This trip involves some long travel days, including an overnight bus. This can be tiresome but offers a real sense of adventure. The buses are well equipped with comfortable reclining seats and on-board toilets. Snacks are provided but we recommend you also bring your own food in case you get hungry.
While at the estancia in Uruguay, you can choose to participate in the day-to day-activities of the farm as much or as little as you like. If you do choose to get involved, prepare for some early morning starts and to get your hands dirty when working directly with animals. The accommodation is multi-share and meals are served family style. Please inform your booking agent if you have any dietary requirements.
This trip starts with an Orientation Walk at 1 pm. If you are unable to find a suitable flight it is possible to book additional nights at the joining accommodation.
A Single Supplement to have your own room is available on this trip however excludes nights 4, 5 & 6 (Estancia stay) and 7 & 10 (Overnight bus) where you will be in shared accommodation.
The Argentine government charges Canadian citizens a reciprocity tax. This tax must be paid online prior to travel and a receipt for this payment must be produced at every border crossing into Argentina.
In 2018 the trip code and itinerary will change. Please see GGBDC on website.
Our Buenos Aires to Rio Unplugged trips score an average of 4.78 out of 5 based on 113 reviews in the last year.
This trip was not physically difficult for over 65 year olds. Provided you are generally mobile. But a flexible outlook is required. Group will be international and the accommodation and transport good but varied.
