Discover South America

The stark beauty of South America comes to light in unimaginable ways when you hike across its vast terrain, through ethereal forests and winding village streets. A walking tour of South American allows hikers to trace footpaths that were once ancient trade routes, past historic ruins and in the footsteps of ancient civilizations.

Here you can follow the path of famed explorers across the Inca Trail and up the steps of Machu Picchu, the famed mountain citadel. Amble through the quaint seaside towns of Chile and across sloping vineyards dotted with wine-making bodegas that offer a world-renowned sense of hospitality as internationally acclaimed as their fresh seafood.

Stroll the brightly colored streets of Valparaiso and follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin at La Campana National Park. Join the excitement of a local outdoor market in Peru, where soft alpaca textiles are sold next to locally harvested vegetables while traditional Andean music fills the air. Remarkable natural beauty and charming cultures make any exploration of South America on foot a truly unforgettable experience.
