South America Holidays for 2016-2017
Every country in South America has something different to offer, so have a look at each of our destinations to see what you could make part of your holiday to South America. But remember, everything we do is 100% tailor-made so we can combine aspects from any of our holidays in South America to give you the exact itinerary you're looking for.
Peru is the most popular destination of all our South America holidays, and it's not hard to see why. Breathtaking lost Inca cities like Machu Picchu, the natural beauty of Colca Canyon and the Cordillera Blanca, and the amazing wildlife of the Amazon, Peru has it all. And that's before we even start on the amazing food...
Chile is a country of huge contrasts, from the snow-capped peaks of Torres del Paine and icy fjords of Patagonia to the arid moonscapes of the Atacama Desert. Add in the beautiful Lake District, the mysteries of Easter Island and culture-packed cities like Santiago and Valparaiso and you can see why holidays to Chile are a real winner...
Argentina has just about everything you could want in a holiday. Marvel at some of the world's most stunning scenery, including the beautiful mountains of Patagonia and the spectacle of the Iguazu Falls; experience the culture and colour of fabulous Buenos Aires and enjoy some of the best food and wine in the world...
Whether you're wanting to relax on beautiful tropical beaches or party at the Rio Carnival, marvel at natural spectacles like Iguazu Falls and the Chapada Diamantina or get close to the amazing wildlife of the Pantanal wetlands and the Amazon rainforest, holidays to South America's biggest country are guaranteed to please...
If you're looking for the real South America, look no further. At the same time one of the most challenging and most rewarding places to tour in South America, Bolivia is a unique and beautiful place to visit, from the still waters of Lake Titicaca to the otherworldly landscapes of the Salar de Uyuni salt flats.
Considering it's one of South America's smallest countries, it's amazing what you can pack into holidays to Ecuador. Explore the Amazon jungle, climb some of the continent's most impressive mountains, or take the infamous railway journey down the Devil's Nose... And that's all before your cruise to the Galapagos Islands...
Could this be the most exciting destination in South America? Colombia has arguably the continent's best beaches, and everything from Amazon jungle to snow-capped mountains besides. Trek to lost prehistoric cities and kick back in picture-postcard colonial towns: you'll find that holidays in Colombia really do have it all...
Of course, there's no reason at all to restrict your tour of South America to just a single country. Many of our holidays combine two or more countries, whether it's visiting both Chilean and Argentina Patagonia, or combining a tour of Machu Picchu with a cruise to the fantastic Galapagos Islands.
Tailor-made by the UK Experts
Of course, the holidays to South America on this page are just the start. It's your holiday, and we think you should be able to make your own choices about the itinerary, the hotels, and every other aspect of your trip, so what we'd really like to do is work with you to plan your very own tailor-made holiday in South America.

With years of experience in planning holidays in South America, we can help put together even the most complicated itineraries - in fact, although we'll probably regret saying this: the more complex it is, the more we enjoy it!
