Our adventure across the Andes


13This fantastic adventure took us from Santiago de Chile to Lima in Peru, via Bolivia, in 30 days and about 3 500 kilometers!

We discovered amazing and unexpected landscapes more beautiful the ones than the others (lagoons, geysers, volcanoes, salt desert, Inca ruins…).

A trip of extreme temperature changes between day and night and of constant amazement. A trip that would also be hard sometimes. We would be cold – very cold, suffer from the high altitudes (about 4 900 meters at the highest!), experience “basic” accomodations, sleep on buses or trains, …

We learnt that exploring these out-of-the-extraordinary places did not come easy. But it was worth it and I would do it all over again! The Andes truly offer magical landscapes to discover!
