The cultures of South America are as diverse as the majestic landscapes where they can be found. Get to know, and understand, some of South Americas richest cultures on a tour with Adventure Life. Tours of the Sacred Valley of the Inca take you back centuries to their ancient yet advanced civilization. In the depths of the rainforest, you can meet modern indigenous communities that have managed to maintain their customs & traditions as well. Some communities base their society around the nearby bodies of water, like in the Falklands Islands or around Lake Titicaca. Each part of this vast continent has a rich story to share, shaped by millennia of natural influence, invasions, and the mixing of European & Pacific cultures with the American lifestyle to form an authentically diverse South American cultural identity.
