TOUR DETAILS

60% paved roads 40% gravel and dirt, varying from very good highways to small sealed back roads with potholes. Many curves, Andean Mountain passes and extreme scenic routes. For riders with off-road and touring experience, good curving skills, ability to stay calm in hectic traffic and the ability to ride longer sections of gravel and dirt roads, even parts on muddy tracks. We stay in mid- & high-range hotels. We always opt for the best option available – clean, safe and practical location. Temperatures can vary between 12 to 40°C (53.6 F to 104°F). Temperatures can drop for a short period going over the mountains passes. It is recommended to ride with ventilated riding gear. A pull over rain suite is a good idea to carry against mountain temperatures and possible short rain showers that can occur year round.

Day 1: Fly-in to Cali. Motolombia staff will pick you up in airport and bring you to the hotel. Depending on what time in the day you arrive, we will meet to sort out paperwork and prep the bikes. A tour briefing will be arranged once the last rider has arrived.

Day 2: Cali to Salento – We ride north out of the Cauca Valley and into the foothills of the middle Andean Mountain range. We visit a working coffee plantation to see how the best coffee in the world is produced.

Day 3: Salento to Honda – We start the morning by riding into the Cocora Valley where the worlds tallest palm trees grow. The wax palm are Colombia’s national tree and the area where it grows is otherworldly and stunning. We then head further north in the coffee region and pass by Manizales before climbing up over 4000 meters altitude in the shadow of the active volcano Los Nevados del Ruiz. We enter the national park riding in stunning scenery that include crossing old dried out lava rivers. We arrive in Honda late afternoon in time to enjoy the hotel pool.

Day 4: Honda to Tatacoa – Once we wake in Honda – per average the warmest place in Colombia and once an important colonial river port town – we do a little walk-about to see the sites before we saddle up. We will spend all day riding along side and zig-zagging across the mighty Magdalena river. We even cross the river on a canoe before riding through the Tatacoa desert, an ecological phenomena in the middle of the lush green country.

Day 5: Tatacoa to San Agustin – Before the sun burn through to hard, we ride into the desert to get a feel of this magical place. Its considered a desert because of the amount of rain (or lack off) it gets per year, but there is quite green with big cactus plant and strange rock and mud formations covered in dry grass. After our desert loop we make our way back into the high mountains near San Agustin

Day 6: Rest-day San Agustin – The options are many in this incredible area. We can set up a fun rafting tour down the Magdalena river, visit the national archeological park with its Easter Island like sculptures. Walk around the old traditional village or join a fantastic horse-back ride into the remote mountains to see hidden grave sites and more ancient sculptures.

Day 7: San Agustin to Popayan – Get ready for a long dirt and gravel ride. We are going up over the central Andean Mountain range again, this time on the more southern unpaved route to Popayan. It’s another scenic ride through the remote mountains and the descend circling the Puracè volcano and dropping into to the old colonial town known as the white city is spectacular. Popayan is really a special place and one of the nicest kept colonial towns.

Day 8: Popayan to Cali – The ride back to Cali takes us on a multi cultural ride past first an indian village called Silvia, where traditional indian costumes including soft bowler hat and colorful ponchos are seen everywhere. Then we get further into the Cauca Valley that is covered with sugar plantations and has been like this since the Spanish ruled. Many Afro/Colombo descendants of slaves from Africa live in these more humid areas around the Cauca River. And finally we make our way through the hectic big city of Santiago de Cali and arrive at the Motolombia HQ in the afternoon. Here we sort out bike return and paperwork before checking into the hotel.

Day 9: Departure from Cali – Motolombia staff will take you to the airport in time for your flight. If you wish to stay longer we are happy to help you make arrangements. We strongly suggest visiting Cartagena for a day or two before or after the Motorcycle trip.

Itinerary may change without further notice due to weather, road- or any other condition that Motolombia or its guides feel will jeopardize the safety of the group or material.
