A feminine concept
For twenty years, Désertours guides teams of women in remote deserts of the world: 4x4, SSV, quads and motorcycles cross these infinite landscapes and reveal the competition spirit of different women who wish to live an intense experience through this rally-raid where sport and solidarity meet.
Launched in Morocco, through the Trophée Roses des Sables, this concept of orienteering race open to all the women, has turned a new page in 2014 thanks to the creation of the Trophée Roses des Andes.
A sport challenge accessible to all
With the help of a compass and a roadbook only, they progress every day following their own rhythm, as speed is not a criterion, and two instructions: to pass through the checkpoints and to respect the maximum covered kilometres limit. Following the pure tradition of the African rally-raids, these adventuresses follow part of the Dakar's itinerary, the mythical race that since 2009 takes place in the legendary South American territory, and there must be a reason for that...
This challenge is as demanding as thrilling, the Trophée Roses des Andes is accessible to the beginners who identify themselves in the values of courage and generosity. Often tested during our everyday life, these essential qualities reveal their intensity during this unforgettable adventure and are exalted when they serve a solidarity project, another essential part of the unique rally for women in Argentina.
Argentina... Heading to the 8th largest country in the world!
Perfect for an adventure, an ode to immensity and to the contrasted landscapes, Argentina is an ideal host for this new rally designed exclusively for women that is a sort of rite of passage. Each year, around one hundred women take part in this unique orienteering race in the Andes, the longest mountain chain of the world.
The simple evocation of the provinces - Salta, Jujuy, Catamarca - between Chile and Bolivia, allows you to imagine the sumptuous landscapes that you will discover along the Trophée Roses des Andes itinerary. The Argentinean desert offers different environments and the high summits of the Andes reveal their most beautiful details: rios, vertiginous valleys, canyons, dunes, volcanoes or salars. They are some of the natural wonders where the Roses take the risk to get lost before finding their way again, feeling a wild pleasure, in safe conditions.
