Adventure Machu Picchu ACP

Chile   |  Peru

Desert, Andes and mountains: A real Machu Picchu motorcycle adventure!

Our first miles in the south of Peru take us along the Pacific to Moquegua and then we head on to one of the most beautiful parts of the longest road in the world, the Pan- American Highway. Soon we reach the ancient port of Puerto Inca. The road from Nazca to Ollantaytambo is around 500 miles long. Turn after turn, we guide our motorcycles towards today‘s destination, where we take a train to the famous Machu Picchu to experience this unique sight overlooking the Urubamba valley.

After exploring Cusco, the former capital of the Incas, we will continue our ride on the Altiplano directly to the highest navigable lake in the world, Lago Titicaca. Then we are off to see the Colca Canyon, where amazing landscapes are waiting for us! Arequipa, the white city at the foothills of the Andes, is our destination for the next two days. With its numerous colonial style buildings, it is really a nice place. From the balcony of our hotel right next to the cathedral we can watch the sunset while we sip our last Pisco Sour before heading back to Arica.

Adventure Machu Picchu

This was another amazing trip put together by Edelweiss Bike Travel and being served by its Canadian agent Farewell Travel Service! From wheels up to finish this is a motorcycle adventure for every kind of rider. We started with best coastal roads I have ever been on in the world. We then turned inland to mountain and desert riding much like the American west but without the traffic and some of the highest peaks you can ever get to via a motorcycle! Cusco and Arequipa are cities that rival any European towns near the Mediterranean and you can‘t leave out the amazing Machu Picchu! This adventure has something for everyone and should not be missed. Thank you!

Abenteuer Machu Picchu

Sabine und ich haben schon immer von einer Reise zum Machu Picchu geträumt und als Motorradfahrer hatte Edelweiss Bike Travel genau das richtige Angebot für uns. Schon die Vorbereitung war perfekt. Mit viel Erfahrung hat Frau Maag vom Reisebüro Eudenbach-Müller alle Flüge und ein Wochenende für uns zusammengestellt. Die Tour selbst war ein Traum und übertraf jede Erwartung.
