The Expedition HERMES will go, by bike, to all the countries and territories of the world and respective capitals, totalizing 325 places.


For this, we divided our planet in 6 regions or stages to make it easy the accomplishment of this great mission.


Each stage will take between 1 and a half year to 2 years to be fulfilled. The intention is, after finishing each stage, to stop for some months to organize all the photographic and video material collected, give speeches, make documentaries, write books etc before the next region.


Below, you have the proposed route. Certainly, there will be changes in this itinerary along the expedition due to many reasons such as weather conditions, matters involving security in the countries etc, but always keeping the general guidelines to the expedition (more info here).


Date of the beginning of the Expedition (region/stage 1): 23rd Jun 2016 (arrival in Lisbon by aircraft from Fortaleza)

MAPS


OBS.: Google Maps does not allow certains sections, like the ones by boat, and neither does it allow to put the complete route in just one map, let alone have a continuous line between 2 cities even if there are roads that link those 2 (this happened in few sections like between North and South Korea). That's why there are many maps.
