What's included in this trip
South American Explorer SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Experience life on a working estancia in the heart of Uruguay's farming country. Things are simple down on the ranch but you're guaranteed a warm Uruguayan welcome from our hosts.
Foz do Iguazu is a largish city famed for being at the doorstep - along with Argentina and Paraguay - of the incredible Iguazu Falls.
Step back in time in gorgeous Paraty, where Portuguese colonial buildings, cobblestone streets and horse and cart are set against a verdant backdrop of misty hills.
Relax among the spoils of paradise on Ilha Grande, a gorgeous tropical island that has little development, no cars and pristine rainforest and beaches.
Bigger than life and beautiful to boot, Rio de Janeiro sits resplendent among mountains, rainforest and sea, and emits an energy that is irresistible to everyone who visits.
