The Andes stretches widely from the north of Chile and Argentina, and reaches far into Peru and Bolivia with its infinite highlands. The Andes Mountains in the north of Chile and Argentina is virtually unexplored. This area has the driest desert regions in the world, and features one of the largest salt flats in the world: the Slalar de Arizaro. The most spectacular landscapes hare are rarely visited, because they are simply very difficult to reach.

Few people live in this area, so there is hardly any infrastructure. The roads that are available are unpaved, and can only be driven on with strong four-wheel drive vehicles. Signage does not really exist here, so only guides, who know their way around here, can take you without getting lost. Now it is possible to discover this spectacular landscape, where you will enjoy an amazing experience by driving yourself, accompanied by a guide, of course. Would you like to go on this adventure?
