Where Should I Go?
Motorcycle touring Chile should no doubt be on your to-do list. It is a beautiful and diverse country and there is plenty of adventure to be had. Chile is the longest country in the world and has one of the most diverse climates to match. From the Andes mountains to barren deserts or beautiful coasts; It’s so diverse that motorcycle touring in Chile is possible any time of year, as long as you know where to go. In the winter heading north is your best bet where you can enjoy visiting the flamingos and lagoons of the beautiful Atacama Desert. During the summer try exploring the south in Patagonia.
Organized Motorcycle Tours Chile
If planning all the details sounds a little too stressful I recommend going with an organized motorcycle tour group. Ride-Chile is located in the center of Santiago and offers a variety of options for the adventurous traveler. Guided tours and self-guided tours, In a group or solo. Tours can range from 2 days to 21 days so no matter what you are looking for the chances are you can find it here.
Accommodation is included with the cost as is the rental of your bike, which takes the pressure of organizing off of you. Carrying around all that equipment in your luggage can be tricky as well so if you want to travel light you can also rent your helmet, leathers or most other items you may need. Once you have reserved and booked your spot you just need to show up, meet your group and have a good time!
Another big bonus to traveling with an organized tour group is that they offer full assistance should you encounter any mechanical difficulties on your journey! That’s a big relief when you are biking through the Atacama Desert and not sure where the nearest mechanic is. All tours are led by a guide that has mechanical experience and on long journeys, a support vehicle carries a spare bike in case of a mechanical emergency. Breathe a little easier knowing you won’t get stranded on the side of the road.
Who can go on a tour?
Anyone! As long as you have a valid motorcycle license and are healthy enough to drive. You do need a Valid passport to enter Chile and Medical Insurance, which is obligatory if you are planning on taking a guided tour with Ride-Chile or any other credible guided tour.
How long can I stay in Chile?

If you lose your visa you can replace it at most police stations but obviously save yourself the stress and keep it somewhere safe.
