Let's take a look at 3 of the best overland trips in South America.

Charismatic South America: 13 countries, the lush Amazon jungle; the dusty snowed in peaks of the Andes; white cashmere sands of the sweeping beachfronts that lap onto the crystal-clear azure ocean. If you are looking for the most incredible, unforgettable adventures, South America has it all and more. Experience the ultimate feast for the senses and let your journey be led by your soul. South America is a journey of discovery, as mysterious and intoxicating as the continent is, there is many a journey of the soul, waiting to be had here. Travelling through the continent solo is not an unusual pastime, and many solo travellers will encounter many a kindred spirit on their way. The worst part of your trip will be deciding where to go, so I have picked my top 3 overland trips in South America for those making their way overland with a smile, a backpack and a mission.

1. Lima to Cusco via Arequipa - Peru

mountainous landforms, mountain, ridge, wilderness, highland,

Travelling between Lima and Cusco is a popular route among locals and visitors alike. The road via Arequipa is not bad at all and there are many ways to enjoy this particular route. Lima is one of those destinations that is desperately underrated and to be fair not many people are mad about the place for a start. But for those who have taken the time to get to know the area a bit, they have found it to be a thoroughly rewarding experience. If you have more than 2 days, stick around, join a bike tour, and take the time to get on a first name basis with this quiet gem.

It is well worth it to book a tour on a reputable bus company – be very careful to do your research there are some cowboys out there – as you will get that much more out of your trip. There are some stunning landmarks in Arequipa and plenty of places to stay to suit every budget and the food is outstanding. And when you reach your destination at Cusco – that will be your real reward.
