You will visit Cahuachi Pyramids, Huanchaco, Uyuni and 51 other destinations in 7 different countries. Trans Andean & Patagonian Wanderer is a group tour which will include accommodation, transport, meals and others. See below for further details.

There are very few trips around that will allow you to travel the whole, 'Spine of the Andes', from one end of South America to the other but that is exactly what this journey does. Starting in Cartagena or Ushuaia, we criss-cross the Andes, through Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina.

Along the way we will visit all of the iconic sites, such as Machu Picchu and the Salt Flats of Bolivia, but we will also get you way off the beaten track travelling across the high Altiplano and riding horses with Argentinian Gauchos. We will explore the back roads of Bolivia and Patagonia where there will be trekking, biking, riding, rafting and kayaking to provide plenty of physical activity.

You will explore some of South America's most stunning and diverse landscapes, including the Ecuadorian Amazon, Colombia's Cocora Valley and Torres del Paine NP, as well as the less visited gems such as. the Atacama desert and the Caraterra Austral.

“I can't speak highly enough of the crew. Jaco and Noel were the epitome of professionalism. They were well organised, proactive and extremely personable, cultivating an atmosphere of camaraderie between the passengers and the crew. They made me feel like an old friend in a short time.”

Travel Insurance

Trans Andean & Patagonian Wanderer tour requires that you have adequate and valid travel insurance covering medical and personal accidents, including repatriation costs and emergency evacuation. We recommend using World Nomads' travel insurance.


For this Trans Andean & Patagonian Wanderer tour getting the required visa(s) is the responsibility for each individual traveller, as visa requirements vary depending on your nationality. We recommend to check with your local embassies representing the countries that you are travelling to, as part of this itinerary.

Local Payment The local payment is a group fund, paid separately from the trip price on the first day of the tour. It covers everything that the group does together on the ground. This is primarily hotel accommodation and campsite fees, meals whilst camping (but not while eating in restaurants), and included activities and puts money directly back to the local community. The local payment, or kitty system, is unique to overlanding tours and provides maximum flexibility and best value on the road - you can see exactly what is being paid for, you get everything at cost price, it keeps costs competitive by leveraging group expenses and saves on administrative costs. The fund is run by the tour guide, and any excess left over at the end is returned equally to the group. Local prices are estimated in USD when we print the brochure then reviewed monthly as local costs and exchange rates vary throughout the year. It's therefore important once you book your trip to check the website regularly and just before departure for any changes to the amount.
