End of Trans-American Highway (Route 3) in Argentina at Tierra del Fuego Park

Joseph Hollick

Auto enthusiasts have been intrigued with the idea of traveling the entire distance from the top to bottom (or the other way around) of the Americas for years since the idea of the Pan-American Highway emerged in 1923.  Traveling the length of South America, mostly along the West Coast, is fairly easy -- and the roads are good for most of the distance. 

Countries in South America that can be visited on the Pan-American Highway are Columbia, Ecuador (the Pan-Am runs the entire length of Ecuador's Highway 35), Peru (Peru´s Highway 1 is also the route of the Pan-Am all the way from Ecquador to Chile), Chile (Chile´s Highway 5 for much of the route), and Argentina.
