Central & South America Adventure Tours

Ancient history, awe-inspiring landscapes, engaging culture

From Andean glory to Amazonian mystique, we have long been captivated by the delicately woven tapestry experienced on our Central & South America adventure tours. In fact, MT Sobek began exploring the Andes in 1969 and we organized the first Galápagos adventure cruising tour in 1970. We pioneered commercial travel in Patagonia, Chile, and Costa Rica throughout the 1970s — long before other travel companies. And we continue to lead the way in Central & South America adventure vacations with over 40 immersive cultural and wildlife adventures, led by esteemed guiding teams who make the real MT Sobek difference.

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 and USA Today.

Pioneers in Latin America Travel.

Besides becoming the first US company to introduce visitors to Patagonia, 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.
