Highlights of our South America holidays
Choose one of our grand South America tours to experience the samba clubs, beach life and carnival atmosphere of Rio de Janeiro, crowned by the fabled Christ the Redeemer Statue and spread beneath Sugarloaf Mountain. Hot on its heels is intoxicating Buenos Aires with its tango bars and fine colonial monuments, and La Paz in Bolivia, one of the highest cities in the world. The line-up continues with the grandiose Peruvian capital of Lima, Ecuador’s intriguing capital of Quito and the Chilean capital of Santiago, its colonial old town and skyscrapers dwarfed by the epic, snow-covered Andes.
Naturally, our holidays in South America spread their net beyond the continent’s great cities. Latin America’s historic and natural jewels also come to the fore. Cue Machu Picchu, the ‘Lost City of the Incas’, which clings to a cloud-wreathed mountaintop and has been voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Also unmissable are serene Lake Titicaca, the world’s highest navigable lake, and the jaw-dropping Iguassu Falls – a crescent of crashing cascades nestled in the sultry rainforest between Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay.
Last but not least, our tours to South America present you with the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of cruises to the Galapagos Islands. Fly from Quito to marvel at the rare and wonderful creatures that roam free on these volcanic Pacific islands, from blue-footed boobies to fur seals, penguins and giant tortoises.
