Major Motorcycle Expeditions

Compass Expeditions offer a range of "Once in a Lifetime" major motorcycle expeditions that should feature on every motorcyclist's bucket list. Above 80 days in length these motorcycle adventures are fully supported with ride leader, Compass Expeditions crew and support vehicle and trailer to carry all luggage and supplies. You can take part in these Major Motorbike Adventures on your own motorcycle with shipping included in the price or opt to rent one of our adventure ready BMW F700GS, F800GS or R1200GS with all fuel and maintenance taken care of.

Our best known expedition is the 105 Day London to Magadan: Road of Bones motorcycle expedition made famous by adventurers Charley Boorman and Ewan McGregor during the Long Way Round. While the old road in Eastern Siberia is no longer used the experience of riding our motorcycles on the Silk Road, through beautiful Kyrgyzstan, through stunning Mongolia and across Russia is still one of the motorcycle world's greatest adventures.

Our 80 Day Cairo to Cape Town Motorcycle Expedition explores beautiful Africa from the Egyptian Pyramids, through Northern Sudan, into the cool mountains of Ethiopia, across the wildlife filled plains of Kenya and Tanzania and into Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Namibia and South Africa. Riding your motorcycle in Africa is an experience not to be missed and along the way we visit the highlights, explore reserves and National Parks to view the Big 5 and Victoria Falls, Serengeti Plains and Ngorongoro Crater before ending at Cape Agulhas. This incredible motorcycle adventure should not be missed.

Finally, imagine taking part in our most comprehensive motorcycle expedition yet. Our South America 360 Motorcycle Expedition travels around the circumference of South America visiting the most beautiful places that the New World has to offer. Ride your motorcycle through scenic Patagonia, to tumultuous Iguazu Falls, along Brazil's steamy coastline and then delve into the Amazon by river ferry. From there we explore Venezuela and visit Angel Falls, the tallest in the world, cross to riding paradise in Colombia and explore the mountains and coast of Ecuador. Peru offers incredible riding along the Panamericana Highway, through to the Inca capital of Cusco and iconic Machu Picchu perched on terraces overlooking the sacred Urubamba River. We turn our motorcycles east to Lake Titicaca and it's floating Islands, enter Bolivia and La Paz before an optional ride down the "Death Road". No visit to Bolivia should pass without visiting the amazing Uyuni Salt Flats high in the Andes and we'll have a good chance to explore the beauty before crossing over to Chile and the Atacama Desert for final piece of magic. Finally we'll ride back down to Santiago where the motorcycle adventure of a lifetime ends.

Our Motorcycle Expeditions allow you to really experience the best that the world has to offer on your motorcycle or ours and we invite you to explore it all with us on our next adventure!

Understanding The Tour Grade System

This ride grade system is a guide only and it should not be assumed that if a grade 4 ride, for example, is booked and a rider has had limited experience on dirt that it will be beyond them.

Likewise it should not be assumed that if a grade one ride is booked a rider is assured that no dirt will be ever encountered, governments love road works.
