Discover Charles Darwin’s inspiration for his theory of evolution in the Galapagos Islands, climb the towering peaks of Patagonia, and explore the mysteries of Machu Picchu on one of Austin Adventures’ South America adventure vacations. Whether you enjoy hiking, biking, rafting, kayaking, horseback riding or just cruising up the Amazon on a small ship we have an adventure for you!

Watch the day break over the quiet ruins of an ancient Inca civilization, running your fingers over the silky-soft fibers of an alpaca blanket spun by a local craftswoman using age-old weaving techniques or tour the city of Cusco, the Inca Empire’s capital and one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the Western Hemisphere, or step back and time in Peru’s Sacred Valley on our lodge-to-lodge adventure.

When have you ever come face-to-face with iguanas, sea lions, albatross, boobies and giant tortoise? Nowhere in the world is the wildlife so fearless and free as in the Galapagos. Here you’ll walk in Darwin’s footsteps along volcanic trails blanketed in lava bombs, spatter cones, and lava tubes and snorkel crystal clear waters with curious sea lions and prehistoric marine iguanas.

No matter where your South America travels lead you, we’ll reward you at the end of each active day with a hearty meal of savory, traditional cuisine and a good night’s sleep in the comfort of a luxury yacht or exquisite hotel.
