Our first day on the road includes our first border crossing as we pass into Uruguay and seemingly another era. The country feels like an historical museum as we head towards the 5th largest nation on Earth, Brasil. Hugging the Atlantic Coast we head for the fantastic beaches of Florianopolis.
Heading north we will pass through Blumenau, cross the tropic of Capricorn before finally witnessing the famous Sugarloaf Mountain rising above our handle bars. Ipanema and Copacabana await! Riding through Sao Paulo and Paraná we head for the border triangle of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay. Known as the Iguazu, this area is home to some of the most beautiful and magical waterfalls on the planet. From here on our route takes us across the north of Argentina and towards the town of Salta, where we will meet the longest mountain range on Earth, the Andes.
Heading towards La Paz, the highest capital city in the world, we will pass through the driest region on our planet, the Atacama dessert. Our route continues to amaze as we ride the indescribable Ruta de la Muerta and over the Altiplano towards Lake Titicaca, a ride that promises endless turns with truly magnificent scenery.
The border crossing into Peru marks the beginning of a near seamless stream of highlights: Los Uros, the Floating Islands, the old Incan capital of Cuzco and the ruins of Machu Picchu. We ride through the Andes on one of the best motorcycle roads on Earth as we make our way to Nazca, then on past the dunes of Ica before finally arriving in Lima. After sampling the best ceviche in South America we follow the Pacific heading north before diving into the Ecuadorian jungle on our route to Colombia. We are traveling on the Panamericana – a name full of emotions and dreams. The longest road on Earth, we will tackle about 4,000km of its 26,000km length before turning off at Medellin and head for Cartagena, where we will board the ferry to take us to Panama.
