Discover Scenic Latin America On Foot

With its diverse landscapes, Latin America is home to many of the world's top destinations for hiking and trekking. It covers almost every terrain you can think of, from the sun-baked Atacama desert to the luscious green rainforest of the Amazon, the soaring mountains and crisp white glaciers of Patagonia, to the high alpine peaks and volcanos of the Andes. There are many National Parks to hike and camp, as well as beautiful landscapes beyond the parks. One of the most popular places for hiking and trekking in Latin America is the beautiful untouched Patagonian region of Chile and Argentina. Another popular choice is the Sacred Valley of the Incas in Peru, but if you are feeling adventurous don't let that stop you as there are countless other exciting options to choose from, like the trek to the lost city in Colombia and hiking the wildlife trails of the Galapagos Islands.

With so many routes and treks to choose from it can be hard to choose, depending on your skill level, some may or may not be suitable for your needs. Your Latin Routes specialist will be able to advise you of some of the most popular and beautiful destinations to take a hiking or trekking holiday. You can do a day trip or a longer and more challenging trip if you prefer. We recommend you go with a guide or on a group trip but fortunately, there are plenty of options. Below, are some of the most popular parks and destinations for hiking in Latin America but please ask your Latin Routes specialist for more details as we have a wealth of knowledge about walking and trekking holidays in Latin America and can help you choose your perfect itinerary to ensure you have a dream holiday wherever you choose.
