Right place, right time
When to be where in Spain, Portugal, Latin America and Antarctica
Hiking in Patagonia
With long daylight hours, you can spend all day hiking to glacial lagoons below some iconic peaks.
Pristine Patagonia by road
Discover the natural diversity, rewilded parklands and cultural fabric of Patagonia on a summer road trip.
Head into the Pacific to seek Blue, Fin, Humpback and Minke whales, plus Orca and Bottlenose Dolphins.
Cruises to Cape Horn
Sail the Magellan Straits to see wildlife and icebergs on an expedition cruise, en route to hopefully land on mythical Cape Horn.
Into olive season
It's the start of the olive harvest, the sun still shines, Alhambra crowds disperse - time to revel in central Andalucía's beauty.
Dry season begins, with everything lovely and green and the Caribbean less humid; lots of festivals and traditional celebrations.
First penguin chicks
Falklands & South Georgia
Austral summer brings longer days as penguin eggs hatch: first in the Falklands, then South Georgia and finally on the Peninsula.
Long walking days
Long days and ideal walking conditions in Patagonia, though Bariloche gets busy as Porteños leave Buenos Aires around Christmas.
The waterfalls of Iguassu and the Chapada Diamantina are at their fullest, whilst low water levels in the Amazon allow you to explore on foot.
The start of the dry season brings gorgeous days, humpback whales arrive and the Olive Ridley turtle 'arribada' is at its biggest.
The Galápagos turn green as the misty 'garua' season ends and rainfall increases; the fledging albatross chicks are a highlight.
