Are you crazy enough for the Peru Monkey Run?


Every once in a while, the most outrageously fun, chaotic, breathtakingly ridiculous adventure comes along. Today is one of those days. We’re delighted to bring you the Peru Monkey Run - a week-long journey from the Andes Mountains to the Amazon Rainforest… on a child's motorbike!

While in many Life of Riley experiences you’ll be pampered and looked after, the brilliantly crazy guys behind Peru Monkey Run have a different take - they will spend a day teaching you how to ride and fix your rollerskate-sized motorcycle, provide a start line high in the Peruvian mountains and a finish line in the jungle (or vice versa) and send you off on your merry way. Everything else in between, including accommodation and your route, is up to you!

Why on earth would I do that?


Three words: Danger equals fun!


With absolutely no backup, support, guides, medics or mechanics, you'll be forced to look after yourself and take ownership in a way you never have before. If you survive and make it across the finish line - you’ll have some incredible memories and great stories to tell when you get home! 


After a launch party to kill half your brain in Ayacucho, you and your highly unreliable, 90cc monkey bike will navigate your own route to Atalaya. Up amongst the clouds, you’ll traverse dubious mountain passes and cliff edges. Under stunning azure blue skies, you’ll breathe the crisp mountain air and experience the freedom of a condor before definitely getting stuck in clay-red jungle mud.

You clearly need to be a little bonkers to sign up for this amazing adventure but it's clearly a life-changing experience and everywhere you go, through Peruvian villages and Amazonian tribal land, you’ll “spread a wave of joy and happiness in your wake as everyone behind you bursts out laughing.” 


In short:


  • Ride from the Andes to the Amazon...
  • On a motorbike the size of a rollerskate
  • You have to be insane (I'll see you there)
  • Spread laughter, joy, and live life to the max
  • Prove "Danger" is your middle name on the Peru Monkey Run!
