Walking and Trekking Holidays

Become immersed in the landscape with a walking and trekking holiday through some of Latin America’s most impressive wilderness scenery.

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.

Choosing your ideal walking or trekking holiday is easy with us – our specialists have first-hand knowledge and experience of all of our itineraries, so no matter where you want to go, and how much (or little) support you want, we can take care of all the practicalities and leave you to explore the awe-inspiring sights this region has to offer.
Before embarking on your Latin American adventure with us, we’ll send you through detailed information on how to prepare, as it’s important pack wisely for every kind of trip. As a guide, we would recommend you bring the following essentials with you:

• Warm/breathable clothing (like cotton shirts/merino wool long sleeved tops)
• Comfortable walking shoes
• A waterproof jacket
• A warm fleece or sweater for layering
• Sun protection, including sun cream and sunglasses
• Insect repellent
• Rubber-tipped walking poles
• Camera and batteries

A walking holiday can’t be beaten for its ability to give you access to nature’s staggering beauty. So, why not appreciate it for yourself? Get in touch with one of our experts and start planning your next holiday today.
