SURF. CLIMB. EXPLORE.

We are driving to the southern most tip of South America from Canada in our custom built Mitsubishi Delica that we call Peso.   Wandering Peso was born out of our dream to adventure into raw, honest and wild places around the world.  

We have been wandering and exploring this route since June 2018 and we’d love for you to follow along.

Manual Locking Hubs
