RMT Caucasus Rally 2022

A five-day trip over the Caucasus Mountains from Rusmototravel. 50-70 participants, not a guided tour, but more like a trophy/rally

When we were just starting RMT in 2015, we came across a video with BMW Safari Australia. Here is the movie about it - 2014 BMW GS Safari-Enduro Australia - YouTube

For many years we dreamed of holding such an event in Russia, looking for right place, time, team. Time has come and we are happy to invite you to take part in the first RMT Caucasus Rally 2022.


  • 21-27 August 2022
  • Route - Vladikavkaz-Ossetia-Chechnya-Dagestan
  • 50-70 participants, all with their owb motorcycles 
  • 60-70% off-road, the roads are not difficult, but good riding skills are required
  • Price 1000 Euros

How will that work?

  • Each participant will have a Road Book and a GPS track, with marked points that are desirable to visit
  • All participants ride on their own. You can ride solo, find few buddies and ride together, if you participate with friends, you can ride with your company
