The Trans Amazonian Challenge is a 52 day long adventure motorcycle expedition traversing the great Amazonian basin and visiting 8 countries (Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Brazil, French Guiana, Suriname, Guyana and Venezuela) in the northern part of South America.
This event is intended only for adventure
touring enthusiasts who can demonstrate off road riding experience, the physical condition as well as social qualities conducive to teamwork and required flexibility for the success of the journey. Only a very limited group of riders will get the chance to participate in this challenge to overcome the approximately 9,000 miles of mixed terrain and spectacular adventures. The expedition is only possible to complete once a year due to massive rainfall in some of the areas throughout the rest of the year.
Everything from dirt, mud, rain, forest tracks, mountain passes, boat crossings and beautiful paved roads will be mixed in with interesting historic and cultural destinations, wildlife, Unesco World Heritage sites, incredible scenery and awesome experiences with both locals, team and crew members. There will be plenty to write home about. This is a demanding journey and riders need to be prepared for anything.
The expedition will be fully supported with a 4×4 support truck, on-bike guide and a very experienced crew from Motolombia and MotoDiscovery. You can chose to ride either your own bike or rent a fully equipped dual sport bike from Motolombia in Colombia.
