What is Vert l’horizon?

Vert l’horizon (“Towards a green horizon” in English) is a biking journey around the world in order to discoverer our sustainable future in the domain of environment and energy.

We are two friends, passionate about adventure and challenges. This journey is not only realised to feed our thirst for new discoveries, but also to learn about local specific features of renewable energy projects / environmental sustainability, as well as to transmit our knowledge. We will visit many projects, reserves, regions, … related to energy and environment. We want to learn from all of them and get a global image of sustainability. Of course we intend to be the witnesses, encourage and promote these projects.
We have prepared a video explaining our project:

We have also prepared a press file in order to summarize the main features of our project. It is available in English pdf-icon, and in Frenchpdf-icon.

The adventure starts on the 25th of September, in Bali.

Where are we going?

You can see on the map: we are starting in Indonesia, and we will cross 26 countries in 3 continents: Asia, America, and Africa. On each continent, we will climb a symbolic summit: Rinjani in Asia, Aconcagua in America and Kilimanjaro in Africa. The route has been planned in detail taking into account more than 800 points of interest. You can see it in our Map page.
