I know this summer has only just gone, but there is no harm in forward planning!
These might be of interest....
Its basically a pay and play that travels across Sweden, with different stages each day. You just join or leave wherever you want to.Rumours are that the 20th edition will finish on the Arctic Cirle or North Cape
The biggest 4x4 show in France - a bit like Billing in the Alps - the town centre is shut off for four days and turned into a 4x4 fair. Trucks, quads, cars, camping etc With daily routes out over the ski slopes with overnight camping and then sunrise depart in the morning with a return to town for breakfast

Road trip? Convoy? Any thoughts?

The Sweden tour looks brilliant and sounds like it would suit nearly any standard vehicle with stuff for those who are partial to a bit of modification . My wife and I plan to visit Sweden so I shall keep a watch on how it develops and the logistics of getting there in my lovely truck..
Not all those who wander are lost....
