Explore the land of the Inca's!

Take an adventure ride through some of South America’s most spectacular scenery, explore the City of Magic, and experience the Sacred Valley of the Incas. You will ride in Northern Chile and Southern Peru between the Pacific coast and the Amazon jungle across the Andean Mountains in elevations of up to 16400ft.

Motorcycle tour across the Andeans!

This tour starts in Antofagasta, Chile (about 700 miles north of Santiago) and ends in Arica, Chile. It takes you through the Atacama Desert, to the beaches of the Pacific and on curvy mountain roads across the Andeans. You will cross the border to Peru and ride along the legendary Pan-American Hwy to the Valley of Colca where the landscape is formed for farming in Inca tradition with series of steps and terraces on the hills. There is also a high possibility of watching the Andean condor. The main highlight of this tour, of course, is a trip to Machu Picchu. Also other highlights, including a boat trip to the floating islands of Uros, are waiting for you. You will ride the fantastic Moon Valley of San Pedro, see some spectacular geysers and visit several traditional towns built through the epoch of the Spaniards. Imagine yourself adventuring between snow covered volcanic peaks of the majestic Andeans, surrounded by Alpacas roaming the sparse vegetation.

A real adventure tour!

Although you will stay in comfortable accommodations, often succeeding 3 star qualities, this is a real adventure tour. At the beginning of the tour you will receive a waterproof 60 liter bag to pack your luggage in so it can be safely transported by our support vehicle between accommodations. Your suitcases with the rest of your stuff will be sent to the final hotel in Arica, Chile to make sure that they will not be damaged.

This tour is suitable for two-up riding, so bring your partner or teenage child. Due to limited availability of quality accommodations, there will be a couple of long riding days within this well-rounded itinerary. Roads in general are paved; some dirt roads or bad pavement might be encountered.
