Touring South America
There are tours available that include as much of South America as is realistic for any period of time – begin in mega-diverse Venezuela before heading into so-hot-right-now Colombia. From there it’s down through Ecuador and into Peru for the aforementioned Inca Trail and some incredible food, before heading to the otherworldly salt flats in Bolivia and the Amazon Rainforest. Next up is Argentina, the life and culture of Buenos Aires contrasting with the stunning expanses of Patagonia as you cross into Chile. After that there’s nowhere to go but back up through Uruguay and into legendary Brazil.
Brazil represents the other kind of tour you might take in South America: a single country in depth, seeing everything it has to offer and becoming intimately acquainted. In Brazil alone there’s wild Rio de Janeiro, bustling Brasilia, and awesome Sao Paulo, not to mention a visit to the Amazon basin. You could spend six months there alone.
However you choose to tour South America, it’s guaranteed to be an adventure you’ll never forget.
