Welcome to South America’s largest and most populous country. The day is free to explore on your own.

This afternoon, meet your Tour Director and fellow travelling companions for a drive along famous Ipanema and Copacabana Beaches to the base of 1,300-foot-high Sugar Loaf Mountain.

Next, toast the start of a memorable holiday from atop Sugar Loaf Mountain with caipirinhas, a favorite Brazilian cocktail, during a welcome cocktail party. (B)

Day 3: Rio de Janeiro.

Today, visit the statue of Christ the Redeemer crowning CORCOVADO MOUNTAIN, a rounded peak rising 2,300 feet from the bay below. Take the scenic cog railway ride to its top, where a 360-degree panorama affords sweeping views. Proceed to bustling downtown Rio. View the Sambodromo and visit the CATHEDRAL. This afternoon, you may wish to join an optional trip into a local favela to see where 20% of Rio’s population lives. Visits include a community centre and a school.

Day 5: Rio de Janeiro - Iguassu Falls.

A flight from Rio takes you to IGUASSU FALLS. Experience the clouds of spray, the incessant roar, and the surrounding luxuriant tropical growth that make this an unforgettable natural wonder. Head into Brazil’s Iguassu National Park to enjoy the magnificent panorama of waterfalls from the Brazilian side. Your Local Guide introduces the spectacle of this 2-mile-wide torrential downpour, with some cataracts as high as 250 feet—it’s nothing short of hypnotic! (B,D)

Day 6: Igaussu Falls.

Today, journey to the Argentine side of IGUASSU FALLS, where you will take the ECOLOGICAL JUNGLE TRAIN and enjoy a closer perspective on a walking tour of the falls. Meander along the walkways from atop the falls, and enjoy an exhilarating perspective looking over the precipice of the falls as the water plunges to the rocks below. You will also have the chance to walk through the rainforest on the lower falls trails that will bring you up close to some of the smaller falls. Return to the hotel, where the remainder of the day is at your leisure. (B)

Day 7: Iguassu Falls - Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Today, fly to Buenos Aires. After arriving, an orientation walk acquaints you with the “Paris of South America” and its wide boulevards and outdoor cafés. (B)

Day 8: Buenos Aires.

Your sightseeing starts in La Boca, a colourful district and site of the city’s first port. Take a short walking tour of this unique neighbourhood and then on to San Telmo, famous for its late-colonial buildings and a popular gathering spot for artists. At Plaza de Mayo, see La Casa Rosada (the President’s Pink House) and the METROPOLITAN CATHEDRAL, housing San Martin’s Mausoleum. Drive past the ornate Colon Opera House before reaching RECOLETA CEMETERY, burial site of Eva Perón. Next, learn how to make a traditional Argentinean dish during your EMPANADA COOKING CLASS. After an afternoon at leisure, top off the evening at a famous TANGO CLUB. Start with a DANCE LESSON, followed by farewell dinner featuring Argentine steaks and other local specialties, and end with a show featuring flawless performances of Latin America’s most sensuous dance—the Tango! (B,D)

Day 9: Buenos Aires. Excursion to the Pampas.

Today, head into the heart of the pampas (grasslands) and immerse yourself in the atmosphere of rural, country life at a working ARGENTINE ESTANCIA (ranch). After a traditional welcome with empanadas and local beverages, get acquainted with the lifestyle of real gauchos (cowboys) on a horse ride or carriage ride through the pampas. Later, at lunch, enjoy a colourful feast, complete with world-renowned Argentine beef, salad, desserts, local wine, and live music and dance by the gauchos themselves. Top off the day with a horsemanship show by the gauchos before saying adios to the countryside and heading back to the city. (B,L)
