Explore the adventure towns, wilderness and most scenic spots of South America.
Just the sound of it fills the stomach with butterflies: Patagonia. Sharp granite peaks impale the horizon and glaciers feed into the most perfect blue lakes imaginable. Visit the seemingly endless wilderness that’s become the hottest, and coldest, outdoor playground for adventurers world-over, beginning in the Chilean capital of Santiago and ending in cosmopolitan Buenos Aires. Combine the best of both worlds, hiking in the shadow of Mt Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre, conquering Villarica Volcano high above Pucon and ‘exploring’ the chocolate shops in Bariloche, not to mention the incredible food and wine scene throughout both these countries.

Just as a heads up before you book: this trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
