If you are looking for a holiday with a difference, consider a train journey or luxury cruise in Latin America.
Being such a huge continent, Latin America holds a wealth of unusual experiences which can combine to make the trip of a lifetime. If you are considering a cruise, the Galapagos will no doubt be the first option which comes to mind. With turquoise waters, unique wildlife and a pleasant climate, these fascinating islands are an excellent choice. However, there are also luxurious options to join a luxury ship on a river trip along the Amazon, taking in the magnificent rainforest and the wildlife that can be found there. Alternatively, cruise along the fjords of southern Chile, or for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, board an expedition ship all the way south to Antarctica – where icebergs and unusual wildlife are a nature lovers dream. For a more land-based experience, there are an ever-increasing amount of train journeys that can be enjoyed. The most famous of these is the Belmond Hiram Bingham train, which takes passengers to the famous citadel of Machu Picchu in Peru. This elegant locomotive is equipped with the most luxurious facilities, along with it’s sister train, the Andean Explorer.
