      South America General Information

      Where to go trekking in South America

      Hike the ancient Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru, explore the vast Patagonian wilderness in Argentina and Chile, or take on the challenging Andean peaks in Ecuador. Other fantastic adventures include trekking through Colombia’s Cocora Valley or venturing into the Brazilian Amazon for a jungle trek.

      Why is South America great for trekking?

      From the snow-capped peaks of the Andes to the lush rainforests and arid deserts, the continent offers a diverse range of trekking experiences. Coupled with rich archaeological sites and deep indigenous cultures, trekking in South America offers both physical and spiritual enrichment.

      When to trek in South America

      The Andean trekking season typically runs from April to October, avoiding the rainy season for clearer paths and better views. In Patagonia, the optimal months are from November to March, during the Southern Hemisphere’s summer. The Amazon is best visited during the dry season from June to September for fewer mosquitos and lower water levels, which expose more hiking trails.

      Top 5 treks in South America

      1. Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, Peru - This iconic trek takes hikers along ancient Incan paths through the Andes, culminating in the stunning archaeological site of Machu Picchu. The classic route typically takes four days and offers breathtaking views and rich history.
      2. W Trek in Torres del Paine, Chile - Located in Patagonia, the W Trek is famous for its dramatic mountain formations, bright blue glaciers, and stunning valleys. It can be completed in about 4-5 days, providing an unforgettable journey through one of the world's most picturesque landscapes.
      3. Fitz Roy Trek, Argentina - This trek in Patagonia, near the small town of El Chaltén, offers hikers the chance to see the stunning Mount Fitz Roy. The area is known for its rugged peaks, pristine lakes, and dramatic ice fields.
      4. Cocora Valley, Colombia - Known for its lush green landscapes and towering wax palms (the national tree of Colombia), the Cocora Valley trek can be a day hike or part of a longer circuit. It's a magical experience, offering both beauty and the thrill of exploration.
      5. Chapada Diamantina, Brazil - This national park in the heart of Bahia is a hidden gem with vast plateaus, enchanting caves, and beautiful waterfalls. Treks here vary from a few hours to several days, exploring the region’s rugged terrain and natural pools.
