Hello Bobcarmel and welcome to TravellersPoint.

Your first post here is a little vague - do you want help with the planning, someone to join you, someone to drive you?

Do you intend on driving yourself from Cape Horn to Inuvik of have you got other another start point and end point in mind? What route are you thinking of? How do you intend to cross the Darien Gap?

You might want to add a few details to your profile and perhaps put the trip into your map too.

Several countries from South America to Canada. If going overland between SA and Canada you have to research the visa requirements for each country and any special permission for a vehicle if driving.

Elaborate a little bit more exactly what you intend to do. (Flying direct to Canada, driving, using available overland public transportation, or do you intend to walk this distance? )

Flying from "somewhere in South America" to "somewhere in Canada" should not be difficult if you have a passport, meet visa requirements, can support yourself and not be a burden to Canada. And have money to pay for transportation back home.

Come on back!

Will update profile soon.

Early planning stages of route. Will research visa Requirements.

At this point, overland public transportation across s.america. then , drive north America.

Greatly appreciated any tips welcomed.

How will you get through Central America?

As others have alluded, the big challenge is the Darien Gap in Panama. There's no overland route and options by sea tend to come and go. It’s really the only problem part.

Over 60 years ago, I went to a presentation of a couple who drove from Alaska to Chile. They had an amphibious vehicle which IIRC could go out into the ocean safely.

Of course the prospective traveler does not have to use the same vehicle for the whole trip - like Around the World in 80 days where a variety of transport was used.
