About Us

40 years creating journeys to Latin America

Contours Travel is Australia’s longest running and most experienced South American travel specialist, creating seamless itineraries, authentic experiences and lasting memories for our clients since 1975. Our expert consultants have travelled to every corner of this incredibly diverse region- from Mexico’s Copper Canyon to the cobbled streets of Havana, from the lush forests of Costa Rica to the spectacular Atacama Desert, from Colombia’s coffee region to the untouched wilderness of Antarctica and everywhere in between.
