Explore the beauty of South America during this exhilarating holiday to Brazil, Argentina, and Peru. Visit its cosmopolitan and lively cities as well as its ancient treasures and scenic highlights. A vacation highlight is the Amazon Jungle. Cruise along the chocolate-colored Rio Negro to its confluence with the yellow-gray Rio Solimões, where the two rivers forming the Amazon meet. Watch for the captivating native flora and fauna. More spectacular scenery awaits at Iguassu Falls, where you will marvel at the stunning panoramic views of many of the 275 cataracts that make up Iguassu Falls—with its clouds of spray, incessant roar, and surrounding tropical growth. And, as a special treat, stay inside Iguassu National Park just steps away from the falls at the famous Belmond Hotel Das Cataratas!
And that’s just the start! Discover the fascinating cities—Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, and Lima. You’ll have guided sightseeing with a local expert and leisure time in each city to browse the shops, sip the local drinks, sample the local cuisine, and explore the many sights. There’s also Machu Picchu. About 1,000 people once lived there—in around 200 structures—but archaeologists still don’t know its true purpose. Your first glimpse of this city poised high above the jungle-covered ravines is one of the most majestic images in South America.
From the vibrant cities to the ancient structures, this holiday to South America has it all! So, grab your camera and be prepared for a trip of a lifetime.
