"Motor2Travel offers cultural and adventurous motorbike tours off the beaten track. Our trips worldwide are the ideal blend of riding a motorcycle and getting to know a country and its culture."
We offer guided motorcycle tours to explore the highlights and the back roads. An experienced tour guide as well as a mechanic and support-car will travel with the group. The daily stages are not too long, so we have enough time to enjoy the motorcycle ride through beautiful surroundings, as well as take opportunities to immerse ourselves in foreign cultures and learn from them.
Our tours aren't designed for dual-sport or motocross fanatics. We aim to offer trips for people that love to ride with variety in our programming by altering between paved roads and smaller tracks in the heartland. In addition to our guided tours we also organize self-guided motorcycle tours, bike-rentals and tailor made guided or self-ride tours.

Her two biggest passions are motorcycling and exploring foreign countries. She now works as a journalist for various magazines and publishes reports from the countries she travels to. Brita has been to Asia and Africa several times, but her favorite continent is Central and South America. She was particularly impressed by Colombia, where she lived and worked for a while in the early 90s. Since then, Brita has been returning to the northernmost country in South America and exploring different areas whenever possible, preferably, of course, by motorcycle.
For Motor2Travel she scouted a Caribbean tour and Andean tour,which she will also lead as our tour guide. It is important to Brita not only to show travelers the scenic beauty, but also to introduce the peculiarities of the culture of the locals.
The word "Wickrama"means "adventure" in English and with that, everything has been said. Growing up in Sri Lanka shaped the way Dylan travels today: he finds the most beautiful experiences where the challenge is along the way. Even today, with creativity, talent for improvisation, optimism and without a guide, he discovers the hospitality of the world. Before his big trip on a motorbike around the world, his life was shaped by being on the road: after a childhood in Sri Lanka, he studied in England as a young adult and from there, he found his way to Switzerland.
In 2010 he decided to sell his car-garage, which he had built from the ground up in tranquil Glarus, Switzerland in six years time. He decided to invest everything he had into the adventure of a lifetime. Less than three months later, Bruce, his motorcycle, was loaded up and his lone journey started. The only plan: to ride around the world. "I never thought that my trip would inspire so many people, it was overwhelming to see the reactions when I shared my adventures and experiences." In 2014 Dylan returned to Switzerland, and after two more or less sedentary years, the adventure continues: For the second time in his life Dylan has broken down his tents and from April 2016 Dylan and Martina now live, work and travel in their Volkswagen Van "Foxy". From 2018 on, Dylan guides our 3-week motorcycle tour in Sri Lanka.
Out of interest in Native American people, Lars made long journeys through the western United States and Central America. He roamed another year in parts of South America and ended up in Peru. Here he lost his heart, learned Spanish and married a Peruvian beauty. He then accompanied many trips for several Dutch Travel Agencies from his new home.
Due to his extensive knowledge of the country, the language and the routes, he is the ideal companion for our motorcycle trips through Peru. Lars bought his own motorbikes that are used for our trips. With his no-nonsense mentality he likes to share his knowledge about South America. He guides, among other things, the trips in Peru and Patagonia.
