Nestled between the Caribbean, the South Pacific, and the South Atlantic Oceans, South America is the wilder of the Americas and a continent that keeps on giving. Andean peaks, Amazonian rainforest, Patagonian glaciers, Incan ruins, colonial towns, white-sand beaches and vertiginous nightlife: the wonders set the stage for incredible adventures.
The Amazon is home to the world’s biggest rainforest and the largest river, the Andes is the highest mountain range outside Asia, many remote islands (Galapagos Islands, Easter Island and Fernando de Noronha), heavenly beaches, wide deserts such as the picturesque Atacama, glacial landscapes (Patagonia & Tierra del Fuego), the world’s tallest waterfall in Venezuela and one of the largest waterfalls, Iguaçu Falls, on the border of Argentina and Brazil, as well as several other breathtaking natural attractions.
