With its wealth of natural wonders, ancient civilisations and captivating cultures, when it comes to touring, South America is emerging as a 'must visit' destination, thanks in part to a formidable reputation for the quality of its viniculture and gastronomy. We challenge you to find a better steak outside of Argentina, or a better 'new world' white wine than from Chile's Santa Cruz region. South America's reputation for the finer things in life is well deserved. Think tango, polo, those wines again, astoundingly beautiful natural habitats on an epic scale (hello, the Amazon River and its accompanying jungle) - not forgetting palate-tingling food, world-class heritage sites and museums and excellent hotels.
Elegant Buenos Aires, described as the 'Paris of the south', is at once buzzing and laid back, while outside of Argentina's cities you'll find unspoiled pampas, itching to be stomped by the thundering hooves of either gaucho steed or polo pony. Brazil is synonymous with carnival and excess, the Galapagos with animal encounters like nowhere else on Earth. Easter Island is one of the world's most mysterious, not to mention far flung, destinations, while music reverberates through the continent like a heartbeat. This means dance: Peruvian trovas, Ecuadorian passilos, Venezualan merengue and the gut-wrenching, heart-rending rat-a-tat of the tango. The people will welcome you with the same exuberant gusto as their national dances imply, but if you tire of the bustling cities there's millions of acres of untapped natural beauty ready to give you some headspace, from the snow-capped Andes to the placid waters of the Amazon and the empty wilds of Patagonia. You can't help but fall in love with South America.
South America holds a wealth of natural wonders, ancient civilisations and captivating cultures. Distances in the Americas are on a grander scale than anything we are used to at home, but with the expertise of Abercrombie & Kent staff in our five offices in South America, spectacular sights are seamlessly knitted together and brought to life.

Chile is a land of extremes, from the surreal landscape of the Atacama, the world's driest desert, to the extraordinary Torres del Paine. Peru and Ecuador are an intriguing mix of Spanish colonial and hidden Inca traditions that come alive in the historical sites and legends recounted by the indigenous peoples. For those interested in Galapagos holidays you will find islands that take you to the home of plants and animals that can be found nowhere else.
Add to this the beaches and carnivals in Brazil, elegant 'Parisian' avenues and glamorous open-air cafés of Argentina's Buenos Aires.

Our recent awards
As far as the naturalist guides in the Galapagos are concerned, they were all excellent, each with their own distinctive characters and styles of presentation.I would give special praise to Martin and Rulli (first week) and Karina (second week). Their knowledge and enthusiasm were outstanding and they were particularly conscious and caring of members of the group who needed a little extra time walking or a little extra help. The ship's crew were all lovely and friendly but I would particularly mention Edison (barman/waiter) and Darcy (panga driver) both of whom went the extra mile in providing their respective services.
