From the rainforests of Costa Rica to the peaks of the Torres del Paine; the historic Strait of Magellan to the stone terraces of Machu Picchu, our small group tours to Central and South America showcase wonders of both man and nature.
In this small Central American democracy kissed by nature, our small group discovers a nation’s wealth in four distinct regions, from cloud forest to rainforest and Central Valley to Pacific Coast. As Costa Rica presents its staggering display of biodiversity – pristine landscapes, unique microclimates, exotic flora and fauna – we enjoy a relaxed yet comprehensive exploration that celebrates the country’s wide-ranging natural resources.
They rank as two of South America’s greatest treasures, and a small group tour is the natural selection for both: the enigmatic ruins at Machu Picchu, where we overnight at an intimate on-site hotel; and the fascinating Galapagos Islands, Darwin’s “living laboratory,” for a four-night island-based adventure.
Join us in Patagonia, the unspoiled wilderness at lands’ end, shared by Chile and Argentina. Here, the Torres del Paine massif presides over rugged plains, and ice-blue glaciers speckle the sea. As we visit two breathtaking national parks in this remote region, we experience nature at its purest, up close and unfettered. And a stay in Buenos Aires adds zest to our small group journey.
Enjoy the rare privilege of face-to-face encounters with two of the world’s last great frontiers: the majestic fjords and glaciers of Southern Patagonia, on a small-ship cruise; and the dramatic scenery of Torres del Paine on a three-night stay at the park. Along with visits to Buenos Aires and Santiago, we discover the remarkable diversity of South America.
A land of treasures archaeological, cultural, and natural, Peru draws those eager to learn about the distant past – and encounter a fascinating present. As our small group takes in some of the country’s highlights – Cuzco, Machu Picchu, and Lake Titicaca – we marvel at the riches of an intriguing land somewhat off the beaten path.
