Travel to South America, a land of mystery, legend and exquisite beauty.
Consider a region that includes such archaeological treasures as the fabled Incan city of Machu Picchu and Easter Island’s magnificent statues, the origins of which may never fully be understood. This vast continent boasts unique and diverse habitats, including the volcanic Galapagos Islands, majestic Iguassu Falls, the icescapes of Patagonia, the great Atacama Desert, and the spectacular spine that is the Andes Mountain range. But it doesn’t stop there. At the heart of South America lies the Amazon rainforest; the realm of one of the greatest rivers and richest ecological zones on our planet.
Add to this dynamic mix sophisticated cities, award-winning wineries, authentic cultural exchanges, luxury resorts, and off-the-beaten-track adventures, and you begin to understand why the last few decades have witnessed an explosive growth in South American travel and tours.
Whether you are looking for the high adventure of trekking glaciers and exploring ruins or the more sedate pleasures of shopping chic boutiques and staying at historic estancias, you are certain to find the ideal vacation experience with Big Five’s luxury South America tours and travel adventures.
