Itinerary

Today you’ll depart on your scheduled flight to Santiago, via Paris.

The city of Santiago lies in a lovely setting beneath the majestic Andes. On an included city tour this afternoon, you’ll see the Presidential Palace and the beautiful residential districts of Las Condes and Providencia. Finishing on San Cristobal Hill, you’ll enjoy a spectacular view of the foothills of the snow-capped Andes.

Today you’ll be free to explore the city further, or you can join our pre-bookable optional excursion. You’ll take a scenic journey to a wine-tasting at the Indomita vineyard, where award-winning wines including pinot noir and sauvignon blanc are produced. You’ll travel on to Viña del Mar, the ‘Garden City’, for a tour and then head to the coastal city of Valparaíso for lunch. After seeing more of Valparaíso, you’ll continue to La Sebastian and see highlights such as Fisherman’s Wharf, Plaza Sotomayor, and the Naval Academy.

Travel by coach to the border with Argentina, a journey over the Andes offering views of Mount Aconcagua. At 23,000ft, this is the highest peak in the Americas. After crossing into Argentina you’ll continue to Mendoza, for a two-night stay.

Mendoza lies at the foot of the Andes, and is Argentina’s wine capital, producing more than 60% of the country’s wines. Enjoy an included tour this morning. In the afternoon you’ll have the option to visit one of the area’s many vineyards, where you can enjoy a tasting.

After transferring to the airport, you’ll fly to Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina. On arrival, you will be transferred to your hotel for a three-night stay. This afternoon we include a city tour of Buenos Aires, dubbed the ‘Paris of the Americas.’ Highlights include visits to Plaza de Mayo, where the Casa Rosada (Government House) is situated. Also in the square is the Cathedral of Buenos Aires where the tomb of General San Martin, the hero and liberator of Argentina, is located. You will also visit the La Boca District, renowned for its brightly painted houses, and now an artists’ colony. A visit will be made to the Recoleta cemetery, famous for its beautiful family tombs and as the burial place of Eva Peron.

Today you can take an optional full-day tour to the heart of Argentina’s Pampas, to experience a typical ‘estancia’ (ranch). You will see the gauchos displaying their superb horsemanship skills, and enjoy a typical Argentine barbecue.

Today is free for you to spend as you wish. Alternatively, why not join our optional morning excursion on the Tigre and Parana Delta – a labyrinth of magnificent waterways fed by the Parana River. Explore this maze of riverside villas, islands, Victorian docks and pretty, English-style gardens from the comfort of a traditional riverboat. This evening you can enjoy an optional dinner and tango show.

You’ll transfer to the airport for your flight to Iguaçú Falls. On arrival, transfer to your hotel on the Argentinian side for a two-night stay. This afternoon, there will be time to relax at 
your hotel.

Today, we include a full-day excursion into the Iguaçú National Park, taking the small train that leads through the jungle to the Argentinian falls. Situated at the meeting point of three countries (Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina), the falls are one of the world’s largest natural wonders. Higher than Niagara, wider than Victoria, Iguaçú consists of 275 separate falls.

Enjoy a free morning before your flight to Rio. Alternatively, join an optional pre-bookable excursion to the Brazilian side of the Falls. From this side, it is possible to see the full panorama of the falls and also to walk across the famous platform virtually into the Devils Throat, the most famous of the individual falls. Early this afternoon, you’ll transfer to the airport 
for your flight to Rio de Janeiro, where you’ll stay for two nights.

Brazil, the world’s fifth largest country, is a land of warm sun, bright colours, irresistible rhythms, unsurpassed natural beauty and captivating contrasts, and the city of Rio de Janeiro is unique – simply bursting with energy, excitement and entertainment. It is beautifully situated beneath Sugar Loaf Mountain, and blessed with magnificent, world-famous beaches such as Copacabana and Ipanema.


To introduce you to Rio, you’ll take an included visit to Corcovado, home to the famous statue of Christ. To reach the statue it is necessary to ascend in a small cog railway which winds up the mountain for superb views over Rio and Sugar Loaf Mountain.


The afternoon is free for you to explore Rio further, or you can join our pre-bookable optional excursion to the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain via cable car.

There is time to explore Rio further before you transfer to the airport for your flight to the UK, 
via Paris.

Today you’ll arrive back in the UK.
