Central & South American Tours

They’re some of the most biodiverse countries on the planet — and some of the most culturally fascinating. Whether exploring the wildlife wonders on a Patagonian adventure or delving into wine and indigenous tradition, South America is as diverse as it is breathtaking.

Home to some 1,300 mammals and 3,400 bird species, not to mention ancient and intriguing cultures, this continent offers a wealth of spontaneous and enriching experiences to make a lasting imprint on your psyche — and your camera, too.

Prepare to embark a safari vessel for wildlife expeditions into the heart of the Galapagos Islands or the Peruvian Amazon . . . discover Machu Picchu, one of the Seven Wonders of the World . . . and strap on your GoPro for an up-close encounter with penguins on Chiloé Island — or on a new 2021 Antarctica expedition aboard the new Ocean Explorer.

No matter whether you're on land or traveling by deluxe small ship aboard the luxurious m/v Zafiro in the Amazon or gearing up for the adventure of a lifetime aboard a thrilling polar expedition vessel, you'll be immersed in the nature and wildlife of each destination. Just think — up to 40 wildlife expeditions will bring you up close and personal with all that’s feathered, furry, and unforgettable in South America.
