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.

Using Alpenventures Unguided made it easy to plan my vacation!

Alpenventures made all the lodging reservations and transportation connections
so easy.

-Danielle Bradshaw

Having a knowledgeable person doing all the "heavy lifting" took a lot of the pressure off of us, so all we had to do was hike and enjoy the breathtaking scenery.

-Lisa Fay

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.
