Want to experience South America the luxurious but enjoyable way? Skip the luxury hotels and have a luxury adventure you’ll never forget.
You don’t need to stay cooped up in a luxury hotel or resort to enjoy the best adventures in South America. But you don’t have to rough it either just to have fun in this highly diverse continent. South America boasts of some highly dramatic attractions, such as the largest river in the world, the highest waterfall, the longest mountain range, and many more.
Here are the three best ways on how you can have a luxury adventure in South America.
#1 Luxury Expedition cruises
One of the best ways to enjoy most of the adventures and see most of the attractions in South America while enjoying a luxurious vacation is by joining luxury expedition cruises. There are many cruise ships that travel through the South American region, bringing visitors to Patagonia, Peru, Brazil, Ecuador, Uruguay, and even down to the southern tip of Tierra del Fuego. These expeditions can also take you to see the Machu Picchu, the Amazon, Easter Island, and the famed Torres del Paine.
You can also take a cruise trip down the mightiest river on earth. Enjoy your usual luxuries while sailing along the calm waters of the Amazon River down to the Amazon Basin.
#2 Luxury Desert Oasis in Atacama
Learn more about the unique culture and traditions of Atacama while living in the midst of its exotic wildlife. Stay in a luxurious desert oasis, which is one kind of accommodation you won’t commonly find anywhere else. While enjoying luxurious suites and all the modern conveniences, you will still be able to experience an authentic South American adventure in the middle of the desert.
#3 Luxury Machu Picchu Trek
You don’t have to forego the luxuries you’re used to just to experience a trek to Machu Picchu. Experience the ancient land of the Incas and go on a spiritual journey to this famous South American attraction while enjoying the guidance and assistance of a highly trained team of escorts that will carry your luggage and answer all your needs. The trails are also remote so you don’t have to mingle with huge crowds. This is a great way to experience the South American nature in its purest form.
The ancient ruin of Machu Picchu is a legendary destination that is a must-see when you’re in South America. But aside from the site itself, this luxury trek will also reward you with unhindered views of the snow-capped mountains and the Salkantay Valley.
#4 Luxury Haciendas in Ecuadorian Andes
Stay right in the heart of South America’s Avenue of Volcanoes by booking into a hacienda in the Ecuadorian Andes. The place is an adventure in itself, so although there’s nothing extreme here, you will still feel like you’ve been teleported to a different land. While there, take guided and escorted treks. On your free time, check out the indigenous markets, immerse yourself in the colonial art of South American, and enjoy native South American cuisine.
#5 Galapagos Island Luxury Diving Adventures
Go on a scuba diving adventure in South America’s Galapagos Island. There are many diving yachts that leave Galapagos Island and take guests around the surrounding waters. These yachts make the diving adventure comfortable and even luxurious, while the beauty of the island and its surrounding water makes sure your adventure is an unforgettable one.
