About Active Adventures South America

Not just another tour company. 

We believe that scenery needs to be experienced, not seen through a bus window. We'll take you, whether by foot, bike or kayak, to the glacier-clad peaks of Patagonia; the Inca ruins of Peru's Machu Picchu; the giant tortoises of the Galapagos Islands; the arresting views from Cotapaxi Volcano in Ecuador; the unique highlands surrounding Lake Titicaca; the hundreds of rivers that feed the mighty Amazon - there's more than enough to do and see here to fill several bucket lists.

About Active South America

We run our own trips, suitable for real people.

You don't need to be a triathlete to enjoy our adventures; we offer a variety of different options to suit everyone. We take real people, who may or may not have a great deal of experience in the outdoors, to the most scenic and rewarding parts of South America. Clients on a typical trip will have a range of experience - from folks who have spent a couple of days in the backcountry in their lives, to those who spend most weekends in the hills.  

Not your average South American vacation package! 
About Active South America

Interested? We have happy clients all over the world who have taken our Patagonia, Peru, Ecuador and Galapagos Islands trips who'd love to tell you all about it! For referrals, please call or email us and we'd be happy to put you in touch with some of our previous clients.

An Active South America trip is not a scenic tour, but you'll go to incredible places. It's not a triathlon, but you'll get your heart rate up and the endorphins flowing. It's not a lecture on history and wildlife, but you'll gain personal insights from guides who know the places you'll visit like the back of their hand.

    There is no way we could have planned all the adventures we had on this trip. The logistics and coordination efforts were well thought out. Our guide was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun to be with. The accommodations were wonderful, food fit for a king and animals to entertain us at every turn. It truly was a trip to remember!!

    Simply Awesome

    Incredible doesn't cover it. This trip gave a truly comprehensive Patagonia experience. Congratulations must go to whoever designed the sequence/structure. Each day presented us with a never-to-be-topped experience, promptly upped a notch the next..for the FULL trip duration!! No faults with accommodation, meals, transportation etc. Jay was absolutely awesome (I'll be running out of superlatives soon). Personable, great leader, communicator and guide. No problem ever became a problem. He and his brother Gem made this a real ILE (incredible life experience). Still don't know how he managed to arrange for the variety of weather and wildlife. For anyone thinking about doing this trip - don't think, DO. And I would recommend Active adventures!

    Absolutely AMAZING!

    The Condor trip was definitely a trip of a lifetime! My husband and I loved every aspect of this amazing experience. We got to see scenery that was straight out of a magazine. The guides Cynthia and Gem were outstanding! I love them both! Our group of 14 was beyond my expectations. They were some of the best people I have ever met and feel enriched by this experience. Thank you Active Adventures!

    Wonderful Trip

    Terrific Trip!! Beautiful Country! Terrific Organization! Wonderful Guides! Great Food! I was very impressed with Cynthia and Puma and all the others that contributed to making this kind of trip possible. It is a sign of a well run organization when it values and hires such terrific people. They took very good care of us, were extremely well educated, and were very easy to get along with not to mention patient and fun. The Inca Trail views were absolutely breath taking but this really was a very well rounded trip. I enjoyed the cities of Cuzco and Puno, the trip to Porto Maldonado and the jungle with the extremely interesting hotel, and Lake Titicaca with our trips to a couple of the islands and stay with one of the families. Our tour of Lima was a great way to finish off our trip. One more thing-the food was absolutely the best. I have never eaten that well.
