Sultry samba beats and untamed beauty

Whether you take an Amazonian jungle trek, a hike in the Argentine Andes or climb to Peru's Machu Picchu, a holiday in South American is something you'll never regret. For a vibrant, loud and life affirming big-city experience, lose yourself at Carnival in Rio de Janeiro and dance the tango in Buenos Aires. To get well off the beaten path, try communing with the varied and delightful nature of the Galapagos Islands, over 600 miles from Ecuador or find a very far-flung (and contested) corner of Britain on the Falkland Islands.

Then again you could always head to Venezuela to admire the world's highest waterfall - Angel Falls - then make your way to the coast for some stunning beaches. Of course, Brazil is the continent's most famous beach beauty and no chance to hit the sand here should be passed up. Remember Chile isn't always chilly but has some of the best ski resorts in the Southern Hemisphere. So when South America calls, don't miss answering.

For a holiday in one spot, Brazil and Argentina are fantastic destinations that will keep you enthralled. For a holiday that covers more ground though, a tour of South America is a fantastic way to see this continent. From the adventure of the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu in Peru to a once in a life time wildlife cruise around the Galapagos Islands, South America's diversity is best seen by following an expert. 

When to go

Reaching from Equator down to the Polar region, when to go to South America really depends on the region you want to visit. For specific recommendations, your consultant will be able to give advice. Generally speaking though, warm places like Brazil are ideal for visiting year round while tropical destinations like Peru are best experienced in the dry season from June to September. Weather aside, some highlights of the South American calendar include Rio Carnival which takes place in Rio de Janeiro during lent (usually February) each year, and New Years' Eve which is also sees Rio de Janeiro host one of the world's best celebrations.
