The Pan-American Highway (South America) – The Ultimate Road Trip

The Pan-American Highway (South America) – The Ultimate Road Trip


South America

We believe that travellers are dreamers who make their desires for adventure a reality. Now comes the clichéd question: “Are you a traveller or a tourist?”


If you have ever experienced overland travel, you will know that they are the best thing EVER! There’s something so intoxicating when you are driving hours at a stretch like nomads and watching the landscapes change from desert to forest to bustling cities. It makes you experience towns and villages that aren’t destinations that people brag about, eat local food at roadside restaurants, befriend people who don’t even speak your language, avoid ending up with photos filled with tourists instead of the beautiful landscape and more.

You got the drift, right?

Overland travel is THE BEST THING EVER.


Now that we have established that, let’s talk about one of the most epic overland travel route – The Pan-American Highway. The route is divided in two parts – Pan-American Highway (South America) and Pan-American Highway (North America).

At its fullest extent the Pan-American Highway is a network of roads stretching from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, to Ushuaia, Argentina, a distance of around 24,000 kilometres. According to Guinness World Records, the Pan-American Highway is the world’s longest “motorable road”. To be honest, we have done the complete stretch during our “The Great Indian World Trip” and we were so fascinated by it that we decided to take you along on this once in a lifetime adventure with us.

No, no, we aren’t talking about driving 24,000 km… but how about 15,000 km? That’s how much you will be driving on the South American Expedición 2018. Now it’s not every day that one gets a chance to drive from top to the bottom of South America. Yes, we are talking about the entire continent!


Still not convinced? Here are some reasons why you need to do this Pan-AM (South America) drive:

  • Get up close and personal with the Gods of Mountains as you drive through Andes – The longest mountain chain in the World.
  • Experience the biodiversity of Columbia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina and Chile from the seat of a car. No other continent can compare to this one.
  • The Pan-American drive is for the tough ones. This is going to be the longest and the toughest drive of your life as you begin the drive from the northernmost city – Cartagena, Colombia to the southernmost tip of South America – Ushuaia, Argentina
  • While driving the length of Patagonia, you will experience jagged peaks, unspoiled rivers, and nature that is wild, barren and beautiful.
  • There is no better way to experience the music, culture, the food, the people, the beaches, the wildlife, the nature of this amazing continent than by driving in your vehicle.
