Here we are, at the beginning of the year, in the middle of a challenging Dakar and surely wondering where this year will take us! Compass Expeditions are definitely doing their utmost to keep that adrenaline inside of us going 🙂 Last year was quite a successful year for this company and this year they’re trying to organise more and more tours that will leave us, like the expression says, with our mouths open! 🙂
I’m sure you’ve all heard about Simon Pavey, one of the Dakar riders! Simon didn’t stop his passion to racing but is today also the of Off Road Skills rider training in Australia! Simon, together with his son Llewelyn, in collaboration with Compass Expeditions,, will be conducting another training course this November in Tasmania! For more details you can contact us, on firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll answer to all your question!
One of their most exciting tours this year will be the Dakar territory! Yeah, Compass Expeditions will be organising a motorcycle tour going through parts of the Dakar. The tour will make you explore the beauty of South America, with some great scenery, high mountain passes, dry river beds and desert dunes! Tours will individually touch base with Argentina, Chile and Bolivia! Surely a must for every rider, especially those who love the enduro style bikes! It’s a chance of a lifetime to have a glance at the beauty these places has to offer! The riders of the Dakar are not as lucky as you can be as they’ll be in these places with loads of tension and surely won’t appreciate the beauty around them! Who knows, maybe you’ll meet up with one of these riders throughout these tours too! 😉
One of the tours will be that of a 16 day one from Atacama to Machu Picchu, from the 1st till the 16th April! It will be interesting to personally experience the Uyuni Salt Flats, La Paz, Atacama Desert, Potosi, Lake Titacaca and obviously the famoun Machu Picchu! There’s still a couple of places left for this tour so make sure you book your place now before it’s too late!
Another tour, which will start on the 29th September and last for 23 days will be the Andean Discovery! For those wishing that little bit extra, one can take an optional extension into Peru! Here one will be able to enjoy another part of the Dakar rally, such as again La Paz & Uyuni but will also include Salta, Mendoza and the Lake District of Chile / Argentina! Surely a tour not to miss! For those wishing more adrenaline the optional Peru to La Paz will be idea. This will cover Cuzco, Lake Titicaca, Machu Picchu and the Death Road in Bolivia! This part, which will then make this tour a month long one! This extension will be mainly based on culture and history!
