Andes & Amazon between La Paz and Buenos Aires
OR VICE
VERSA

OVERVIEW

21 days between Buenos Aires and La Paz or vice versa...
Overlanding is the best way to see South America by far! Dragoman have been leading the way in South American overland expeditions since 1990, so take advantage of our years of experience and come with us as we include all the must-see attractions as well as heading to some unique hidden gems, well away from the usual tourist trail. From the high Altiplano to the heart of Argentina's grasslands, this holiday-length trip will takes you through some of South America's most beautiful landscapes. Beginning in Bolivia's capital La Paz, you'll enjoy an overnight homestay the local community of Livichuco in the Bolivian Andes and a visit to the famous mining town of Potosí, before heading across the high plateau to the dramatic expanse of the salt plains of Salar de Uyuni, one of South America's most incredible natural wonders. From here we will cross the unreal wilderness of the high Altiplano before descending into Chile's Atacama Desert. You'll visit the atmospheric town of San Pedro de Atacama before crossing the mighty Andes into the beautiful arid regions of Argentina and the wonderful town of Salta. We will make our way south through the wine regions and highlands of northwest Argentina before arriving at a very special highlight of this trip - our unique estancia stay for two days of horse riding on an idyllic country ranch. From here we make our way to the cosmopolitan Argentinian capital of Buenos Aires.

Both guys were absolutely fantastic, I had such a great time and the transmitted a such a relaxed vibe, even though they had to work so much to solve the many problems we found on the road. Great guys really.
Nicolas B - - 4th June 2015
Excellent job from both crew, always had our interests in mind, very approachable, fun.
Judith E - - 4th June 2015
Neill was fantastic throughout the whole trip, especially when faced with several problems with strikes and blockages. We were even lucky enough to enter the Salt Flats when most other tourists could not.
Matthew W - - 4th June 2015
I couldn't fault these two on this leg of the trip whatsoever. They came up against some pretty challenging situations along the way (dealing with roadblocks, etc.) which they handled immensely well, going above and beyond their duties to ensure that the we got where we needed to be. Really impressive work.
G C - - 4th June 2015
The camping equipment is solid and quite easy to assemble. The truck is very convenient and has almost everything it needs to provide a good experience. A lot of little details were taken care of.
Francois B - - 4th June 2015
These guys do a good job!
Francois B - - 4th June 2015
Very good tour - one of the best companies I have used.
Catherine O - - 4th June 2015
But both Julie and Rob were more than excellent. They were always friendly and helpful, and immensely kind to even the most trying of passengers. Both of them were superb and made a fab team.
Catherine O - - 4th June 2015
Our leaders were excellent, I can't imagine how anybody could perform better.
Karolina K - - 4th June 2015
Julie and Rob were amazing, both went well beyond the requirements to make the trip memorable.
Daniel H - - 4th June 2015
One of the best trips in my life!
Karolina K - - 4th June 2015
The estancia was amazing, these people got me riding a horse without needing oxygen, and gave us a lot of wine and gave me memories fuzzy or not that I'll cherish and the same could be said for the whole tour. I had a blast and that was largely to do with the organisational skills of Tom and Bob. That I just had to show up and it was all done for me, which on this type of tour is what I was looking for.
Isla H - - 4th June 2015
All of the guides had good English and they communicate the local traditions well.
Christine H - - 4th June 2015
Local guides performances were perfect.
