Pan American between Anchorage and Ushuaia - NEW!

Overlanding is a fantastic way to experience the traveller's paradise of the Americas! We have been the world's leading overland operator for decades, so take advantage of our years of experience and come with us as we include all the must-see attractions as well as heading into the wilds, well away from the usual tourist trail. We begin our journey in the Alaskan town of Anchorage, and wind our way through the wilds of Alaska and the forest-covered slopes of Canada's mountain country. We will learn about the local cultures and minig history, camp out in the wilderness, trek through the breathtaking landscapes, forests and glaciers, and have the chance to enjoy some exhilarating outdoor activities in some of the world's best National Parks such as Denali, Jasper and Banff. From the glittering city of Banff, we journey through the stunning western USA along the famous Rocky Mountains, to the awe-inspiring Grand Canyon, the geothermal geysers of Yellowstone, the red columns of Monument Valley in Utah, and through the incredible deserts of Arizona en route to Mexico. This scenic and active journey takes us to Mexico's buzzing capital. From the artistic Mexico City, we journey through some of Central America's greatest highlights including Mexico's incredible Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza, the tropical paradise of Caye Caulker in Belize, the ruined city of Tikal and the colourful markets of Chichicastenango in Guatemala. From the charming colonial town of Antigua, we overland through the magnificent highlights of El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua, including their Mayan ruins, stunning beaches, wonderful towns, and spectacular volcanic scenery. We then head to Costa Rica to explore the forests and beaches there before arriving in Panama and its thriving capital. After a short flight to the incredible colonial town of Cartagena on the Caribbean coast, we explore some of Colombia's best highlights, such as the beautiful beaches of Tayrona National Park, the adventure capital of San Gil and the stunning historic town of Villa de Leyva, before crossing into Ecuador and arriving at its buzzing capital of Quito. From Quito we explore the stunning jungles, hills and towns of Ecuador and then head down to the coast and the idyllic beaches of Punta Sal in northern Peru. We then head south through Peru's deserts to the ruined Moche city of Chan Chan, then climb up to the spectacular Andean town of Huaraz, before heading to the chaotic capital of Lima. From Lima we continue down the coast to the magical dunes of Huacachina, and then overland to the mysterious Nazca Lines. We'll then climb up into the highlands to visit the colonial city of Arequipa and the breathtaking Colca Canyon, before staying at a local Quechua village stay on our way to the phenomenal city of Cuzco. Cuzco is our base for one of South America's best highlights, the Inca Trails and a visit to the legendary ruined city of Machu Picchu. After Cuzco, we will head south to the serene shores of Lake Titicaca and its sacred Inca island of Isla del Sol, and then move on to the thriving Bolivian city of La Paz. Heading south from La Paz, we visit our local community stay in Livichuco and the famous mining town of Potosí, before arriving in one of the continent's most spectacular natural wonders - the phenomenal salt flats of Salar de Uyuni. From here we will overland across the other-worldly scenery of the Bolivian Altiplano into the incredible Atacama Deserts of Chile, and then cross the Andes into the beautiful arid regions of Argentina and the wonderful town of Salta. We will make our way south through the wine regions and highlands of northwest Argentina before arriving at a very special highlight of this trip - our unique estancia stay for two days of horse riding on an idyllic country ranch. From here we make our way to the spectacular town of Mendoza, under the shadow of the Andes' highest mountains, before finally crossing the Andes again to arrive in the Chilean capital of Santiago. We will continue south from Santiago into the Chilean and Argentinian Lake District to enjoy the wealth of optional activities and beautiful scenery in Pucon and Barlioche. We will then journey down the spectacular Carretera Austral to arrive in the fabled land of Patagonia, famous for its hauntingly desolate scenery, its huge glaciers near El Calafate, the phenomenal mountain scenery of El Chaltén and Torres del Paine, and the chance to get out trekking, climbing and horse riding! We will then arrive in the remote outpost of Ushuaia, the most southern town in the world. Join us on this unforgettable overlanding experience through the Americas!
