We’ll have a briefing in our rental motorcycle offices in Quito, where the last paperwork will be filled, gear will be given and tested and the bike of your choice will be delivered. Then, after a quick brief on roads, safety, and quick guide, you’ll depart on your Ecuador motorcycle tour. We start with a long day, but very entertaining crossing the Ecuadorian Andes until we reach our destination, Cuenca. After a bike ride of 30 minutes, you’ll be leaving Quito. The first thing that greets us is the Cotopaxi volcano, this is the highest active snow-capped volcano in the world, it gives us its blessing and we start our trip in the best way. We continue our adventure along the Pan-American highway heading south, we cross the city of Ambato to reach another iconic point, the Chimborazo Volcano. This is the closest point to the sun measured from the center of the earth. Our next stop is the Palmira desert, one of the few deserts in the Andes, a small stop to enjoy it and we continue towards one of the best landscapes that Ecuador has. We arrived at the Chunchi valley, not only its landscapes are the strong point, but also a road with many curves that will allow us to enjoy our motorcycles 100%. After a couple of hours of enjoying the road, we arrive at our destination, Cuenca, which welcomes us with a pleasant climate and its colonial architecture. A small tour of the city ends with a delicious dinner with typical dishes of the country. Time to rest and prepare for the next day.

We will cross roads surrounded by sand dunes, inhospitable landscapes along the coast, and straight roads that will allow us to speed up a little more and arrive at our destination in a good time.
