Fly to Argentina's flamboyant capital city, Buenos Aires. The Paris of Latin America, Buenos Aires is a romantic and lively city. The culture is extremely diverse and the asado (barbecue) restaurants are second to none. The rest of the day is to spend at leisure.
After breakfast, enjoy the irresistible combination of Latin flair and European elegance in a Buenos Aires city tour. Visit the vibrant districts of La Boca, San Telmo, Puerto Madero, Palermo and Recoleta. This evening participate in a quintessential Argentinian tango class before sitting down for dinner and a sultry tango show.
Enjoy a day trip to Uruguay, visiting the picture-perfect colonial town of Colonia. The beautiful Barrio Historico, which occupies a small peninsula that juts out into the river, is a maze of old cobbled streets that are a delight to wander. Admire the main square, see the ruins of San Francisco Church and visit the lighthouse amongst much more.
Travel approximately 1 hour 30 minutes by road to just outside the city. Spend the day on the vast, fertile grasslands known as the pampas, on a traditional estancia (ranch). Here you’ll get some insight into the life of the folk heroes, the gaucho, and after a typical Argentinian asado lunch, there will be a fun folklore show.
Say farewell to Buenos Aires to board your plane over to Puerto Iguazu, the town closest to the incredible wonder that is Iguazu Falls. The falls spans the border of Argentina and Brazil and features hundreds of rushing cascades, set in a lush rainforest scene.
Today you will experience the Argentinian side of Iguazu Falls, with a highlight being the Ecological Jungle Train to the Garganta del Diablo observation point. Here you will have wonderful views of the falls. In the afternoon you will visit the indigenous community of the Mbororé Aldea where you will learn about this ancient tribe's way of life.
Wander along the boardwalks and pathways of the Brazilian side of the falls this morning, followed by your flight to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil's ‘Cidade Maravilhosa'. Perhaps head to the world-famous Copacabana or Ipanema beaches for sunset.
Climb onboard a jeep to venture to some of Rio's many wonders! Visit Corcovado, on the peak of which Christ the Redeemer watches over the city, and the lush vegetation of the Tijuca Forest. Next explore the 19th-century hillside neighborhood of Santa Teresa, where you’ll also have lunch in a traditional restaurant for a delicious Brazilian BBQ. In the afternoon, you’ll tour the city through downtown Rio, before ascending up to the peak of the Sugarloaf Mountain, at 395 metres high.
Enjoy the morning at leisure. Lunch will be followed by the magnificent Rio Carnival, the world’s largest carnival. You will enjoy a fantastic view of the parade and festivities from your seats in sector 9 of the Grandstand. Watch performers in creative costumes from competing Samba schools, blocos (colourful moving floats playing music) and dancers vying for the sough-after title of Carnival Queen.
Transfer about 1 hour to the airport according to your international flight time and fly to the UK, arriving home the following day.
