Hi everyone!

I'm traveling alone to SA before I start my studies in Denmark.

I'm not sure where to start when arriving in SA, but I guess it would be a good idea to start en Buenos Aires, on Rio de Janeiro.. In to Iguazu falls and further west to Lima to visit Macchu Pichu!

I hope some of you have some good suggestions?

I'll be flying out near the 1st of May 2011.

It'll be cool to hook up with some openminded peeps from whereever somewhere in SA!

Cheers! ;)

I am currently planning a 3-4month trip to SA starting in Chile and should be in Buenos Aires very early in May i.e am landing in Santiago 27 april then bussing over the Andes into Argentina by I hope the 3rd or 4th then on to Motevideo, Uraguay and on through Paraguay (hopefully Iguasu) and to Bolivia, Macchu Pichu before heading to Galapagous. My current plans are pretty loose but am in the process of making more detailed arrangements.

Hi , I'm trekking few National Parks in Argentina , Chile and Brazil if you want to join us will be wonderful to share our beautiful South America with you ....

starting 27 of March 2011 from Buenos Aire Argentina , to Patagonia The Lake District.

April/May 2011 Bariloche to Los Glaciares National Park and Torres del Paine Chile.

May/June Rio De Janeiro Brazil - Serra Dos Orgaos National Park to Salvador Bahia Chapada Das Diamantinas.

The only requirement is the love for the wilderness and Trekkers must be of at least average trekking fitness and able to carry a fully loaded backpack continuously for 5 days. You will need equipment as well as your own food. No previous trekking experience is required .

Keep in touch if you keen

Warm Regards
