Laugh Tour schedule 2015 Bolivia Motorcycle Adventures

It is early, but people were asking for it.
So… Our tour-planning for 2015 is ready.

We have stuffed it with a bunch of awesome tours here in Bolivia.
If you want to know it all, you best go and visit our website:
www.boliviamotorcycleadventures.com

But I can already tell you this:

[We start in April (the beginning of the dry season) with a (17 days) Wild Wild West tour
that visits the southern parts of Bolivia. The scenery is simply the best available and it is
no coincidence that the 2014 Dakar used the same route we use.

In May we do the same (Yes, we also love this tour).

June is reserved for a (15 days) Highlander 1 tour that visits the Altiplano (highlands)
of Bolivia, including the 500 year old silver-mines of Potosi (where you bet to blow up some dynamite),
the largest salt-flats of the world, The trail of Che Guevara, the indigenous market in Tarabuca
and the white city: Sucre.

In July we head out for a Highlander 2 tour. This is not just an extension of the
Highlander 1, it is just about the best of what Bolivia has to offer. 3 weeks of adventures, culture,
nature and totally awesome roads, including the infamous “Death Road”, coca-plantations
in the Yungas, the islands in Lake Titicaca and the longest zip-line in the world (1,5 KM ! ! !).

In August, when the dry season is in full swing and it has not rained for a few months,
the Amazon “opens up”, so for those who love riding a motorbike surrounded by alligators,
peddle a canoe in piranha-invested rivers and have a swim with dolphins, this is your ticket to
the adventure of a lifetime.

September is Wild Wild West time again. Ride with Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,
Che Guevara, cross “the scariest bus-ride of Bolivia” on two wheels and more… Much more.

Another (15 days) Highlander 1 is planned in October and we close the season in
November with a full blown Highlander 2 tour.

But wait… it gets even better. If your preferred date and/or tour is not there… Let us know
and we’ll fix you up with your exact wishes.

All our planned tours do not require a “minimum number of participants”. We don’t do that nonsense.
Every tour in our schedule has our “guaranteed departure”. No matter how many people are in it…
it will go ahead as planned. So no risks for you and your plans!

And as always, if you book your tour before the end of this year, you will get it for this year’s price.

Don’t wait too long, have a look at our website and plan your ultimate adventure vacation.
All you need to do is ride… We take care of the rest.

Wicked Motorcycle Diaries tour October 13, 2014

We have got a few spaces left on our 9 day Motorcycle Diaries tour,
starting on October 13, 2014.


Thinking about a short break? Want something spectacular to do? Try this!

Day 1. Airport pickup at Viru viru, Santa Cruz (alt. 400 mtr.)
We pick you up at the airport of Santa Cruz, Bolivia from where we drive to the small town Samaipata (120 km).
There we check into a comfortable hotel and spend the rest of the day to relax and rest from the flight.
If your flight arrives late, we will spend the night in Santa Cruz. In that case the following day is considered day 1.

Day 2. Samaipata (alt. 1,600 mtr.)
We start with a "briefing" where we learn more about our route and about each other. Then it is time to meet your bike.
To get used to the bike we go for a ride to the archeological site "El Fuerte" which is 5 km on tarmac and 5 km on dirt.
Here you will hear everything about the Incas you ever wanted to know but were afraid to ask.
We'll also pass by some Che Guevara spots like the old Samaipata police-station they attacked.
Back in town we prepare for the start of our adventure the next day, have a nice dinner and turn in early.

Day 3. To Camiri (alt. 400 mtr.) 340 km, 30% offroad
In the morning we leave Samaipata at first on asphalt, but soon we leave that behind us
as we cross the "codo de los Andes" to Rio Seco Florida.
Back on a more smooth road- surface we continue to Ipita where we spend the night.
The road we followed is more or less the route Che followed, but then in opposite direction.

Day 4. To Monteagudo, via Lagunillas, the guerilla camp 160 km, 90% offroad
We continue our route to Lagunillas, the place where the guerilla camp was located.
After visiting this we move on to Muyupampa (where Regis Dubrey was captures)
and then to Monteagudo where we spend the night.

Day 5. To Villa Serrano 150 km, 100% offroad
Following dusty gravel roads across wild scenery we continue to Villa Serrano, the town where,
according to those who live there, the charango was invented.
We visit a traditional charango factory and if we are lucky we can see the largest charango on earth.

Day 6. To La Hihuera, Che's last days 85 km, 100% offroad
Today we cross the Rio Grande and have a picnic lunch on the suspension bridge across this mighty river.
If the water level is not to high we can even go for a swim.
At the end of the afternoon we arrive in la Higuera, the place where Che met his fate.
We visit the school building in which he was executed and with luck talk to
eye witnesses of the events now some 40 years ago.
Of course we hear the entire story during a candle-light dinner.

Day 7. To Samaipata, via Vallegrande, Che's grave 180 km, 40% offroad
Via the small mountain town Pucara, we reach Vallegrande where the lifeless body of Che was presented to the world.
We visit the laundry-tables where he was displayed and the place where he was secretly buried for almost exactly 30 years.
He now rests in his beloved Cuba.
After lunch we head to Samaipata where we will arrive some 2 hours later.

Day 8 To Santa Cruz
We leave our bikes behind and set off for Santa Cruz where you can do some last minute souvenir shopping
and enjoy Brazilian churasquero and Oriental cuisine.

Day 9. To the airport.
We bring you to the airport, help you with the check-in and as you walk through customs we say goodbye.

How does that sound to you? A small (but big) adventure
