This tour will take you on a journey through Colombia where you can explore the whole country in just a short time. Your days will be spent riding on the road with Adrenaline Addicts who will introduce you to some interesting local sights and places.
Accommodation will be in shared dorms (with four to eight beds), or mid-range hotels when shared accommodation is not available. Locations stayed at are as follows:
Onsite accommodation at Drop Bear Hostel included the night before the tour.
You will meet at Adrenaline Addicts' office nice and early at 7 a.m. and get set up on your motorcycles, complete the safety briefing, finish the paperwork, and get everything strapped down on the bikes.
Then, around 8 a.m. you start heading south. Today starts with a longer stretch of simple highway riding, allowing everybody to get comfortable on the bikes. You'll stop roadside for a local lunch and push on south in order to cover one of the largest mileage days of the entire tour.
After five hours or straight highway riding, you take a turnoff and head up 1,600 meters into the mountains, enjoying the windy mountain roads and beautiful scenery along the way.
You get up, have breakfast, and go on with Day 2. Today is another high mileage day and an early start is key. You put some miles on the bikes early, aiming to get to your accomodation in Doradal in the early-mid afternoon, before going and exploring the nearby Hacienda Napoles, one of Pablo Escobar's estates that has been turned into a theme park.
After a couple of large riding days, you can afford yourselves a later start to the day this morning. After a lazy breakfast, make your way to Guatape to check out the view from El Peñol, a gigantic rock with a viewing platform on top of which provides amazing vistas of the surrounding waterways and landscape.
After lunch in the colourful Guatape, you make your way over to Rionegro and get settled in to a private farmhouse nestled in the hills of the picturesque Rionegro. Dinner tonight is a gourmet spread and with the following day being a rest day, it is the perfect time for some drinks around the bonfire.
Today is the first non-riding day of the tour and as such, you are free to do as you wish. Being so close to Medellín, you can take a taxi (both ways are included) into the downtown area and head on one of the guided city tours, or simply walk around and explore the bustling and modern metropolis. Dinner tonight will again be a massive gourmet spread back at the farmhouse before getting a good night's sleep and back on the bikes the next day.
After an early and delicious breakfast, jump back on the bikes and snake your way through some amazing mountain roads to arrive in Manizales, a university town where the party never stops, and your resting place at the end of Day 5.
This morning, take some time to explore the picturesque Manizales, then continue south and make your way to Santa Rosa de Cabal, where you stop for lunch and a swim in the thermal baths. After lunch, continue on enjoying the winding mountain roads up to the Salento coffee region, one of the most famous one in all of Colombia.
Salento is one of the most interesting and beautiful areas in Colombia and as suc,h the perfect place for the second rest day. Activities are many and varied and your guide will help organise whichever you wish. However, Adrenaline Addicts strongly recommend hiking the Valle de Cocora, an incredible five hour hike through stunning mountain scenery. There are also coffee tours and adventure sports readily available for those that aren't keen on a hike.
Today, you leave the Salento coffee region and head northeast to the port town of Honda. On the way, you pass through Ibagué to check out the famous conservatory, and then continue on to stop for lunch at the breathtaking Combeima canyon, before arriving at your accommodation in Honda.
Today is a shorter riding day, so pending on the group mood, you can have a lazy morning, or you can get moving early to arrive at your accommodation with enough time to explore Bogotá, the nation's capital city.
Your accommodation on Day 9 will be in the suburb of Chía to the north of Bogotá, at a guesthouse nestled up in the rolling hillside, and tonight's dinner is not to be missed. Visit the famous Andrés Carne de Res, a Colombian steakhouse, with a difference.
After the night out at Andrés, Bogotá is only a short ride away, and as you only have a few riding hours to complete this day, the morning is free for you to do as you please.
The ride out to Villa de Leyva is a street-rider's dream, with hours of winding, near-empty roads carved out from the valley wall. Villa de Leyva is beautiful at night and extremely safe, so the group will often go out for some drinks together in the evening before dinner at a beautiful Mediterranean restaurant.
First thing in the morning, head out to the nearby terracotta house, made entirely of clay, and the largest piece of pottery in the world. After a short tour of the site, move a little way down the road to visit the fossil museum, where the complete skeleton of a gigantic Kronosaurus is on display and makes for a very impressive sight.
After the morning's sight-seeing, push on for several hours, passing through many different colonial villages and enjoying the winding mountain roads in between before arriving in San Gil in the mid-afternoon.
In San Gil, you will be spoiled for choice by the different activities available. The area around the town is an adrenaline addict's dream due to it's proximity to the Chicamocha canyon, and mountain biking, rafting, caving, paragliding, flying foxing, and hiking trails are all available and easily organised on the spot with the help of your guide. Tonight, for dinner, go to Gringo Mike's. Judging from the name, you should know it's not at all traditional Colombian fare, but it is damn tasty.
Leaving San Gil, pass through the beautiful colonial village of Barichara, stopping to take in the Chicamocha canyon, which is the second deepest in the world at 2,000m.
After this, take off on one of the most enjoyable riding days of the tour, winding your way from the top, to the bottom of the canyon, and back up the other side before making your way into Bucaramanga for a well earned rest.
Today, it's time to get back on the highway and make your way back towards Santa Marta. Start the day early and put as many miles as you can between you and Bucaramanga, making your way towards the UNESCO heritage listed Santa Cruz de Mompox, one of only two heritage listed towns in Colombia.
On arrival in Mompox, check in to your night's accommodation, and spend the afternoon exploring the beautiful colonial-style plazas and winding streets, taking in the architecture and history the town has to offer.
Today, it's time to finish off the trip with an easy four to five-hour cruise back north to Santa Marta. Adrenaline Addicts aims to arrive back at the office in the mid-afternoon, with plenty of time to have a few drinks and debrief after an incredible two-week adventure.
Sam is one of the founding members of Adrenaline Addicts. In 2014, he and Christian, the other founding member, departed on a round-the-world trip, intending to cross six continents in five years. He spent the first nine months of the trip on the north coast of Colombia, bought a motorbike and traveled as far south as Peru, then returned to the north with Christian, where they founded the company. Prior to starting Adrenaline Addicts, Sam worked as a motorcycle instructor in the United States for several years before combining that passion with his love of Colombia.
Christian is the second founding member of Adrenaline Addicts. He traveled extensively throughout Colombia in 2014 and 2015 both together with Sam, and by himself, he worked for several adventure tour companies along the way before teaming back up with Sam in early 2016 to start the company. Prior to Adrenaline Addicts, Christian rode extensively around off-road and motocross trails throughout the United States, giving him a completely different riding background and skill set to his original business partner, complementing each other perfectly.
Brayden is the third business partner of Adrenaline Addicts. In 2015, he traveled and worked as a volunteer in Peru and Ecuador, and he discovered a love for Latin America. He made plans to visit Colombia and started his own business. Brayden met Sam and Christian in late 2016, six months after the other two had begun operations. After he worked together for several months with Sam and Christian, the three made the decision to bring on Brayden as the third partner. Prior to joining Adrenaline Addicts, Brayden has ridden for almost 10 years in Australia, parts of Asia, and South America.
You will be exploring the whole of Colombia including: Santa Marta, Ocaña, Doradal, Rionegro, Manizales, Salento, Honda, Chia, Villa de Leyva, San Gil, Bucaramanga, and Mompox.
Your package will include all breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The food will be a mixture of local, Colombian fare from trusted roadside eateries (usually lunch), and a mix of international cuisine at the different hotels and hostels you stay at. Vegetarian options are available at all meals.
