Welcome to South America

South America is a colorful mosaic of cultures and landscapes, a continent with which it’s surprisingly easy to fall in love. Feel the influence of Europe, Asia and Africa, whether you’re exploring the rain forest of the Amazon, experiencing Carnival in Rio de Janeiro or backpacking through the Torres del Paine.

Go wine tasting in Argentina and Chile. Gape at powerful Iguazu Falls. Meet the unfettered wildlife of the Galapagos Islands. Stroll through 18th-century colonial towns, where gorgeous churches line cobblestone streets. Sway to the beat of Colombian salsa and Brazilian samba. Listen for steel pan drumming in Guyana and tango in Buenos Aires. Horseback ride across the Pampas with the rugged gauchos who call it their home.

Whether your sense of adventure means mountain biking in the Andes, walking on an icy blue glacier, eating your way through Buenos Aires or walking through a cloud forest, South America has it to offer.
