The SAFE Raid 2015

April 22 to 30, 2015

The SAFE Raid is an exciting journey from Malaga to the UK, through Spain, Andorra, France and England in our fleet of 2CVs. With up to 16 on the road for each event they make a spectacular sight driving through the countryside.
Now in its second year, the SAFE Raid explores the lesser travelled roads, providing a unique view of these countries. We explore areas that are away from the usual tourist beat and in the evenings we stay in wonderful Paradors in Spain and four or five star hotels in France.
The route has been designed to give you time to enjoy the spectacular countryside, stop for lunch and taste the local cuisine and arrive in time to take advantage of the great hotel.
