Mountain passes, open highways and lush, rolling landscapes with quality hotels to relax in at night.
A European Car Rally with everything a Petrolhead could want!
This 6 day European Car Rally takes on some of the best driving roads in Europe including Route Napoleon, Maloja Pass, Fluela Pass, Col de Vence, Julier Pass, Albula Pass, Col de Turini & The Black Forest in Germany.
We operate a round-trip, starting and finishing in the UK.
On Rico Rally you will stay at great overnight locations with a welcome meal on the 1st night and final night get together before returning home. Below is a taster of what’s to come!
Col de Turini
Famous for its World Rally heritage, the Col de Turini is a truly great road with twists, turns, short straight blasts and stunning views – watch the video
What do we need to say about Monaco? Glamour, glitz, awesome cars, Casino Square and all that F1 heritage.
Route Napoléon is a 200 mile section of the Route Nationale 85, taken by Napoléon on his return from Elba in 1815. Definitely one of the best driving roads out there, and we throw a little twist in at the end as you drop into the French Riviera.
One of the most beautiful passes we’ll drive on this trip, in fact on all of our trips. With it’s flowing curves and slight undulations the Fluela Pass really is a superb road to drive.
The deep valleys & high peaks make for very dramatic scenery. The first set of curves are nice and open and then right before you reach the summit, the curves tighten up into hairpins. A drive along Maloja mountain pass in Switzerland is a rewarding experience.
Black Forest, Germany
A road that combines glass smooth sweeping sections elevated above the forest with a dramatic switchback run continuing on our adventure.
One of the best roads we drive on any Rico Rally, just stunning as you climb and weave along the pass. Cross the summit and then descend down towards St Moritz.
We choose our hotels carefully and this is one of the hotels we’ll be using on this trip – make sure you pack your swimwear.
The Albula pass starts in Davos and has an almost constant set of corners until the gorge just before Bergün. After that the road climbs through the trees, with exciting hairpins and sweepers.

RICO RALLY IS NOT A RACE, TIME TRIAL OR GUIDED TOUR – IT IS A NAVIGATIONAL ROAD TRIP WHERE YOU WILL BE GIVEN A FINISH POINT FOR EACH DAY, ALONG WITH A SUGGESTED ROUTE. YOU WILL BE EXPECTED TO FIND YOUR OWN WAY THERE WITH YOUR OWN SAT NAV, MAP OR A LITTLE HELP FROM ONE OF OUR FRIENDLY STAFF MEMBERS.
Our European Driving Adventure visits amazing destinations, such as the French Riviera, the Swiss Alps and the Black Forest, via some equally amazing roads and scenery… if you fancy seeing some great parts of Europe, visiting the very best locations and driving some of the world’s best roads, all in the company of like-minded petrolheads, then Rico Rally is a European road trip you can’t miss out on.
Our route avoids traffic and lorries (where possible), and follows empty roads leading you over mountain passes with breathtaking scenery, through empty rural villages and across some truly beautiful open countryside.
Daily mileages vary. Some will be challenging but you should still arrive at your hotel with time to socialise. There should be no night driving (unless you get totally lost). There are no time constraints or destination arrival deadlines. Whether you’re a group of mates or a couple, everyone is welcome.
