About South America

South America's culture stems from a diversity of influences. Many of the continent's indigenous communities still maintain their ancient customs and traditions, but successive colonisation by arrivals from Europe, Africa and Asia have left their cultural calling cards, shaping aspects such as language, architecture and cuisine.

As with other continents, South America's climate varies depending upon location. Whist the southernmost regions towards the equator experience high temperatures, humidity and heavy tropical rainfall, the Andean areas which fall within Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia have distinct seasons: wet and dry. Again, altitude and location has a bearing upon these but the months from May to October are generally the most agreeable weather-wise.

A South America rail vacation with Great Rail Journeys is both an adventure and an inspirational experience. The combination of awe-inspiring natural beauty, diverse wildlife, ancient and modern cultures and historic treasures that you'll encounter as you travel through this captivating continent ensure that this will be a vacation you'll always remember.
