Trying to overcome the four most extreme places in the world with a 4-wheel drive expedition vehicle, in an uninterrupted journey of 11 months through 22 countries and a total of 45.000 kilometers long. It took Andrea (30) and Mike Kammermann (32) from Switzerland 5 years to plan this challenging journey, which takes them to the four most extreme locations on the planet to have ever been reached in an expedition truck. It meant that their vehicle and equipment had to be extremely robust and durable to withstand these extreme condition. This is where Bliss Mobil stepped in, in helping them to create an expedition unit for their vehicle that could easily withstand these conditions.
We of Bliss Mobil are proud to have joined Andrea and Mike with our Expedition Unit on this 4-extremes journey and will keep you updated on their further adventures on our platforms. You can also read more about their journey on Roadstars.
The 4-xtremes journey explained
The 45.000 kilometers and eleven months’ journey started in Zurich where Swiss husband-and-wife duo Andrea and Mike Kammermann drove off in their all-wheel-drive Axor Mercedes with Bliss Mobil expedition unit. The four locations which gave their 4-xtremes project its name are the hottest, the highest, the coldest and the lowest places in the world reachable by a vehicle. These locations are:
The hottest location: The Dasht-e Lut desert in Iran, with temperatures that can easily reach up to 70 degrees Celsius.
The coldest location: Oymyakon in the far-east of Russia, with temperatures down to minus 70 degrees Celsius.
The highest location: Marsimik La in the far north-east of India with an altitude of around 5700 meters, making it the highest passable mountain road in the world.
The lowest location: The Dead Sea in Israel which is 400 meters below sea level
In April 2019, Andrea and Mike hope to be back home in Zurich.
Using publicity for charity
The Swiss Red Cross is the partner of the relief operation which Andrea and Mike wish to support with their journey.
