10 Days Argentina & Brazil Adventure

10 Days Argentina & Brazil Adventure

Get a glimpse of two iconic cities as well as the spectacular wilderness of South America. Experience the Latin passion of Argentina, the lush wetlands of Iberá, and the magnificent Iguassu Falls before strolling the sands of Copacabana Beach.        

Flit your way in and out through the architectural splendour, stylish bars and eye catching tango performances of Argentina’s metropolis. Then get blown away in equal measure at the natural wonders invested in the Ibera Wetlands. Transition over to Brazil, contemplating at first the easy pace at the Foz do Iguazu and step right on the gas as you plant your finger on the pulse of its most famous city- Rio, where the rhythms of life react spontaneously to its constant change of beat. Throw in soccer matches, carnivals, iconic sights and food that’ll make you clean your plate. Group travel in this quarter of Latin America was never this ideal for people in their 30’s and 40’s.

Day 01 Buenos Aires

Hello and welcome to Buenos Aires! Our representative will be at hand at the airport to assist you on your way to the hotel. A 6pm appointment with your tour leader is on the cards this evening. Until then, just hang out at the hotel or go for a walk to get a feel of the neighbourhood.

Day 02 Buenos Aires

Start your morning by spreading yourself large among the sites of the capital city, stepping first into the particularly unusual but beautiful final resting place of the mostly rich and famous – the Recoleta Cemetery. Wander through this veritable miniature city of memorials, immortalized not just in the intricate sculptures, the ornate Neo Gothic, art deco and baroque structures but also the human tales of those that reside forever in this extravagant patch of Buenos Aires. Pull yourself away from these grounds and then step into the awe inspiring Colon Theatre, widely perceived to be one of the best opera houses in the world. Take a guided tour to understand the nuances of the theatre, its architecture, the personalities that graced the stage and the famed acoustics of its main hall. Disband in the late afternoon where you’re free to do your own thing but you might want to catch up later to witness Argentina’s greatest export after Maradonna and Messi – the Tango!

Day 03 Carlos Pelegrini

You’ll be taking a flight this morning from the capital city of Argentina to Posadas, the gateway to the Ibera Wetlands. Another 4 hour ride from the airport will get you to the hotel where you can juggle some rest, some relaxation and lunch before you go out on a lazy amble through the little town of Carlos Pelegrini – this, just to stretch your legs.

Day 04 Carlos Pelegrini

Draw the curtains up for an exciting day this morning as you ripple the fresh waters of the Ibera Wetlands that wash through floating islands and shallow lagoons fed by a system of lakes. Come face to face with capybaras, cayman, swamp deer and giant otters on land and water while lifting your head occasionally to the trees and sky to witness the howler monkeys and equally diverse bird life flecking the landscape with vivid colours.

...

Day 05 Foz Do Iguazu

The journey entails approximately 6 hours of travel time before the border crossing formalities are conducted and you get to your accommodation. Upon arrival at your hotel you’re free to do as you please. Stretch your legs, if that’s what you’re up for, by taking a walk around town or hire a taxi and then go climbing up the Hito tres Fronteras to gaze upon the confluence of Iguazu and Parana rivers that also marks the triple borders between Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay.

Day 06 Foz Do Iguazu

Make this a truly inspiring day as you explore the Iguazu Falls on the Brazilian side. Trace your way along the many walkways that gradually unveil the depth and extent of this natural wonder, walking on water (or the closest thing to it) at the Salto Santo Maria or staring slacked jawed as the waters tumble downward with relentless force, some from a height of approximately 82 metres! Yet as much as the spectacle centres around its height- its width spanning about 2700 metres is as spectacular, revealing a 360 degrees view of its ethereal magnitude. If you can’t get enough of the falls, hop on board a helicopter later in the afternoon to get more out of this wonderful landscape. 

Day 07 Foz Do Iguazu

If the Brazilian side of the Iguazu Falls is the glossy cover of a paperback, the Argentine side is the words and sentences, the details that make for robust reading. Where Brazil presents the panorama, Argentina provides the intimacy, the reality of being as close to the Falls as possible. Punctuated by as many as 275 drops and various paths leading to them there’s definitely a lot to see here so make the best of yet another opportunity to discover this expanse ultimately getting to its heart – La Garganta del Diablo or Devil’s Throat – featuring a drop of 82 metres. A free afternoon is on the cards after your visit here but if you’d like to get an alternative experience, get on board a boat and explore the falls some more.

Day 08 Rio De Janeiro

Jump right into the midst of Brazil’s most vibrant city as you fly to Rio De Janeiro this morning. Once you’ve settled in at your hotel and got everything in order, discover the streets and sights of Rio as you get your bearings via an orientation walk around the area. You’ve got a free afternoon but there are loads of things to do here – beaches for the sun worshipers, football stadiums for the sports fan, museums and great venues for people watching. Do take your tour leaders advice however, about what you can do in this great city because you’ll be hitting the major sights tomorrow.

Day 09 Rio De Janeiro

Hit some of the major attractions of Rio this morning to cap off the last day of your tour. Start by visiting the Tijuca National Park that houses among many attractions the iconic statue of Corcovado or Christ the Redeemer reaching its arms out in eternal munificence towards the city and the Guanabara Bay below. Follow this up by witnessing the soccer mad country in action at the Maracana Stadium and make some noise with the local fans as they sing and dance throughout the performance. Make your way then to the Metropolitan Cathedral of St. Sebastian to contemplate its magnificent exterior and marvel at its interiors as the sunlight hits its four stained glasses, rising 64 metres high, splashing the scene with vivid colours. Chase this down with a soft hike to Morro da Urca from where you can gaze at Rio’s dominant landmark, the Sugarloaf Mountain. If you still have the time, the energy and the will perhaps you can even entertain thoughts of accessing this mountain by cable car. Whatever you do, close out your tour with a bang in the evening by getting together with your tour companions for an optional farewell dinner.

Day 10 Rio De Janeiro

Today your Argentina to Brazil adventure comes to an end. It’s time to say goodbye to all of your fellow travellers and group leader. There are no activities planned for the final day so you’re able to depart the accommodation at any time before 12 am. If you wish to stay on in Rio please advise at the time of booking and we can arrange additional accommodation Departure transfers are include today.
