25th anniversary SWEDEN OFFROAD TOUR 4-19.7 2020. Fee lowered from 35 to 30 EURO! 

 
25th anniversary Sweden Offroad Tour goes 4-19.7 2020. Please inform your offroad friends about SOT 2020 map and info on www.swedenoffroad.com .
 
Due to the weak Swedish krona (SEK) we have lowered the fee from 35 to 30 EURO per offroad day, for those who want to pay in EURO. If you pay in SEK it is still 300 SEK per offroad day - after 25 years! We accept any currency but only cash money.
 
When we had our 20 year anniversary in 2015 we set a new record with 500 4x4 cars and ATV/UTV, with an average of 50 vehicles per day. We hope that our quarter century jubilee will beat that!
 
Sweden Offroad Tour is now more active on facebook. Please like us on facebook.com/swedenoffroad 
 
SOT has a pay and play format. Pay 300 SEK / 30 EURO per vehicle and SOT day and drive offroad as you wish for 6 hours. 
 
We of course sell our popular yellow/blue SOT-T-shirts in a special 25th anniversary edition for just 100 SEK / 10 EURO (lowered from 15 EURO!), sponsored by Warn/Rindab and Cooper/ProImp.
 
Sweden Offroad Tour is Sweden's greatest 4x4 event. Since the start in 1995 totally 7500 4x4 vehicles from 20 countries have participated.
 
800 pictures from SOT 2019 are published on Photos.

SOT 2020 offers totally 16 offroad days and areas on the tour. You can go on and of (and on again) the tour whenever you want. No pre-registration, pay on offroad site, come as you are.
 
SOT is mainly for standard 4x4 vehicles with low gear. You can manage at least 50 percent of the offroad areas with a stock 4x4, even with non-aggressive tires. But there are always more difficult areas and modified 4x4s are of course welcome. 
 
SOT is Sweden’s and one of the world’s greatest 4x4 adventures with totally about 500 cars and ATVs from a dozen countries, with an average of 50 vehicles per offroad day. Since the start in 1995 almost 7500 4x4 vehicles from 20 countries have participated.
 
Because SOT is on 16 different locations you can expect all kinds of terrain; endless forest trails, mud holes, beds of stones, slickrock, sand, grass, water, motocross tracks, ski slopes, etcetera. On most of the offroad areas you must stay on the trails, but they also offer free driving areas. There are small Sweden Offroad Tour-signs from the main roads to the offroad areas.
