South America is a continent like no other. Rich in ancient wonders, it is home to UNESCO world heritage sites such as the stunning Perito Moreno Glacier in Argentina, mysterious Nazca lines in Peru and the colourful city of Cartagena, Colombia. It’s a melting pot of culture, from the legends of the Incas to world-dominating football teams.
The Amazon and the Galapagos Islands are teeming with unique wildlife you won’t find anywhere else and you’ll be awe-struck by natural beauty of the Valdes Peninsula, Torres del Paine and the Bolivian Salt Flats. This diversity in experience is what makes South America one of the best places to travel solo, with solo female travel leading the charge, and Argentina and Brazil topping their list of the best countries for solo travel in South America.
