Dirt Bike Vacation!?
Love dirt bikes? Love adventure? Love vacations? Then this Moto Excursion in Peru may just be the perfect destination for you. Now you can ride through the mountains of Peru on your vacation!
Our guide Scott is high energy and focused on providing the best experience and service available. Scott also has 20 years of riding experience which includes a 6th place finish in the 2007 Baja 1000 (Open Pro Class 22). His passion is enduro and he enjoys pushing other riders to improve and stretch their comfort zones a bit.
With high energy, English speaking adventure guides, you and your group will be taken to the limit on tight trails, steep ridges and hill climbs on some of the gnarliest terrain in Peru.
Hop on one of the many Honda CRF 450Xs and get ready for the adventure of your lifetime. These bikes are strategically maintained and gone over after every ride.
Rides are geared more toward the intermediate to pro skill level, but we do also offer beginner rides as well. I have been riding and racing dirt bikes my whole life, but nothing has compared even close to this trip. Lessons are available for first timers while experts will be treated to highly technical terrain.
Ride until you’re tired. It’s your call! You have the option to ride just one day or ride a month! Our guides will be happy to ride with you for weeks on end exploring something new daily. One thing is for sure though, you won’t be disappointed. There’s nothing like it!
Our guides have a crazy passion for dirt bikes, and a crazy passion to serve. We combine these two passions to support specific needs in the surrounding areas of Cusco and the places where we ride. Our guides’ business model provides for 100% of profits to be directed to The Altivas Canas Children’s Project on the edge of Cusco. With our model, any type of business will suffice, but we love dirt bikes, adventure, and most importantly helping those in need.
We have committed 100% of the profits from the first year to help build a facility for the Altivas Canas Project. Years 2-5 will be designated to develop an endowment fund that will provide sufficient income for the life of the project and beyond. True sustainability is the key.
The Altivas Canas Children’s Project is a grass roots mission that reaches out to children in the poverty stricken area of Altivas Canas. It was started 11 years ago by a single mother of three children. She could not afford to feed her kids, nor could she leave them alone to work. Quintina felt called to do something about it. She went throughout her poor neighborhood in search of other single mothers that were in the same situation. She found a handful of them. She then invited the children of the other mothers to come to her home in order to help raise the kids in a healthy home environment. The other mothers were then able to go out and work, which began to provide some support for Quintina’s work. Thus, the grass roots of the mission.
The mission is currently reaching 25-30 kids daily in the afternoon program and another 10 younger kids during a morning program. At the end of the day, the kids have their homework done, have been fed a nutritious meal, get to experience social interaction and enjoy some physical activities. They return home each evening where they can spend quality time with their mothers who have been working hard all day.
The limitation with the current project is space, but we hope to provide enough support to get the space needed. Quintina has a dream of reaching more children, but without more space, her humble home has just not been enough space. She has recently purchased the neighboring property and has begun construction of a facility. She is well vested in the project and is committed to long term success of the project. Everyone who decides to experience this great trip will be helping Quintina and the Altivas Canas Children’s Project to positively impact the lives of these amazing children. If you are looking to do a moto trip any time soon, ride for a cause with Inclusive Excursions in Peru.

For those who are looking forward to spring break, it’s a time to be free from the confines of the classroom and the face of the computer. Weather your Skiing in the Alps or exploring the beaches, it is always wise to assess the situation before making decisions. Before you adventure away though, it’s always important to keep safety in mind. Spring Break safety is important when setting off on your adventure… get wild, but be smart. Time for an exciting week ahead.
We ourselves like to be spontaneous with our adventures, but while adventure does often involve risk, make sure your choices are well-planned. Jumping from balcony to balcony on spring break often makes the news. Unfortunately though, this is usually to note a fatality, and we don’t want that to be you! Even the best of adventurers use safety equipment. Ropes and harnesses are purposeful–to keep you safe and alive. Use them on the slabs, but hold off from those balcony jumps.
Looking to dive into unknown waters? That sure will be fun, and what a photo opp! Please first consider though the underwater dangers that can bite you. Are there rocks or even crocs? Read signs and pay attention.
Speaking of taking pictures…beware of selfie dangers. Don’t get too close to the edge of that cliff or the mouth of that snake. Be aware of what’s around. No selfie is worth your life.
Many sites offer safety information while traveling, but perhaps one of the most important is to maintain the buddy system wherever you go. Stay accounted for and travel with a buddy. From hotel reservations to outdoor locations, always let a friend or family member know where you are going. Save social media updates for once you’re home…(You’re there to enjoy the moment after all). Keep your cell phones charged and carry a portable charger.
In terms of hotels, ask for a business card with the hotel address and number. When traveling abroad where language may be a barrier, you can hand the taxi driver the card with the address.
Emergency services such as 911 are not available in all countries. Plan ahead. Before you travel, research your destination for similar services and store them in your phone.
With Spring Break around the corner and fun-filled adventures planned, keep safety a priority, so that you can live to tell the crazy adventure experiences you had. We advise all of our adventure clients to purchase travel insurance. You never think it will happen until it happens. Be prepared.
Be smart. Be aware. Be safe. And most importantly, be adventurous! Enjoy Spring Break.

Dreaming of whitewater rafting, rock climbing or other adventure sport but don’t know where to start? Located in Charlotte, North Carolina, the USNWC has created an environment where you can safely learn and practice skills in outdoor recreation before actually going into the wilds.
Dedicated to promoting an outdoor lifestyle, with 1,300 acres, the US National Whitewater Center has artistically designed the land to meet the needs of a range of enthusiasts. Along with whitewater rafting, guests may enjoy kayaking, flatwater kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, rock climbing, ropes courses, canopy tours, team building activities and mountain biking. Mountain bikers have an option of 40+ wooded trails to explore, while other sports are contained to a carefully maintained and organized setting where safety is always a priority.
The USNWC not only offers a wide range of outdoor sports, but also provides opportunities to learn and practice skills. Along with techniques, leadership and communication skills are also encouraged and implemented with specialized adventure instruction for all ages and levels. The Whitewater Race Series held at the USNWC also encourages competition for many sports from mountain biking, kayaking to triathlons.
A family-oriented environment wouldn’t be complete without relaxation and play. Outdoor festivals are held throughout the year with music, food and vendors. Also the Whitewater Race Series holds competition for many sports from mountain biking, kayaking to triathlons.
A great place to learn a new skill or to spend the day, the USNWC is a terrific destination in Charlotte, North Carolina. As they say on their site, “ the USNWC empowers the guests to play, relax and learn outside.” Highly recommended, this is a must-do experience.
