Tours

2016 is now in the history books!  Our 'Andes & Amazon' tours this year were epic, and we have just added some great fotos and video!

 

What do we have new for this year?  Well it looks like the DAKAR is coming back to Peru!  Our 'FOLLOW THE DAKAR 2018' (Jan 2018) will be EPIC!

 

Changes?  Starting in 2016, we chose to do only TOURS BY REQUEST!  So gather up your group, tell us WHERE, WHEN, and HOW you want to do your tour, and WE WILL MAKE IT HAPPEN!

 

Below, you will find EXAMPLES of tours that we do.  MIX & MATCH what you'd like.  PERU is so full of varied geography and culture!

The Girls on Bikes  Learn-to-Ride Off-road - Peruvian Adventure is a 'girls only' 11 - day experience.  Your hosts will provide personalized off road motorcycle instruction in a group setting leading up to mountain village excursions in the Andes and finally a foray into the Amazon cloud forest to the breathtaking Velo de la Novia Waterfall!

 

We can work with ANY level of experience as long as you already ride on road!  We have small 250cc bikes for most and 600cc and 650cc bikes for those more adventursome!

 

Additional 4-day Cuzco & Machu Picchu expedition or 4-day social awareness project here in Hunauco are optional.

The "Andes & Amazon" 15-day tour takes you through the majestic Andes mountains for over 1,000 km!  Then you drop down into the mountain jungle of the Amazon via Satipo, the home of the Campa indians.  Following along jungle gorges full of orchids, waterfalls, and river crossings!  Don't miss it!

"Conquistadors" tour follows the route taken by the Spanish in 1533 as they vanquished the Incan Empire.  We will cross over high passes and down into the mountain jungles, through the "Canyon del Pato", the Incan capitol of Cajamarca, the Chachapoyan fotress of Kuelap and the Gocta Falls (3rd highest in the world!).

"The Wonders of Peru Tour" will be your choice  of a 10, 13, 14, 16 or 24 day tour including some or all of:

+ Ride the central and southern Andes & Amazon of Peru.

+ Passing thru Cuzco, the Incan capitol of Peru.  We will also visit the famed 'lost city of the Incas' Machu Picchu and ride the Sacred Valley of the Incas.

+ Chase the origins of the Mighty Amazon all the way to it's source.

+ Ride the Colca Canyon (2nd deepest in the world and twice the depth of the Gran Canyon!)

+ Ride up the coast of Peru - DAKAR country! - during wonderful beach weather (in January!)

+ Ride the 'Swiss Alps of Peru' over 15,000 ft back into the central Andes, and at the end of the day try the Natural Hot Mineral Baths!

 

See the wonders of Peru ... all from the seat of an adventure motorcycle!

 

Note: We will also have 3 seats available in the support 4x4 for accompanying non-riders, who also may be able to 2-up on the shorter pavement days!!

This 10-day 'Arrive and Drive' will be something special !  Imagine racing a new and race-prepared 250cc enduro bike (navigation equipment included) in a 5 day, 1,000 km rally in the Andes and the Amazon of beautiful Peru!

 

You will race or ride at your own pace, together with over 100 other North and South American riders up to over 14,000 ft above sea level and down into mountain jungle via roads, trails and river crossings!

 

The 'Caminos del Colono' is a re-telling of the history of the Austrian-German colonists that arrived in Peru over 150 years ago to develop the jungle covered Huancabamba River valley.  This is the week of the year where they recount their Austrian-German history and their traditions!  Be recieved at the finish line (IF you can finish!) by dancing girls in traditional garb, the shouts of 20,000 spectators, and a massive celebration to finish it off with the best German food and drink!
