Trekking in South America

Trekking is an obvious activity when traveling to South America. Even we have hiked Peru sparsely and we like to do it again and again. The route along the Inca Trail that takes us to the forgotten Inca Empire, Machu Picchu, is an extremely popular trek in Peru. Special permission is required before you can leave your footprints in the Incas. We at Tourist Travel can help you with that.

The Torres del Paine trek in Chile is also a strong candidate when it comes to naming the world’s most beautiful trekking route. Here, dramatic mountain formations, deep lakes and glaciers merge into a unique coal ice. We have trek in varying degrees of difficulty. So regardless of your physical level, we’ll probably find the perfect trek for you on your trip to South America.

Cultural travel in South America

On your trip to South America you will experience a contrasting and diverse cultural history. Here are still plenty of relics from the continent’s indigenous people, the Indians. But the many years of colonization have marked South America quite a bit. For example, the majority of the population speaks Spanish.

Take Tourist Travel to South America’s local villages in Peru and the highlands of Bolivia. You can also learn about the vast Amazon jungle as we move through the lush nature, led by a local Native American guide. We visit the monuments of the big city and forgotten cities in the mountain landscape – for example the unique Machu Picchu.

Nature trip in South America

The nature in South America is diverse according to COUNTRYAAH. It folds into rushing rivers that make their way through rainforest, desert and majestic mountains. Join us on a true Amazon adventure when we go on adventures in the lush nature that makes up the world’s largest rainforest. The wildlife here is also spectacular.

The enormous biodiversity means that a myriad of different animal species can live and thrive in beautiful South America. Here is everything from sloths, armadillos, llamas, rodents, large cats such as jaguars and cougars and up to 50 different species of monkeys. The bird life of South America is also large and colorful. About 2,900 of the world’s 9,000 bird species can be found here.

Mountaineering in South America

If you want to end your South American adventure to the top, join one of our top tours. We take you on mountaineering in Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. Together we go exploring in the beautiful mountain ridges. In Ecuador, we even have the opportunity to set foot on the breathtaking volcano, Cortopaxi.

The scenery that unfolds around us as we climb mountains in South America is absolutely and utterly magnificent. In Bolivia, we pass Lake Titicaca – the world’s highest lake at 3,800 meters above sea level. South America is, if possible, even more beautiful seen from a mountain top, and so is the trip to the tops. We will enjoy sharing the trip with you.

Experiences in South America

Machu Picchu

The Seven Wonders of the World take us to the forgotten treasure of the Incas in Peru, Machu Picchu. 2,430 meters above the lushness of the Urubamba Valley lies the impressive construction of an Inkaby. For over 350 years no one knew the existing one.

It is believed that Machu Picchu was built in the 15th Century. How the Incas have fared in constructing something so majestic in the ridges of the Andes remains a great mystery.

Iguazu Waterfalls

On your trip to Syamerica you can experience one of the world’s largest waterfalls. The IguazĂș waterfall unfolds in both Brazil and Argentina and stretches for a full 2.7 km. along the rushing IguazĂș River.

As many as 275 smaller waterfalls constitute the enormous natural phenomenon. It rumbles like a worse thunderstorm when over 6.5 million liters of water run through the waterfall every single second. This is an indescribable sight.

Salary of Uyuni

In Bolivia you will find the world’s largest salt flats, Salar de Uyuni. There is not really anything in South America that can be compared to the sight that meets us here. The beautiful salt flats are absolutely unique.

During periods of drought, Salar de Uyuni is dry. The ground is white and cracked. When the rain falls, the water lies over the plain and reflects the sky and the red-hot mountains that surround Salar de Uyuni.
