Looking to adventure around the world with a Motorcycle tour group? Look no further!

Our guided motorcycle tours are the experience of a lifetime, crossing continents to explore to some of the most remote and picturesque places in the world.

We offer you the chance to ride in incredible destinations with a guide and a group of like-minded travellers while still having the freedom to ride at your own pace. From off-road motorcycle adventure tours in Australia to 100 day expeditions crossing Europe and Russia, our tours have a sense of genuine adventure and unique spirit that have made them incredibly popular over the last 15+ years.

Only Compass Expeditions is trusted by Charley Boorman to run his tours in Africa and Australia and by ten times Dakar rider Simon Pavey to facilitate his off-road training and tours in Australia. National Geographic featured our Patagonia Explorer in the top 50 tours of a lifetime, still the only motorcycle tour company to ever make that most prestigious list!

Our award winning Beyond Siberia & Beyond Sahara documentaries have aired in over 50 countries across 70 networks, including Discovery Channel and National Geographic. Our ongoing success is not luck but a continuing commitment to providing incredible, sometimes life changing, always life affirming ride experiences.

When riding with Compass Expeditions, we’re striving to give you the most inclusive ride experience possible. This means more iconic sights, city guides, authentic cuisine, superb accommodation and unique off-bike excursions. We’re not just taking you on a ride, we’re making it a motorcycle touring travel experience never to be forgotten.
