The biggest tour of South America is on again

Posted on


It’s on again for the second time only; Compass Expeditions biggest ride - the 128-day total circumnavigation of the entire South American continent; known as the South America 360 Expedition. 

"It doesn’t get any bigger than this" says Jerry Cook, co-founder of Compass Expeditions, "last held in 2013 we are running it again after numerous requests from past and future clients" continues Jerry.

Starting and finishing in Santiago, Chile the South America 360 travels south to the southernmost city in the world of Ushuaia before the long trek north up into and beyond the Amazon Basin. Turning west we reach the legendary Colombia before then travelling the spine of the Andes all the way south to Santiago. This is a stand-alone tour when it comes to truly exploring the entire continent; the diversity of cultures, landscapes and antiquities is unparalleled in the touring world.

Compass Expeditions is one of only a handful of motorcycle tour operators from around the world, and Australia's only, that offer these major expeditions. Aside from the epic South America 360 expedition Compass Expeditions also operates the legendary London to Magadan: Road of Bones expedition; over 105 days in length and the subject of the Beyond Siberia 2 x 1 hour documentary that was recently launched at Cannes. The newest expedition (which has sold out) is the 80 day Cairo to Cape town Expedition this coming September, " all these expeditions are operated solely by us using our own support vehicles and staff" says Jerry.
