Latin America offers stunning scenery and landscapes across a wide variety of countries with each multi-day trek exploring a unique ecosystem and area. The majestic Andes Mountains – the longest continental mountain range in the world – runs the length of South America and unsurprisingly, the best guided treks this area of the world has to offer are mostly found in the Andes.
On your trek, you are fully taken care of with English speaking qualified guides, meals, transport, tents and sleeping bags all provided by our fully certified and high quality ground partners. This means you only have to worry about completing the set amount of kilometres for the day and we will take care of the rest.
For travellers who are more independent and experienced hikers, a few of the guided treks listed below, like the W Trek in Torres del Paine, can be done on your own. We will pre-book your accommodation and meals for on the trail and you can set off on a solo unguided adventure. For others like the Classic Inca Trail, due to permits and regulations, you must join a guided experience.
Note: Many of our guided trek itineraries include nights pre or post hike. In the overview below, we have listed just nights spent as part of the trek itself.
