South America’s biodiversity and varied landscape are the ideal backdrop for adventurous and unique summer holidays. Though it is it winter in the southernmost regions, there are still a multitude of unchartered destinations waiting to be unearthed

Peru

If we were to define Peru in one word, it would be “adventure”. Whether you choose to walk the Inca trail to Machu Picchu and admire this UNESCO World Heritage Site, cruise on Lake Titicaca – the world’s highest navigable lake -, penetrating the dense Amazon or revelling in the beauty of Lima, Peru will spoil you for choice.

Brazil

It is a challenge not to fall in love with Brazil’s rhythmic Samba, soothing Bossa Nova, beaches and lush vegetation. There is no other way to describe Rio de Janeiro – nicknamed the Cidade Maravilhosa (Marvelous City) – than by the term exhilarating. The setting is remarkable: verdant mountains and rainforests and deep blue sea on each side of a vibrant city. Salvador’s Afro-Brazilian rhythms will have you dancing to the beat of the drums before plopping down on a secluded beach.

Ecuador and the Galapagos

From dense Amazonian rainforests to volcanoes, and Andean peaks to unspoilt tropical beaches, Ecuador may be amongst the smaller countries in South America, but what it lacks of in size, it more than makes up for it in amazingly diverse landscapes. The capital city, Quito is the gateway to the Andes whilst the Galapagos Islands possesses near mythical biodiversity.

If you are willing to brave the mild (and less so) winters in the southernmost regions, contact Lucy, our Latin America specialists who will happily recommend the best places to visit.
