Foreign Travel Advice

You might call this trip Patagonia Plus. Patagonia plus the amazing Bolivian and Chilean Altiplano, Northern Argentina and, of course, Peru. That really is a pretty big journey. Criss-crossing the Andes, traversing the high plateau with its flamingo studded lakes and the vast Uyuni Salt Pans, we will explore off the beaten track as well as the more usual highlights.

Of course, this trip will spend plenty of time exploring the Urubamba Valley, Cuzco and trekking to Machu Picchu on the Inca Trail, but for many of our travellers, it's activities like riding across the Argentinian cordillera with the gauchos or hiking the Wild Andes Trek that allows them to experience the real South America.

Yes, it's a journey across Patagonia, with its plethora of national parks, its wildlife and its trekking. Torres del Paine, Fitzroy, the Moreno Glacier, Tierra del Fuego and more; there is so many opportunities to climb, trek, ride horses or white water raft.
