Guyanas adventure holiday, off the beaten track

This is a trip which emphatically goes off the beaten track, taking in some of the rarely-visited highlights of Venezuela, Suriname and the Guianas. You won’t find a group tour like this offered by anyone else: the logistics of researching and organising such a trip are daunting but as South America experts we relished the challenge. You'll scramble through dense jungle to glimpse two of the continent's most impressive cataracts: Angel Falls and Kaieteur Falls; surround yourself with wildlife in a rainforest canopy and drive through sweeping savannah punctuated by ancient sandstone plateaux. You’ll stay in sweltering frontier settlements and hammock camps in the forest; visit the French ... Read more >

Chile holiday, Atacama Desert to Patagonia Glaciers

Covering this many natural and cultural wonders on a Chile holiday is no mean feat, but this carefully crafted, two-week itinerary is our suggested route for those seeking a tailor made overview of this vast country. We start in the capital, Santiago, and after a guided tour of this magnificent colonial capital with its Andean backdrop, we use internal flights to head north to the contrasting Atacama Desert. Natural wonders that await in this arid region include Moon Valley and the Salar de Atacama salt flats. These extremes are typical of Chile’s dramatically beautiful landscapes. Another example is the El Tatio geyser field in the Andes Mountains also up in the north, and the highest ... Read more >

Uruguay self drive holiday

Uruguay, wedged between the behemoths of Brazil and Argentina, is a holiday destination offering a real sense of breathing space. It's the size of England but with a population of just 3.5 million, not much greater than that of Wales. The gently rolling countryside is dreamily bucolic -  the famous beef cattle graze nonchalantly accompanied by a multitude of birds, whose song at sunrise is as enchanting as the unspoilt little towns and increasingly chic range of hotels and restaurants. Getting around is most satisfyingly achieved with the freedom of your own hire car. Our self-drive holiday explores the UNESCO jewel of Colonia, Carmelo’s vineyards, Montevideo’s art-deco streets, Rocha's ... Read more >

Nicaragua adventure holiday

This group holiday will be a real adventure: we’ll be travelling by road and by boat across the country, arriving at remote, hard-to-reach destinations where we’ll be flung back in time. We’ll meet back-water rural and riparian communities, discover once wealthy Spanish colonial towns and clamber over a monumental frontier fort. We’ll gasp at the plethora of exotic wildlife on the fringes of Lake Nicaragua, gaze up at the crater of a sizzling volcano, and stroll on the sands of a folksy, English-speaking Caribbean Island.

Antarctica Peninsula holiday, highlights tour

This cruise provides an in-depth experience of not only the snow-drenched mountains and icebergs of the Antarctic Peninsula but also the bleakly beautiful landscapes of South Georgia and the Falkland Islands. These windswept sub-Antarctic islands are brought to life by the chattering and wheeling of birdlife: beaches are choked with penguins in their hundreds of thousands, and the vestiges of a human history of struggle and endeavour are everywhere to be seen. Sail east from Ushuaia to the Falkland Islands and spend a couple of days exploring the rugged coastline and draughty plains, spotting Magellanic and gentoo penguins, maybe a nesting albatross or two. Pop into Port Stanley, the ... Read more >

Ecuador hiking holiday, tailor made

Ecuador is an ideal destination for hikers. This lodge to lodge trek will appeal to those who wish to avoid camping, and to meet local people. The walks are always picturesque, with views over snow-dappled mountain landscapes, plains of rough wind-battered grass and icy lagoons.

There are simple but warm and cosy rural farms and inns to stay in, where you will receive a warm welcome and be able to relax after the day’s exertions. The tiny republic sits at the crossroads of the equator and the ... Read more >

Its vibrancy and friendly people will make a lasting impression.  Cycle round Havana’s historic centre; then travel by bus to colonial Trinidad for some hill-walking among cool pines. Cycle through the limestone country of the ... Read more >
