What the Riders said about New York to Mendoza 2017

"I can't thank you enough, and Iwill keep thanking you until I get home and everytime I see you."

Garry Metcalf

The Great South American
The Route
Start in Montevideo, cross Uruguay and central Argentina to Cafayate then
head north into Bolivia. Journey along the mountain road to Tilcara and
along the river from Atochi to the Uyuni Salt Flats. Then take the amazing
mountain route to the fantastic city of Sucre and onto Oruro. We skirt La
Paz, cross Lake Titicaca by small ferry barge to continue into Peru, resting
at Cuzco to visit Macchu Picchu. Refreshed, we take yet another spectacular
mountain route to Ayacucho, dropping down off the Andean alto-plano to
Pisco, Nazca and Arequipa. After San Pedro de Atacama we cross the Andes
again, headed for San Antonio de las Cobres. From here the route crosses
the Andes twice more on the most unbelievably spectacular piste mountain
passes. Once we drop down to Mendoza for a well earned Malbec we continue
south to Patagonia along some of Argentina's most beautiful Andean foothills.
Finally crossing the magnificent Chubut Valley from Trevellin to Trelew
(made famous by the Welsh settlers) we return to Montevideo where your
bike will be professionally shipped home.
