South America

With the Andes range as the backbone of the continent, in South America there are options for all tastes, technical levels and seasons of the year. From glacier hikes in the Argentine and Chilean Patagonia, to alpine adventures in mountains and volcanoes of more than 6000 meters high. Trekking, running or mountain biking tours also await you in the Bolivian, Peruvian and Ecuadorian Andes. Along with the kindness of its people, South America offers outdoor experiences that will remain forever in your memories. Explore-share.com helps you book your next guided adventure here.

 

 

Argentina

From the puna to, literally, the end of the world, in Argentina you will find many things to do. The Andes Mountain Range is the backbone of South America and here in Argentina, it hosts important peaks, such as Aconcagua in Mendoza, Ojos del Salado (shared with Chile), or Mount Tronador in Bariloche. These mountains are ideal not only for a mountaineering experience, but also for hiking, hut-to-hut skiing or even via ferrata.

Alpine climbing finds its place in the world in El Chaltén, also known as the Argentine capital of trekking. Do not leave the country without making a glacier expedition in the Patagonian Ice Field and in the magical lands of Ushuaia, the southernmost city of the continent.

 

 


Ecuador

If we told you that in Ecuador you can travel through an ‘Avenue of Volcanoes’ you would probably stop what you are doing and take the first flight to that country. Do it! Here there is a volcanic mecca for lovers of high mountain expeditions, hiking and freeride skiing.

Cayambe, Cotopaxi and Illiniza are only three mountains that you can climb in the Ecuadorian Andes, but there are actually more than 70. They are all located very close to Quito, from where you can also start other expeditions, both in summer and in winter, for example to Baños or the Pacific Ocean’s beaches.

 

 


Chile

The Atacama Desert, in the north of the country is an extraordinary place to enjoy endless hiking itineraries in a hostile but beautiful environment. When moving to the center of Chile, you will find the city of Copiapó, a starting point of several expeditions, including the ascent to Ojos del Salado.

But, undoubtedly, the best of Chile is the Patagonian region, one of the most popular destinations for travelers looking for fun, adventure, good mountains and excellent snow quality. There you can enjoy climbing tours in Torres del Paine, mountaineering and ski touring in active volcanoes and an incredible ice field in the southern part of the country.

 

 


Bolivia

The Cordillera Real is undoubtedly the meeting point for climbers, hikers and skiers who come to Bolivia to spend a good holiday outdoors. It is a mountain range of the Bolivian altiplano, located southeast of Lake Titicaca, and east of the city of La Paz. Although it is very close to the Equator line, the Cordillera Real hosts numerous glaciers and is therefore a popular destination for winter sports.

The Illimani is the highest peak in the country, with 6438 meters, but there are innumerable options for mountaineering, hiking and cross-country skiing, including the Nevado Sajama in Oruro, or the Huayna Potosí and the Condoriri, both in La Paz, capital of the country.

 

 


Peru

Peru is a country that allows us to travel in time through its landscapes, its valleys full of Inca energy, its impressive mountains that form the Cordillera Blanca and, of course, its mythical Inca Trail that culminates in the Macchu Pichu.

From Lima to Cuzco, passing through the Salkantay trails until reaching some of its highest peaks, like the Ausangate, in Peru you will find a tailor-made tour for you and your group. If you are looking for a water experience, Lake Titicaca offers wonderful adventures while learning more about the local culture of its floating villages.

 

 


Brazil

We know you love the beaches of Brazil. But we also know that you would like to combine the tranquility of the sea with some action, such as climbing rocky terrain, a long trekking tour or maybe, an aerial adventure.

So, if you come to Brazil you can enjoy incredible outdoor adventures and  combine them with relax on the beach: a good plan is climbing Pão de Açúcar, a hill located in Rio de Janeiro, right in the Guanabara Bay, on the Atlantic Ocean. Also in Rio, you can visit Salinas in the Serra do Mar mountain range. It is also a fantastic destination for rock climbing.

 

 

 


Colombia

Colombia has become a first class destination for adventure and outdoor sports, thanks to its rich nature full of mountains, seas, rivers and waterfalls. Here you can find many incredible places to practice water sports such as canyoning, rafting, paragliding, climbing or abseiling. We recommend San Gil and, of course, the 1600 km of coast of the Colombian Caribbean, as well as some amazing points of the Pacific Ocean.

There are multi-day hiking tours through Los Nevados National Park (above 5000 meters of height). Colombia also offers many opportunities for horseback riding in the green savannah of Los Llanos or even on the Caribbean beaches.
