From the ice fields of Southern Patagonia to the sun-kissed beauty of Torres del Paine National Park, South America is a land of unsurpassed natural beauty—awash in ancient history, mind-boggling landscapes, entrancing culture, and non-stop fun. The colossal peaks of Patagonia and the Andes beg to be climbed, while the enveloping rainforests that surround the mighty Amazon seem designed to be explored. There’s a side of South America that’s perfect for every traveller—including you.

Our own @keepingitveal kicked off the week with this stunning shot of Iguassu Falls. Located in the tropical jungles of the three-way border between Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay, they are wilder than Victoria Falls and taller than Niagara.

Thanks to @krisdads for capturing this shot of frozen Patagonia.
