More and more people wish to extend their horizon above the Scandinavian countries and to combine their passion for motorbiking with fantastic nature beyond the established tourist destinations. An adventure vacation that challenges you and gives you permanent memories is what attracts people. To be able to do this together with like-minded people is what Indian Adventures strive to provide.

Indian Adventures was founded when Knut de Presno and Jim Lindquist were on a motorbike tour on high altitude in the Himalayas, autumn 2006. The idea of Indian Adventures was born. The idea to share these adventures and experiences with others. Indian Adventures was founded with a vision to give other motorcyclists the most exciting and eventful moment in life.
