Adventure travel to South America

If you are tired of rain and cold weather that does not let you leave the house for weeks now, maybe it is time to start thinking about taking a short trip to a place where the winter has not taken its toll. If you are not sure what you want to do, think about adventure travel to Nicaragua, or if you also want to visit the rest of South America, here we have a list of most interesting places you should definitely see while you are there.

Multisport Tour
Nicaragua, the land of lakes and volcanoes has to find its place on your bucket list among other “must visit” countries. This is one of the rare places on Earth where you can climb active volcanoes and even swim in the crater lakes. Another thing that bikers are going to love is that this place offers is biking tours of the mountains, volcanoes and tropical forests that surround them. With professional tour guides, you do not need to worry whether you are a beginner or an expert, as they will guide you through the whole experience, so you can both learn the basics or improve the skills you already have.

On the other hand, for those who prefer staying on the beach, Nicaragua, as well as Costa Rica, have the waves perfect for surfing. Many beaches are untouched and not crowded with tourists, so if you are already a skilled surfer you can go there by yourself and enjoy the weather, water and the sound of the wind and waves. And for those who want to try it out for the first time, there are friendly local surfers on the beach that will be more than happy to help you learn.

Lake Atitlan
If you find yourself in Guatemala, be sure to visit Lake Atitlan, as the nature has stayed untouched and unspoiled by the modern civilization. The weather is always beautiful, and the views are breathtaking. Also, there are villages near the lake, where you can meet local Mayans and learn about their culture, as they still live and act according to the tradition of ancient Mayan civilization. Guatemala too offers biking tours around the lake, with local guides that will take you to secluded places with breathtaking views.

Machu Picchu
One of the world’s most intriguing destinations that made to the list of seven world wonders, still remains a mystery to a modern man. Many people who have climbed to see the so called “Lost City”, described their experience as spiritual and magical. However, before deciding to go on this trip, you need to be prepared for climbing really high, amateur climbers can set out to this adventure too, but be sure that you are in good physical shape.

Iguazu Falls
Exactly between Brazil and Argentina, you will find one of the planet’s most beautiful sights, Igazu Falls. It is a 3 km long chain of waterfalls, surrounded with rainforests packed with unique wildlife. There are almost 300 falls that can be seen close up from the boat, take amazing pictures, but prepare to get a little bit wet. For those truly adventurous souls, you can go snorkeling, just be sure that you have a professional nearby, and that you are not too close to the slopes.

So pack your bags, swimming suit and cycling clothes, go visit some of the most beautiful places in South America, and experience a dream-like vacation.
