We have been amazed in Argentina, unsure of Uruguay, chilled out in Chile and blown away by Bolivia. Read our South America Highlights and Lowlights here.
When we reached Salta, our last stop in Argentina, we were tired and needed a rest. And so that’s what we did. We still found time to wander the streets of town lined with orange trees, climb 1000 steps to the top of a mountain, and even managed to find some great street art.

We spent the day surrounded by some of the most amazing scenery we’ve ever seen – one of the best days of our trip so far. The colour, shape and craziness of the rocks and surroundings, have to be seen to be believed. [To read more, click the heading above.]

We’d left Patagonia and were now in the Lakes District, and with such beautiful scenery on offer, we were planning to continue our hiking spree. But almost as soon as we crossed the […]
