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.
