South America offers some of the world's best trekking territory, from the icy glaciers of Patagonia, to the tropical rainforests of Peru and Ecuador. Read on to find out more...

Whether you want to plan a dedicated trekking holiday in South America, or you'd just like to fit in a couple of opportunities to stretch your legs with the odd day trek here and there, we can help you plan an itinerary which makes sure you're in the right places to do just that.

Although many of the best treks in South America are high-altitude affairs, in most cases the terrain isn't necessarily all that challening, it's just that you need to make sure you are acclimatised correctly. By planing an itinerary which takes that into account, we can make sure that your South America treks go smoothly and you're in the right condition to just thoroughly enjoy it all.

We've listed some of our most popular South America treks here, but if you'd like to plan a trek and don't see it anywhere on our website, then just get in touch...

Treks in South America

It's fair to say that Argentina, Peru and Ecuador are the three biggest trekking destinations in South America, but we also have some fantastic South America treks available in other countries which might not be as obvious. Some just offer an interesting way of experiencing a city, like our Dois Irmaos Trail in Rio, but most of our destinations also offer some more challenging treks as well.

From the spectacular Chapada Diamantina in Brazil or the Royal Range in Bolivia, to a superb 4-day trek through the mountains to Ciudad Perdida in Colombia, just get in touch with us if you're looking for something a little different...
