This is a story about travelling down the length of the Andes and the search to see condors. From the far north of the continent on the arid Guajira peninsular, the journey passes through hotspots such as Medellin and Bogota and climbing up Mount Puracé, an active volcano.

There is a break in Quito to stand on the equator. There is a fascinating side trip to the Galapagos and a voyage through the islands that make up the archipelago. There is a huge array of wildlife that is not afraid of humans, so you can get really close to its tortoises and other unique wildlife.

Then there is the experience of seeing some of Peru’s ancient civilisations and the country of origin of more than 3,500 varieties of potato before continuing down the Andes to the windswept wastelands of Patagonia to Ushuaia at the end of the world.
