An expedition to South America is not for the weak of heart. The most exciting and engaging way to experience all this land has to offer is by experiencing it on an active tour. You can kayak down blackwater rivers of the Amazon jungle, where caiman crocodiles and pink river dolphins patrol the waters. Or snorkel alongside sea turtles & marine iguanas in the clear blue seas of the Galapagos Islands. If your legs are up for it, then you can hike along Ecuador's Avenue of the Volcanoes or Peru's renowned Machu Picchu, high in the Andes. Mountain biking and rafting are also fun ways to soar or splash through the beautiful biodiversity that this continent hosts. If it's adventure you seek, then Adventure Life is here to make your dreams come true
