023 the following Checkpoints will be active:

– C1 Munchen (details on location / hours / contacts will follow)

– C2 Berlin (details on location / hours / contacts will follow)

– C3 Stockholm (details on location / hours / contacts will follow)

– C4 Rovaniemi (details on location / hours / contacts will follow)

To carry out the mandatory validation action, which can be implemented 24 hours a day, you can, at your discretion:

Go to the Checkpoint during opening hours. During the opening hours you will find the Check point staff and the validation action will be represented by the affixing of the stamp on your CDP (Carnet De Passage) by the Checkpoint staff.

Go to the Checkpoint during closing times. You will not receive the stamp and you will not find any staff waiting for you, in this case the validation action, verifiable by the organization via satellite, will be your passage in front of the Checkpoint.

The NordKapp Classic Raid 2023 provides for the physical presence of the Staff on the field up to Nordkapp. We are talking about covering the whole of Europe round trip with a fully equipped vehicles and members of the Staff following the event, nevertheless it is easy to understand how, in an event of this magnitude it is very difficult, due to the distances faced daily by crews and staff, also with huge resources, to ensure all participants are present in the photos and videos of the 2023 edition.

The quality and extraordinary number of media content that will be produced by the live event production is usually present in professional rally events with 10 times our budget but we assure you, based on our experience of over 20 years in media production in the field adventure, which we will make you protagonists and at the center of the scene of an unparalleled enterprise.

That said, we therefore ask kindly to understand that it is not possible to ensure the same average coverage for all crews, some will be more present while others less, but only for purely logistical reasons. Your Stories, for us, are all incredible and we will do everything to tell, through interviews, videos and daily contributions made with the utmost care and quality, what it means to participate in such an event and what are the emotions you feel along the road.

Remember that the Nordkapp Classic Raid experience will remain unique and indelible, regardless of whether you have been immortalized or not in the videos, which although beautiful, are only the outline of an Adventure that for most people happens only once in a lifetime, when it happens.

Live the event with serenity and fun, with the sole purpose of taking an extraordinary, incredible parenthesis from your daily life, and we guarantee that you will treasure an experience that will profoundly change the vision of your life and the priorities of everything in your world.

To see the videos, photos and live interviews created by the Staff during each edition, you can follow the Facebook page, the website and the YouTube channel.

The Visitor Center of Nordkapp is open from 06:30 am to 1:00 am (from 18 May to 17 August 2023)

It has shops, 2 restaurants, 1 café, 1 area dedicated to documentaries and the natural heritage of the North Cape.

At the NordKapp Classic Raid you are free to arrive at the North Cape at any time; however, remember that if you arrive at night you will not find the RaidTribe Staff and you will have to stay outside the Visitor Center until opening time from 06:30 am, in fact there are no accommodation facilities in the North Cape, with the exception of free camping with your own tent, which is always possible. 

For the night arrivals the time of finish will be recorded automatically by the tracking system and you will meet the RaidTribe Staff, to get the stamp and the certificate, in the morning.

The RaidTribe Staff will be present at the visitor centre for all the duration of window registration time from june 13 to june 16, every day, from 8.30 am to 1 am.

If you arrive at night (after 1 am and before 9 am) and you are within the 12 day time limit, your registration as a Finisher will take place the next morning and we will consider your last GPS tracking valid for the departure time. arrival at destination.

Tip: Once you arrive in Honningsvag (30 km from Caponord), take stock of the situation and keep in mind, if you arrive in Honningsvag in the evening, that in the North Cape there are no accommodations to stay overnight, so consider, even in the light of the your psychophysical conditions, whether it is the case to arrive at night or, after a few hours of rest in Honningsvag, conquer Caponord in the light of day.

The choice is yours, but always remember that you are in the Arctic Circle and the weather, in Nordkapp, can change at any moment, as can the temperatures.

If you are feeling excessively tired it could be hard to spend a night outdoors.

Conceived to give everyone the extraordinary opportunity to experience a legendary overland raid, the NordKapp Classic Raid is open to different philosophies and roadmaps, this means that you are free to cover the route with the utmost freedom and you can get to Nordkapp whenever you want, equally enjoying the event and its magical atmosphere in every aspect.

However, be aware that to get the 2023 Edition Finisher Certificate and be included in the order of arrival, divided by category according to the crews and the displacement of the Vespa / mopeds, you will have to complete the route and reach Nordkapp in a window registration time open from june 13 to june 16, 2023.

If you arrive in Nordkapp before june 13 or after midnight on June 16, 2023, you will not be registered.

Participants in the event will be sent detailed information on the Finisher registration procedure in Nordkapp.

Participants in the event will be sent detailed information on the NordKapp Classic Raid Staff present at the Nordkapp visitor center.

We know that in Nordkapp it will be particularly difficult for you to leave with your Vespa, especially once it has opened wide the doors of glory and taken you up there to the top of the world. However, not everyone has the time and resources to return home from the Nordkapp on a Vespa once the event is over.

For this reason, to help those who want to participate but have little time, or don’t feel like undertaking the return journey on their own, we have organized a service, accessory to the event, for transporting the return vehicles.

You therefore get the possibility, if you wish, to deliver your vehicle to Nordkapp (Honningsvag or Alta) and pick it up after 5 days or less at the starting point in Florence or at intermediate stops along the way, for example (Germany / Austria / Trento / Bologna / Rome).

Intermediate stops will be scheduled only after registration.

While you, once the vehicle has been delivered to Nordkapp and with the typical and well-deserved drink in hand of the winners, you can return comfortably by plane, and in just a few hours, from the Alta international airport (about 210 km from Nordkapp / information on available transport and connections will be sent to all participants) or from Honningsvag airport (about 25 km from Nordkapp / information on available transport and connections will be sent to all participants).

Your Vespa will be loaded onto a special vehicle and brought back to Germany, Austria and Italy (starting point and intermediate stops) with all the care and attention. The transport will be carried out complete with insurance means and a loading and stowage system that will guarantee the safe transport of your beloved vehicle without surprises, under the complete care of the forwarder appointed by us.

Keep in mind that we are talking about the Nordkapp and the Arctic Circle and obviously we will not be able to organize last minute or “on call” transports, which is why, due to the difficulties associated with an operation of this type in such an extreme territory, there will be only one fixed date in which you will have the opportunity to deliver your vehicle, 17 June 2023, the day following the expiry of the time limit to receive the qualification of Finisher of the Nordkapp Classic Raid.

After the closure of registrations, by January 2023, we will send all participants a Google form to fill in to inform us whether or not they have joined the vehicle transport service.

Completing this form, which must be completed strictly by 15 February, is MANDATORY for all crews, both for those who decide to book the transport service and for those who decide to organize themselves independently.

Those who decide to join the service, in addition to completing the form, will also have to make, at the same time, the payment of a deposit of 500 euros by 15 February 2023, directly into the current account of the Vespa Club Firenze or of the appointed Partner, according to the methods which will be indicated by the organization.

The deposit will guarantee the booking of transport for your vehicle.

Without payment of the deposit we will not accept reservations.

On 28 February 2023, as a last step, we will finally know, with certainty, the number of crews who have joined the transport and paid the deposit, and based on their actual number we will then calculate, together with the appointed Partner, the exact cost for any means transported. Therefore, depending on the exact amount, we will then ask you for an integration if the cost of the actual service is greater than the deposit paid or, if less, to return a part to you.

The refund or any integration must be made strictly by 10 March 2023.

ATTENTION:  Following unpleasant behaviors that occurred in the booking of the service in the 2023 edition, we would like to underline that the transport service of the vehicles it is accessory to the event, requires a high commitment in terms of management and time and that RaidTribe therefore has no interest or convenience for you to use the event service rather than the one you can find independently. If individually you think you will get better conditions than those obtained from a group transport, remember that you are always free to organize yourself in complete autonomy, in fact we remind you that the event ends in Nordkapp.

So think carefully about whether to request the booking of the service attached to the event because if you decide to book and entrust us with the return of your vehicle, you must be aware of making a binding commitment that we expect you to keep out of respect for all the other crews, from the moment that any non-payment would inevitably be borne by the other participants.

As an organization that has been organizing and managing Adventure events around the world for over 20 years with care, scruple and the utmost attention, we expect to find the same values in our participants. Reason why, in the event that a participant fails to complete the booking with the required payments, the deposit already paid will not be recoverable and the participant will no longer be able to participate in any of our events in the future.


Once the phase of collecting subscriptions and funds necessary for the provision of the service has been concluded, based on the origin of the participating Riders, we will take steps to create as many intermediate stops as possible (in the presence of at least 4-5 Riders), so as to return your Vespa in the useful point closest to your home.

For the 2024 edition we will work with the aim of guaranteeing at least 2 stops in Germany, 2 in Austria and as far as Italy is concerned, at least 3, presumably Trento and Bologna, in addition to the arrival point in Florence.


The exact cost of transport will be defined precisely only close to the event based on the number of vehicles to be transported, the number and type of vehicles that will carry out the loading and the market conditions of international logistics, with a price range that we estimate it could range from 600 euros to 900 euros per vehicle, keep in mind that:

– the transport service is a dedicated service and not shared with other shipments, and furthermore, even if you are only interested in the return of the vehicles from the North Cape, this service requires the carrier to cover a round trip from Italy to North Cape (8000km).

It is a custom service with intermediate stops, loading and storage by the staff and includes full risk insurance on each transported vehicle.

Includes the management of customs paperwork required by the Norwegian border

The transport service of the vehicles, from the Nordkapp to Italy (and intermediate stops), is an accessory service to the registration for the event and is provided by a specialized external partner who collaborates with the organization.

RaidTribe is not responsible for the service or for any damage deriving from it, limiting itself to providing the participating crews with a preferential agreed price and all the necessary planning, including the management of reservations for the departing crews and the necessary paperwork for transport.

The validity of the registration is not linked to the provision or otherwise of the transport by road by our Partner.

The world of Adventure Raids, regardless of the means by which they are intended to complete, always includes a highly subjective approach, in terms of comfort that cannot be done without, which can lead to significantly different costs.

Here is some reliable data to get an idea of the total cost of the Raid, all included, in the case of a single crew participant or a couple.

Die Hard profile – Single Crew

You are tough and for you the Adventure is only the one at Bear Grylls. You and your Vespa eat the road without batting an eye. Your favorite restaurants are gas stations and supermarkets, while your hotels are spartan but charming Scandinavian wooden cabins or, even better, a few nights in a tent on the spectacular arctic tundra.

If you recognize yourself in this profile, having paid the costs of registering for the event (567 euros), the return transport of the Vespa (600 euros) and the plane ticket (180 euros), in total approximately 1350 euros, all you have left is add three basic cost items

– Fuel + ferries (Fuel : 4000 km = about 200 euros + Ferries 150 euros)

– Meals (36 meals = 3 per day x 12 days time limit = 320 euros)

– Overnight stays (6 days in a tent for Free + 6 nights in a single cabin = 240 euros)

Total with return transport of the vehicle = 2260 euros

Total without return of the vehicle = 1660 euros


Die Hard profile – Couple crew

You are always unquestionably tough but you have chosen to conquer the Nordkapp as a team, with a travel companion. Same thing, your favorite restaurants are gas stations and supermarkets, while your hotels are the spartan but charming wooden cabins of Scandinavia or, even better, a few nights in a tent in the spectacular arctic tundra.

If you both recognize yourself in this profile, once you have paid the costs of registering for the event as a couple (697 euros), the return transport of the Vespa (600 euros) and the air ticket for two people (360 euros), in total approximately 1650 euros totals for both, there is nothing left but to add three fundamental cost items

– Fuel + ferries (Fuel : 4000 km = around 250 euros + ferry/s : 150 euros)

– Meals (36 meals / 3 per day x 12 day time limit x 2 Riders =

500 Euros)

– Overnight stays (6 days in a tent Free + 6 nights in a double cabin = 360 euros)

Total with return transport of the vehicle = 2910 euros = 1455 euros per participant
Total without return of the vehicle = 2310 = 1155 euros per participant


Profile “Adventure yes, but with style!” – Single crew

In your mind you would like to be Bear Grylls but you can’t give up a certain amount of comfort, even in the Raid of Raid! You and your Vespa are an example of balance and for you a Raid does mean a long way, but also a good meal and a nice bed to recharge your batteries, and your lower back.

– Meals (36 meals = 3 per day x 12 days time limit) = 540 euros

– Overnight stays (12 nights in single cabin / single room = 600 euros)

Total with return transport of the vehicle = 2840 euros
Total without return of the vehicle = 2240 euros


Profile “Adventure yes, but with style!” – Couple crew

There’s little you can do, your team sleeps with a photo of Bear Grylls under the pillow but you can’t give up a certain amount of comfort, you’re the sophisticated version of modern adventurers, even in the Raid of Raid! You and your Vespa are an example of balance and for you a Raid does mean a long way, but also a good meal and a nice bed to recharge your batteries, and your lower back.

– Meals (36 meals = 3 per day x 12 days time limit) x 2 Riders = 850 euro)

– Overnight stays (12 nights in double cabin / double room = 840 euros)

Total with return transport of the vehicle = 3740 euros = 1870 euros per participant
Total without return of the vehicle = 3140 = 1570 euros per participant

These are estimates. If instead of 12 or 13 days you take only 10 days to reach Nordkapp, you will obviously spend less. The profile you choose to adopt during the Raid will give you the final result and obviously you will be able to spend more or less, also in consideration of the number of possible unexpected events and things that will go smoothly along the way, but the cost items are based on years of experience in the territories crossed for which you can refer to this track to consider the actual economic aspect of the shipment.

Participants in the event will be sent detailed information on the airports available to return by plane to Italy or Europe, including connections to reach the airports, available airlines and average ticket costs.

Adventure will save the world!

The NordKapp Classic Raid was born with a specific purpose: to make people’s lives better and happier by allowing them, through the most coveted and dreamed of Vespa Raid ever, to share a magnificent experience with hundreds of other dreamers riding a Vespa, all united in search of strong emotions and against the torpor that now accompanies the modern world and unfortunately many of our lives.

It is time to turn around and take back control, as wrote the author of the book “Titanic. A different ending “.

Making it better means enjoying and capitalizing on an experience that for most people only happens once in a lifetime. For this reason, everything related to the event should be experienced and interpreted by those who intend to take part, with positive emotion, enthusiasm, courtesy towards others and towards the Staff, as well as awareness of being able to experience something Extraordinary in able to shake one’s life in an incredibly powerful and positive way.

So please, always remember that the purpose of participating in this event is to do an extraordinary thing that will make you happy and that you can tell with contagious enthusiasm to your lineage, so even if we understand that preparation can bring with it a certain amount of apprehension, approach the event in all its aspects with happiness and joy of being there, after all .. you are here for this.

Participating in the NordKapp Classic Raid means giving yourself and your life a gift of unique value, as long as you are conscious and aware that you are taking part in an UltraDistance Vespa Raid in complete autonomy.

The Adventure, by its very nature and definition, requires flexibility, a spirit of adaptation and the ability to read the conditions in the field. Despite the maniacal care and scruple that we place in preparing for this event, it is physically impossible to predict the real conditions you will find on the pitch from the moment of departure. For this reason, you are responsible for viewing the route sent with the utmost care, providing support and supply points, night points, etc.

We choose the best roads in Europe but it is easy to understand, given the length of the event, that the conditions on the field could be different or change suddenly for a thousand reasons and at any time: detours, road works, closures of other communication routes and diverted traffic flows.

For this reason, in the presence of unforeseen and extraordinary circumstances that you may find in the field, at the NordKapp Classic Raid you are free to exit the track, at your complete discretion, and to resume it as soon as the safety conditions are restored.

Tackle this Adventure responsibly, with awareness and preparation, and you will treasure one of the Greatest Experiences of Your Life.

Preparing an Adventure independently, from A to Z, requires months of time and careful filtering of the sources from which the information is taken. From navigation to technical aspects, from equipment to logistics, there are many things to plan.

Aware, however, that not everyone has the time and skills necessary to plan adventures of this type and wanting to bring as many people as possible to the world of Vespa and moped raids, we have studied a series of adventures with a fixed and carefully planned route, accompanied by fundamental information that is the result of our twenty years of experience in over 100 countries around the world. Indeed, having a path to follow relieves you of months of study and planning, although it is your responsibility to check it carefully. But in addition to the path and perhaps even more fundamental, the participants will be provided with practical information of all kinds that otherwise, in the case of adventures done independently, you would have had to find and filter from hundreds of sources, mostly untestable.

Logistical information, on the recommended equipment to face the challenge, on how to follow the track with the GPS or smartphone. As well as the services available along the track, the roadmap, the workshops, the repair centers, the Vespa Clubs. To get to the return transport service and the connections to return home by plane. With over 20 years of experience in the world of adventure, our events allow everyone to experience extraordinary Adventures that really change people’s lives.

The RaidTribe Adventures take place on the most served and safest continent in the world, Europe. For this reason, you will presumably always be able to receive help within a few kilometers, to resolve any unforeseen events and program changes that may arise along the way, elements that have always been at the basis of the very concept of Adventure.
