Imagine the possibilities: learn about the fascinating Incas, who left indelible marks across the continent with their mysterious ruins. Captivating cultures will surprise and delight, from colourful religious festivals that inform as well as entertain to tales of myth and legend that defy any storybook fantasies they’ve ever heard before.
In Argentina, you could ride with real-life cowboys across the pampas, ice trek across a creaking glacier or go white water rafting in the Andes. Don’t forget the incredible wildlife experiences that they’ll enjoy telling their friends about back home: walk in the jungle with monkeys, birds and butterflies; blow bubbles in the face of an inquisitive sea lion while diving in the Galapágos Islands or swim with reef sharks, turtles and Galápagos penguins. The possibilities are endless.
Our favourite family holidays in South America and beyond…
Brazil Family Adventure
Costa Rica Family Adventure
Costa Rica’s size makes it ideal for a two-week family holiday exploring its cloud forests, beaches and colourful towns. Embody the country’s ‘pura vida’ lifestyle to the full with a family adventure that lets you live the good life, discovering national parks, canopy walks, beachside lodges and diverse ecosystems.
Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands Family Adventure
It would be hard to better Ecuador and the Galapagos for a family holiday to remember. Colonial and Inca ruins, verdant rainforests, mountain-ringed capital cities and towering volcanoes make the mainland a destination to visit in itself, but there are also the Galapagos Islands to consider. Imagine a holiday where your kids can swim with sea lions and penguins, visit coves where pirates once stashed their wares or explore tortoise habitats?
