Explore the colourful and abundant wildlife of South America on our guided holidays to unique and wonderfully different lands.
South America is an enormous continent and its biodiversity and abundance of wildlife reflects its geographic stature.
From the soaring and iconic condor to the elusive puma and tapir, from colourful macaws to the tame wildlife of Galapagos.
We work with local communities and the best guides to bring you the best tours.
Most trips are open to anyone with an interest in the natural world and no visit to South America is complete without spending time looking for its wonderful fauna.
Galapagos is a world famous wildlife attraction, with marine, bird and wildlife surpassed nowhere in the world.
South America also counts as home to the Amazon rainforest. This huge forest is like no other on the earth, replete with monkeys, insects and birds, and many species still being discovered.
In the mountains, there is the iconic condor to look for as well as big cats like jaguars, and the shy spectacled bear for the lucky ones.
These bears also live in cloud forests, a haven for birdwatchers and hikers in the cool mists of these fertile mountain-side forests.
And that’s before we mention Antarctica, or the whales that migrate along the coasts, the llamas, armadillos and more.
South America is a nature lover’s paradise.

Our trip was a huge success and we had a wonderful time. With a varied and busy itinerary, we always had something exciting to look forward to and nothing failed to live up to expectations. All accommodations were good but the Bellavista Lodge in the Cloudforest, the Hato Verde hacienda in Cotopaxi national park, and the Hosteria Mandala in Puerto Lopez, were all outstanding.
Everything went perfectly well, and thanks to all involved at Andean Trails for a great itinerary and for organising it all.

Larry and Gillian are coming to the end of their month of travelling with Andean Trails in Patagonia. We put together a tour designed to take them off-the-beaten-track – read the first instalment in their blog – covering Santiago and Aysen and remote border crossings. Once in Argentina, Gillian and Larry trekked to the base of Fitzroy and Cerro Torre, and took a day tour to Perito Moreno. They then set off for Torres del Paine on a self-guided trek. Their tour has ended with a few days in Ushuaia and a flight out from Buenos Aires. Check their progress below …
