South America

From the Amazon Rainforest to the towering peaks of Torres del Paine in southern Chile, South America is always full of surprises. Climb the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu or discover the Iguacu Falls. Cruise through the Galapagos or venture south to Antarctica.

South America is undergoing a travel renaissance. Its years of having something of a risky reputation are behind it, and the region is now proving itself to be a safe, vibrant and thoroughly exciting travel destination.

The diversity of travel experiences is simply breathtaking, and each country has its own unique charms and attractions. From exploring the lost Inca city of Machu Picchu to learning the tango in Buenos Aires, from swimming with sea lions in the Galapagos Islands to cruising down the mighty Amazon River, South America has something for every travel taste.
