Flight to Antofagasta and bike pickup. The participants are met at Antofagasta Airport (ANF) and taken to their hotel. After check-in follows the bike collection, signing of contracts, group briefing, organisation of baggage, and the welcome dinner. Departure will be on the following day.

Day 2 and 3: Antofagasta, Chile - Iquique, Chile - Tacna, Peru

The sea-breeze from the Pacific Ocean will accompany us across the Atacama Desert, which stretches as far as southern Peru. Temperatures can reach 35°C. and the intense sun will follow you along the bends that overlook the coast.

Day 4: Tacna, Peru - Arequipa, Peru

The mountain chain of the Andes comes between you and Arequipa, the second most populous city in the world, famous for its eventful nightlife and the Bohemian-style architecture of its streets.

Day 5: Arequipa, Peru - Nazca, Peru

You continue on your way along the coast of the Pacific Ocean between bends and inlets, passing through oases lived in by farmers and miners. Enveloped by the sea breeze and the spray of the infant waves on the rocks, you shall reach the city of Nazca, famous throughout the world for the 13,000 geoglyphs traced in the Nazca desert dating back to 300 BCE.

Day 6: Nazca, Peru - Soraya, Peru

The inter-oceanic highway known as the PE30 is without a shadow of doubt one of the most beautiful roads in the world to travel on by motorbike and the group will discover part of it today. You shall leave the Nazca Desert behind you and begin a rapid ascent of the heights of the Peruvian plateau, discovering one of the most impressive stretches of asphalt on the planet. The series of bends will lead you across an endless variety of landscapes and altitudes of more than 15,748 feet above sea level.

Day 7: Soraya, Peru - Urubamba, Peru

The second part of the inter-oceanic PE30 will be every bit as exciting. The bends intensify, leading you to the heart of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, the home of the Inca Empire and seat of the capital of this glorious dynasty: Cuzco. You shall follow the banks of the Urubamba and stop for two nights at the small town of that name, renowned for its proximity to the most famous Inca ruins in the world.

Day 8: Urubamba, Peru (Machu Picchu)

The group will be taken to Machu Picchu on board a characteristic train with folk dancing. At a height of 7972 feet above sea level, Machu Picchu is the third largest archaeological site in the world as well as being one of the Seven Wonders of the World and a Unesco World Heritage Site. The history guarded by its ruins make this day an unforgettable experience. On return, the group will be free to organise their own evening.

Day 9: Urubamba, Peru - Puno, Peru

The Sacred Valley of the Incas and its splendour enfold the kilometres that you shall travel today along the Peruvian plateau. After a fascinating stop in picturesque Pucarà, you shall continue towards the city on the shores of Lake Titicaca, a navigable lake situated at highest altitude and the 18th largest lake in the world. A dinner awaits you among the streets of the city centre and you shall pass an enchanting night with a view over the lake.

Day 10: Puno, Peru - La Paz, Bolivia

You shall ride along the shores of Titicaca as far as the wonderful peninsula of Copacabana, from whose shores you shall cross the lake on board a wooden raft. After going through customs, you shall leave Peru and make your entry into Bolivia, continuing towards La Paz, considered to be the highest city in the world and also one of the Seven Wonder Cities of the planet.

Day 11: La Paz, Bolivia - Coroico, Bolivia - La Paz, Bolivia

The group will leave for an expedition heading into the Bolivian jungle. The drop of 1,600 metres and more consists of a series of perfectly asphalted hairpin bends and will include lunch in characteristic Coroico. On the way back, the group will be put to the test on the unpaved surface of the notorious Camino de la Muerte (Death Road), famous for its 40 kilometers stretch, open to transit and capable of generating strong emotions to anyone riding it on a motorbike.

Day 12: La Paz, Bolivia - Potosí, Bolivia

The Bolivian plateau will lead you as far as the Frailes mountain chain, characterised by breath-taking bends and multi-coloured rock walls. In the heart of the valley is hidden the ranch where you shall be guests for two nights. Dating back to 1557, this hacienda is the keeper of stories and legends, as well as the trappings of the period’s horsemanship, pre-Columbus ceramics and a collection of books that is unique in the world.

For the occasion, Motoaventura Tours will offer the group a dinner served on sixteenth-century tables and chairs. Beyond the slopes of the legendary hill of Cerro Rico, extends the largest silver mine of the XVIth and XVIIth centuries. The group will wear protective clothing and carry torches to venture inside the labyrinth of tunnels of the mina de plata. Workers in the industry will tell of the history and bring to life for the visitors the ritual of thanks to the Pachamama. An authentic and un-missable experience.

Day 13: Potosí, Bolivia - Uyuni, Bolivia

The fast curves enthusiasts are going to enjoy a day without equal! The road leading to Uyuni is completely without traffic and will allow the group to have 100% enjoyment of the recently asphalted bends of the Chichas canyon. Having landed on the salt flats of Uyuni, you shall visit the sculpture dedicated to the Dakar rally and the Isla Incahuasi, travelling more than 150 kilometers in the heart of the largest salt desert in the world. You shall stop for the night in a four-star hotel built entirely from blocks of salt.

Day 14 and 15: Uyuni, Bolivia - San Pedro de Atacama, Chile

The group will tackle 250 kilometers of hard-packed unpaved road that links Uyuni to the border with Chile. You shall cross a lunar landscape characterised by the chains of rocks of Alota and the salt flats of Chiguana. Once you have returned to Chile, a long asphalted stretch awaits you that takes you to the heart of the Atacama Desert, considered to be the driest in the world.

In the town of the same name, you shall stop for two nights. The group will enjoy a well-earned rest and be free to organise their own day visiting the characteristic craft shops of San Pedro de Atacama. In late afternoon, you shall leave the hotel for a brief bike excursion that will take you inside the famous Valley of the Moon. You shall enter a tunnel carved out by erosion of the rock and await the sunset to admire the landscape of the desert from the top of a dune.

Day 16: San Pedro de Atacama, Chile - Antofagasta, Chile (flight)

The Atacama Desert will take you to the coast of the Pacific Ocean but before reaching your final destination, you shall visit the Mano del Desierto, a sandstone sculpture that rises between the dunes of the desert and the asphalt of the iconic Ruta Panamericana. Once you have arrived at Antofagasta, the members of the group will return their motorbikes and get ready for the farewell dinner.
