Motorcycle Tours in South America

South America has long been the stuff of legends in the annals of motorcycle travel. Several of the world’s most famous motorcycle journeys take place there – Adventures that are on the “bucket list” of motorcycle travelers from all over the world. Many of these journeys are ones which many riders can only dream of experiencing.

Imagine beginning a trip with a kickoff dinner at Llao Llao in Bariloche – probably the most famous hotel in South America, and surely the most iconic. Ride through Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego to Ushuaia – the southernmost point in the world to which it’s possible to ride a motorcycle, topped off perhaps with a cruise to Antarctica.

During your trek from Bariloche to Ushuaia, imagine visiting the Perito Moreno Glacier, having a free day to explore Torres del Paine National Park in Chile, culminating with a ride through Tierra del Fuego National Park in Ushuaia.

Or, perhaps you’d like book an incredible off-road adventure through some of the most remote and beautiful parts of the Andes Mountains. Begin and end “Los Andes Misteriosos” in Mendoza, Argentina – the heart of Argentina’s wine country.

Other riders may prefer our Empire of the Incas Adventure, featuring an exciting ride that includes a visit to the ancient Inca civilization at Machu Picchu.

Ayres Adventures offers all of these exciting possibilities.

In South America, the people are warm and friendly, the food is great, and road conditions vary from wonderful to wild! You don’t have to be an experienced enduro rider to travel to the continent’s most interesting attractions. While there are some great off-road opportunities, you can visit many of the most popular attractions without leaving the pavement.

Ayres Adventures was originally founded to offer tours in South America and we have more experience there than any other tour company. We’ve carefully selected routes that provide a safe and enjoyable trip. For very experienced riders, our South American tours are suitable for couples wishing to ride two-up. All of our South American tours include the use of a comfortable support vehicle for non-riding companions and for carrying luggage.

Despite its legendary status as an attraction for the world’s most adventurous motorcyclists, in many respects South America remains one of the best-kept secrets in the world of motorcycle travel. We believe that you, like so many of our Adventurers before you, will be pleasantly surprised at the quality of the meals and accommodations, the friendliness of the people, the natural beauty of the terrain, and the rich cultural diversity of the countries you’ll visit.

I’ve ridden eight Ayres Adventures tours, three of them IBA (Iron Butt Association) specific rides and haven’t been disappointed. All have been first class, unique, and full of very pleasant surprises. Ron and his staff have always been courteous, helpful, and patient. In fact, he has found some special tour leaders and guides. By the end of the tour, they become friends that we look forward to seeing again.

Each tour had it’s own highlights. The IBA tours fit our style of riding since we are interested in seeing as much as we can and not spending a lot of time at the destination hotels. If you ride one, be prepared to cover some distance in all kinds of road and weather conditions.

Ushuaia had been one of those must see places for us and the South America IBA ride was the perfect way to do it, we ended up with more than we expected. The scenery was spectacular, the food was excellent, and this group of riders made it a ride to remember.

We enjoyed this one so much, we’re already signed up for the Alps IBA ride this September and the Portugal, Spain, and Morocco tour next year.
