Why Active Adventures South America

What makes our South America adventures so special?

An Active South America trip is no ordinary adventure vacation. We believe South America's stunning scenery and wildlife needs to be experienced in the raw, not just seen through a bus or boat window.

We create the opportunity to explore South America's culture, incredible scenery, wildlife and outdoor activities. We take people from all walks of life, who may or may not have a great deal of experience in adventure travel. We design trips that take you to extraordinary locations in the most breathtaking parts of Ecuador, Peru, Patagonia, and the Galapagos Islands. To get there, we'll hike, bike, paddle, float and fly. You don't need to be extremely fit or active to come on one of our trips, but you need to be keen to get outside and experience South America's incredible scenery in an active manner!

Our small size and local contacts mean we have the flexibility to work with you to ensure your trip is the best fit possible and we can customise any trip to suit you. We offer a variety of small group adventures in South America and we can put together any trip to accommodate any particular interest. One of the best things about travelling with us is that you have the opportunity to explore plenty of options everywhere we go.

We do some activities as a group, but there are always opportunities to get out and explore on your own. An Active Adventures trip is not a hiking tour, but we'll do some awesome hikes. It's not a cycling tour, but you can do some incredible rides. There are some great opportunities to go snorkelling or diving in the Galapagos Islands, but you won't miss out if water sports are not your thing. We try to minimise time on the road as much as possible and focus on enjoying our time in the great outdoors.

We like to visit some exciting locations by bike, on foot, rafting and canyoning, but we also enjoy our creature comforts. Our days end with hot showers, clean rooms and nice meals. We even arrange rest days, where you can read a book all day or shop till you drop. Most important of all - our aim is to exceed your expectations and we will do all we can to make this vacation the best one you've ever had. We've worked hard to put together the best trips in the places we go to in South America.

Galapagos Tortuga

“We had a fantastic time in Galapagos and enjoyed days packed with activities. This was our first trip using Active Adventures and we were impressed with well organised days, varied activites from bike riding, climbing volcano, kayaking, snorkelling and enjoying fantastic wild life in Galapagos.
Pepo -our guide is extremely knowledgable and most lovely person who made our days fun and interesting. We enjoyed the variety of different islands visited and loved the taste of local life we were introduced to, including family tree house in highlands of San Cristobal and local restaurants sharing the benches with sea lions.
Snorkelling with sea turtles, sharks and sea lions was unforgettable. The scenery was breathtaking with beautiful beaches, amazing rock creations of lava tunnels and tranquil bays and sunsets. Ocean kayaking was fun- watching penguins and blue boobies, pelicans waiting for fisherman's left overs....Each island brought its unique experience and history with it. We had opportunity to dive as well as snorkel and the trip organisers gave us plenty of opportunities to meet all our interest and needs. Our group of 10 was excellent size and felt more like a big family holiday. I would recommend Active Adventures to everyone as this was a fantastic activity holiday and a good value for money. The tour was organised with thoughtfulness by very friendly and knowledgeable staff. We felt safe and extremely well looked after. Thank you to every one and especially Pepo! Pepo, please give our regards to your dad who joined us for a bit of our trip. We will treasure the photo of him and Pepo in the giant tortoise shell!”
