Panamericana Expedition

An epic drive and the most legendary route connecting all Pazific Ocean countries from the very top of Alsaska to the very South of Argentina. 

We ship to Halifax and start to "collect" the beauties of North America, one by one. Only guided by the weather and the seasons our way will go along the route, but seldom ON the Panamerican Highway. Then we are up for off-road adventures and meeting the indigenous people, want to listen to their amazing stories and whenever possible bring some happiness.
