Trekking

Take a look at our trekking holidays in Latin America. The Andes and Patagonia offer some of the most stupendous wilderness scenery in the world.


There is surely no better way to enjoy the awe-inspiring landscapes of Latin America than under your own steam. This is a land designed for lovers of the great outdoors, where the staggering scale of nature’s attractions is often best appreciated, and best accessed, on foot.

You’ll discover a well-organised network of national parks and a number of iconic treks such as the Inca Trail or the W-trek in Chile. Peru and Patagonia are perennial favourites for trekkers, but we can also help you find the path less trodden – perhaps a hike in the forested foothills of a volcano, or to the top of a table mountain. No matter where you want to go, and how much (or how little) support you want on your trek, we can take care of all the practicalities – leaving you free to simply breathe in the unspoilt beauty of Latin America’s most spectacular panoramas.

What our experts say

At the end of the Ausangate lodge-to-lodge trek I was lost for words. I just don't know how to describe the experience I can't believe how quickly it was over, I came prepared for a struggle to reach every pass and although it would be misleading to call this trek a stroll in the park, it certainly wasn't as tough as I had expected. The key is to be acclimatised and enjoy trekking; the rest is easy, just put one foot in front of the other and open all your senses.
