South America | Travel & Adventures

Andean ExplorerIt's hard to imagine a time when Patagonia and Machu Picchu were only explored through history books, but not long ago this was the case. In fact, during our 40 years of traveling to South America, MTS became the first US company to lead adventures to Patagonia, the now famous Inca Trail leading to Machu Picchu, and the Galápagos Islands.

Award-winning Trips. Trek to Machu Picchu on our Andean adventure selected by National Geographic Traveler as 50 Tours of a Lifetime; explore the spectacular glaciers of Patagonia on our hiking adventures; or cruise with us to the Galápagos, as featured in The New York Times & USA Today.

Pioneers in South America Travel. Besides becoming the first US company to introduce visitors to Patagonia & the Inca Trail, MTS led the first ever commercial climb of Aconcagua—the tallest mountain in the Americas—in 1972, and the first rafting descents of Chile's Bio-Bio & Baker Rivers in 1978 and 1992, respectively.
