South America Adventure holidays

Adventure holidays in South America

Introduction

South America has a mass of activity and adventure holiday options and walking holidays for you to discover in addition to wildlife holidays, especially in the Amazon.

In Argentina, trek in the foothills of Monte Fitzroy in Los Glaciares National Park or tackle an ascent of Aconcagua, the highest summit in South America. Head onto the enormous glacier at Perito Moreno to see the power of the ice up close.

In Chile explore Patagonia and trek around the Torres del Paine. Drive through the Atacama, kayak or island hop around Chiloe, climb a volcano such as Villarica close to Pucon, go horse riding in the Lake District or paddle along the coastline of Tierra del Fuego.

Peru is synonymous with the Inca Trail and treks to Machu Picchu but there are a large number of altenative walks and other archaeological sites, such as Choquequirao, to discover. Alternatively, consider a circuit of Ausangate or head north to trek in the Cordillera Blanca and Huayhuash.

Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia and Ecuador all also have plenty of activity and adventure options and if you're looking to explore the Salar de Uyuni, learn to surf, uncover lost cities or climb a spectacular peak such as Cotopaxi, you're in the right palce.

These options are just a small selection of the things that it is possible to do in South America; talk to a destination specialist to tailor-make your trip to your personal preferences.
