Off-the-beaten-track Argentina: Remote Puna Adventure

Feeling as removed and remote as the wilderness of Antarctica, the Puna de Atacama is a vast, other-worldly, arid landscape of extremes. On your six-day, guided expeditionary road trip you will be almost alone in high altitude desert mountain scenery.

Self-drive Ecuador: Back road of the Andes

An exhilarating adventure exploring the cloud forests of Ecuador’s Andean foothills on the fringe of the Amazon basin. Winding its way south parallel with the Andean spine is Route 45, a road which connects Quito to many otherwise inaccessible destinations.

Argentina Wildlife: Tropical wetlands and Patagonia

The unique locations of the Iberá wetlands and Bahía Bustamente are truly remote, in areas of little infrastructure. Bahia Bustamante offers a taste of authentic Patagonia in one of Argentina’s long- forgotten corners. The area is rich in seabirds and other marine life whilst Iberá’s wetlands afford incredible aquatic wildlife viewing opportunities.
