From the Amazon to Patagonia, South America's wild topography is full of adventures. Whether it's learning to tango in Buenos Aires, trekking to Machu Picchu, or cruising around the Galapagos Islands, there's something for every type of traveler. 

And best of all, now is a great time to snag a bargain on tours and activities thanks to a huge range of discounts and special offers. There's never been a better time to book, whether you're heading to South America soon or planning for a future trip. Not sure where to start? Here are just a few of the continent’s top spots to add to your itinerary.

A visit to Peru isn't complete without a pilgrimage to Machu Picchu, but it isn’t the country's only star attraction. After exploring the Sacred Valley around Cusco, embark on a cruise across Lake Titicaca; take flight over the mysterious Nazca Lines; or discover the colonial landmarks and beautiful beaches of Lima. 

Check off Rio must-sees like Corcovado's Christ the Redeemer statue and Sugarloaf Mountain. Then go see Iguassu Falls, one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

Argentina
South America's second-largest country offers a thrilling variety of experiences, from celebrating Buenos Aires' heritage with a tango dance class to a day trip to a gaucho ranch. Venture further afield to pay a visit to the glaciers of El Calafate or go wine tasting in Mendoza.

A short ferry ride from Buenos Aires, Uruguay is an easy side-trip from neighboring Argentina, and its small size means a lot can be seen even on a short trip. Hit the beach at the resort town of Punta del Este or admire the stately architecture in laid-back Montevideo.

Stretching from the Atacama Desert to the Patagonian glaciers, Chile's highlights are plentiful and include historical Santiago, UNESCO-listed Valparaiso and the prestigious Concha y Toro Winery. Travelers can also head south to explore Torres del Paine National Park.

Bolivia
Sandwiched between the Andes and the Amazon, landlocked Bolivia can leave visitors feeling like they've stepped back in time. Experience the startling scenery on a tour of the Uyuni Salt Flats or explore the shores of Lake Titicaca.

Tour a major city like Bogota to experience both historic and modern Colombia; cruise to the Rosario Islands from Cartagena; or set out on an epic multi-day trek from Santa Marta.

Lively Quito is the obvious place to start a tour through Ecuador, but the Galapagos Islands are a must-see thanks to their biodiversity. A multi-day cruise offers the chance to get up close to marine iguanas, giant tortoises, Galapagos penguins and many more magnificent creatures.
