Journey Highlights

This journey is perfect for travellers seeking adventure by day and comfortable lodgings by night. The dramatic highlights of northern Chile are combined with the extraordinary landscapes of the Bolivian salt flats and the high altitude wonders of Lake Titicaca and Cusco. You’ll contrast ancient pre-Columbian archaeology with modern street art, savour delicious South American food and wine and observe a rich textile heritage. Photographers will find endless subject matter in extraordinary landscapes, richly coloured handicrafts, faces full of character, atmospheric city scenes and unusual
wildlife with a local escort on board from beginning to end. He is your conduit to the local cultures you experience, sharing his views and insights on the fascinating Andean countries you will visit.
