Overland Travel in Peru

Driving in Peru gives you plenty of overland adventures. Take the easy one and drive down (or up) the largely flat Pan-American Highway over asphalt that crosses the desert. At night, rough camp on remote beaches. Go off-the-beaten track and focus your road trip on the northeast. Depending on the weather the road conditions may vary from perfect to disastrous, the latter allowing for a true  4×4 challenge.

Do you love mountains? Opportunities abound as the Andes Mountains lie across the country from north to south. Whether you focus on the Cordillera Blanca, or the famous Machu Picchu and Sacred Valley region, overland travel in Peru is bound to keep you captivated.

Why Drive the Pan American Highway?

What’s the lure of the Pan Americana? I asked a number of overlanders what made them drive (parts of) the Pan American Highway that links Alaska with Ushuaia.

Ziplining to Machu Picchu?

To get to Machu Picchu you take the train or hike the Inca trail. Are there other options? Oh yes, a backdoor trail with a stop at Cola de Mono Ziplining.
