South American Adventure Travel

South American adventure travel is swiftly gaining in popularity as more and more people discover the beauty and diversity of this continent. From roughing it in the Andes to enjoying the colours and intrigue of one of the annual festivals, there is something for everyone in South America. Adventure travel usually entails a lengthy trip that traverses a large portion of the continent and requires participants to get involved and really engage with the people and places.

Choosing the Right South American Adventure Travel Company

South American adventure travel is quite an undertaking – you are essentially entrusting a few weeks of your life as well as a significant amount of money to a tour company. You need to be comfortable that you will be safe, happy and well taken care of. One of the ways to do this is to choose the right adventure travel company in the first place. This is not as daunting as it sounds as long as you follow some good advice:

  • Choose a South American adventure travel company that has the right trip itinerary for you. Such a trip is usually a once in a life time thing and you don’t want to regret missing out on something. Don’t settle for a trip that ALMOST meets your interests; there are plenty of companies out there, so don’t just pick any old one until you find the right trip for you. You could also look for a company that will help you tailor the right South American adventure travel trip for you.
  • Beware of South American adventure travel companies that have fancy brochures and big advertising budgets. While those companies may appear good on paper, it is possible that their large advertising budget might come at the expense of quality tours.
  • Try and find out if the guides for your South American adventure travel trip have actually taken such a tour themselves. This firsthand experience of being in the participant’s shoes makes a huge difference.
  • Before you book, ask about the companies vehicles. Often overland truck trips pile people into uncomfortable / cramped trucks. Try to find a company that prioritises space and comfort over profits.

Oasis Overland is one such South American adventure company that encompasses all of the above and is renowned for their well thought out, quality overland trips.
