1. Bolivia: The Altiplano

Art journeys to one of the earth's most extreme environments-the high, rugged and remote Altiplano. More lunar than earthly in appearance, Bolivia's high plain is a land lost in time. The Altiplano's dazzling dreamscapes include the world's largest salt flat, an island of golden cactus, scarlet-tinted lakes, twin volcanoes and surreal skies.

Torres del Paine National Park in the far southern Andes of Patagonia is remote and challenging. For adventurers it's the "edge" destination.
