We have used Southern Explorations for two extensive South America trips (Patagonia & Lima-Cusco-Machu Picchu). Both were well organized and excellent values. The company is attentive to traveler needs and provides informative information pre-trip. Their local contacts are top notch with fantastic guides and support teams, and itinerary and accommodation options for a variety of budgets.

They are also quick to respond to any issues via local contacts and US support -- LatAm cancelled one of our flights and rather than being stuck for hours in a line of angry travelers and frantic airline employees, a call back to the States had Southern Explorations immediately in direct contact with LatAm rebooking our flight for the next day, on our schedule, and also arranging for local transport to the hotel for an unexpected extra night in Cusco. Cannot more highly recommend Southern Explorations. We look forward to our next trip.

Again, we had an awesome experience in South America. Gabriel, our guide in Rio was amazing, as was Andre at Iguazu. The hotels were awesome and service was excellent!

    About Southern Explorations

    Seattle-based Southern Explorations is a leading purveyor of adventure-oriented small group and customized tours to Latin American destinations. Wide ranging activities may include trekking and hiking, camping, kayaking, whitewater rafting, snorkeling and Scuba diving, sailing, skiing and snowshoeing – or wine tasting and wildlife viewing. 

    What Makes Them Stand Out? 

    They have a commitment to expending resources in the local communities they visit, hiring local guides and support staff, using locally owned lodgings, and making donations to local conservation organizations. 

    Who Travels With Them?

    Southern Explorations Tours tend to attract adventurous travelers in their 30s and 40s as well as fit older travelers. 

    Where Do They Operate?

    Primarily South America, including Peru, Ecuador, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, and Colombia, as well as Central America (Costa Rica and Panama). They also offer small ship adventure cruises in the Amazon, Galapagos Islands, and Antarctica. 

    How Does It Work?

    You can choose between pre-set land or sea itineraries or they will arrange tours customized to your specifications. Accommodations are locally owned and range from three to five star quality, including haciendas, refugios, and lodges as well as hotels and cruise ships. 

    Why Travel With Them? 

    Staff members are experienced adventure travel experts who each travel to Latin America every year, inspecting accommodations and sites and keeping up to date with field offices. Guides are local, know the territory intimately, and are fluent in both English and Spanish.
