Who’s going on this trip
We start in the north of the continent where our flights meet
Part of the Colombia tour will include Medellin and the surrounding area. Its perfect climate gives it its nickname – the City of Eternal Spring. It has enough activities to fill weeks on end: microbreweries, museums, walking tours, parks, street art, food tours and markets, and incredible nightlife where we can salsa dance the night away... or try to anyway.
Cali is known by the rest of Colombia as the "Rumba Capital" and by the world as the "Salsa Capital", thanks to its characteristic street parties and dance.
We enter Ecuador through the Andean city of Quito, which lies on the equator. There are also multiple excursions from there.
The town is known for two things: naturally heated thermal baths – the namesake of Baños, Ecuador – and adventure sports! Nearby Baños, you’ll find mountains, rivers, waterfalls, and hot springs. Oh, and did I mention there’s a swing over the edge of a cliff?
Have a local friend here who can show us around the area. There are also surf spots for surfers out there ;) And nearby is Montanita, known for its beach and lively bars. There we can relax and kick back, because we deserve it ;)
Going south in Peru and through the Gastronomy Capital of the Americas
Formerly the capital of the Inca Empire, there are plenty of ruins to discover in & around the city, and multiple day trip destinations like Machu Picchu, the rainbow mountain, etc.
We hike the Inca Trail for 4 days to reach the infamous Machu Picchu ruined city, one of the 'new' seven wonders of the world
We cross to Bolivia through Titicaca lake
First stop in Bolivia is La Paz, where there are many attractions in the area including Yungas Death Road, Valle de la Luna, Tiwanaku and some hikes
Uyuni Salt Flat
I bet you've seen a ton of pictures of this place before
The Atacama Desert is well-known for being a great spot for stargazing, astrological research and photography. There are no cities or towns nearby which makes for the perfect spot to see millions of stars.
We continue going south through Chile
We start making our way east through Argentina. Maybe we learn to dance some tango?
We cross from Argentina to Uruguay by boat and continue north
We pass by Paraguay and see what it has to offer
Then head east to the coast and enter Brazil.
Rio de Janeiro
Needs no introduction, one of the most beautiful cities in the world :)
One of the world's largest parties, Carnaval is virtually synonymous with Brazil. Whatever you do, prepare yourself for sleepless nights, an ample dose of caipirinhas, samba and joyful crowds.
We fly to the Amazonas and go on excursions in the rainforest
