Discover an exotic continent

South America is a vast continent with a wide variety of landscapes, wildlife, ancient cultures and modern cosmopolitan cities. The countries share interwoven histories of colonisation by the Portuguese in Brasil and Spanish everywhere else, dating back to the time of Columbus and the age of conquest. This strong European colonial influence enshrines the whole continent in a familiarity that contrasts with the remnants of powerful indigenous civilisations, providing an exotic blend that all inquisitive travellers will not want to miss.

Consider the impressive remains of the ancient Inca civilisation in Peru and Bolivia, and Andean mountain landscapes stretching along the Pacific coast from Colombia in the north, through Ecuador, Bolivia and Peru, all the way south to Argentina and Chile. The Amazon rainforest covers an immense area, including parts of Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia, with pristine virgin forest, wildlife and jungle lodges. Cruise the Galapagos Islands, Chilean Fjords and Glaciers of Tierra del Fuego or venture into Antarctica. The national parks of Patagonia in Argentina and Chile are the perfect places to embrace the great outdoors, walking in the mountains and admiring glaciers at close range. Travellers will also find beautiful sandy beaches and sophisticated cities such as Lima, Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires with world class arts, shopping and culture, with hotels and restaurants to match.

We invite you to browse our selection of South America holidays below. These itineraries have been carefully planned by our destination specialists to optimise your time and provide a deeper perspective on South America.
