South America

With 12 sovereign countries, the Amazon Rainforest, the Andes and the world’s driest desert, this continent offers a truly unforgettable palette of adventures. You can’t beat swimming with penguins on a Galapagos Cruise or backpacking in Colombia’s Sierra Nevada del Cocuy mountains. The Cordillera Blanca Trek in Peru will take you well off the tourist track while the Atacama Desert in Chile will astound you with its beauty.
