Adventure Guides South America By Raft "The Trancura is a beguiling river, where sparkling waters cascade over smooth rocks, and snow–capped mountains and dense forests form a breathtaking vista in the background, but its tricky rapids demand total attention." By Jeep "The view from the hill, covered with hundreds of spiky, phallic–looking cacti, some of them blooming with yellow flowers, was amazing, and the surrounding sea of salt, tessellated with geometric crystals, did indeed appear to lap at the rocky shores." By Foot and Horse "The Torres del Paine tower over what is probably South America′s finest national park. On foot and by horseback, I skirted shimmering lakes, followed sprawling glaciers and crossed rushing rivers to stand beneath these granite pinnacles." By Bike "The best cycling was through the Cordoba Pass, a slither of a road snaking through weird, weathered rock formations and red mountains that are home to puma, hare and condor." How to Have the Adventure of a Lifetime Exploring remote jungles, mountains or deserts accessible only by 4 4, mountain bike, horse or the more traditional transport on foot Climbing snow–capped mountains or Horse–Trekking in an isolated forest Trekking along the Inca Trail to view the incredible achievements of the sophisticated civilizations that once flourished in South America Canoeing up the Amazon, Birding in the wetlands or, if you feel truly intrepid, White–Water Rafting over mountain rapids Any of these may lead you to fantastic wildlife, peaceful Indian villages, old mines, mighty glaciers or breathtaking ruins.
