Backpackers’ guide to South America – 7 destinations you don’t want to miss

Posted on

Sucre, Bolivia:

You won’t be short on things to see and do in Sucre, the capital of Bolivia and a popular choice among travellers. This city sits at 2,810m above sea level and has a rich history, while also having the benefit of being close to the Andes, where you can go trekking or take climbing tours out into the mountains.

Patagonia, Argentina:

If you’re feeling adventurous, you won’t regret a visit to Patagonia, one of the most remote regions on earth – but arguably one of the most beautiful. This region has a well-established network of hiking trails that make it ideal for exploring on foot, however, compared to other backpacking destinations across South America it can be much more expensive. This is due to there being fewer hostels and accommodation, and the fact that all food has to be imported into the region, among other factors. While you’re there, be sure to visit Torres del Paine National Park, which has two treks – the W and the O routes – and an epic landscape that you’re sure to find captivating.
