Compass Expeditions | 360 Expedition to Circumnavigate South America

2015 Compass Expeditions 360 Expeditions

Compass Expeditions has released the dates for its 2015 circumnavigation of the entire South American continent – the 360 Expedition.

The 128 day, 20,500-mile Expedition will depart Santiago, Chile, on Feb. 21, 2015, and return to Santiago, Chile, on June 28.

“This is one of the biggest rides on earth and covers an impossible diversity of landscapes, cultures and riding experiences” say Jerry Cook, founder of Compass Expeditions.

“The greatest ride on earth” was how one attendee put it after completing last year’s inaugural 360 Expedition.

“This expedition is a ride of superlatives as we ride the mythical Patagonia to the worlds southernmost city of Ushuaia before turning northwards through Argentina to Iguazu Falls, Cook says.

“From there we move along the coast of beautiful Brazil until reaching Brazil’s mighty Amazon River, where we’ll move at a leisurely pace by boat to the former rubber export capital of Manaus. Riding north again by motorcycle we’ll cross through a land that time forgot to Venezuela, home to Arthur Conan Doyle’s ‘The lost World’. This region is a spectacular surprise with it epic scenery and the worlds tallest waterfall in Angel Falls.

“Heading south we’ll pass through the rider’s paradise of Colombia, past rumbling volcanoes in Ecuador, explore ancient cultures in beautiful Peru, witness the incredible Uyuni Salt Flats of Bolivia before heading across to the Atacama Desert, The highest and driest desert in the world and then finishing the epic adventure back in Santiago.”

The trip will feature 128 Days of spectacular scenery, good company, multiple cultures and languages and with a support vehicle to carry your belongings.

The beauty of this ride, besides the fantastic achievement of circumnavigating the most vibrant continent on the planet, is that you can choose to ride your own motorcycle or rent one.

All shipping of the motorcycle is included to the start point and home from the end, all accommodation is included, many meals, and a host of excursions compliment the trip and get you immersed in the various points we explore.
