The Trans Amazonian Challenge is a 52 day long adventure motorcycle expedition traversing the great Amazonian basin and visiting 8 countries (Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Brazil, French Guiana, Suriname, Guyana and Venezuela) in the northern part of South America.
SITES OF INTEREST:
Everything from dirt, mud, rain, forest tracks, mountain passes, boat crossings and beautiful paved roads will be mixed in with interesting historic and cultural destinations, wildlife, Unesco World Heritage sites, incredible scenery and awesome experiences with both locals, team and crew members. There will be plenty to write home about. This is a demanding journey and riders need to be prepared for anything.
This challenge is only suitable for riders with advanced riding skills and experience, including riding long days and days of challenging unpaved roads. We will be going up to high altitudes around 5,000 meters where it can become quite cold, while most of the expedition will be in humid and warm tropical conditions. Expect to encounter plenty of mud, sand, gravel and dirt mixed with beautifully paved roads.
The expedition will be fully supported with a 4×4 support truck, on-bike guides and a very experienced crew from Motolombia and MotoDiscovery. You can chose to ride either your own bike or rent a fully equipped dual sport bike from Motolombia in Colombia.
75% mid- and high-range hotels, 25% home-stays, B&B or best option available.
