The Galapagos Islands. Machu Picchu. Torres del Paine National Park. Each of these world-renowned travel destinations deserves its place as the cornerstone for your South American sojourn—but while you’re there, we’d hate for you to miss the Mindo Cloud Forest. Or Lake Titicaca. Or an up-and-coming vineyard.
We will help you cover your bucket list goals, then whisk you off the tourist trail to round out your itinerary with off the beaten path sorts of destinations and experiences. In Ecuador, shop the markets of Otavalo, hike in Cotopaxi National Park, and explore the Andean cloud forest. In Peru, paddle out to the floating reed islands of Lake Titicaca, follow the food trail to Lima, and plunge into Peru’s astonishingly biodiverse Amazon. In Argentina and Chile, anchor your adventure with wine tasting, glaciers, fabled fly fishing, and top-ten-list hiking. All along the way enjoy asados, tango shows, artisan studios, cooking and pottery classes, out-of-the-way Incan ruins, rafting, surfing, biking, and hiking. You’re definitely going to need a bigger bucket.
