Be a part of history as we experience the most reliable and capable off-road vehicles ever made. Land Rover's reputation was solidified by its involvement in the Camel Trophy, an annual off-road race sponsored by Camel cigarettes from 1980 to 2000. Starting in 1980, teams from around the world competed in grueling off-road stages on three continents. The Camel trophy made four stops in Indonesia. Our trip has been designed to both honor the prestige and history of the Camel Trophy, and to celebrate the beauty of Indonesia. Join us as we recreate history in Indonesia.
