It appears that we're not sailing to this destination at present. While we await the launch of our new itineraries, please browse our exciting range of voyages and destinations.
South America consists of 12 countries and is home to over 385 million people. Brazil is the largest country, taking up more than half the continent's landmass: only slightly smaller than the USA. Brazil is home to one of the world's ten biggest cities: São Paulo.
Wet and dry.
The two most famous bodies of water in South America are Lake Titicaca, and the Amazon river, the largest in the world by volume. In contrast, the Chilean Atacama Desert is the driest non-polar desert in the world: here, some areas go without rain for years at a time.
The region has a fantastic blend of Portuguese, Spanish and indigenous roots, resulting in several languages and a wide array of customs, festivals and foods. Carnivals are well-known spectacles, dancing the tango is a must-try, and visitors can enjoy the freshest coffee they've ever tasted.
