South America Walking & Hiking Tours

Hike below the spires of Cerro Fitz Roy in Argentine Patagonia’s Los Glaciares National Park, where the vivid blue colors of glacial lakes will astound you. Journey by sea and on foot in spellbinding Chilean Patagonia, with its fjords, Cape Horn and Torres del Paine perched at the edge of the world. Experience Chile’s Puerto Varas, known for its German-style architecture and backdrop of snowcapped volcanoes. Feel awestruck as you hike from Cusco to magical Machu Picchu in Peru. Or head to Colombia for a trek in Tayrona National Park, praised for its beauty by The New York Times. Or join us in Ecuador where you can hike a volcano's rim in the Andes and encounter blue-footed boobies in the Galapagos Island. South America casts a seductive spell. Experience it with Backroads!
