Trek through South America


South America trekking tours have become popular as South America features rich ecological areas, such as the Amazon Rainforest and the Andes. Not only that, South America trekking activities can even extend to the Atacama Desert, the most arid land area in the world. No rain has fallen in the region for over four centuries. Needless to say, trekking through the country is an adventure, given its diverse terrain.

If you’d like to spend time viewing the wildlife and natural landscape, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to do so. South America trekking holidays are offered in the countries of Peru, Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Venezuela, and Ecuador. Besides trekking, you can also cruise by ship or take an adventure by bicycle too.

A Top Trekking Circuit
Expeditions can lead you to the Machu Picchu ruins or the ruins of the Incas in Cuzco. Take the Inca Trail and set up camp along the way. Trekkers on tours will find the Cordillera Huayhuash to their liking as this classic Peruvian route passes by a number of prominent peaks as well as lakes. Considered one of the primary trekking circuits, the Cordillera Huayhuash features a variety of flora and fauna, and therefore is a top spot for viewing wildlife and plants.

Explore Patagonia
South America trekking can include wildlife adventures or overland tours too. Discover such natural sites as the Amazon jungle, the ruins of Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, and Iguazu Falls. One of the most geographically dramatic areas, Patagonia, is defined by forests of beech trees, granite peaks, and expansive grasslands.

Visit Southern Argentina and Chile
Walk through the Los Glaciares National Park or trek over the trails of the Torres Del Paine. You might also consider exploring southern Argentina and Chile, both of which are home to seals and penguins as well as the eagle and condor.

Be Prepared
If you do plan to go hiking or trekking, make sure you are prepared. Trekkers should carry a day pack that features multiple pockets, zip closure, and shoulder straps with extra padding. Also, make sure the pack is sized properly. If it fits correctly, the base of the bag should comfortably sit on your hips. Wear high-quality hiking boots that provide good traction and support too. To allow for any swelling when you walk, always buy your boots a half-size larger than what you normally wear.

What You’ll Need to Bring
Socks should be made to wick away moisture and made with a synthetic or wool blend. As wet feet can cause blisters to develop, the type of socks you wear is an important consideration. Other accessories you’ll need during a trekking tour include a water bottle, first-aid kit, map and compass, sweater, blanket, and Swiss Army knife.

Some Mistakes of Beginners
If you haven’t been on any kind of lengthy trekking trip, then you’ll want to be cognizant of some of the mistakes first-time trekkers can make, such as overstriding, not getting sufficient hydration, wearing the wrong shoes, or selecting the wrong clothes. Turpial Travel and Adventure’s South America trekking excursions provide individuals with a great way to see nature up-close. That’s why you want to make sure you’re well-prepared when your book a trip. Forgo the hassle of planning and travel with us!
