South America is a vast and geographically spectacular region, ranging from uncharted Amazon jungle to icecapped Andean peaks, and the fjords of Patagonia to the bone-dry Atacama Desert.

There’s prehistoric history in Peru, older even than Machu Picchu, culture in abundance among the bustling plazas and wines bars of Buenos Aires and opulent luxury in Rio. There’s adventure on the Amazon River or the Bolivian salt flats or beach bliss on Brazil’s thousands of kilometres of coastline.

Recent tailor-made Lightfoot tours include extraordinary cruises through the Galapagos Islands and into the heart of dramatic Antarctica! Contact Olie, our South American Travel Designer, to find our more about private luxury tours.
