Quito to Santiago

53 days from GBP £2,150 plus local payment US$1,250 (What’s this?)

Starting in Quito, the 'City of Eternal Spring' surrounded by volcanic peaks, head into the Amazon basin and experience the rainforest and its wildlife first-hand at a unique jungle lodge, and see the instant contrast as you cross into Peru and its arid northern coast, which boasts an incongruous but vibrant surf scene.  After Lima, follow the Andes, taking in its towering peaks, ancient Incan archaeological sites including Machu Picchu, the vast altiplano of Bolivia and its eerie yet majestic Salt Flats, and its complex and mysterious indigenous cultures, finish in Santiago with the snow-capped Andes as the city's backdrop.  Throw in a few adrenaline activities, like sandboarding in the Peruvian desert, the wine country of northern Argentina, some bustling colonial towns, and cosmopolitan cities with great bars and restaurants and you've got a varied and packed adventure
