Explore Peru in 8 days!

Ride through South America’s fascinating scenery and explore the historical highlights of the ancient Inca culture. It is rich on significant historic sites, like the famous Machu Picchu. Peru has three different landscape zones: the coastal region, the Andeans mountain range and the tropical jungle. This tour offers a fantastic motorcycle experience.

The treasures of the Incas!

This round-trip tour starts in Arica, Northern Chile and will take you through wonderful landscape to the South of Peru. You will ride along the legendary Pan-American Hwy and through the very dry Atacama desert. Arequipa, the White City, is waiting for you. Through a remote area and on curvy mountain roads you will ride through the Andeans and will reach altitudes up to 15,420 ft. A sightseeing tour in Cuzco (famous for its cathedrals, churches and monasteries) is on the agenda as well as the visit of Sacsayhuamán fortress and the archeological sites of Qenko, Pukapukara, and Tambomachay. You will ride on curvy paved roads to the Sacred Valley and to the salt mines of Maras. You will take a train and bus to reach the legendary city of Machu Picchu. The route to Puno, which lays at Lake Titicaca, is all paved. A private boat will take you to the Uros Floating Islands. At the end of the tour, you will glide back to Arica, Chile through diversified scenery.
