Colombia to Bolivia Starting January of 2017

Going to Medellin on December 28th and hoping to be on the road within two weeks to la paz.

The basic idea is to head through colombia and ecuador stopping at towns along the way then spend time exploring cities, towns and wilderness throughout Peru. After that I'm going to decide if I want to setup camp in la paz or keep riding but I still plan on at least making it to Uyuni (the salt flats) and to the death road in Bolivia.

Hopefully riding with one other person but interested in hearing from anyone else who's going to be riding through the area around the time. For reference I am a 28 year old male.

Good plan...timing though


I'm heading south from Bogota or Medellin for Ushuaia, and would be happy to ride along for some part of that with you, as you have similar ideas for locations but I'm not arriving for several weeks yet. I have to get my bike from cdmx to bogota, and just sorting out airfreight. If you delay or want to try and get together along the way, I'm riding from mid feb to june on a g650x midweight bike that goes anywhere. Bien viaje!

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
