About Terra Incognita 2007
Terra Incognita is an Expedition Adventure Race that covers over 400 km through Croatia - one of the most beautiful and diverse landscapes on the European Continent. Two person teams race non-stop for 24 hours a day during five days and five nights. They must make it from the start to the finish by themselves with no outside help. Navigating over the entire course the teams must overcome demanding challenges of mountain biking, sea and river kayaking, hiking, canyoneering and fixed ropes descending. In order to succeed competitors need to rely on their team-mate, their survival skills and their mental and physical preparedness.
Strategy of movement, resting, sleeping and planning of food supplies and proper equipment is crucial. If one member drops out - the team is disqualified. Terra Incognita is designed to push the boundaries of human endurance. It takes a lot of courage to start the race and only the most relentless can finish. Finishing this race is an extraordinary achievement. Winning Terra Incognita is beyond description. In 2007 the 8th edition of Terra Incognita takes place in the South Adriatic region and will include very different landscapes: the South Adriatic Sea with its islands as the backdrop, Dalmatian mountains that rise from the sea and reach 1800 m of altitude, diverse lakes, rivers and the only remaining swamp on the Mediterranean!
Very affordable and easily accessible from anywhere in Europe. Now you can reach Croatian coast in just a few hours of driving from Vienna, Budapest or Venice, over recently completed and one of the Europe's best highways.
For flying in, several international airports are placed across the country, shortening the traveling time significantly. A pleasant Mediterranean climate prevails along the Adriatic coast, with an overwhelming number of sunny days, dry and hot summers, mild and humid winters.
