Argentina

Argentina

Land of the gaucho

Welcome to Argentina, the land of the gaucho. Within its borders you’ll find everything from jungles to wetlands, huge mountains, glaciers, lakes, breathtaking waterfalls and its sprawling capital, Buenos Aires. Distances here are vast and should not be underestimated – driving from Buenos Aires to San Martín de los Andes in Patagonia takes 20 hours for example – but the scenery you pass through is simply stunning. Think snow-capped mountains, traditional villages and endless pampas.

Chile

Chile

From desert to glacier

Chile encompasses an awful lot in its 2,670-mile length. At the northern end, you’ll find the dusty sands of the Atacama Desert, home to flamingos and colourful lakes, while in the south, penguins and whales frequent the icy waters of Patagonia, and the Perito Moreno Glacier creeps ever forward. But even if you're eager to start hiking through the mountains or sail the fjords, don't leave Santiago behind until you've visited the capital's eye-opening museums and learned a little about the country's turbulent history.

Peru

Peru

Land of the Incas

Most famous for the Inca ruins at Machu Picchu, Peru is well-known for its diversity. Where else can you hike to lost cities, look for penguins and sea lions, fly over strange desert drawings, spend the night in the rainforest and explore endless Andean mountain villages? It’s an active place too; Peru boasts 12 national parks and numerous other protected areas where you can indulge in outdoor activities ranging from white water rafting to surfing or trekking.

Galapagos Islands

Galapagos Islands

Follow in Darwin's footsteps

Thanks to Charles Darwin, the 19 Galapagos Islands, a tiny archipelago 600 miles west of Ecuador, are known the world over for their rich diversity of life, with many rare and endemic species found here. Cruise the clear waters and see if you can spot sea lions, land and marine iguanas and a wide range of birdlife including pelicans, flamingos, frigate birds and penguins. And don’t forget the famous Galapagos giant tortoise.

Cuba

Cuba

Caribbean colonial culture

Cuba is a name you can almost taste. No surprises there, as the island – the largest in the Caribbean – is full of flavour; an exotic land of sun-kissed beaches, colonial cities, forest-clad mountains and varied wildlife. Where else in the world do fifties muscle cars trundle down cobbled streets littered with crumbling Spanish architecture, giving way to an emerald interior where beauty abounds?

Costa Rica

Costa Rica

Rainforests, volcanoes & wildlife

Lush, vibrant and teeming with wildlife, Costa Rica is a nature lover’s dream. Here among the thick cloud forests and misty jungles, waterfalls cascade, parrots squawk, monkeys howl, and sloths do, well, not a lot. Explorers will be in their element here, kayaking and horse riding through the undergrowth, hiking past volcanoes and living la pura vida (the pure life) on Costa Rica's deserted beaches.
