Explore the rugged beauty of Colombia’s north coastal region and beautiful desert

We’re headed in the most northern part of South America— a little confusing, right? This exploration of Punta Gallinas will be an opportunity for you to explore the unparalleled Columbia desert as we wind across a landscape of rocks, cactus, and exotic wildlife. Along the way on our Colombia motorcycle tours, we’ll cross paths with indigenous communities who have lived in this region for centuries. As we zigzag through Punta Gallinas will then make our way over pristine waterfalls of the Sierra Nevada, ride the coastal roads and white sandy beaches and discover Tayrona Park. There’s even more to discover as we sip beers at enjoying the stunning sunset at Palomino and ride waves with local surfers. We’ll meet the local Wayuu people who live in the region and a local guide who will take us deep into the desert along their ancient paths. This rugged journey is going to test your skills and endurance. If you’re ready for a little sun, sand, occasional thunderstorm and a thrill-packed adventure then this is the perfect trip for you. Get ready for Colombia by motorcycle!
