Are you an avid adventurer or explorer? Well South America is the place for you! From tropical Brazil to the Andes, adventure can be found in every corner of the continent. Embark on a land adventure, biking in Ecuador, hiking along the Inca Trail in Peru, or on one of the other challenging trails to Machu Picchu! Trek around river valleys, and observe the ancient Incan ruins as you continue on this steep and beautiful path. For scenic, mountainous views, trek through the Peruvian Andes Mountains. The Salkantay trek will take you to Machu Picchu through the challenging Salkantay Pass. Or, take a journey to the Marble Caves of Chile, an emerging world-class tourism destination unlike any other place on earth!

If you’re looking for a splash, opt for water sports in Argentina or Chile with white water rafting. The Dique Cabra Corral near Salta is perfect for adrenaline junkies looking to be challenged by fierce currents of nature. If you were looking for a more soothing “splash,” deep dive into Brazil’s Bonito region, near the Pantanal for a day of snorkeling. There is so much wildlife to see in the nearby Pantanal too.

In the southern hemisphere, winter starts in June, so pack your bags for Chile and Argentina’s ski resorts! The powder that drops on these mountain tops is looking for some shredding! No matter if you’re a skier or snowboarder, you’ll all be able to agree that there are some fantastic slopes in South America.

The places mentioned above are only a few of the destinations in South America that hold adventure. You can also rappel at Iguassu Falls, hike in Patagonia, ice trek through the glaciers, or horseback ride through the Pantanal. There is a South America tour for every type and level of adventurer.

FAQs about South America Adventure Tours

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

What are the best South American adventure tours?

For trekking, South America’s most famous trek is the Inca Trail. There are many others too, like the Lost City Trek in Colombia and the W Trek in Patagonia. White water rafting is possible in many places including the Lake District in Argentina, the Sacred Valley in Peru and San Gil in Colombia to name just a few. Few places are more spectacular for paragliding than Rio de Janeiro. Mountain biking is possible in many places and zip-lining too. Just let us know your interests and we’ll put together a customized South America adventure tour.

Which is the best destination in South America for an active vacation?

There are many options, but Peru is hard to beat. In a relatively small area around Cusco, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu, it is possible to trek in the Andes (either the Inca Trail or one of the many other treks), go white water rafting, mountain bike between Inca Ruins, horse-ride in the Sacred Valley and zip-line with mountain views. Combine this with a trip to the Amazon Rainforest where you can fish for piranhas, kayak and even tree climb and you have the perfect destination for a South America adventure tour.

What are the best treks in South America?

Treks in the Andes are amongst the best treks in South America if not the world. Patagonia should appeal to anyone who likes wide open spaces and dramatic views. In El Chalten there are numerous day hikes. Torres del Paine has both day hikes and famous treks like the W Trek which takes several days, staying in simple mountain huts each night. Peru and Bolivia have fantastic high altitude treks, some are famous and well worn trails like the Inca Trail and Salkantay, others are well off the beaten track. Colombia has some great treks too, including the trek to the Lost City ascending over a couple of days to the spectacular ruins in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. For a truly off the beaten path trek, consider hiking to the Kaieteur Falls in Guyana – a trek of several days through the rainforest.
