A true expedition by nature of its long duration and some of the remote places we visit. Expect a degree of hardship, some long drives on rough roads, camping and cooking in extremes of climate, but in the process you will discover the real South America and meet people you would never otherwise encounter.
Travelling in our purpose-built expedition vehicle, this trip takes in all the highlights! Visit the Amazon Jungle in Ecuador and the beaches of Northern Peru. You'll follow the Andes Mountain Range through Peru, visiting the charming colonial cities of Cusco and Arequipa, as well as trekking the ancient Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. The high altitude continues through Bolivia, where after La Paz you'll head to the stunning Salar de Uyuni. Argentina is always a favourite with its world famous steak and red wine, and when the truck reaches Patagonia, you'll be awed at the snow-capped mountains and glaciers. Chile also brings more volcanoes, and Tierra del Fuego National Park, before you head up the East Coast to the Tango capital of Argentina, Buenos Aires. Iguazu Falls is next on the list, both the Argentinean and Brazilian sides, before you venture to the hot, sticky Pantanal in search of anaconda and capybara. Ending in Rio for the biggest party in the world, Rio Carnival, tops off this incredible adventure like nothing else could.
