Why?

 

We believe that a motorcycle is the perfect companion when it comes to travel and adventure. It gives you freedom and independence. It transforms the landscape into your playground and opens up the door to a whole new world of experiences otherwise unreachable.

Unfortunately, finding affordable and functional motorcycle touring can be a challenge.

On the one side, price and technical skill for traditional high-cc touring is often too restrictive to consider a journey for many people.

On the other, local rental solutions may lack the adequate solutions for touring such as insurance, support, gear or even the type of vehicle itself.

This leaves a lot of people missing out on a lot of amazing riding, forget about having a good looking, retro ride.

 

Our hospitality expertise combined with our passion for travel and motorcycles was the perfect match for Colombia, so we dreamt up a solution combining both form and function.

Odyssey Motorcycle Colombia is an affordable, responsible and kick ass custom motorcycle rental company offering quality service to riders in search of an authentic  adventure in Latin America’s hidden paradise.

About us

 

Odyssey was founded by two young graduates from the renowned Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne in Switzerland.

 

After discovering how exceptionally immersive and rewarding motorcycle travel is during personal journeys in South East Asia, South America and Europe, we wanted to share this exceptional way of exploring in a novel way.

 

We are also very enthusiastic about the renaissance Colombia is currently undergoing and the opportunities for positive impact it brings. Like a South American fall of the Berlin Wall, something amazing is happening and we're thrilled to be a part of it !

Social Responsability

Colombia’s land and culture has conquered our hearts and we want to see it thrive. Its past resonates in our authentic indigenous patterns and it’s future shines in our commitment to sustainability through permaculture and technology.

We care for Pacha Mama and all of her inhabitants. We are also aware that for now motorcycles aren’t the most sustainable thing around. For those reasons and others, we have decided to not only offset our carbon impact but also raise awareness and make a difference by founding and investing in various sustainable and innovative projects.

Permaculture

We have co-founded a permaculture project in Santa Elena on the outskirts of Medellin. Alongside with Rango Hostel Boutique and some local sustainability enthusiasts we are creating a 100% self sustaining Finca (water, electricity, waste and food) while being a showcase for various innovative solutions.

 

We strongly believe that permaculture is an essential part of the solution to many of our problems as a society, so we're thrilled to be a part of this and spread the awesomeness to travelers and locals alike.

 

The Finca is for rent at a discount for Odyssey riders.

Innovation

We also believe that another key to positive change is desirable innovation. That’s why we’re working on a unique electric motorcycle concept in partnership with Colombian company Elektrika to bring the future of two wheels into the present, Elon Musk style.

Our Products

All our gear and apparel is exclusively produced by small Colombian businesses in the most responsible way possible, sourcing locally and organically. Our signature Chibcha and Calima patterns as seen on our motorcycles, helmets and t-shirts are a tribute to indigenous cultures throughout Colombia, found in various archeological sites across the country.

Your Contribution

We like to think that our riders are buena gente, which is why we’re giving you the opportunity to earn free extra riding days and discounts by volunteering and showing some love to Colombia and its beautiful people.
