For many of us, that dream holiday is one that lets us escape the crowds, get back to nature and leave the modern world behind. In the remote and beautiful landscapes of South and Central America, you can do just that.
Patagonia, a wild and untamed region at the southern tip of Argentina and Chile, offers the most dramatic of scenery in which to escape. In Torres Del Paine, impossibly blue glacial lakes sit against a backdrop of towering, jagged mountains. A photographer’s dream, perfectly tranquil and packed with opportunities for adventure.
In Ecuador, a wilderness of a different kind is waiting to be discovered. Shrouded in an almost constant low-level mist, the Ecuadorian cloud forest offers protection for countless colourful bird species. This atmospheric rainforest region allows visitors to experience a completely different world away from the crowds.
Latin America offers one-of-a-kind wilderness experiences. We’ve selected some of our favourite holiday ideas and places to stay to help you discover them for yourself.
