Bolivia is perhaps the most spectacular yet un-discovered place one can ride in the Americas

Can you imagine riding a motorcycle through the spectacular roads of South America? Over the largest salt flat or the most dangerous road in the world? Swimming in a hot spring at 4,400 m altitude or climbing up to 5,800 m on a motorbike? Meet indigenous peoples and visit ancient temples? Cruising high mountain roads with breathtaking views or steaming tropical valleys with lazy rivers?

Do you? Well now you can experience all these adventures without the hassle of organizing everything or getting lost in remote areas like highlands, deserts or jungles.

All you have to do is choose one of our motorcycle tours, get on a plane and from the moment you arrive at the Santa Cruz, Bolivia airport until you leave, we take care of everything.

Ready for the great adventure…?

Since 2010 we are based in the village of Samaipata – the “Elbow of the Andes” – about 120 km/ 2,5 hours away from Santa Cruz. This is also the place where our bike adventures start, usually after a nice relaxed day to acclimatize and to get rid of the jetlag.

The guides are multilingual: Español, English, Français, Deutsch and others, medical trained and experienced motorcycle travellers. They have been living in Bolivia for several years so they know the culture, characteristics and geography like the back of their hand.

We have renewed our entire motorcycle fleet: The Suzuki DR650SE, model 2018 – 2024 is easy to handle, reliable and is lightweight in its class. For small, tall or overweight riders we have special modified versions.

 We also offer travelling the mentioned tours or a custom route of your choice in one of our 4WD vehicles.

Our Tours

“We drove well-developed highways in a beautiful landscape, a whole day on the Salar de Uyuni salt flats, gravel roads in the Bolivian part of the Atacama Desert, the death road, were on Lake Titicaca and much more. I’ve been to Africa, Australia, and North America, but Bolivia has beaten everything.”

Nachdem ich jetzt gestern wieder gut zu Hause angekommen bin möchte ich nochmals auf diesem Wege ganz herzlich für die tolle Highlander 1 –Tour bei Roland und Cherson bedanken. Ich war vom 28.6. - bis 12.06.24 zusammen mit drei weiteren Teilnehmenden aus Holland und England auf der Suzuki DR 650 unterwegs. Die Bikes waren alle in tadellosem Zustand und Cherson kümmerte sich kompetent auch während der Fahrt darum dass dies so blieb. Die Tour selbst ist eine sehr abwechslungsreiche Zusammenstellung von Routen, Sehenswürdigkeiten und Herausforderungen. Für mich gerade richtig. Eine sehr gute Mischung aus kurvigen Asphaltstrecken und spannenden Dirt-Road Abschnitten. Ich hatte während der ganzen Tour nicht eine Minute das Gefühl in Gefahr zu sein obwohl der Verkehr in Bolivien abenteuerlich sein kann. Roland ist ein sehr verantwortungsvoller Guide der trotz aller Schwierigkeiten wie z.B. kein Benzin an den Tankstellen oder Straßensperre durch Demonstrationen die Tour super durchgeführt hat. Die Hotels und die Restaurants waren alle prima und sehr abwechslungsreich. Es war alles dabei vom Top-Hotel bis zum sehr leckeren Mittagessen in einer einfachen bolivianischen Familie vom Land. Roland führte jeden Abend ein kurzes Briefing für den nächsten Tag durch und berücksichtigte dabei auch die Wünsche und Bedürfnisse der Teilnehmenden. Die Tour ist gespickt mit Highlights. Meine Highlights waren die Besichtigung der Silberminen mit dem lokalen Guide Jonny in Potosi und natürlich ist es unbeschreiblich schön die Salar de Uyuni mit dem Bike zu befahren.

I recently rode the 17 day Bolivia wild wild west tour with Roland (owner/guide) and Yerson (his mechanic/chase truck driver). The bikes all looked like new and were meticulously maintained low mile DRZ 650's (until one of the guys on our tour crashed one!) and the chase truck was very well stocked with parts, tubes, new tires, and medical supplies. Roland previously worked in the medical field as a nurse and was always very attentative to small details like where to eat without getting sick and our blood oxygen levels that we monitored daily since we were riding at elevations over 18;000 feet. He had a very comprehensive emergency medical kit and the field training to use it. This was Comforting because Bolivia truly is a remote country. The riding is appropriate for intermediate level riders who are looking to vacation, sight see and ride at the same time. There were no extreme technical hard enduro sections just fun scenic dirt. Some of they locations we visited were truly spectacular and you would never find on your own: Dinosaur Brontasaurus tracks, The Alien Hatchery (rocks that look like giant eggs), ghost towns, crawling inside silver mines...etc. The trip was a good value for the money. Food and accommodations were great considering where we were on the planet, and the scenery was amazing. I would consider the riding on the light easy side but I spent my life as an offroad/motocross racer.. At this point I've ridden in almost every country in Central and South America. Bolivia posts many challenges to ride on your own like simply buying gasoline. They won't sell it to bikes without a Bolivian liscence plate.. Roland actually siphoned gas from his tank three different times to help out foreign Adventure bike riders at gas stations that could not buy gas. This tour is a great option to see Bolivia.

I’ve just returned from the Highlander 1 tour (15 days). Roland & BMA were very professional & attentive from the very start to the finish, both during the tour & importantly from early days during my initial enquiry & various questions. Roland is a very professional guide with a keen eye on safety for his clients, whilst also ensuring they have a great experience too. Roland not only gave us a great motorcycle trip but also incorporated lots of interesting sights, places & histories of Bolivia. BMA’s motorbikes are well maintained, easy to ride & gave us no breakdown issues at all during the tour. I had a very enjoyable, scenic & interesting ride with BMA & would not hesitate to recommend Roland + Yerson + BMA to anyone wishing to explore Bolivia by motorcycle. Thanks again BMA & keep doing what you do best !! All the best wishes from Paul Harding, England

We had a great tour, Highlander 1, 15 days in May and June with a mixed European group of 3 riders and my wife in the support vehicle. BMA has been very helpful from the beginning of my contact with Ronaldo, instructions and tour itinerary were clear. Although because of roadblocks and gasoline shortage in the Cochabamba area we had to deviated to a plan B halfway the tour. But BMA managed thru their network of Bolivian acquaintances to get some extra gasoline so we could continue on our journey. BMA made sure we could visit the, for me, highlights of the tour like Potosi, Uyuni and the Altiplano. Ronaldo is a professional guide with a lot of knowledge on the amazing landscape, culture and lokal sites and attractions, where to lunch, have a rest and get some coffee. We also made some smaller detours for some extra scenic photoshoots as I was carrying my cameras with me.. Bikes where well maintained and easy to ride. No technical troubles during the ride, not even a flat tire.. Hotels are as can be expected in the Bolivian country side and better quality in the bigger city's. That's part of the adventure. We had a beautiful ride in a beautiful country with a friendly group of like minded travellers. Thanks for the company Ronaldo and to Yerson in the support vehicle, and T. and P. as fellow riders. We would do it any time again! Best wishes.. H&A

I just did the highlander tour. the obvious stuff is great. like the views and towns. its a very structured schedule. the bikes are in very good condition. and they maintain the bike when needed during the tour. more importantly the guide knows things and has suggestions based on his experience living in Bolivia. (e.g.) when to eat certain foods and drinks in certain areas. tries his best to provide comfort in accommodations and restaurants. that is difficult because what the country can provide is limited. always good with wardrobe questions while riding. he has a lot of knowledge when it comes to health and or medical attention. always finding a solution for a personal issue that someone may have. dietary, or allergy, or injury. he helped me greatly with an allergic skin reaction I had. fluent in Spanish he was able to translate medical terminology. also having the chase truck is a huge help. carry all your big luggage and extra tools and spare parts. and the driver is a great guy who is fun to hang out with. feels like a friend. they do all the accommodations costs and fuel and food and airport national park costs and everything so you don't have to worry or think about any of those logistics.

Based in the US, I have ridden thru a few countries in South America. Despite that Bolivia throws a lot more unique challenges your way. Rolandos outfit has it all figured out. Bike are meticulously maintained, routes are amazing, every hotel and meal is curated for safety and an authentic Bolivian experience. I would not ride Bolivia without these guys, and the safety of their chase truck/mechanic. I plan to go back again! 🙂

I enjoyed this tour a lot and this is coming from someone in his 4rth year on a South American motorcycle ride. Roland, the owner/guide and his assistant Yerson gave us a safe and enjoyable experience. I would recommend this tour without reservation.

BMA did an amazing job… 4 guys, 8 days on a custom highland tour. Great views, twisty roads, the surreal Salar de Uyuni, silver mines in Potosí, amazing meals and decent hotels in beautiful remote small towns in the highlands of Bolivia. Rolando took care of everything, the only thing we had to do was to have a great time riding motorcycles is this beautiful country.
