South America

The enchanting continent of South America is home to the planet’s largest river, the highest waterfall, the most immense rainforest and contrastingly the driest desert. A mesmerising world of fire and ice, the continent boasts incredible natural landscapes and cities with differing personalities.

There are endless activities to get involved in: play beach volleyball on the famous Copacabana beach of Brazil; learn the tango in Argentina; explore the fascinating Witches’ Market of La Paz in Bolivia where mystics claim their potions can heal anything; walk around the Charles Darwin Research Centre of the Galapagos Islands, or take part in an thrilling nocturnal safari trip in the Ecuadorian Amazon. If you are planning an once-in-a-lifetime trip to the Amazon, we can help make that become a reality with our experienced staff on hand.
