This international South Pacific motorcycle adventure tour will take from Quito, Ecuador to Cusco in Peru. A large part of this tour will be using the route that the Incas used for commercial and cultural purposes. We will head from Quito south to the Peruvian border.
On this part of the tour, you will see the Ecuadorian Andes while riding down to the flat lands that are part of the province of “Guayas” and “El oro”, filled with rice and banana plantations on both sides of the road.
Once we cross the border, we will be officially in the Peruvian dessert, this dessert is known for its extra-terrestrial appearance filled with sand and rocks for hundreds of Km.
The ride continues south on the National Route 30A to Lima, where we will have a 2 day stop to get to see the best that the capital city of Peru has to offer, at the same time we will do some maintenance on our bikes and support vehicle.
From Lima we will keep heading south to the city of Pisco, where the national liquor is made, we will visit some specialized stores for you to buy some real 100% Peruvian Pisco. In Pisco we will continue to the famous town of Nasca where we will stop and see the lines of Nasca in the Peruvian desert, this is an obligated strop to see this part of Inca history. We will continue on 30A to the east where we will head to the national park and natural reserve of “Pampa Galeras”, which is one of the most beautiful locations in Peru.
Continuing with our tour we will now head to the town of Huasipurco, Cotaruse, Colcabamba, and Abancay, now we are really close to our final destination of Cusco!
Once in Cusco we will stay for 2 days and see why this part of the world was so greatly influenced by the Incas, you will see why this city was the pride and joy of the Inca civilization.
NOTE: In order to have a totally different experience on this tour we also offer the possibility to enter Ecuador on our way back north through Macará, meaning that we will take a detour in Piura (Peru) and head to the Amazon region of Peru, offering you the opportunity of getting to know the Peruvian as well as the Ecuadorian Amazon region. The scenery is totally different from the desert that we saw on the way down.
** In order to make better use of your time, we also offer this international route with the same duration but with the option of being able to return to your country of origin from Lima. In this option the Quito-Lima tour is much more detailed, with more stops and interaction with the local culture. For pricing and more details please call or email us!
