Wonders of Rio, Iguassu & Buenos Aires

Duration

Prices From:
US$ 1,568

The journey between Rio and Buenos Aires via Iguassu Falls never goes out of style. Blending beaches, cosmopolitan cities and natural wonders, this is one of the ‘must-do’ South America tours.


This 9-day trip between two South American icons goes via Iguassu Falls, one of the most impressive natural sights on this dynamic continent.

You’ll start in Rio de Janeiro, one of the world’s most evocative cities. Start with its most recognisable symbol, Christ the Redeemer. A cog railway takes you to the summit of Corcovado, where you can enjoy great views over Rio. Then descend to discover the city in detail on a city tour. See the Sambodrome, the pyramid-shaped Metropolitan Cathedral, Cinelandia Square, the National Library and National Museum, finally disembarking at Sugar Loaf. Here, two cable cars will take you to the top of the famous peak, rewarding you with views over Guanabara Bay, and Corcovado.

Rio, of course, is a huge city with lots to explore. Or just laze on one of the world’s most famous beaches, Copacabana or Ipanema. For a uniquely local experience, consider a favela tour, exploring some of Rio’s poorest, yet most vibrant communities.

Fly to Iguassu Falls, where up to 450,000 cubic feet of water cascades over the edge every second during the rainy season. Eleanor Roosevelt’s reaction, ‘Poor Niagara!’ is now legendary, but you’ll be able to form your own opinion, exploring the Brazilian side of the Falls on day one, with the option of a helicopter ride to enjoy them from above. On your second day here, cross the border into Argentina, where you’ll experience the natural beauty of the Falls along the Green Trail. It ends with the ultimate Iguassu view, the Devil’s Throat, where several branches of the river converge on a 230 foot drop.

Fly to your last stop, Buenos Aires. Often dubbed ‘the Paris of the South,’ this is one of South America’s most romantic cities. Take a city tour past the National Congress, Plaza de Mayo, and the Cabildo. Pay your respects to the spirit of Eva Peron at Casa Rosada, then explore the colourful La Boca district before roaming Palermo Park, home to the City Zoo and Planetarium, and elegant Recoleta.

Speaking of elegance, no visit to Buenos Aires would be complete without an evening of Tango. Though the famous dance’s origins are unclear, there is no denying its contribution to Argentinian culture, or the country’s contribution to its enduring popularity. Take in the spectacle over dinner, before enjoying a full day exploring the city at your leisure.
