Take a look at our latest interview with the brilliant team of AdventureFaktory, which consists of a group of passionate and dedicated adventurers.
Take a look at what they had to say about travelling through South America below:
It’s not every day that you travel on the infamous Death Road. For someone with a fear of heights is it something that you would advise? Possibly as a way of getting over the fear?
It is not so much the fear of heights that is the most concerning when riding your bike down the path road, it is the fear of losing control.
As long as you stay on the inside of the road then you will be fine. You are also able to go at your own speed and the tour guides are extremely kind and understanding.
Brazil is known for its brilliant array of adventure sports, what would you say was the number one activity an adrenaline junky should try out?
There are some incredible zip lining activities over rainforest canopies that are well worth trying. If you are in to surfing then there are plenty of isolated spots to find.
Half the adventure of anything in Brazil is making your way there and trying to speak Portuguese.
Salar de Uyuni is one of the most wonderous places in the world, is it something that anyone would enjoy? What are the best things to do there?
We truly believe it is something that everyone must see before they die. There are dozens of tours for as many or as few days as you wish.
Driving out on the Salt Flats is like being on a highway and there is plenty to see and do out there.
Try going around rainy season so you can get an evening shot of the reflection on the salt flats.
Out of all the brilliant activities available throughout South America, what would you say was the one that any adventurer would consider?
If not the Dead Road on Bolivia, then other options would be diving with hammerhead sharks in the Galapagos or mountain biking down a Volcano in Ecuador.
What adventures would you suggest for travellers working on a budget?
South America is a great place to start for budget travellers. There is inexpensive transport an accommodation in most of the major cities.
Food you can get off the street and is the same as locals eat.
There are so many adventure sports that do not require any real cost such hiking, mountaineering, surfing and sandboarding.
