Alpine Quest is an ultimate adventure racing experience with the best Australian teams travelling through the wilderness of unique alpine landscapes. It is the ultimate test for your body and your mind.

Alpine Quest requires concentration, physical effort and teamwork and challenges your mental toughness from the start to the finish. Major accomplishments can only start with the decision to try.

Two courses are on offer: an epic transalpine Expedition course, with a distance of approximately 200 kilometres and 48 hours cut off time or a 2-day stage Explore course, with a distance of approximately 150 kilometres and 48 hours cut off time (including overnight stop).

Each course is determined by control points and consists of packrafting (Expedition course only), kayaking, mountain biking, and trekking legs, with some additional challenges.

Teams of four will navigate their way between checkpoints over an unmarked wilderness course, using only a map and compass.

Not only is physical fitness required, but also proficiency in the disciplines which make up the event. You will ride multiple single tracks, with steep descents on the mountain bike, trek through rough off-road sections, and in the Expedition course, will paddle on moving water, with up to grade 2+ rapids.
