South America Holidays
South America holidays
South America is a vast and remarkable mosaic of climates, landscapes and people. Almost twice the size of Europe. It’s most prominent physical feature is the soaring snow-capped peaks of the Andes mountains, the longest mountain range which extends from Venezuela down to Argentina and Chile.
South America is one of the world’s most mysterious, surreal and exciting destinations. Among the many wonders are the world’s largest river and rainforest, the highest waterfall, driest desert, southernmost town and the highest capital city. Whilst the continent as a whole shares a common history based on its original indigenous populations, European colonization, slavery and immigration, all of the countries also possess their own unique delights and gems.
Holidays In South America
South America’s stunning array of wildlife inhabits mountains, tropical rainforests, cloudforests, deserts and grasslands. The vast Amazon basin preserves a wealth of birds, reptiles, mammals and insects. Brazil’s Pantanal region, the world’s largest wetland and the immense plains of Los Llanos in Venezuela are two of the continents’s best spots for wildlife-watching with extraordinary concentrations of exotic birds and mammals. The astonishing wildlife of the Galápagos Islands played a crucial role in Charles Darwin’s theories on evolution.
Marvel at the dramatic glaciers and fjords of Patagonia and the granite-like mountains of Torres del Paine National Park in Chile, join the samba-dancing crowds at the carnival in Brazil, explore the trails around the Iguazu waterfalls on the border of 3 countries, watch the tango at a milonga in Argentina and visit the lost Inca city of Machu Picchu in Peru. It also boasts the vibrant and exciting cities of Rio de Janeiro, Quito, Salvador and Buenos Aires.
About two-thirds of South America near the equator or the Tropic of Capricorn, travellers can expect a tropical or subtropical climate all year round. Further south you’ll find the continent very cold between April and October.
