Is it physically possible AND realistic to drive from Rio to Brasilia to Lima and back? On a map, it looks like BR-364 and Peruvian Highway 16 are connected, but it's hard to figure out whether they're actually paved & well-maintained the whole way, and whether there are things like restaurants, gas stations, and hotels along the whole route to make it actually do-able. One of my friends (who'll be going along if we can convince him it's not totally insane) is Brazilian and grew up in Rio, but he's lived in Miami since college and knows as much about the roads through Acre & Rondonia as I know about the roads in Alaska... ie, nothing

My Brazilian roadmap says there are only two connections with Peru, near the village of Sao Francisco, southwest of Rio Branco, and further west. The last 100km of this road to Sao Francisco seems to be unpaved. It´s a hell of a drive from Brasilia to the Peruvian border alone; some 3400 kilometers (2.100 miles).

This border near Inapari leads to the Peruvian 26B road. For 200 miles, it's no more than a track. Then you have to travel to Cusco, some 500km/310 miles of unpaved roads. Between Cusco and the coast, you have to pass mountain passes over 4100m (12.300ft), not every car can take such heights, because of the less air to the engine.

The Peruvian road 16 you referring to, is a track between the Brazilian border and Pucallpa, and some stretches between Pucallpa and Lima aren't paved either. But the major problem should be the Brazilian side of this road; the last 400 miles to the border are unpaved. I don't think there are much facilities on the way either.

But if your in for an adventurous drive, with a 4x4 jeep, knowledge of languagues, and knowledge of repairing vehicles, i think it's not impossible.

But it's a long time, i think it requires at least one and a half week, especially to cross the Andes and the Amazone rain forest. And you might be days away from medical facilities in case of emergency.

Basically, you have three ways to do RJ-Lima.

On the first one uses any road of the network that links Brazil-Chile through Argentina. Once in Chile, you take Pan-American highway north directly to Lima. This way is long as hell, unlogical but 100% paved in good/excellent condition and a lot of towns/services all the way long.

The second option you enter Bolivia on the Corumbá/Puerto Suarez border. Until there the road is good/excellent. (You can see some pics of this stretch of the road in my post above). But in Bolivia, after the border and until Santa Cruz de la Sierra, there is an earth road that sometimes remembers a track. You have some river crossings and a lot of mud. It´s very recommended to use a 4X4 and not to go alone. After Sta. Cruz de la Sierra, is all paved until Lima and you go by Cochabamba, La Paz and the border to Peru and so on...

The third option you go to Rio Branco, in Acre state and to the border with Peru in Assis Brasil/Iñapari. Until there is 100% paved in regular conditions. Once in Peru, there is an earth road/track until near Cuzco in very bad condition, river crossings, mud....in the lower lands. When you begin to climb the Andes, hell breaks loose! Sometimes only one car per time, alternates rocky/mud terrain and a deep canyon aside the road on an altitude of more than 4000m!!! Almost no assistance by the road, only villages. It remebers the Camel Trophy and is impossible without a 4X4 and completely insane to go alone. By now this is the worst option by far, but there is huge construction works by now remaking the whole road. And until 2010 by the plans, we´ll have a new brighting paved road which will be the best way to reach Lima from Brazil.

Will that new road be 2 lanes in each direction or just 1 lane in each direction?

Yeah, I read about that last night... I think it's called the "Carretera Transoceanica". I think I'll plan a coast to coast road trip a year or two after it's done... after the basic trappings of civilization have firmly and unambiguously arrived, but before the road turns into Brazil's own version of "Alligator Alley" (across the Florida Everglades) circa 1990. The final year before I-75 finally opened, it had bumper to bumper traffic all day, every day, with an average of 3 gruesome, road-closing deadly head-on collisions per month. And the "other" road to Miami (Tamiami Trail) wasn't much better. I suspect the exact same thing will eventually happen to the Transoceanica... 10-20 years from now everyone in Brazil will want to rebuild/replace it with a real freeway (or at least 4-lane it), but the environmentalists will do their best to fight and delay it for another 20 years while increasing numbers of people will die every year in horrible accidents.

One lane each direction since by now there´s no demand for a double carriageway. And the costs to build it would make it unfeasible.

I just red an article on www.worldhighways.com that they are planning to upgrade the Peruvian part of this road by 2009.
