Journey Highlights

An unforgettable journey through some of South America’s most stunning and untouched

landscapes. This off the beaten track adventure combines the dramatic scenes of northern Chile, the lunar-like terrain of the Bolivian salt flats and the remarkable high altitude lake of Titicaca. Outdoor exploration and stargazing awaits in the world’s driest desert - the mighty Atacama. Spot wildlife as you traverse the vast landscapes of the Eduardo Abaroa Andean Fauna National Park by 4WD and tour the seemingly endless Uyuni salt flats discovering cactus islands and a dormant volcano along the way. Engage with traditional Aymaran people of the altiplano and learn about their floating reed island homes. Beginning in Santiago, Chile and ending in Puno, Peru this journey is complete with unique accommodation and expert local guiding.
