South America is undoubtedly one of the most passionate areas on earth, with a buzzing scene made up of seductive dance, historical landmarks and exquisite cuisine. Our range of immersive South America tours will help you embrace this fiery way of life, as you learn to dance the Argentine Tango, savour the flavours of the churrascaria and learn about the history surrounding the continent’s struggle for independence from Spain and Portugal. In each nation, the locals will welcome you with open arms and help you get right to the heart of your destination.
Most of South America’s population lives around the coasts of the continent, in major cities such as Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro and Montevideo. This makes ocean cruising an ideal option, providing you with a unique opportunity to visit a range of popular destinations.
It also paves the way to access the mesmerising Amazon Rainforest – which is home to 10% of all of the earth’s known living species. To provide a sense of perspective, this accounts for more than 40,000 species of plant, 427 mammals, 1,300 birds, 378 reptiles and 400 amphibians. But the Amazon is not the only natural landmark you can experience, with the Andes mountain range and Patagonia National Park also worth visiting.
As you make your way down the continent, the warm, humid regions relent to the icy extremities of Chile and Argentina. This means that South America can offer varied landscapes in the form of lush rainforests, raging rivers, giant glaciers and impending peaks. Our definitive list of South America cruises and land-based tours is sure to whet your appetite for adventure.
