If you are looking for an adventurous holiday which will offer a diverse and exciting range of activities, Latin America will not disappoint.
A trip into the Amazon is an experience in itself, where you can visit indigenous communities, try your hand at piranha fishing or spend a few nights on a traditional riverboat. In contrast, the Andes mountain range provides a rugged, mostly uninhabited landscape that is most famous for the Inca Trek. This remote 5 day hike takes visitors through verdant cloud forests, across steep snow dusted valleys and past turquoise blue lakes before ending at the mysterious ruins of Machu Picchu. For a delightful mix of activities and relaxation, the Lake District, spanning Chile and Argentina offers world class white water rafting on the Futaleufú River, stunning horse trekking, fishing, kayaking and the chance to climb snow-capped volcanoes. The whole area is peppered with tranquil blue lakes, enchanted forests and splendid hot springs that provide welcome relief after a long day exploring. The dry and barren Atacama Desert may seem an unlikely place for an adventure, but with sandboarding, dune buggies, lunar landscapes and some of the best stargazing in on the planet, it is certainly not to be overlooked. Unimaginable beauty awaits visitors who make the long journey to the tip of the southern cone of South America to Patagonia. A mecca for outdoorsy types, this unspoilt and astonishingly scenic part of the world will allow visitors to immerse themselves in one of the last true wildernesses on earth. Torres del Paine National Park and El Chalten are a paradise for trekking, with the ‘W Trek’ being the most popular trail. In Calafate take a boat ride to the face of the breath taking Perito Moreno glacier, or for an alternative view trek across the top of the solid ice peaks.
