Foreign Travel Advice

This massive 112 day trip is one of our more popular journeys across South America as it takes in so much of the continent, including many of the really popular highlights along with a whole bunch of lesser known gems. If you would like to ride horses across the Argentinian Cordillera with the Gauchos, to trek the W Walk of Torres del Paine and to cross the wilderness of the high Altiplano, then this trip might well be the one for you.

It explores off the beaten track through Colombia, Bolivia and Argentina as well as visiting the more predictable destinations, such as Cuzco and Machu Picchu, Buenos Aires and the Salt Pans at Uyuni.

This is a trip for someone with plenty of time, who is happy to share this amazing continent with a group of likeminded travellers.

3 nights to trek in the Cordillera Blanca from Huaraz

A great experience for folk who are happy to go with the flow. A lot of miles to cover, but time to do it properly, with plenty of multi day stays in one location to balance off the driving. There are high altitudes at times and a mix of climates from the steaming jungles of the Amazon to the frozen heights of the Andes. This all makes for an immensely rewarding journey which can be challenging at times.

Spend 3 nights at our fantastic Ecuadorian ecolodge taking in many activities such as boat trips on the Napo River visits to local communities and treks through the jungle to some spectacular waterfalls and bat caves!
