South America doesn’t get the love it deserves.
Europe and Asia feature defined backpacker “trails” that have been well-worn thanks to decades of Lonely Planet-inspired travelers. While South America sees its fair share of visitors too, much of it remains pristine and ripe for exploration. Here are three of the continent’s most bucket list-worthy trips.

Exploring the Amazon River may be the most audacious journey an adventure traveler can undertake. Some rustic lodging and other services exist along its 4,300-mile route but, for the most part, travelers are completely on their own. It’s remote, wild, and rugged. Malaria, piranhas, river pirates, and whirlpools are very real dangers. All of which means it’s best to go with a guide who knows the area and how to get out alive. Untamed Path Adventures provides a bespoke guided expedition that’s like a highlight reel of everything the Amazon River has to offer. The 12-day journey includes riding downriver in a dugout canoe, beach camping under the rainforest canopy, fishing the Amazon River, and landing a tiny Cessna prop plane on a dirt runway in the middle of the jungle.
