Foreign Travel Advice

There are some amazing highlights on this trip: the astounding Iguazú Falls on the with its chain of 275 waterfalls and Brazil's Southern Pantanal, which harbours the highest concentration of wildlife in South America. Here you can see giant river otters, caiman, parrots, toucans, howler monkeys, and even jaguars.

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.

This trip is timed to take in Rio Carnival, the greatest party on earth. It is like nothing you have witnessed before in the scale, colour and vibrancy. The trip culminates in the chance to glitter up and attend the parade in the Samabadrome where you’ll be situated in Sector 11, close to the action!
