Top 12 Nature & Wildlife Tours

Get outdoors and explore South America’s natural wonders: the Amazon Rainforest, the Pantanal Wetlands, Patagonia’s glaciers, idyllic beaches, the Galapagos Islands, and more. South America is home to the Amazon Rainforest, often nicknamed “The World’s Lungs.” But there are other natural wonders to behold throughout South America: go bird-watching in the Pantanal, see penguins in Patagonia, look for wildlife while snorkeling in the Galapagos – you name it, South America has it.

Would you rather spend your time in nature rather than the busy, bustling city? Do you dream of getting outdoors as soon as you’re done with work for the day? Take a look at our nature-inspired South America tours. It is hard to find a more perfect place to see the natural wonders of the world. From the Amazon Rainforest to the Pantanal Wetlands, to the glaciers of Patagonia, to the idyllic beaches of Brazil, and the extremely diverse Galapagos Islands, South America has a variety of natural highlights just waiting to be explored.

Go on a horseback riding adventure through the lush wetlands of the Pantanal, home to an abundance of diverse wildlife. Make sure you have your binoculars handy so that you can spot baby capybaras, flora and fauna, caiman, and various bird species.

For estancia excursions, a caiman night safari, colorful lagoons, and the Ibare and Mamore Rivers head to Bolivia. Cross remote tributaries, lagoons, and beaches in the little-known part of the Amazon on this 7-day tour. Most of your time will be spent cruising the Bolivian Amazon river. Watch as the sun rises and sets on the horizon, listen to the sounds of the jungle, and keep your eyes open for the wildlife that’s just outside your window.

If you would rather see some different wildlife, such as penguins, head to Patagonia for a bird watching tour. This bird watching tour takes you to the Puerto Deseado region, a must-see spot for nature & wildlife enthusiasts, looking to find penguins, marine life, and various bird species in Patagonia. In only 3-days, you can explore the Jaramillo Petrified Woods, the Cabo Blanco penguin rookery, and the beautiful, sandy, beaches.

Effortlessly combine a trip visiting the natural wonders of the world, with romantic cities, or historical indigenous sites. SouthAmerica.travel’s ability to customize any tour makes it simple to tailor to any explorer’s needs.

FAQs about South America Culture & Nature Tours

Thinking about a South America culture and nature trip? Here’s a list of frequently asked questions we often hear from our guests.

Where can I see wildlife in South America?

There are plenty of choices. Some of the top destinations in South America for wildlife include the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador, the Pantanal in Brazil and the Amazon Rainforest. There are several places where whale watching tours are available, and other less-known destinations for wildlife such as the Ibera Wetlands in Argentina and Los Llanos in Colombia.

What are the best archaeology tours in South America?

There are lots of options, but Peru should probably be top of your list. If you’d like to see archaeology in action, the north of Peru is an excellent choice as there are sites there that are still being excavated and discovered, such as Moche, Chimu and Chachapoyan sites. Kuelap is a must-see for archaeology fans. All these places can be combined with a visit to famous sites such as Machu Picchu and ruins in the Sacred Valley. Alternatively, consider another South American country like Colombia which has several fascinating sites including San Agustin and Tierradentro.

How many wonders of the world are in South America?

Well, that depends on who you ask! Machu Picchu is named as one of the New 7 Wonders of the world, so is the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro. The Iguazu Falls and Amazon Rainforest are considered two of the New 7 Wonders of Nature and La Paz, Bolivia is one of the New 7 Wonders Cities. The Galapagos Islands have been named one of the 7 Wonders of the Underwater World. The American Society of Civil Engineers has named the Itaipu Dam, near Iguazu Falls are one of the 7 Wonders of the Modern World.
