about the road:
We will spend most of the trip on the altiplano. It’s going to be high: most of the journey leads on the tracks located above 4,000 meters. We will also have to cross quite a few sections with corrugations and sand. There are tracks with streams and mud. We will cross the Andes mountains through the pass of almost five thousand meters altitude. HMS sickness can be felt. Long days on the motorbike can provoke fatigue. As always in high mountains, a lot will depend on the weather. At the beginning and end of the tour we will mostly stick to the paved roads. The rest is pure off-road fun.
It is not a race, and we care about safety: We will be going at our own pace and make sure all participants reach the destination safely.
Although it is the middle of the South American summer, the phenomenon of “invierno boliviano” (Bolivian winter) occurs on the Bolivian altiplano. Tempreatures can change quickly and radically. It may even snow. You have to be prepared for all weather conditions. And we have to ready to modify the route due to snow-covered roads or mountain passes. It will be hot in the Atacama Desert and around Santiago de Chile.
Remember this is a motorcycle trip, so you have to use adequate gear. We will drive through very diversified areas, including higher altitude roads, please be prepared for changing weather conditions. You have to drink a lot – camelbak is a must. Sunscreen and sunglasses must always be on hand. You have to take into account the possible altitude sickness. The weather can be very capricious. We will experience extreme conditions: from heat to possibly snow.
