Discover great South America travels, destinations and adventures
From the rugged peaks of the Andes Mountains to the stunning rainforests of the Amazon, South America is home to many natural wonders that make it the perfect location for an adventure trip. Among the most popular and best places to visit in South America are Chile, Argentina, Peru and Brazil but you can find adventure travel throughout the continent.
Located along the southwestern edge of South America and nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes Mountains, Chile stretches 2,670 miles from north to south and includes a diverse range of landscapes. At the northern end you can explore the Atacama Desert, which is the driest desert in the world, by hiking, bicycling and horseback riding through the arid land. Head south to find the remote wilderness of Patagonia, where you can go fly fishing in the mountain rivers and lakes.
The vast area of Patagonia continues into southern Argentina, where you can find impressive glaciers, expansive plains and lots of wildlife. With so much to explore either by hiking or horseback, it’s no wonder Patagonia is often considered one of the best places to visit in South America.
When it comes to adventure vacations and South America travel, Brazil is a must. From the Amazon rainforest to the 4,650 mile of coastline, Brazil has all the makings of an adventure trip to remember. Try sea kayaking in Costa Verde or visit the Pantanal to see the largest concentration of wildlife in the Americas. Visit Iguazu Falls on its border with Argentina for a breathtaking experience.
Many people travel to Peru to view the ancient Incan city of Machu Picchu and the surrounding areas of Cusco and Valle Sagrado. On this adventure trip you can explore the ruins of Machu Picchu, mountain bike in Cusco and see llamas in the Andes Mountains.
