South America’s lakes rivers and seas await you – try our white water rafting and kayak holidays.
We have white water rafting and kayaking for all levels, from routes suitable for families up to big water for experienced paddlers.
Rafters – varying in length, difficulty and style.
Choose between shooting roller coaster rapids on some of the world’s top white water runs to drifting gently through virgin jungle along an Amazonian river.
For sea kayakers, we have superb paddling tours from a day to a week-long among whales and sea lions in Argentina’s Peninsula Valdes.
Perhaps kayak among the mangroces or the Galapagos Islands or the Chilean Lake District’s fjords is more your style?
Chile’s Futaleufu and Peru’s Apurimac are rivers everyone should raft at least once.
There are also plenty of one day rafting trips for those who want fun and challenging days on the fast flowing rivers fed by the Andes.
Sea and river kayakers will love our Patagonia tours, with day trips or expeditions of up to 12-days to some of the most remote areas of the world, many only accessible by water.
All feature idyllic camps next to the shore, where you can recall the previous day’s exhilaration.

I had the most amazing time, it far exceeded what I was expecting.
The camp really does sell itself short, it’s an amazing camp. Food was out of this world and all staff were great, free bar at camp and each tent/hut had its own member of staff allocated to you for the whole trip, so coffee served in bed every morning.
There were yoga classes every morning to help get ready for the day in the raft and two hot tubs.
I'm going to go again next year!

I would not only consider Andean Trails as an option if I were lucky enough to be looking for another adventure, it would be my first choice.
