Your Holiday Itinerary - The Highlights of South America

Day 1: Buenos Aires, Argentina

Your tour starts in Buenos Aires with an Argentine dinner and a stunning tango performance.

Day 2: Buenos Aires

Start your day with a panoramic tour of lively Buenos Aires visiting the main sites before exploring San Telmo, the oldest neighbourhood of the city and the birthplace of Tango. Then, the choice is yours. Choose to continue your city tour by bus or for the more adventurous, embark on a bicycle tour with a local guide. Either way you’ll visit La Boca and the Puerto Madero neighbourhoods. The rest of your day is at leisure.

Day 3: Buenos Aires

This morning, cross the Argentine Pampas to experience Argentina’s version of the “wild west” and embark on a guided tour of the charming country village of San Antonio de Areco. Visit some of the local artisans and silversmiths before heading to a typical estancia where you’ll dine on a hearty asado lunch – a traditional Argentine barbecue. While on the ranch, you can choose to go horseback riding through the countryside or take a scenic horse drawn carriage ride. Relax on the estancia grounds before heading back to Buenos Aires for a free evening.

Day 4: Buenos Aires - Iguazu Falls, Brazil

Fly to Iguazu Falls – located at the crossroads of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay – hailed as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.  you’ll board the Rainforest Ecological Train inside the national park on the Argentine side and walk to the platform overlooking the powerful  Devil’s Throat. Discover unparalleled views of five waterfalls as they plummet into the Iguazu River. Then cross into the Brazil side and check into your resort. End your day with a relaxing dinner.

Day 5: Iguazu Falls

Soak up the breathtaking views of the waterfalls from the Brazilian side. Join your local guide as you discover how Brazil and Argentina have  both fought to protect the beauty and raw power of the falls by making each side a national park. This afternoon you can choose an optional jungle boat ride at the base of the falls, or enjoy the amenities at your resort.

Day 6: Iguazu Falls - Rio de Janeiro

Fly to Rio de Janeiro and venture to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain. Check into your beachfront hotel in the exclusive Leblon neighbourhood. Learn how to craft caipirinhas, a famous Brazil cocktail, and then cap the night off at Rio Scenarium, a lavishly decorated restaurant and music venue in the historic Lapa district.

Day 7: Rio de Janeiro

Today you’ll travel to Corcovado by train to see Christ the Redeemer, one of the largest Art Deco statues in the world. Take in the panoramic vistas of Tijuca Forest National Park, then head to one of the city’s open markets. Break into small groups with local market guides as you discover and taste different types of exotic fruits from Brazil. Your afternoon is at leisure. Relax by the beach at your resort or take a shuttle to
Copacabana. Or, perhaps take an optional jeep ride through the Tijuca forest followed by a visit to historic Santa Teresa.

Day 8: Rio de Janeiro

This morning, you can choose to take a behind the scenes look at Carnival or join a local guide for a tour of a favela to learn about the unique contrasts and paradoxes of Brazilian society. This evening, enjoy a panoramic city tour that includes a visit to the Metropolitan Cathedral and the Maracanã football stadium before continuing on to the Carnival parade route, the Sambadrome. To end your day, enjoy your farewell dinner in a typical Brazilian churrascaria.

Day 9: Rio de Janeiro

Your tour ends in Rio de Janeiro. For those with later evening flights, you can choose an optional visit to the famous Botanical Gardens along with a cruise of Guanabara Bay, or perhaps a historic walking tour of the waterfront district.
