The Compass Expeditions November 2019 Newsletter

New, new ,new ,new ,new!

We have so many new things to tell you about this month that I can’t stop typing the word.

The big news is the launch of our new 100-day epic South American adventure The Ultimate South America Expedition!

As the name suggests this is the “Ultimate” way to truly experience the best of the South American continent on a motorcycle.

We also will introduce our new Compass Expeditions Tour App this month which will put your tour in your pocket and let you instantly access all of the details for your trip with just a tap or two.

There is still opportunity to join our new Safari Africa ride and wildlife experience in May 2020 and reports are coming in from the first recently completed Wild Patagonia tour.

Another success!

A tour in your pocket – the new Compass Expeditions App

Your Compass Expeditions tour in your pocket!

We are very excited to announce that Compass Expeditions will be trialling a new innovation in tour communication, information and convenience this year.

The Compass Expeditions Tour App will be offered on the January and February Patagonia Explorer tours, then rolled out to our other tours throughout next year.

The app is a leap forward as it puts all of the information that you need regarding your Compass Expeditions tour conveniently in the palm of your hand.

Developed in conjunction with Tineri, the app contains your itinerary, destination information, maps, a group chat function, tour and airport transfer vouchers, plus much more and we see it replacing a lot of printed material and other systems that we currently use, now all on your mobile device.

We find that if you come armed with some information and know a little of what to expect from a tour, it can only improve your ride experience.  So, when you are sent the log in details for the app on your next tour, please take the time to explore Tineri.  It’s full of useful information, including website links for further follow up.  We trust it will give you a greater insight into the regions that we ride through, the sights you will be seeing as well as assist in planning and organizing for your tour and keeping in touch before, during and after the trip.

Another First for Compass Expeditions – Safari Africa

May 2020 will see another first of it’s kind tour departure for Compass Expeditions, this time in Africa.

The Safari  Africa tour is designed for those who want to witness the best wildlife viewing experiences that South Africa and Namibia have to offer as well as amazing lodges, sensational dining and of course the incredible riding that only Africa can provide.

Over 14 wonderful days we will visit renowned National Parks and award-winning game reserves, experience the world’s oldest desert and visit towering mountains of sand that glow red at sunrise. We will ride breathtaking coastal roads that hug the cliffs above the shoreline and meet cultures that defy belief because they are so removed from our own. If remote empty tracks, endless star laden skies, incredible wildlife experiences and a touch of luxury sound like your adventure then head to the tour webpage and secure your place on this, the first, Safari Africa with Compass Expeditions.

Wildly Successful In Patagonia

Another new tour and another great success by all reports.

Images and testimonials are rolling in from happy riders who have just completed our first 15-day Wild Patagonia tour in Chile and Argentina.

Compass Expeditions regulars Pam and Walt sent through some wonderful photos included in the video below and Pam says:

“Let me tell you that this is the best scenery we have ever experienced. Today was simply stunning!

All the tours are different, and have their own character, but Wild Patagonia is definitely wild, and gets more and more stunning the further south you go.”

Taking a look at their shots along with those sent through from tour leader JC and our ever-ready support driver Eddy, it is hard to argue.

Bookings are open for the November 2020 Wild Patagonia tour and it is filling fast.
