There’s times when it’s appropriate to dip a toe in, and there’s times when it’s best to simply dive in headfirst. That’s exactly what you’re going to be doing on this trip from Lima to Rio, albeit with plenty of time for exploring and taking things at your own pace. This trip takes in the very best of the centre of South America – from trekking the Inca Trail to Macchu Pichu to partying in Rio de Janiero. Visit the Iguaza Falls and stroll the streets of Buenos Aires. Snap pictures at the incredible Uyuni Salt Flats, look out over the Nazca Lines and explore the stunning history of this incredible part of the world at a pace that allows you to do as much as you want. Experience the best of South America’s centre on this Intrepid Adventure. Highlights/r/n
  • Whether you trek the classic Inca Trail, the Inca Quarry Trail or take the scenic train route, the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu are a majestic destination, no matter how you get there
  • The floating islands of Uros on Lake Titicaca are a marvel of concept, construction and history. Take a boat tour on the lake and spend the night with a local family in a traditional island community
  • The landscapes of Salar de Uyuni are so unique they’re almost extra-terrestrial. Embark on a three-day adventure via 4WD across the rocky Atacama Desert and the largest salt lakes in the world - passing cactus islands, train cemeteries and mineral lakes teeming with flamingos
  • Harness your inner gaucho during a three-day stay at a working estancia in Uruguay. Whether it’s getting involved in daily chores around the farm, working with livestock or simply relaxing on the ranch, experience a unique way of life and Uruguayan hospitality at its best
  • The mighty Iguazu Falls straddles the border between Argentina and Brazil, and you’ll be able to see it from both sides
  • The heaving, hedonistic metropolis of Rio de Janeiro is a great way to end the trip. Party down with the locals and experience a culture at the beating heart of Brazil
