Tour Ecuador by Motorcycle
Ecuador has everything from snowcapped volcanoes to Amazonian rain forest and tropical ocean, with hundreds of miles of road in between — and the best way to explore it all might be by motorcycle. With Freedom Bike Rental’s tour, you’ll get a dual-sport bike, a handpicked itinerary, and a GPS to help you find your way. Riding on a mix of pavement and dirt tracks, you’ll cruise past banana plantations, local markets, and the ancient Incan solar temple in Ingapirca, known as Ecuador’s Machu Picchu. Plus, Freedom will be there for you should any problem arise. “We managed to wear through a front tire in eight days,” says Keith Matteson of Newport, Oregon, “but Freedom gave us the GPS coordinates of a bike shop in town, and we were back on the road in an hour.” After 1,600 miles on the bike, you’ll have a year’s worth of stories.
The Details: 12-day tours offered year-round, from $2,750. [freedombikerental.com]Back to top
