Wondrous Place

LATIN AMERICA

Remarkable landscapes, culture, wildlife and cuisine

Stretching over a huge latitudinal range, its little wonder that Latin America displays such geographical diversity and contrast. Here, you’ll discover Patagonia’s icefields, the sky-piercing mountains of the high Andes and the endless grass plains of the pampas contrasting with the colossal floodplains of Brazil’s Pantanal and the world’s largest rainforest and greatest river in the Amazon. Chile’s Atacama is the highest and driest desert while the Galapagos Islands, Iguazu Falls and the stunning coral reefs and palm fringed beaches of the Caribbean coastline offer astonishing watery wonders. The magnificent range of landscapes are full of unique cultural surprises too including the ancient civilisations and ruins of the Incas and Mayans, the mysterious history of Easter Island, a thriving gaucho heritage, the colonial colour of Cartagena and the avant-garde restaurants of Lima. Whether you’re in to malbec or mountaineering, South America will astonish and delight!

DESTINATIONS YOU'LL LOVE

Argentina

THE LAND OF THE GAUCHO

Argentina

Stretching nearly 3,500-kilometres to the very southern tip of South America, Argentina is the land of the tango, gauchos, polo, malbec, glacier-topped mountains and perfectly grilled steaks. Argentina’s cultural heritage is the perfect partner to its natural beauty which ranges from tropical rainforests to open ‘pampas’ grasslands, icy glaciers and scorched deserts.

Brazil

A fiesta of flora and fauna

Brazil

Brazil makes up almost 50% of the continent and borders every South American nation except for Ecuador and Chile – it is vast! From the thundering falls of Iguaçu to the Amazon and the Atlantic, it buzzes with festival spirit. Known for its beautiful, fun-loving people, this immense country knows how to celebrate life!

Chile

LAND OF FIRE AND ICE

Chile

Stretched out longitudinally along the Pacific coast, Chile is packed with phenomenal scenery, niche biospheres and geological idiosyncrasies. Together, the world’s highest volcano, the driest desert, rainforests and hanging glaciers have all created striking landscapes, each inspiring unforgettable adventures.

Colombia

Resurgent Latin America

Colombia

It is often said that in Colombia you get five destinations for the price of one: the Pacific Coast, the Andes, the Amazon, the eastern plains and the Caribbean. Across the country this diversity has given rise to one of the most impressive and innovative gastronomic scenes of the world as modern chefs turn natural abundance and rare ingredients upside down.

Ecuador & Galapagos

GALAPAGOS, AMAZON AND ANDES

Ecuador & Galapagos

Amazonian rainforests, Andean peaks, foggy cloud forests, the Galápagos Islands and a rich indigenous heritage – all can be found in Ecuador. Split down the middle by a chain of snow-capped volcanoes, the mighty Amazon lies to the east while cloud forests, an untouched coastline and, of course, the awe-inspiring Galápagos Islands lie to the west.

Peru

Mystically Enchanting

Peru

High Andean peaks where majestic condors soar, steamy rainforests of the Amazon basin, nearly limitless coastal destinations, vast deep-blue lakes and the almost mythical Machu Picchu, all this and more can be found in Peru.

Exellent and wonderful, reaching way above expectations.
