Self-guided Adventures in South America


This is the perfect combination of exploring on your own, yet having someone help you plan a trip which is otherwise quite complex to put together.

-Mary Kolsrud

Whether you are trekking to Machu Picchu on the Salkantay Trek or visiting the famed towers in Torres del Paine on the W-Trek or O-Trek, South America always delivers just the right balance of excellence and experience. South America is a large and diverse continent with so much to offer. However, most South American outdoor experiences tend to be guided. We are extremely excited to make self-guided tours possible for experienced adventurers who don't need a guide and want to choose their own dates, pace and hiking buddies.

Our partners in South America have been sought out and hand-selected by our Chief Adventure Officer, Brittany Haas. She has met with each of them in person and is confident they will deliver the same value to our customers that Alpenventures is reputed for in the Alps. While we currently only offer the classic adventures in South America, we will be announcing other treks that only the locals know about in the near future. Stay tuned to our Facebook and Instagram pages to keep up to date on our tour offering in South America.

The Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu is quickly gaining international notoriety and offers a more challenging and dramatic approach than the Inca Trail to the iconic Inca ruins. Stunning mountain views on the first couple days at high altitude in the Andes will leave hikers breathless for more than one reason.
