What is it about this part of the continent that makes it so attractive? What does it come in your mind? Adventure, exotic, the Amazon, wildlife, Galapagos? Carnival, lots of dancing, beautiful landscapes, Andes, Spanish, perhaps even coffee? Bluntly put, placing all the possibilities and experiences available to be enjoyed under one website is impossible; especially when it comes to a destination as rich and diverse as South America. But this is fine; as a matter of fact, this is excellent! Journeys aren’t supposed to be, limited or even “destination-oriented”. It is a constant exploration, a continuum of discoveries and inspirations. It is “living-in-itself”. Now, this is an analogy, of course. But let us not forget, that a journey – as in traveling – is an essential part of us. After all, this is what made us so successful as living beings. We have been tirelessly exploring and conquering; and this applies to a social scale as well as to a personal scale. If we are to compare, journeys are like, composing music perhaps. It is our rhythms, melodies, notes… It is what, why, when and how we want to play. We at Surtrek believe this is what makes us humans so precious. This is our treasure. So regardless of the “destination”, we invite you to keep exploring without ever drying up your curiosity. Dear traveler, keep discovering.
So where are we? This is a land of the driest deserts, just kilometers away from the most humid, rich and biologically diverse jungles on earth. A land of the largest mirrors that reflect the horizon itself. It is a land of majestic peaks and pristine beaches. The land of celebrations, colors, evolution, nature, culture… History being manifested on the ancient ruins, cradle to one of the most ancient gods. A land so rich with fine wine and avant-garde gastronomy; intense coffee and subtle teas… A “neighborhood” of warm people and harmonious communities synchronized with nature… This is a kingdom of contrasts, an “ecosystem” of experiences and life being manifested. This is, our proud and precious South America.
Now, what is it that you are looking for? Common travel ideas to this exciting place are, of course, active adventures like sailing in the Galapagos Islands and trekking to the Machu Picchu ruins. But how about a more luxurious trip? Say, the sedate pleasures of wine-tasting in renowned wineries and staying at historic haciendas? How about a more “spiritual” journey? A week-long trek following the footsteps of the conquerors in the middle of the largest paramo. Reaching the farthest point on earth from the nucleus. A pilgrimage to the shaman of the Kichwas. Whatever it is, it is personal. Whatever the occasion (retirement vacation? Honeymoon trip for a lovely couple?), you’re certain to find out that this part of the American continent, is limitless. You’ll meet in no time some of the warmest people you’ve ever come across, be part of a vibrant mix of sophisticated cities, exotic wildlife, glamorous nightlife, off-the-beaten-track adventures and outlandishly plush resorts.
