South America is one of the most diverse places on earth! Travel here and you could be cruising along the Amazon through the dense Brazilian jungle, trekking through the awe-inspiring scenery of Patagonia’s national parks, discovering the fascinating ancient history of the Incas at the ruins of Machu Picchu, riding across the pampas with local gauchos in Argentina or practicing your salsa steps in a steamy bar in Colombia.
Dragoman runs overland trips throughout South and Central America all year round - so there’s never a bad time to visit. Every February or March, many of our tours converge in the eclectic city of Rio de Janeiro around Carnival time, giving you the opportunity to combine one of our amazing Latin American trips with the biggest and liveliest party on earth. Or how about going all out on the ultimate Latin American journey, a giant circuit taking in the best the continent has to offer, from the High Andes of Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia, to the beautiful beaches of Brazil and the towering peaks of Patagonia?
This is a continent made for overland travel, and our custom-built vehicles really come in to their own when they forge a trail through areas of incredible wilderness like the high Bolivian Altiplano. Whether you’re looking to hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, relax on a Caribbean beach or take an epic trip from Colombia all the way to Tierra del Fuego and Ushuaia, all our itineraries are designed to make sure you have an unforgettable adventure travel experience.
