South America: Luxury & Private Travel

You don’t have to travel clear across the world to escape the everyday. Your next great adventure might (practically) be in your own backyard, or in a similar time zone at the very least. Although you can easily spend weeks in a single country, travel throughout South America is also ideal for anyone looking for a quick escape. A Friday night red-eye gets you to South America’s main gateways by early morning. From there, it’s very reasonable to wrangle a meaningful trip before settling back to work just one week later. Hike the furthest reaches of Patagonia. Island-hop around the Galapagos. Climb to the ancient citadel of Machu Picchu. Taste the wines of Mendoza.

Unforgettable experiences in South America

  • Travel the streets of Old Havana in a retro automobile and savor the sights and sounds of the buzzing Malecon.
  • Explore Chile and Argentina’s southern ice fields. Walk the catwalks, boat, kayak, hike, and trek on the glaciers; toast your experience with a drink ‘on the glacial rocks’.
  • Hike the Salkantay Trail, a lodge to lodge hiking adventure through a historic section of Inca trail spanning 15 different eco-systems. Explore villages where locals still maintain age-old traditions and re-discover the mystical beauty of Machu Picchu.
