Sample the unique cultures of South America on this thrilling holiday, and experience an once-in-a-lifetime tour filled with spectacular scenery, sensuous dances and music, vibrant cities, fascinating history, and plenty of time to eat in local restaurants, shop for native wares, and sip local drinks.
South America offers some spectacular scenery, including Iguassu Falls, located on the border of Brazil and Argentina. Experience the thunderous roar, torrential downpour, and brilliant rainbows. Everywhere you look, there is water pouring down! You also will stay at the famous Belmond Hotel Das Cataratas just steps away from the falls inside Iguassu National Park! Or how about Bariloche, where you’ll take a chairlift ride to a lookout point at Cerro Campanario, rated one of the top 10 viewing spots by National Geographic. Experience breathtaking panoramic views as you breathe fresh mountain air. Of course, no trip to South America is complete without a visit to the Amazon Jungle. Take a jungle walk and discover the lush vegetation and native species that call the Amazon home. And don’t forget about Machu Picchu, one of the most amazing sights in South America, if not the world. Hear about the history of the site and see the spectacular ruins of this “lost city.”
In addition to beautiful scenery, you’ll also experience the vibrant cities—Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Santiago, and Lima—and enjoy a guided sightseeing tour in each city. A highlight of any trip to Rio is the Christ the Redeemer statue, the 98-foot statue of Jesus that was elected a New Seven Wonders of the World. In Buenos Aires, stroll the streets of this friendly town and experience a Tango show—a passionate, sizzling dance. You’ll even get a chance to dance the Tango at your lesson! In Santiago, taste Chilean wine in Chile’s wine country. In Lima, your sightseeing tour focuses on the city’s colonial heritage.
From the lakes and mountains to the towns and cities, this vacation through South America is like no other!
