The Heart of Idaho ADV ride is loop tour starting and ending in Boise, Idaho and inspired by the Backcountry Discovery Routes movement. MotoDiscovery has selected numerous segments of the official IDBDR route, combined spectacularly (and curvy!) scenic tarmac sections. We've created a unique journey with balance and mile after mile of riding pleasures. Prior off-pavement riding experience is required. This is an adventure riding experience that calls on flexibility and ability to adjust to unforeseen conditions related to weather and environment. 

This ride is well suited for dual-sport/adventure motorcycles in the 400-1250cc range. Should you ride (or would like to rent) one of the larger ADV designed bikes (such as the Honda Africa Twin CRF1000L) it would be necessary to have the skills and experience to manage the performance and physical size of these machines. We recommend attending a MotoDiscovery Rider Training Tour if you would like to gain additional off-road skill and confidence.

ITINERARY DISCLOSURE: the itinerary is likely to change from tour to tour due to weather conditions, the condition of mountain passes, forest fire activity, logging, and our ongoing research and route development. Itineraries are subject to change at any time without prior notice.


  • Starts and ends in Boise, Idaho. Idaho International Airport offers many direct flights from major cites, allowing  fly-and-ride convenience. 
  • Endless Twisty Roads. You have to ride it to believe it. Idaho has some of the most remarkable twisty tarmac roads in the country that follow beautiful massive rivers such as the Salmon, Clearwater and, the Lochsa Rivers.  
  • The Lolo Motorway. One of the main highlights of the trip, the Lolo Motorway was used by Lewis and Clard and follows the route used by the Nez Perce Indians to reach the buffalo hunting grounds of the Great Plains.
  • Tiny off-the-grid towns. Weave in and out of civilization on the very remote IDBDR. Visit ecclectic little towns such as the small mining town of Warren, Elk City and treasures such as Burgdorf Hot Springs. 
  • Wildlife is abundant. Keep your eyes open for wolf, elk, moose, grizzly and black bears, mule deer, marmots and beaver.
  • There are no bad roads in Idaho. Paved or unpaved, you are able to chose on most days your level of challenge. If for any reason you are uncomfortable, count on the MotoDiscovery team to offer alternative riding routes that will also put a smile on your face.
  • Trip Extensions Available. Do you want to extend your riding experience after the tour? Inquire about extended available motorcycle rental and consultation.
