A continent that conjures up images of conquistadors, ancient civilisations and deep dark jungle, a holiday to South America is certainly a trip that will be full of adventure. From the colossal peaks of the Andes to the vibrant sands of Rio’s world renowned beaches, South America runs on a rhythm of its very own, full of passion, colour and fun. Throughout the continent you’ll find reminders of civilisations of time gone by - including the world famous Machu Picchu - and a wealth of incredible landscapes, from skyscraping peaks to endlessly tumbling waterfalls.
Our South America holidays cover everything from vibrant Peru to stunning Patagonia and the deserts of Chile to the natural wonders of The Galapagos.
Experience the very best bits of South America on an incredible adventure that encompasses Incas and Iguaçu, soaring peaks and sumptuous steak and all that’s inbetween finishing with a bang in the spirited city of Rio de Janiero.
Encompassing two of the world’s most incredible destinations, the Galapagos Islands and Machu Picchu, this tour delves into colonial cities, the roots of the Incan Empire and spends four nights on the Galapagos, allowing you to experience the culture, history and nature of Ecuador and Peru.
Traverse the southern tip of South America, travelling from the desolate beauty of the Atacama down to the majestic ice and rock wilderness of Patagonia. Be awed by glaciers, weather-hewn peaks and teeming wildlife at the end of the world, before retiring to the vibrancy of Buenos Aires
