From Colombia to Cape Horn and from the Andes to the Amazon, South America is a vast continent, offering more adventure and diversity than one traveler could ever discover; but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try! Even if you’ve already trekked the Inca Trail or visited the penguins of Patagonia, there is so much more to experience, like the rich folk culture and wine lands of northern Argentina or the Atacama Desert in Chile.
I’m also excited to announce a NEW itinerary in Peru, ourMount Ausangate Trek, perfect for experienced hikers that want to get off the beaten path and experience the natural beauty and rich culture of the Andes.
Here are a few of my favorites trips that will make you want to visit South America for the first time or keep you coming back for more:
Experience the mystical power of Machu Picchu and Mt. Ausangate on a lodge to lodge trek under the shadow of the apupast hanging glaciers and azure lakes among isolated Quechua communities herding alpacas and llamas on the highland altiplano. Ausangate is a challenging high-elevation trek ideal for experienced hikers who prefer to get off the beaten path.
Chile is a land of contrasts, from the stark Atacama Desert to the vibrant wine valleys and culture-rich cities, ending at the iconic spires of Patagonia. With innumerable places to explore, this 12-day active adventure gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in a variety of landscapes and experience drastically different activities, cultures, and food.
For wildlife lovers, this is the trip of a lifetime! Accompanied by expert naturalist guides, this active and educational adventure provides the ultimate in-depth experience with two of the world’s preeminent natural wonders and biological reserves while allowing for a few days at the end to relax and explore Brazil’s cultural capital.
Our handcrafted culinary and cultural wine adventure in Argentina journeys through the vinicultural paradise of Mendoza and the Northwest provinces of Salta and Juyjuy regions, also known for lively folk music, zesty cuisine, dramatic canyon, desert landscapes and a rich cultural heritage.
Now is the time to save big on our trip “Best of Peru: Machu Picchu and the Amazon” when you book before the end of the year (Offer ends 12/31/17).
