Our Big Bolivian Jeep Adventure

Our ‘Bolivia Jeep Adventure’ is an exciting and exhilarating trip which offers an opportunity to drive a modern 4x4 jeep on the world’s largest salt flats and the world’s most dangerous road.

Our Big Colombian Recce Adventure

We’ve recently returned from our Big Colombian Recce Adventure and what a fantastic trip it was! We absolutely loved this crazy and colourful country and we’re excited about running our first official Colombia Motorbike Adventure in summer 2016.

We started our adventure from Cali and we spent our first few riding days on the never ending twisty roads of the spectacular Andes Mountains, before we headed down to the Caribbean beaches and UNESCO World Heritage city of Cartagena. Following a well deserved day off from riding we jumped back on the bikes to head south towards the vibrant city of Medellin which is located in the Aburra Valley in the heart of the Andes, and then we made our way back to Cali - the salsa capital of the world.

5 Reasons Why We Love Burma


Often referred to as ‘The Golden Land’, Burma is one of the most mysterious and undiscovered countries in the world. Having only recently opened its borders to tourists, this magical country is on the cusp of great change and we urge you to visit Burma now before everyone else goes.

We ran our first ‘Burma Motorcycle Adventure’ in January 2015 and it was a great success.  We secured the necessary government permissions, permits and guides to allow us to ride in this very secretive country and we spent 2 weeks visiting the ancient temples and pagodas of Mandalay, Bagan and Inle Lake.

We were all completely enchanted by Burma and we’re extremely excited about returning to this incredible country in 2016. Here are 5 reasons why The Big Adventure Company loves Burma.
