Seven Natural Wonders in South America

Every continent in the world has some spectacular natural sights, and South America is no different, with many of the beautiful sights awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status for their amazing beauty. Whether you are exploring in the deep forests at the heart of the continent or along the high mountain range of the Andes, there are some amazing natural wonders to see, and all are sites that will give you some fantastic memories. If you are planning a visit to South America, then these are all sites worth including on your itinerary.

Iguazu Falls

These huge waterfalls are located on the border between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil, and have a great width that allows you to have an amazing panorama of the waterfalls. The sheer volume of water is impressive, and seeing the plume of spray rising above the falls is also very impressive. From the Argentine side there is a small train that can take you to the Devil's Throat, a viewpoint where you can see the falls on three sides all around you for the most spectacular view of all.

Atacama Desert

This high altitude desert is almost six hundred miles in length, and is one of the most otherworldly landscapes that you can see without leaving the earth. Commonly known for being the driest place in the world, there are some amazing sights such as the Valley of the Moon, named because of its similarity with the lunar landscapes, while there are some patches of life, such as the shallow lagoons where you can spot Andean flamingos.

Amazon Rainforest

This huge forest covers much of the central portion of South America, and it is named after the Amazon River which flows through the huge forest. While visits to the rainforest are usually done with guides because of the safety aspect,the stunning range of animal species that can be spotted in the forest is remarkable, while taking a trip along the Amazon is a once in a lifetime experience.

Tierra Del Fuego[post_ads_2]

A remarkable landscape that is found at the southern tip of the continent, the Tierra del Fuego is an archipelago of islands that is divided between Argentina and Chile. Amazing snow capped mountain ranges provide the backdrop, while some of the islands have forests where the trees are almost entirely horizontal due to the fierce winds that sweep the islands, while it is also a great spot for spotting animals such as sea lions and whales.

Galapagos Islands

Although they lie several hundred miles off the west coast of the continent, the Galapagos Islands are a part of Ecuador, and their amazing biodiversity has helped a tourist industry grow in the area. From spotting animals such as the Galapagos Tortoise and the Blue Footed Booby, through to discovering remote beaches and stunning scuba diving sites, this is truly an amazing destination like nowhere else in the world.

Salar de Uyuni

This is the largest salt flat in the world, and is located high in the Andes at over 3,600 meters above sea level. While they are amazing in the dry, it is after a period of rain when the flats really are at their best, and the thin film of water on the flats reflects the sky to make for amazing scenes and some fantastic photography opportunities. At the heart of the flats there is a small island, where you will find a few basic facilities, and usually several 4x4 vehicles that are exploring the flats.

Kaieteur Falls

Located in the small nation of Guyana, these falls are truly spectacular, but are rarely seen by visitors simply because they are so remote. These falls have the largest single drop in the world at over 200 meters, and the spray is sent high into the air and over the lush green forest around the falls. Although opportunities to visit are rare, this is another sight that is wonderful to see.
