The Impacts of this Trip

This trip gives you plenty of opportunities to get to know the culture and vibrant history of Latin America. There are numerous chances for local interaction as we cover so much ground using all means of public transport. You’ll be surprised how much you can learn from a friendly local who strikes up a conversation during your journey.

Your leader and the occasional local guide will be able to direct you to many local eateries throughout the trip, helping you discover real local fare at real local prices (and probably helping you learn some Spanish at the same time). All travellers are encouraged to explore with the group and on their own, learn a few words of the language and interact with the locals as much as possible.

Local guides are employed to help explain as much as possible about the cultural differences and the historically significant places that we visit. This also allows us to appreciate the importance of preserving and respecting these sites and to help us minimise the impact of our visits.

There are plenty of opportunities to support local merchants in the markets and stalls that we pass along the way. We can purchase traditional handicrafts from local artisans and learn more about the importance of preserving these crafts.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Working on the ranch and riding horses in Uruguay

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Enjoy the culture and people in South America

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


The guides used locally owned restaurants and recommended that we use our Intrepid cloth bags when shopping rather than using plastic or paper.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


We took 2 different trips and combined them. The trips were excellent. I loved being in Patagonia and I enjoyed the hiking in Torrey del Piney. As I mentioned before 3 days riding horses and working on a ranch with Juan in Uruguay will always be remembered.
