26th SWEDEN OFFROAD TOUR 3-18.7 2021. Win 4 Cooper offroad tires worth 1500 EURO. Free camping on offroad sites.

 
26th annual Sweden Offroad Tour goes 3-18.7 2021. Please inform your offroad friends about SOT 2021 map and info on www.swedenoffroad.com and www.facebook.com/swedenoffroad and instagram.com/swedenoffroadtour . 
 
Sweden Offroad Tour is Sweden's greatest 4x4 adventure covering 16 days on 16 different offroad areas in the Southern half of the country. Go on and off and on the tour whenever you want. No pre-registration! Payment on site.
 
Since the start in 1995 8400 vehicles from 20 countries have participated. Thanks to social media SOT 2020 had almost 45 percent more vehicles than the previous year!
 
Sweden Offroad Tour is mainly for standard 4x4 cars, ATV and UTV. But modified vehicles are of course also welcome. At least half of each offroad area is driveable with original cars with original tires.
 
SOT is for everyone: from the new beginner i an original 4x4 who takes part in one SOT day nearby - to the hard core offroader in a modifed and equipped vehicle who drives many SOT days. Bring your friends, partner, children, don't forget the dog!
 
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 10 AM - 4 PM. Half price for children with small machines: 150 SEK / 15 EURO. 
 
Due to the weak Swedish krona (SEK) we have lowered the fee from 35 to 30 EURO per vehicle and offroad day, for those who want to pay in EURO. If you pay in SEK it is still 300 SEK - after 26 years! We accept any currency but only cash money.
 
Our main sponsor Cooper is once again sponsoring SOT with 4 Cooper STT Discoverer offroad tires for our lottery, worth up to 1500 EURO / 15000 SEK, depending on size the winner wants. All drivers on SOT are automatically part of the lottery. The winner will be drawn after SOT finishes 18.7.
 
Many participants have requested the possibility to camp on the offroad area the night before the offroad driving. We now allow free camping on almost all SOT areas! Observe there is normally no elecricity or water service. There are no SOT signs until 8.30 AM on the offroad day, trust the GPS coordinates. We also write out the local commercial camping for those who want full service or cabins.
 
We of course sell our popular blue/yellow SOT-T-shirts, now in unique yearly edition with the tour program on the back! Just 100 SEK / 10 EURO (lowered from 15 EURO!), sponsored by Warn/Rindab and Cooper/ProImp.
 
We try hard to raise the quality of Sweden Offroad Tour to attract more participants. Therefore we try to have toilet, food service and marked trail/area for original cars/new beginners on every SOT area. 
 
Observe that some SOT areas do not allow ATV. But UTV are always welcome as they count as cars (steering wheel, side by side seats). Same requirements for cars go for UTV. 
 
Sweden Offroad Tour is now active on social media. Please check us out on facebook.com/swedenoffroad , instagram.com/swedenoffroadtour , #swedenoffroadtour , #sot2021 .
 
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, etcetera. On some 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. 
 
800 pictures from SOT 2019 are published on Photos.
 
Sweden Offroad Tour's policy is:  maximum fun and freedom - minimum costs and bureaucray!
 
 
16 offroad days - go on and off the tour whenever you want - no pre-registration
