This vast cruise area stretches from the equatorial tropics to Antarctica and offers unforgettable experiences. A bucket list destination is the Galápagos Islands, home to species of wildlife found nowhere else in the world. Landmark cities include Buenos Aires which is home to the steamy tango and Rio de Janeiro overlooked by Sugarloaf Mountain. Clients can also follow in the wake of famous explorers through the wilderness of Patagonia and Antarctica.
The UNESCO-listed ancient Inca capital of Peru is a living museum of Incan and Spanish architecture and narrow atmospheric streets. Worth visiting in its own right, it’s also the starting point for trips to fabled Machu Picchu Inca trail and the Sacred Valley.
The capital and largest city of Chile occupies a dramatic location in a valley surrounded by the Andes. It has distinct neighbourhoods to explore, including the historic centre with grand old buildings, bohemian Bellavista which is at the heart of the foodie scene and the cultural Lastarria district.
Combine a land-stay in Brazil, Peru or Ecuador with a cruise on the Amazon river which is accessible from all three countries.
