Do you plan to travel to South America and don't know where to start planning? And you would somehow even manage to shovel three weeks off for your travel dream? Perfect, then you've come to the right place! Have a look at our "Buenos Aires to Lima, Salt Flats, Lakes and Machu Picchu."

Many consider South America as a destination for the advanced traveler because the sub-continent struggles still with a negative image compared to Australia and Southeast Asia. When you hear South America, you might connect the region immediately with the international drug business, corruption, robberies, among other harmful aspects. But South America is not more dangerous than any other part of the World. It is an excellent travel alternative to typical Australia, New Zealand, or the Southeast Asian region.

If you decide to go on our "Buenos Aires to Lima: Salt Flats, Lakes and Machu Picchu," you are spoiled for choice: Bustling cities, fabulous scenery, and fantastic train journeys. The tour covers everything an adventurer's heart desires. You will discover huge contrasts during the tour traveling whenever possible on trains. At the moment, the train journeys are mainly made in Bolivia and Peru, because in the north of Argentina are not many passenger trains running at the moment.

We make the trip in a very comfortable way, having our private vehicle whenever there is no train. Nevertheless, the tour is still keeping its adventurous spirit when we travel in northern Argentina, across the Altiplano to the Lake Titicaca and on to Cusco and Machu Picchu.

The hotel accommodation is in comfortable upper-middle-class hotels so that you have time to recover from the day's activities and being fit for next days adventure.

The journey is full of contrasts. You get introduced to Argentinian Wine in Cafayate, you observe Salt extraction at the World's largest salt flat in Uyuni, you learn about the Andean Cosmovision of the indigenous population in La Paz, and of course, you discover the Incan Empire in Cusco and Machu Picchu.

The tour offers the perfect mix of travel, adventure, and learning. Contact Us for further information about the trip.
