Today we’re leaving South America after four months traveling the continent. Looking back, I’d say we had five really spectacular experiences. Here they are in chronological order:
Although not like the other experiences mentioned, I enjoyed seeing the penguin colony at Punta Tombo, Argentina.
I enjoyed seeing the Perito Moreno Glacier and hiking for 4 days, both at Parque Nacional de los Glaciares in Argentine Patagonia
The drive up the Carretera Austral in Southern Chile was spectacular, especially the part than circumnavigates Lago General Carrera.
I cannot imagine a better way to spend four days in a jeep than touring Bolivia’s “Southwest Circuit” which culminates at the Salar de Uyuni.
Hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is the most famous tourist attraction in South America for a reason.
