South America Activity Holidays

South America offers something for everyone. Whether you are looking for extreme sport or trekking, relaxing on a sandy beach, shop in cosmopolitan or ancient cities, romantic honeymooning or a family trip into the Amazon, it has it all!  This is a continent that will have you returning to discover more time and time again.  In South America you can trek, mountain-climb, walk, sand-board, zip-wire, boat, dive and horse ride all whilst discovering the beauty of this great continent.
This really is an activity everyone can take part in, just choose your path and mountain appropiately.  South America has much more to offer than Macchu Picchu, though with rumours of this being closed off to tourists in the next decade, you should hurry to climb it whilst you can!   For the more serious trekkers amongst you, few things can beat the sights you will come across in Patagonia.

There is nothing like riding through the Andes, if you love horses then this is truly a once in a lifetime feeling.  Whether you are in Argentina, land of the Gauchos, in the Peruvian Andes or the Chilian Lake District riding in this continent is unbeatable.  English saddles aren't as popular as the Gaucho American saddles but can be found, just remember that these horses speak a different language!

Our best horseriding hotels

Much of the joy of travel is the experience of other cultures and traditions; take time to get to know and understand the local heritage of your chosen country. Cultural tourism is a tricky thing to accomplish well, but if it is done well it is incredibly worthwhile. The opportunity to interact on a personal level with the people whose country you are visiting will enhance your experience no end.

Our favourite cultural experience Hotels

South America offers some of the best diving in the world with one of the greatest ranges of sights to see.  You might see whales and seals in the cold waters of Argentina's Valdes Peninsula, turtles and mantas in Brazil's Abrolhos Marine Park and even hammerhead sharks in the Galapagos.

Our best diving hotels

Driving down the Amazonian rivers and through its jungles on a boat is an unmissable experience.  Riverboating is a uniquely Amazonian experience and a great way to see wildlife along the way.
