More About South America
You can be assured of an unforgettable adventure when you visit South America. Much of the continent is still untouched by development, so you can still discover wonderfully remote places. With dense Amazonian rainforests, expanses of desert, soaring mountain peaks, and icy glaciers, South America is a diverse part of the world which also has a fascinating history and a colourful culture with many indigenous tribes still carrying on with their day-to-day traditions. A luxurious cruise or stay in a comfortable eco-lodge is a fantastic way to see some of the stunning Peruvian Amazon. The sprawling tropical wetlands of Pantanal cover over 54,000 square miles and are bursting with wildlife including jaguars, monkeys, anteaters, and over 600 species of bird. Brazil borders almost every country in South America and is only slightly smaller than the United States. With spectacular beaches, natural wonders, and samba rhythms it‘s no surprise that Brazil never fails to charm and delight its visitors. In the dense rainforest, you can stay in a jungle lodge or explore on a guided hike or boat excursion. In complete contrast, the vibrant and sun-kissed city of Rio boasts the world-famous sights of the imposing Christ the Redeemer statue, Copacabana beach, and Sugarloaf Mountain. Music is a huge part of the culture here and the seemingly never-ending samba beat will become the theme tune of your luxury holiday. Peru is an enchanting place and no trip here is complete without visiting Machu Picchu, one of the best-preserved Inca cities in the world. You can reach the site by train or take the infamous Inca Trail trek. Argentina has the mighty Iguazu Falls, the largest waterfall system in the world and it is truly astounding! Wine buffs will appreciate the wine-tasting tours in Mendoza and this area also has a great selection of luxury spa hotels and top-quality restaurants. Ecuador and The Galapagos are wonderful destinations well, with Ecuador having emerald forests, white sand beaches, and turquoise lagoons. The Galapagos Islands are an unspoiled paradise teaming with endemic species making it an ideal holiday choice for nature lovers.
