ACROSS THE AMERICAS
Drive The Globe is planning another epic adventure. This trip will encompass the Americas. Starting in Tierra Del Fuego, Argentina, we will wind our way through South America, Central America and finally across the USA to finish in New York City. Vehicles will be shipped one way from the US and participants will fly from New York. Further details will be posted as they become available. We expect to travel with around 4-6 vehicles.
***UPDATE 2019: Due to frequently changing political situations this trip has been delayed a number of times since 2014 and currently we are unsure of a departure date. In late 2018 plans were again revisited and the prospects are looking good once again ***
TRIP LENGTH: 6-8 MONTHS
ROUTE: TIERRA DEL FUEGO TO NEW YORK CITY
ACCOMMODATION: VEHICLE CAMPING (SOME HOTELS)
VISAS: REQUIRED FOR MANY COUNTRIES
CHALLENGE RATING: DIFFICULT
COST PER PERSON: TBD
ONE TOUGH ROAD! The final itinerary is being sorted out currently. What we know so far: The vehicles will be shipped to Southern Argentina where they will be met by the participants. We will be exploring Patagonia, Tierra Del Fuego and Argentina and Chile as we make our way slowly North. We expect to weave about the continent quite a bit. Buenos Aires, Santiago and Rio De Janeiro are on the list of Southern cities to see. We expect to make a very high altitude passing of the Andes Mountains and a fairly low passing of the Amazon River basin. Countries visited in South America should include; Argentina, Chile, Uraguay, Paraguay, Bolivia, Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and Venezuela.
We will be taking a ferry to avoid the very famous Darien Gap area (maybe some day it will be safe of an expedition?) and entering Central America via Panama. The trip will visit every Central American country incuding; Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, Belize and Mexico. We will then cross the Rio Grande and head across the USA to our final destination of New York City. All told we estimate about 29,000 kilometers! If you have ever dreamed of seeing the Amazon, Patagonia, Inca or Aztec ruins, the Andes Mountains or the beaches of Rio this might be the trip for you.
