A new decade is before us, and the travel experts at Journey Latin America are looking to the future of travel. This year promises many exciting developments in Central and South America, including a rise in travel to off the beaten track destinations that few know about.
With 40 years’ experience, we pride ourselves on championing alternative and overlooked destinations. We pave the way for discerning travellers looking to escape the crowds, discover the great outdoors and blaze trails on pioneering adventures.
Coming soon are two brand new holidays each of which incorporates a new region soon to be available to intrepid travellers:

Brazil


The Cerrado is an extraordinarily biodiverse region and home to jaguar, ocelot, armadillo, anteater, maned wolf and the grey eagle. Be one of the first to access this hardly-visited part of Brazil and see first-hand the extraordinary quantity of wildlife at luxury lodge Pousada Trijuncao.

Colombia

Located in the southeast of Colombia, a stunning 6-hour road journey from Bogotá over high mountain passes, the llanos are Colombia’s very own Wild West. Sparsely populated and strikingly traditional, this is a land where the cowboy lifestyle still reigns supreme. Visitors can choose from simple farmstead accommodation to a new luxury tented camp.

Plus here are some of our most popular off-the-beaten-track holidays, available to book today:

Off-the-beaten-track Argentina: Remote Puna Adventure

Feeling as removed and remote as the wilderness of Antarctica, the Puna de Atacama is a vast, other-worldly, arid landscape of extremes. On your six-day, guided expeditionary road trip you will be almost alone in high altitude desert mountain scenery.

Self-drive Ecuador: Back road of the Andes

An exhilarating adventure exploring the cloud forests of Ecuador’s Andean foothills on the fringe of the Amazon basin. Winding its way south parallel with the Andean spine is Route 45, a road which connects Quito to many otherwise inaccessible destinations.

Argentina Wildlife: Tropical wetlands and Patagonia

The unique locations of the Iberá wetlands and Bahía Bustamente are truly remote, in areas of little infrastructure. Bahia Bustamante offers a taste of authentic Patagonia in one of Argentina’s long- forgotten corners. The area is rich in seabirds and other marine life whilst Iberá’s wetlands afford incredible aquatic wildlife viewing opportunities.

Signature Paraguay: The Missions and the Chaco
