Travel with South America Odyssey

We know all the locations and local customs intimately and are experts at building the best, most authentic, tailor-made itineraries for a South America adventure you will never forget. We work very closely with our clients to design and build completely bespoke, dream-fulfilling itineraries to these spectacular ancient lands; all the way from the dreamy Costa Rican coast, down to the Antarctic glaciers in the south.  

We only work with hotels and lodges we have personally visited and ones that have passed our rigorous checks. Our experts handpick the best guides, as we know that they can make all the difference between a really great holiday, and a trip of a lifetime. All of us return regularly to inspect hotels, seek out new excursions, try new restaurants and generally have a great time under the guise of 'work research'... Essentially, you are safe in the knowledge that your trip is in the hands of South America experts.
