This is perhaps the most complete Colombian motorcycle tour experience. Riding from the Andes to the caribbean and back, you will see and feel what makes Colombia so special. Inmerse yourself in the culture, the cuisine and the top notch twisty riding.
We begin our tour in Colombia’s capital and make our way to the coffee region. Here we will learn about the coffee culture and it’s people. We then head north towards Medellín, considered by most as Colombia’s most beautiful city and recent recipient of the worlds most innovative city.
After experiencing this metropolis we make our way out of the mountains and towards the caribbean, where we will be spending a couple of days in Cartagena.
After our rest in this lovely colonial city we begin our way back towards the capital, but not before spending time in the lovely beaches of Palomino, the unique natural area of Los Estoraques and the beautiful colonial towns of Barichara and Villa de Leyva. In 16 days of motorcycle riding you will experience the wonders of the whole continent of South America.

Adventures 57 Off-Road Academy
Congratulations to Luis Alejandro, Andres, and the entire A57 team. An intense, demanding and very well planned and executed course; I had never demanded so much on a motorcycle. Since yesterday, the smile on my face has not been erased. Expected from now the advanced level
