On our South America tours you can go off the beaten path on our small group tours and see some of the world’s most amazing sites. From the Torres Del Paine National Park in Patagonia, spanning Chile and Argentina, to the Perito Moreno Glacier, the mountain ranges at the southern tip of South America are full of epic visuals!

The mighty Andes line the western edge of the continent, extending virtually its entire western coast. Off the western coast of South America, see the Galapagos Islands, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visit Peru’s Incan ruins at Machu Picchu.

Explore the Amazon rainforest, stretching across Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Brazil. Travel to Colombia is a necessity as well, with friendly people, great food and amazing sites.

Regardless of where you travel in South America, it’s sure to be an epic experience that will leave a positive impression on you for the rest of your life.
