Let the adventure begin!

The Trans Amazonian highway BR230 is almost 5000 km coast to coast of incredible varied terrain over the Andes, though the Amazon.


POI: Kaieteur Falls

The world's largest single drop waterfall by the volume of water flowing over it. Located in Guyana and accessible only by plane.


POI: Machu Picchu

This tour include a visit to one of the worlds absolute wonders - Machu Picchu. An incredible site that you must see at least once.



The expedition is only possible to complete a specific time a year due to massive rainfall in some of the areas throughout the rest of the year. 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. The trip is intended only for adventure touring enthusiasts who can demonstrate off road riding experience, the physical condition as well as social qualities conducive to teamwork and required flexibility for the success of the journey. 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. The expedition will be fully supported with a 4×4 support truck, on-bike guides and a very experienced crew from Motolombia. You can choose to ride either your own bike or rent a fully equipped dual sport bike from Motolombia in Colombia. We stay in mid- to top-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.
