Route visiting every country in South America? (1year+ trip)I have been researching a trip through South America - visiting every country starting June next year for 1 year+...... Any tips on what what routes to take? (all answers much appreciated!)
We are currently thinking of starting in Chile - heading up to Venezuela, across into Brazil and then up into the Guyanas. From there back into to Brazil to finish off with Paraguay, Uruguay and Argentina...
Any comments/critiques would be most welcome! (whether they relate to the question or not)

2Im hesitant to say, as to start a thread that could spiral out of control...... But you can choose 1 of two routes.
Both a circle, but the choice is whether to move clockwise, or counter clockwise.
Each way has it pluss and minuss. Each side can, and will be, backed, and/or debunked, by the cabals on this branch that back each route.
Beware, some potesters here are double, sometimes triple agents, and only use this forum to offer up lies and misdirection.
Thats all i can say.....
Good luck, and godspeeeed.

4I'd aim to be in Patagonia over the summer months, late Nov to Feb. Also try to avoid the Andean countries during this time as it's their rainy season.

5Hazzdog has got it: the main organizing principle is to be far south during summer. Secondary principle: evade rainy seasons at high altitudes, since that translates to clouds, chill, landslides, mud and sometimes snow.
Once you've figured that part out you can start to put a route together. Of course, you're not going to avoid all wintery weather, and you're certainly going to catch some rain no matter what you do.
And watch out for those "cabals!"

7...thanks everyone who has written back so far. I will definitely try and take the advice on avoiding the andes during the rainy season!
A bit more info - the only Islands off the main continent that i plan to visit currently are the Galapagos and possibly Easter Island.....and when i say every country i mean all 13 on the continent (if French Guinea is considered a country - regardless i plan on getting there because it looks awesome!).
Any more recommendations/opinions would be great.
