A true wilderness adventure, this journey explores one of the world’s most dramatic and ethereally beautiful mountain ranges: the Andes. Setting off from cosmopolitan Buenos Aires, you head northwest to the cultured colonial city of Salta below the foothills of the Andes. Ascend a lonely, precipitous and sinuous cactus-dotted road which crosses the icy range into Chile. Traverse the Atacama desert, the driest on earth, past snow-capped volcanoes and across shimmering salt flats into Bolivia. 

Skirting the sapphire waters of Lake Titicaca, you cross the chilly plains of the altiplano before descending into the fertile valleys surrounding the ancient Inca capital of Cusco, visiting traditional adobe villages and open air markets. The climax to this epic journey is the sight of the spectacular Inca ruins of Machu Picchu, crouching on an Andean mountain saddle.

What our clients say

97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.

A fantastic trip that includes highlight after highlight - from natural beauty to historical ruins. Lots of travelling but always jaw dropping views through the window. Highlights of the trip were Uyuni Salt Flats, Atacama Desert and Lagunas (flamingos so close you could touch them) and a return to Machu Pichu after 25 years. Our extension to Easter Island was a fantastic experience.
