The route met the international standards of a complete circumnavigation: it started and ended in the same place and passed two antipodes - geographic points on exactly opposite sides of the globe.

Starting in Moscow, the expedition drove across Russia. The crews visited Cheboksary, Ufa, Kurgan, Omsk, Novosibirsk, Krasnoyarsk, Irkutsk and Ulan-Ude, and then, more than 6,000km later, turned towards Mongolia. After three weeks they reached the first antipode, the city of Enshi in China, where they planted a Land Rover flag.

The 11,000km Asia leg was completed in Laos, Thailand and finally Singapore, from where the crew flew to Australia. One week and 3,000km later, they headed for South America, where they reached the second antipode near the city of La Serena in Chile.

Week eight was spent in the U.S.A, driving from coast to coast through 11 states and nine cities, before crossing the Atlantic Ocean to Africa. They reached Europe through Morocco and Gibraltar for the final week. They returned to their starting point in Moscow on 15th August after 70,000km.

Sergey Dolya, leader of the expedition, said, "During the 70 days we tried delicious local cuisine from all over the planet, swam in two oceans, encountered elephants, monkeys and kangaroos, and met lots of Land Rover fans. Some of them gave us gifts and everyone took photos. All this was made possible by Land Rover, and each member of our team appreciates that extensive experience we've collected through this journey."
