Welcome to Highlux Photography

This is the website of Mark Watson/Highluxphoto and the home of Mark and Hana’s bikepacking adventures in the Americas.  

We blog about every section of our ride and provide GPX tracks for the highlights we’ve discovered.
Read the latest posts below.

It’s good to give back, and we enjoy sharing what we’ve learned during two and a half years on the road on our bikes. 


Planning an Andes cycle tour? We’ve been riding in the Andes for a year now and reckon we’ve got the list pretty fine tuned. 

See the gear list and how we pack.


A network of peaceful rural and backcountry roads traverse Colombia, crossing Andean passes, jungle clad hills, riverine lowlands and everything in between.

Read route highlights and download a GPX complete with POIs.


In our minds the journey is the destination, and we like to find the most continually interesting routes we can.

Here’s how we do it.
