Welcome to South America. A vast landscape overflowing with breath-taking natural wonders and cosmopolitan cities. Allow us to introduce you to incredible sights, cultures and unique experiences on this 23-day trip of a lifetime!
We start in Brazil, the land of samba, Carnival and passion. Vibrant Rio is known for its incredible beauty and you will visit the iconic sites of Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf Mountain and the city’s renowned beaches. Journey inland to wild rainforests and witness one of Earth’s natural marvels, the mighty Iguazú Falls. Feel the intense power of these tremendous cascades - the world’s largest waterfall system.
Crossing into Argentina, explore Buenos Aires’ historic quarters to discover contrasting neighbourhoods and experience the passion of tango. Journey into the Flatlands (Pampas), an area of vast open spaces, far-away horizons and green countryside, inhabited by gauchos, (men on horseback) and quaint manor house traditions (the so-called estancias). Continuing south, Patagonia evokes images of glaciers, rugged mountains, fjords, lakes and raging rivers. This breath-taking area is home to the most stunning landscapes.
Conclude your tour in Chile’s modern capital, Santiago. Its small colonial centre is offset by shopping malls, skyscrapers, shady boulevards and trendy bohemian neighbourhoods. Built in the shadow of the Andean mountains and surrounded by Mediterranean-style vineyards which produce Chile’s renowned wines.
