Bolivia is brimming with adventure, culture, and beauty
Bolivia may be only one of two landlocked countries in South America, but within those borders, you will find an incredible blend of cultures, geography, and history waiting to be explored! The more remote stretches outside the typical tourist destinations offer all sorts of outdoor adventure, like rock climbing, whitewater rafting, and jungle treks. These sparsely populated areas are perfect for an adventure touring motorcycle trip. You can gear up, and take off down rough dirt roads through mountains and jungles, while immersing in the culture. The people of Bolivia and their culture date back thousands of years, and comprise a unique mix of numerous Native American populations, Spanish colonialism, and the more recent struggles for independence and democracy. The further you get from the major population centers the more connected you will become to the traditions and history of the locals. One spectacular way to immerse yourself in this incomparable culture is through one of our many Bolivia motorcycle tours. Bolivia’s geography and natural beauty is no less diverse. It comprises the soaring heights of the Andes mountains, the martian landscape of the Uyuni salt flats, the world’s highest lake (Lake Titicaca at 3,805m), and much, much more. The country is also loaded with gorgeous national parks. These include the amazing biodiversity of Madidi and the Cataratas Arcoiris waterfall of Noel Kempff Mercado. There are also the ruins of Tiwanaku, which was part of a pre-Incan civilization, and is now a UNESCO World Heritage site! With one of Planet Ride’s Bolivia adventure tours, you’ll cruise on two wheels from one of these awesome places to the next.

Other Need-to-Know Information about Bolivia
The climate in Bolivia is no less varied than the culture and geography. In fact, it coincides with that geography and ranges from humid and tropical in the llanos region to the cold, arid desert of the altiplano. In general, summer lasts from November through March and is usually warm and rainier, while the remainder of the year is colder and drier. For an adventure motorcycle tour, we would recommend traveling between April and December.
International arrivals in Bolivia, typically mean landing in La Paz, but Santa Cruz is another large hub for the country. Many of our tours begin in one of these two cities. For those making a broader tour of South America, it is possible to enter the country overland by car or bus. Once in Bolivia, Buses, planes, and even trains are all good ways to get around the country. Should you be arriving overland, keep in mind that many of the roads in Bolivia are not paved, especially as you get further away from major cities. Lastly, you’ll want to make sure you have your visa in order. Most Europeans and Central and South Americans will not need a visa. Canadians can enter without a visa, but may only stay for 30 days, although, that can be extended to a total of 90 days with a visa. U.S. nationals can obtain a visa that is good for ten years, but have a few extra rules to follow. You must have proof of a hotel reservation, sufficient funds, and pay a $160 fee.
