Featured Holidays in the Americas

Highlight of the Americas

A key highlight of any trip to the Americas is the music and dance that fills the streets of all Central and South American countries. The soundtrack to your holiday will depend on your destination of choice; from the infectious beats of salsa and merengue in the Caribbean to the soul-stirring sounds of samba in Brazil, music is an integral part of their life and identity. 

What to do in the Americas

The Inca Trail

Discovered in 1915, The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is a 4-5 day trek through some of South America’s most beautiful landscapes. The famous archaeological site of Machu Piccu is an awe-inspiring ancient city that transports visitors back in time. The highest point of the trek, Warmiwanusca (Dead Woman's Pass), is 4200m above sea level, and the trek involves some steep ascents and descents crossing the deep Andean valleys.

The region of Patagonia spans the two nations of southern Chile and Argentina in South America and is one of the world's last great wildernesses, with remote, dramatic landscapes matching those of the mighty Himalaya.
