South America

Our favourite epic journeys in South America

Thick rainforest jungles, rugged deserts, dramatic peaks and underwater worlds make South America ideal for an epic once-in-a-lifetime type of holiday. Unique sights like the otherworldly salt flats of Bolivia and the majestic Iguasu Falls, and magical experiences like cruising the Amazon river and trekking on a glacier are definitely bucket-list worthy. Tick them off on a tailor-made holiday with Lightfoot Travel.

On a journey through Ecuador and Galapagos, start off in the culturally and historically rich city of Quito, continue through the lush Cloud Forest where land and sky merge, then head to the Galapagos Islands to marvel at the endemic wildlife species like turtles, marine iguanas and pink flamingos.

Hugging the west coast of the continent, Chile is a thin long country packed with diversity. Take in the entire country from Atacama Desert to the North, the snow-capped volcanoes of the Lake District, to the wilds of Patagonia in the far south.
