Luxurious Holidays in South America

Find the true South America on our tailor made journeys.

South America is a fantastic feast for travellers offering diverse and beautiful ingredients that will delight your ‘travel buds’.

Natural beauty is found everywhere.

Wildlife abounds in The Amazon, sprawling across Brazil, Ecuador, Peru, Colombia and Bolivia. The Pantanal in Brazil offers even more wildlife and some say better viewing, and is the best place to spot the elusive jaguar.

The Galapagos Islands is a smorgasbord of nature both above and below the water. The Falkland Islands are a real delight for nature lovers, remote and pristine, with surprising white sand beaches home to multiple penguin species.

Patagonia in southern Chile and Argentina, is majestic, and home to the Torres Del Paine NP, recently named the 8th wonder of the world. Perito Moreno glacier is a feast for your senses with its beauty and the thunderous crashes echoing as ice falls into the lake below.

Ancient cultures are fascinating, highlighted with the Inca treasure of Machu Picchu. Whether you walk the trail or take the train the sight will leave you breathless.

The cities also impress with Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires beating to the Latin rhythms of Samba and Tango. Compare the sophisticated style of Buenos Aires with nature’s beauty of Rio (including the people) and then decide which you prefer.

Discover the coffee triangle in Colombia then head to Caribbean coast and lose time just being in Cartagena, or chill on the beach in Tayrona.

Cross the Uyuni Salt flats in Bolivia for spectacular landscapes seemingly borrowed from another planet and marvel as the clear skies in the Atacama Desert makes the distant snow-capped volcanoes seem touchable.

There is so much to discover, your first trip will give you a taste for it, and you’ll want a few more to satisfy your travel appetite.

We know it well, and love it, so we can find the best parts for your to discover.

What our travellers say
Here are some of our favourite places in South America
ARGENTINA
ARGENTINA

Nature’s wonders lure people to Argentina, and her beauties are very impressive: Iguazu Falls, Bariloche and Perito Moreno Glacier are a pretty impressive trio, but don’t under estimate the sophistication of Buenos Aires, the wilderness of Patagonia, and make sure to leave room for a tango show or football game. Whether you venture north to the astounding Iguazu Falls, or south to the magical vastness of Patagonia, you are sure to be impressed.

BOLIVIA
BOLIVIA

Wild and diverse are the words for Bolivia. Nature lovers will feast on the high altitude highlights of Lake Titicaca and the sublime Uyuni salt flats. History and culture buffs will be engaged by the rich traditions in South America’s most indigenous country. Whatever draws you here, Bolivia is definitely going to be a High-light of your trip.

BRAZIL
BRAZIL

Brazil’s beauty and vibrancy is hard to match. It really has a bounty of nature’s finest work, (including the locals) and man’s architectural masterpieces. Search for elusive wildlife in virgin forests and waterways in the Amazon or Pantanal. Lose yourself in cobbled lane ways in Salvador, shake to the Samba rhythms in the cities, or find your own paradise along the 8,000km of coastline. The biggest country in South America really is a show off, so prepare to be impressed!

CHILE
CHILE

A rich and diverse country of inspirational landscapes, Chile is a traveller's paradise, and we love it! The stark Atacama Desert gives way to rich wine lands and vibrant cities before morphing to lush rain forests and mountains of Patagonia, and beyond to Antarctica. There are volcanoes to climb, cultures to meet, and hidden valleys to wander. We want to share our love of Chile with you, using our extensive experience, knowledge and enthusiasm. Our goal is to make sure you love Chile as much as we do.

COLOMBIA
COLOMBIA

This jam-packed country nestled amongst the Andes has much more than just The Galapagos Islands to offer and is definitely a must see for any true traveller.

GALAPAGOS ISLANDS
GALAPAGOS ISLANDS

The Galapagos is e a haven for wildlife. They are fascinating in their diversity and the way the plants and wildlife have adapted to each unique island. Wildlife is abundant, and fearless, providing up close encounters above and below the water. The famous marine iguanas, sea lions, blue footed boobies and Frigate birds are found on most islands. Best of all you can choose to stay on land or on water

PATAGONIA
