Planning 3 months in South America (Brazil-Argentina-Bolivia-Peru)

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone, I'm just graduated from university in the UK and am currently on a gap year. The plan is to first spend three months in South America basically in this order:


UK to Brazil to Argentina to Bolivia to Peru back to the UK, with circa 3 weeks spent in each of the four countries.


Now I just need a bit of help and advice planning a specific itinerary!

Here's what I have roughly planned thus far in a day(everything in order):

London (UK) to Salvador (Brazil)

Brazil:
Salvador (5 days)
Rio (6 days)
Pantanal (2 days)
Bonito (2 days)
Foz do Iguacu (2 days)

Argentina:
Yet to plan

Bolivia:
La Paz (2 days)
Sucre (3 days)
Potosi (1 day)
Salar de Uyuni (3 days)
Cochabamba (half a day)
La Paz (1 day)
Rurrenabaque (2 days)
Lake Titicaca (1 day)

Peru:
Puno (2 days)
Arequipa (2 days)
Cuzco (2 days)
Ollantalaytambo (2 days)
Machu Picchu (1 day)
Cuzco (2 days)
Amazon (3 days)
Lima (2 days)

Lima (Peru) to London (UK)

This is where I am at the moment. Now this needs A LOT of tinkering I'm sure, so any help would be greatly appreciated. I've kept each itinerary shorter than 3 weeks in order to account for travel (which I have no real idea about yet) though I plan to use the bus where possible and plane only where absolutely necessary. If I've missed out any places worth visiting, spending too much/ too little time somewhere, got the order wrong, or Anything please tell me and be as frank as you like. Any 3 week itinerary to Argentina (that includes Patagonia and hopefully Tierra del Fuego) that anybody would like to post- well that would of course be welcomed.

Thanks for any help you can give!
