A South American odyssey, this action-packed holiday length adventure takes you through the two South American giants, Brazil and Argentina. Starting (or ending) in the buzzing city of Rio de Janeiro, which is set in the most beautiful location of any city on earth, you’ll be exploring the magical islands off Parati, famed as a world-class diving and snorkelling destination, travelling along the Emerald Coast and boating through the wetlands of the Pantanal for 2 days of game viewing. But no South America trip would be complete without a visit to what is for many, the continent’s most stunning attraction: Iguazu Falls – and you’ll be viewing it from both sides of the border. The trip ends wandering the atmospheric streets of the Argentinian capital, Buenos Aires, or alternatively in Rio... don’t forget you can add on Carnival!
