Holidays to South America

But it’s not just beautiful: some of the world’s most fabled travel adventures can be had here – whether you’re exploring the wild tangles of the Amazon jungle, or venturing across Bolivia’s salt flats in a hardy 4WD.

Every journey is rich in rewards – from the rhythms of Rio Carnival, to the magnificent Inca Trail, which weaves through the Andes mountains to the ancient city of Machu Picchu. Gaze upon Christ the Redeemer, try tango dancing in Buenos Aires, or go stargazing in Chile’s Atacama Desert.

South America is a nature lover’s playground too. Here you can admire Attenborough-worthy wildlife with a cruise around Ecuador’s Galapagos Islands – in particular the blue-footed booby, the Galapagos tortoise, and the salt-spitting marine iguana – or feel the spray of the world’s largest waterfall system on a trip to Brazil or Argentina. And let’s not forget Torres del Paine National Park, one of the most majestic hiking destinations in the world.

Whatever you want to see, a trip to South America can be as high-octane (or as leisurely) as you like. It’s yours to discover on foot, by bike, or even a zip wire through the Amazon – or, for a more relaxed ride, from tropical beaches and steamy hot springs.
