A European Tour, an African Adventure

A Testament to the `Grand Tour of Europe`

Imagine This

... Rolling into Casablanca, the sun setting on a mystical and magnificent African horizon, feeling both exhilarated and ecstatic after completing the challenge. You sit still, the warm African breeze filling the car. You are part of the chosen G3K 100. Closing your eyes, you lay your head against the rest, letting your mind drift, smiling and quietly muttering...


“ ...here’s Looking at you Kid”


La Col De Bonnet
Col de la Bonette (el. 2,715 metres (8,907 ft)) is a high mountain pass in the French Alps, near the border with Italy. The road over the col is the seventh highest paved road in the Alps.


The Concept

Setting out from Kinsale, Ireland in the early hours of the 23rd April 2016, pondering the challenge and experience the next eight days will bring, the chosen 100 will make their way en-route to Casablanca, Morocco, North Africa. The `100` will tour through Ireland, Wales, England, France, Italy, Spain and Morocco, taking in sea crossings, beautiful mountain passes, a Mediterranean cruise, world class hotels, indulge in the atmosphere of The Cannes Film Festival, cross the Straits of Gibraltar while taking in the exceptional views of the North African Coast and Atlas Mountains. We will experience the wonderful mysteries and exotics of the North African Jewel, Morocco. All this will culminate in the most unforgettable finale party at the world famous “Rick's Café American” in Casablanca.


Antibes, The French Riviera
Antibes lies on the Mediterranean in the Côte d'Azur, located between Cannes and Nice. The town of Juan-les-Pins is within the commune of Antibes. Jazz à Juan remains one of the top jazz festivals in the world. Since its inception in 1960, it has attracted many famous Jazz artists each year to play outdoors.

The Background

In the day of true aristocracy, young men, of high social standing, had to embark on a personal journey, in order to develop themselves sufficiently to take over their family estate, wealth and fortune. This journey encouraged the young men to travel the length and breath of Europe, experiencing all that foreign lands had to offer. They immersed themselves in language, music, art, culture, customs, sometimes battle, but always adventure. This was seen to develop the character of the young men sufficiently to empower them to return to their home land and to lead their people.


This journey was known as the `The Grand Tour of Europe`. The Grand 3000, or G3K, is a modern testament to that tradition, and will provide equal opportunity for `The G3K 100` to experience culture, adventure and excitement, touring from Northern Europe to the magnificent Moroccan coastline.
