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 4×4 wildlife safari in the Pantanal, bike in Ecuador, zoom on a zodiac to the Marble Caves, hike 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.
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.
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, learn to herd sheep and live life like a cowboy at an Estancia, ice trek through the glaciers, piranha fish in the Amazon or climb a mountain in Ecuador. There is an adventure in South America for every type and level of adventurer.
