What's included in this trip
Argentina & Brazil Explorer SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Cosmopolitan, cultured and chic, Buenos Aires has European sensibilities with a fiery Latin heart. Discover colonial architecture, funky neighbourhoods, exceptional cuisine and a thriving nightlife.
These wetlands cover an area the size of Belgium, so there’s plenty to explore. Roam the marshes, lagoons and grasslands, and keep an eye out for a rich array of wildlife: howler monkeys, otters, alligators, marsh deer, wolves and hundreds of species of birds all call the wetlands home.
Taller than Niagara Falls and twice as wide, the sheer presence of the Iguazu Falls will blow your mind. It’s no wonder these mammoth falls are on the Unesco World Heritage list. Walk the foot trails of the national reserve and watch as rushes of water cascade over cliffs and mist rises through the rainforests. Both the Argentinean and Brazilian sides of the falls offer brilliant views.
A local bus takes you to Rio de Janeiro, the festive heart of Brazil. Soak up the beauty of Guanabara Bay and its white-sand shores from the top of Corcovado. Check out the famous Copacabana and Ipanema beaches for a lively dose of the local scene, then head out on the town and lose yourself in the music-infused night-life. Samba, jazz, reggae, bossa nova – take your pick.
