Travel from the bright lights of Buenos Aires to Rio


Highlights

  • Tango the night away in Buenos Aires
  • Travel to the mighty Iguazu Falls
  • Walk along quaint cobblestone streets in playful Paraty
  • Visit Ilha Grande Bay and relax in the cool waters

Itinerary

Admire Buenos Aires' classic architecture, discover its famous landmarks and be presented with mouth-watering menu options at every culinary turn. Meat lovers will go wild over the world-renowned Argentinean steaks, while those with a sweet tooth will delight in caramel cookie-like treats called alfajores. Whether it's staying up late to dance the tango in a musical milonga or shopping up a storm in elegant boutiques, Buenos Aires is one capital city that leaves travellers spoilt for choice.
Discover the jaw-dropping magnitude of Iguazu Falls, where tropical flowers, colourful butterflies and misty rainbows all add to the magic of this spectacular destination. The mighty roar of the falls is deafening - prepare yourself for nature at its most powerful! Admire the falls from either the Brazilian or the Argentinian side or, for those wanting a different perspective, zip out on a zodiac at the base to witness the pounding deluge from but a few feet away.
There is plenty to see and do in flamboyant, rambunctious Rio de Janeiro. Visit Christ the Redeemer atop Corcovado and admire amazing panoramas of the city, or head to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain by cable car. For some seriously eye-popping sights, head down to the white sand beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. And what trip to Rio would be complete without a samba boogie? Yes, the only way to truly experience this city is to try to keep up with it.
