ABOUT THE TRIP:Bordering region of Argentina, Bolivia and Chile is one of the most amazing, mysterious and picturesque of South America. It’s a real challenging paradise for adventure lovers! During our trip we will get to know both the Andean roads and the Atacama Desert. We will visit the largest salt flats in the world – Salar de Uyuni, and get a feel of what it feels like to lose orientation and perspective. We will see multi-colored volcanoes and lagoons teeming with flamingos. Make sure not to forget your swimsuit, as steaming geysers are waiting for us! On the route we will surely meet llamas, vicuna, guanaco and flamingos. We will try those fantastic Argentinian steaks, and have the opportunity to vote which of the Argentinian or Chilean wine is better. We’ll also get to know more about the warm hospitality and nature of the local population. Our journey combines demanding off-road riding with culture, cuisine and nature. We promise it will be hard, but more importantly, you will go home with ever-lasting memories – and a craving to come back!

ABOUT THE TRIP:
The ride itself is quite demanding at times. In some areas, the high altitude adds to the challenge. All the tracks are however rideable and this is not a hard-enduro expedition for stuntmen. Expect deep sand of all types, and in some parts corrugations you’ll never forget. However, the reward is clear: stunning landscapes and undying memories! We will be riding mostly gravel tracks of varying conditions.
It is not a race, and we care about safety: We will be going at our own pace and make sure all participants reach the destination safely.
The weather at this time of year is generally dry and sunny. Sometimes, freak storms can occur, and we should have the right gear for this too. We will be riding at high altitudes and it can be very cold if the weather turns against us.
Wearing suitable riding gear is the responsibility of each rider. It is also a good idea to have a camelback with you, as the air is very dry. Pack some sunscreen, and your sunglasses, but also make sure to bring a couple of warm layers and be prepared for the odd rain.
