What does your imagination conjure up when you think of motorcycle tours in South America? If it’s freedom, unlimited riding and faraway lands, you’re right on the money.
The riding, the ever-changing scenery, the traces of ancient civilisations and the colourful mix of cultures from the Caribbean all the way to Tierra del Fuego are all part of the package when you go on a motorcycle tour in South America. If it’s the adventure you’re looking for, you’ll get more than your fill. While most motorcycle tours in South America focus on a few key highlights such as tucking Machu Picchu off your bucket list, here at Ride Expeditions we know motorcycle adventures are much more than famous locations and high mileage.
Riding with us in Colombia, you’ll explore dirt trails and places way off the beaten path showcasing the hidden gems of the Caribbean and the Andes Mountains, all while hanging out with the locals and sampling delicious Colombian cuisine (and coffee – did we mention Colombian coffee?). In Ecuador, you’ll discover the Pacific Coast Routes, active volcanoes, the jungles of the Amazon basin, and so many mountain twisties you’ll become a master of hairpins – we tried to find a straight road in Ecuador and, honestly, we failed, as this country is all about the winding backroads and mountain trails with countless switchbacks and turns. Riding Peru, you’ll explore the rugged, remote regions of the mighty Andes – some say they’re at their most glorious in Peru - see the majestic Cuzco and Machu Picchu, explore the mysterious Nazca Lines, ride the Atacama Desert and immerse yourself in the indigenous Peruvian culture. Bolivia will offer Moon-like landscapes, the dark blue waters of Lake Titicaca and the world’s largest salt flats in Uyuni you can ride across. And finally, Patagonia (the crown jewel of all South America motorcycle tours) will take your breath away with its vast open horizons, dizzying Andean passes, otherworldly glaciers, and the unspoiled wilderness of Southern Chile and Argentina traversing Ruta 40 and Carreterra Austral, two of most scenic roads on the entire continent.
There is so much to see, ride and experience in South America that it can be tough to choose your destination.
Whether you prefer riding big adventure bikes such as the BMW R1250 GS, performance enduro machines like the KTM 450 EXC or the smaller adventure bikes like the Royal Enfield Himalayan… if you’re looking for an incredible ‘off-the-beaten-track’ motorcycle holiday in some of the most stunning & interesting countries on the planet, you’re in the right place.
