No other trip encapsulates the diversity of our planet in a more impressive way than the Pan-American Highway.
Shining blue glaciers in Patagonia, gorgeous fjords, smoking volcanoes, huge colonies of penguins and sea lions on the Valdes Peninsula, the seemingly endless Argentinean Pampa, the towering peaks of Torres del Paine, Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre, the biggest salt flat in Bolivia, the calls of toucans and parrots mingled with howler monkeys in the steamy rain forest, the Atacama, the world's driest desert, the legendary lost city of Machu Picchu, the Avenue of the Volcanoes the Panama Canal, secluded beaches in Central America, colorful indigenous markets, mystic Maya sites of Tikal and Chichén Itzá, Ecuador’s La Paz, one of the highest cities in the world, and the beautiful Cartagena, along Colombia’s Caribbean coast… if this seems like an impressive list, just remember there is so much more you will encounter and experience during this unforgettable trip along the Pan-American Highway!
But what exactly is the Pan-American Highway? Since the 1923 Conference of American States, there have been plans to build a continuous roadway running all the way from Alaska to the bottom of Chile and Argentina – a highway that spans the entire length of the North and South America! Today it is more of a concept than an actual route in that it is still incomplete (a tiny part is still missing between Panama and Colombia), and this is the only point during our trip where we must ship the vehicles.
This is the longest organized motorhome tour in the world – and it is one trip you don’t want to miss! We will take you through South America in seventeen weeks, Central America in five weeks and through Mexico in four weeks. The organized portion of trip ends in Nogales, at the border between Mexico and the USA, and everyone is welcome to continue their journey through the USA and Canada, even all the way to Alaska, the other end of the Pan-American Highway.
We begin our trip in Buenos Aires at the beginning of November. You have the option to either travel from Germany on the same cargo ship as your motorhome and spent 35 days at sea or take the plane directly to South America. At the end of the journey, you can ship your Pan-American Highway vehicle back to Europe from either Los Angeles, Brunswick, Baltimore or Halifax. If you are already in the USA and want to join the trip, we can help you in arranging to have your motorhome shipped from Baltimore to Buenos Aires. There is a Roll On / Roll Off ship every month which takes about three weeks.
This experience will introduce you to many of the most important cultural sites and landscapes in Latin America, as well as providing insights into local customs and eating habits. The Pan-American Highway acts as a rough guideline to take us north as we travel through all types of landscapes and vegetation, from the high plains and soaring summits to the rain forest and the coast. While our trips are by and large not negatively affected by poor climate, we do catch a small part of the rainy season in Peru and Bolivia, but reach Central America by March, when it is already the dry season. Overall, our timing during the trip is such that the climate situation is almost ideal – especially when you consider that you have left behind the European winter and that traveling along the Pan-American Highway is a once-in-a-lifetime dream for many people.
