RIDE DESCRIPTION

Colombia’s rough geography and mountainous terrain is great news for adventure riders!


the mountainous Andes and vast jungles remain largely uninhabited with spots of civilization scattered throughout the country. Nestled deep within the rugged terrain, some of these villages are perched in seemingly impossible-to-reach locations. Although it takes a little work to get there, when you finally arrive, these towns look like they’ve been plucked from a fairytale book; seemingly untouched by the passing of time. Exploring these places is an unforgettable experience,

 

World-Class Off-Road Riding

This tour has it all: Off-road trails. Check. Isolated villages. Check. Lush green mountain vistas with soaring wax palms over 150ft tall. Hot springs flowing from snow-capped volcanoes. Check.  Twist the throttle and lean into turn after turn after turn as you make your way through high mountain passes and fog covered forests. Check. Include the cosmopolitan city of Medellin as the starting point of the trip, and you have a backcountry motorcycle trip from heaven.

Fun Fact: As you know, Colombia is located in the Andes mountain range. What you may not know is that the Andes range actually splits into three in Colombia like a three-pronged fork with valleys between each mountain range. 

 

Combined, these cordilleras are three times the length of the Alps. The Colombian Andes are also higher than the Alps, with the tallest mountain in Colombia topping out at a staggering 5,775 masl. Mont Blanc, standing at 4,810 masl, would only be the 8th tallest mountain if it were in Colombia.
