Adventure Atacama Desert AAP

Argentina   |  Bolivia   |  Chile

A fantastic motorcycle tour to discover the natural wonders of South America!

One of the greatest adventures - let's explore the exciting Altiplano on motorcycle. The Argeninan city Salta with its magnificent colonial buildings, beautifully situated at the foothills of the Andes, is our place to start and final destination. Over the next few days, we will conquer these stunning mountain range, cross the famous Paso de Jama at 4,200m and reach the Chilean high plateau in the Atacama Desert. Snow-capped volcanoes, spewing geysers and wide dunes await us in the midst of a deeply impressive landscape that challenges all senses.

Via Ollagüe we reach the border to Bolivia and soon thereafter the Salar de Uyuni the largest salt pan in the world, which we are also allowed to ride on. Bolivia, being a very poor country in terms of economy, offers at the same time an incredible richness of culture, spectacular scenery and breathtaking motorcycling roads. We enjoy this extensively on our way through the Andes to the silver city of Potosi, southwards again to Tarija and further on to Argentina, where our fantastic tour will - way to early - find its end. We are overwhelmed by the scenery, the great roads, the pleasant traffic and the people we met.
