South America is a popular destination for gap years, with Brazil and Peru common destinations to head to. However, for a getaway that is filled with amazing activities and stunning scenery that is truly unique, make sure you travel to Patagonia.
When you think of Latin America, what springs to mind straight away? The Amazon Jungle, Andes, and mega-cities like Rio de Janeiro perhaps? This vast and varied continent is home to some of the world’s rarest wildlife, most fascinating indigenous cultures, and vibrant lifestyles. From the vibrant Buenos Aires to the grand Inca ruins of Machu Picchu, you are guaranteed to remember your time here.
