Inca Trial 2024
Apart from the well-known Winter Trial, a rally in the best season to enjoy the roads sideways, there are much more great seasons to drive on great roads and enjoy the sights. As well as many more beautiful countries and continents to got to as we found in 2010 for our Carrera Copacabana rally. As this was possibly one of the greatest adventures in our rally history (since the year 2000) we decided to run this event again in 2024 to repeat this for those who missed it.
What is the Inca Trial?
The Inca Trial is a 32-day adventure through South-America.
Starting from Buenos Aires we will follow the coastline south the first three day’s to reach Puerto Madryn where we will enjoy our first rest day and first excursion. Apart from rallying we will find time for you to relax and see the sights! Whale watching it is in Puerto Madryn before we head inland towards Bariloche for the next rest day. One of the best hotels in the whole of South America and a frequent holiday place for the Dutch king and queen.
On our way to the next rest day in the Atacama Desert we pass the Mendoza wine region and we will not do so without having a bit of a tour and taste, obviously.
Our first border crossing into Chili before we head to San Pedro de Atacama for the meanwhile well-deserved rest day in friendly Chili. After only 2 days in Chili we will pass into Peru to possibly the friendliest culture in the world. Here we will cross the highest lake in the world, Lake Titicaca, go and see the Condors, the Nasca lines and we will spend a few day’s in Cusco to be able to see Machu Picchu.
Onto Bolivia and the largest salt lake with a salt crust of over 6 meters thick. We planned a special something on there for you. You might have heard about the hotels made from blocks of ice in Finland in the wintertime? Here they have hotels made from blocks of salt…
From here it is an easy run back into Argentina and to the Iguazu waterfalls where we will have another rest day to again enjoy the sights. We will have a good 27 day’s behind us by now so we will start our preparations for the finish in a few day’s in Rio de Janeiro.
