Journey to Rio

12 Day Tour from Argentina to Brazil  |  4 Departures |  Max Group Size: 16  |  Price £2,699 per person

This popular tour is the perfect introduction to Latin America! From the capital of tango to the city of samba with a stop on the way to one of the continent’s most astounding national parks: Iguazu Falls.

Buenos Aires will be sure to seduce you with its stunning architecture, rich culture and world-class gastronomy, although Rio de Janeiro will fight equally hard to steal your heart with its stunning scenery, world-famous (and quite rightly so!) beaches and friendly locals enjoying a vibrancy of life that is impossible not to get swept up in. And between these two incredible cities, you will witness the sheer majesty of Iguazu Falls. Listening to the roar of the water as it plunges down from the famous Garganta del Diablo whilst you soak in this truly spectacular sight is an experience nothing short of utterly awe-inspiring.

This isn't a trip you'll be forgetting any time soon, we assure you. And of course, if you want to stay a little longer, why not take advantage of our finishing point and add a few days on a Brazilian beach to the end of your trip!
