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.
What will you get to see in Patagonia?
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.
There are numerous aspects which you need to keep in mind for your South America Tours. This location is surely one of the best travelling destinations on the earth and to make it your best experienced one, we, Forward Travel share some crucial travel tips.
The Primary Requirements –
- For your South America Holidays, we suggest you carry light clothes. Breathable t-shirts and quick dry pants/shorts are a good option to stay cool and also look cool.
- As for the shoes, make sure that they are comfortable, durable and worn in so that your feet have adjusted to them.
- We also suggest that you dress in layers. Temperatures can change drastically. Mornings are pleasant, afternoons can be sweltering and evenings can see rainfall. So, our advice is to take clothes which make you adjust accordingly. Patagonia and the mountain areas are unpredictably changeable, so take a light weight rain jacket to be prepared.
Other Travel Requisites we recommend –
Regardless of whether you travel by cruise or by flight, we advise you to bring along:
- A copy of your travel insurance policy.
- Passport along with a photo and digital copy.
- Headphones (as we know delays can happen at times).
- Eye Mask and some snacks.
- Sunscreen, aspirin medicines, bugs repellent, altitude tablets.
- Along with this, you can also include items such as an e-reader, collapsible/reusable water bottle, hat, flip-flops, and some US Dollars as well as local currency.
- A multi-socket power-board is a great help when you have multiple devices to charge, and an International adaptor is perfect when travelling to more than one country.
- A cork screw is another essential item for wine lovers. Only 10% of South American wine is screw capped, so a corkscrew is very handy.
These items are equally important and practical when you travel to South America. So we suggest you include them on your packing list too.
- Pick up a business card from your hotel front desk. It is the easiest way to make sure taxi drivers know where to take you back to at the end of the day.
- Also ask the front desk for a map and circle the hotel location on it. Make it very easy to get your bearings and find your way home on foot.
