We've selected the top wilderness experiences in all of South America below. The stunningly biodiverse Amazon rainforest is home to more species of trees and monkeys in just one square mile than there are in all of North America. The Galapagos Islands are a birder's paradise with endemic species found only on certain islands, and divers will delight in the rainbow of marine life that lives beneath the water's crystal turquoise surface. The windswept grasslands & deserts of Patagonia in Argentina and the towering Iguazu Falls of Brazil are stunning natural wonders in themselves. And the southern tip of the region serves as an excellent portal to the icy fjords and glaciers of the Antarctic. From the tropics to the pole, South America has an adventure for everyone to enjoy.
