Days 1-2 Buenos Aires

Start this South American family adventure in one of the world's truly great cities. Elegant and eclectic by turns, Buenos Aires never fails to turn heads and steal hearts. Hit the quirky street stalls of San Telmo, visit Recoleta's splendid museums and famous cemetery, or catch a rowdy Boca Juniors football match.
ACCOM: Hotel - 2

Days 3-4 Iguazu Falls

Return to Buenos Aires for a flight to the magnificent Iguazu Falls. Wider than Victoria Falls and higher than Niagara, they're a stupendous sight to behold. Take in the different perspectives from the various viewing platforms, or for the ultimate vantage point, splash out on a helicopter ride over the top.

Days 5-7 Ilha Grande

Enter Brazil and transfer to the tropical island haven of Ilha Grande. Explore the lush jungle trails leading out from the town centre, snorkel the peaceful waters offshore or hunt for buried treasure - it was once a pirate hideaway after all.
ACCOM: Guesthouse - 3

Days 8-9 Rio de Janeiro

Welcome to Rio, a city that combines wild beauty with a passion for life lived to the fullest. Enjoy a guided tour through the city's iconic sights, including the famous beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana, and keep a look out for the towering figure of Christ the Redeemer on top of Corcovado Mountain. Get a taste of the city’s carnival atmosphere on a visit to a workshop dedicated to the region’s fabulous floats and crazy costumes. Finally, no trip to Rio is complete without a cable car ride to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain; the breathtaking panoramic views over the city are the perfect end to this endearing family adventure.
