It’s incredible to partner with Viventura. We’ve already experienced so many wonderful sites and met some unforgettable people. We’re glad to share those experiences with readers of the Viventura blog.

South America tours operator Viventura announced it’s sponsoring a pair of adventurers flying their trike-type aircraft across continents in a world record attempt estimated to take four years. In return Viventura will get a bird’s eye view of South America through videos and the duo’s unique perspective of the country as they journal their visits on the Viventura blog.

Doreen Kroeber and Andreas Zmuda, the duo behind the Trike-Globetrotter are attempting an official world record for the longest unsupported flight ever on a trike-type micro light by flying a trike 100,000 miles on all five continents, and making stops in 80 countries. They began their trek July 21, 2012 on the East Coast of the United States in Florida. Their route will take them across deserts, mountains and oceans on their “flying motorcycle.” The trip is expected to culminate July 21, 2016 in Sydney, Australia.

“What’s so great about this opportunity is that Doreen and Andreas share such a passion for travel and especially South America where they met. So having them contribute their perspectives on the country as they attempt this world record is incredibly exciting,” said Andre Kiwitz CEO and founder of Viventura.

Kroeber and Zmuda met in November 2010 during an Amazon expedition their South American vacations to Peru, Bolivia and Brazil when Zmuda was a tour guide and Kroeber a participant of the tour. With a shared passion for adventure, food, wine and flying in an open aircraft, the pair will provide Viventura blog readers with a unique perspective and a renewed sense of awe of the South America landscape.

“It’s incredible to partner with Viventura. We’ve already experienced so many wonderful sites and met some unforgettable people. We’re glad to share those experiences with readers of the Viventura blog,” Zmuda said.

Viventura allows travelers to experience the real culture of South America by offering South America tours that explore how residents actually live, and through adventure tours that reveal the hidden beauty of the landscape that other tours ignore. The Trike-Globetrotters’ world record attempt is an excellent example of the spirit that makes Viventura tours so special.
