South America

For a continent that boasts two of the world’s ‘new seven wonders’, and stunning natural landscapes, South America is still a relatively undiscovered destination for many.

Among the sights waiting to take your breath away are Rio’s statue of Christ the Redeemer, the sacred Valley of the Incas in Peru, and the long-lost mountaintop city of Machu Picchu, hidden for centuries in the Andes. Colourful Costa Rica is growing in popularity too and no wonder with rainforests teeming with colourful birdlife and exotic mammals.

Food and drink fans will also wonder why they didn’t arrive earlier, as South America is proud home to some of the world’s tenderest beef, freshest seafood and delicious wines from world-renowned vineyards.
