Special Corona crisis booking conditions
As in the rest of the world, the Corona crisis also has reached Bolivia. The government has sealed off the whole country internally and externally.
Our motorcycle tours during the full lockdown have been cancelled.
The expansion of the pandemic crisis in Bolivia and as well as in the home countries of our bikers will show if it´s possible to ride the planned tours in the season 2020.
We have decided to handle all incoming bookings with a departure in 2020 more flexibly. For all new bookings it will be possible to cancel the tour free of charge up to 4 weeks before departure.
With this flexible measure we hope to satisfy the demand of interested riders in this unstable times.
Bolivia is an awesome biker country.
The BMA team
Did you ever…
…imagine yourself riding a motorcycle across the spectacular roads of South America? Ride across the largest salt lake or down the most dangerous road in the world? Swim in a hot spring at 4.400m altitude or climb up to 5.800 meters by bike? Meet indigenous people and visit ancient temples? Navigate high mountain roads with breathtaking views or steaming tropical valleys with lazy rivers?
Did you? Well, now you can do all that and much more. And without the hassle of organizing it all or the fear of getting lost into the desert or jungle.
All you have to do is choose one of our motorcycle tours, hop onto a plane and from the moment you arrive at Santa Cruz/ Bolivia airport, up until the moment you leave via the same airport, we take care of everything.
That sounds easy, but trust us, choosing which tour you want to do is only the first challenge.
We are based in Samaipata, the “Elbow of the Andes”, about 120 km/ 3 hour from Santa Cruz. This is also the place where our adventures start, usually after a nice relaxed day to acclimatize and get rid of jet lag.
The guides are multilingual (English, Français, Deutsch and others), medical trained and they are experienced motorcycle travelers. They have been living for several years in Bolivia, so they know the culture and the best way to get things done there.
We have renewed our entire motorcycle fleet in favor of Suzuki DR 650 SE, model 2018 and 2019. They are easy to handle, reliable, steer very smoothly and have electric starter. For very small, very tall or overweight riders we have special versions. Just ask us.
Off-road and safety training before each tour
We observed that interested riders don’t dare to ride with us in Bolivia because they do not trust their driving skills.
On the other side we noticed that some riders prepared themselves by special and very expensive ex. BMW off-road- and BMW sand trainings before coming on a tour with us.
During the tour, we remarked that this kind of training are not very adapted to the Bolivian terrain. That’s why we decided to offer an appropriate off-road training in combination with a Bolivia safety training.
During the training day, we will take time to practice different difficult situations like: Unpaved or stony roads, sandy soils, gravel roads, water crossings and give clear instructions on how to ride safely on the Bolivian roads, in village or cites with high traffic.
We offer this training before each tour (not before Mission Impossible tour) at the daily rental conditions.
Please contact us and plan your arrival for the day before the beginning of your tour.
