In our ‘Slow Travel Approach’ of looking at a destination we welcome you to join our next webinar about 3 of our Drift Tours on 27th July 2024. For more details kindly contact our branch offices.

How do you experience a continent like South America in three weeks? and do it without running around too much? When we thought of this, we came up with the idea of combining the best of Peru with an addition of the Iguazu Falls, in Brazil and Argentina, and putting it in a box with Patagonia of the South. What comes out after a shake is a beautiful itinerary which gives a feel of traveling through a continent at a pace that lets you be with its wonders! We present the Peru Iguazu and Patagonia, where you travel the length of the Andes and see them shaping an entire land. A Whole Continent!
