Foreign Travel Advice

There are very few trips around that will allow you to travel the whole, 'Spine of the Andes', from one end of South America to the other but that is exactly what this journey does. Starting in Cartagena or Ushuaia, we criss-cross the Andes, through Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina.

Along the way we will visit all of the iconic sites, such as Machu Picchu and the Salt Flats of Bolivia, but we will also get you way off the beaten track travelling across the high Altiplano and riding horses with Argentinian Gauchos. We will explore the back roads of Bolivia and Patagonia where there will be trekking, biking, riding, rafting and kayaking to provide plenty of physical activity.

You will explore some of South America's most stunning and diverse landscapes, including the Ecuadorian Amazon, Colombia's Cocora Valley and Torres del Paine NP, as well as the less visited gems such as. the Atacama desert and the Caraterra Austral.
