    Volvo Classics Panamericana ~ Panamericana Roadtrip powered by Sapa Pana Travel

Johan, the founder of Sapa Pana Travel, drove already more than 50,000 km, in his own Dutch car, through South America. He drove several times through Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Brazil and of course Argentina!

In 2008 Johan drove the 'Ruta 40' for the first time.  After that, he drove a number of parts of this route for several other times. His meaning about the 'Ruta 40'; there are just a few National highways in the world, where you drive through so much diversity of landscapes and climatic zones.   

Ruta 40

The National route 40 (Ruta 40) in Argentina is a great route, of more than 5.000 km, by the Andes mountains. A route from sea level to nearly 5.000 meters altitude. You'll drive about 236 bridges, pass 18 major rivers, you'll further drive along 13 beautiful lakes, salt marshes, through more or less 20 national parks and you'll drive over 27 mountain passes. The Ruta 40 is build in 1935 and runs from South to North Argentina, through eleven provinces in three regions; Patagonia (Santa Cruz, Chubut, Río Negro and Neuquén), Cuyo (Mendoza, San Juan and La Rioja) and Norte (Catamarca, Tucumán, Salta and Jujuy).

There are many possibilities in terms of car driving in Argentina. In addition to the Ruta 40, described above, driving in the Northwest of the country, near Salta,  and in the Argentine Lake district is also very much recommended.
