35 day Expedition starts and ends in Beunos Aires

The High Andes motorcycle tour is a perfect introduction to riding in South America. From the dynamic heart of Buenos Aires to the remote high altitude salt flats in the Andes, from the white washed adobe churches to the mysterious Nasca Lines, this is quintessential South America, along with some of the best riding on the planet.

You can climb the ancient Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, take a reed boat out on Lake Titicaca and visit Che Guavara’s home. Watch out for llamas and vicuna on the twisty mountain roads of the Andes and spot pink flamingos in the salt lakes. And don’t forget to spend the evenings tasting incredible wines and eating the best steaks in the world!

We use good standard 4* hotels and some 3 * hotels for this trip. We do not camp or use hostels.

You need to be aware that the hotels standards in Bolivia (the poorest country in South America) may not be what you would normally expect of an equivalent described standard in Europe and North America.

All accommodation has en suite bathrooms and, for most locations, satellite TV in the rooms. Many hotels have free wifi, but it can be slow or sometimes not working in the more remote locations.

We start and end the tour at the 4* hotel, La Scala Hotel, Buenos Aires. Some of our favourites hotels on this tour are:

Private Collection Casa Andina, Puno, Peru

Hotel Rosario, La Paz & Copacabana, Bolivia

Hotel La Comarca, Purmamarca, Argentina

Hotel Boutique Villa Vicuna, Cafayate, Argentina
