The journey starts along the Andes, between 3,500 and 4,500 meters above sea level, a region dotted with active volcanoes, and lagoons and salt lakes inhabited by flamingos. Coming down from altitude you'll enter the Atacama Desert, the driest in the world, but alive and lit by a thousand colors. Then you'll descend along the coast of the Pacific Ocean, where roaring waves crash on high cliffs, mixed with long stretches of isolated beaches. More than 1,550 miles of your journey will be spent in the most absolute solitude, in close contact with nature, driving on dirt roads that seem never-ending.
