South America holiday highlights

Enchanting Peru is home to ruins and artefacts of lost civilisations. We can take you deep into the Amazon rainforest, across the Andes by rail and to the lost city of Machu Picchu.

Take home a photo of you standing on the equator line in Quito, Ecuador, or retrace Darwin’s footsteps on a cruise through the Galapagos Islands with the chance to get remarkably close to incredible wildlife.

Experience the incredible beach life, nightlife and hypnotic samba beats in the big, vibrant city of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, glide down the mighty Amazon, or discover the wildlife-rich tropical wetlands of the beautiful Pantanal.

Discover epic landscapes in captivating Chile. Explore the Atacama Desert – known as one of the driest places on Earth; join a cruise and drift through a beautiful wilderness of glaciers and snow-dusted mountains; or journey off the west coast to remote Easter Island to discover the mysterious Moai statues.

Bolivia is home to the highest natural lake, Lake Titicaca, as well as the world's highest capital city, La Paz. Whether you wish to wander the traditional markets of La Paz, hike the ancient temples of the hallowed city of Tiahuanaco, or witness the dazzling beauty of the vast salt flats at Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia has it all.

Buenos Aires, Argentina, is the cosmopolitan gateway to South America, and in many ways, a very spectacular place. North of Buenos Aires, Iguazú Falls is one of the greatest wonders of the natural world with 275 separate cascades. Visit the Perito Moreno Glacier in Patagonia and gaze in awe at this vast blue-tinged natural phenomenon that is framed dramatically by snow-capped mountains.
