Foreign Travel Advice

There are two main features on this trip: the astounding Iguazú Falls on the Argentine-Brazilian border, with its chain of 275 waterfalls nearly 3km long and up to 82m high, and at which Eleanor Roosevelt is reported to have said "Poor Niagara!" when she visited; and Brazil's Southern Pantanal, which harbours the highest concentration of wildlife in South America. Here you can see giant river otters, jaguars, caiman, parrots, toucans, howler monkeys, and plenty more.

Throw in a 2-night stay in a traditional Uruguayan estancia where we'll learn about the gaucho way of living, learning how to prepare typical local food, and you have the makings of a great outdoors adventure.

Then we have two of South America's most iconic cities in Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro, as well as the Uruguayan capital Montevideo and Brazil's eco-tourism and adventure capital Bonito.
