The Experiences – From cultural treasures to jaw-dropping nature

Blessed with golden beaches, lush mountains and spectacular views, the sun and fun of Brazil, Rio de Janeiro will give you a warm welcome to South America. Discover this lively city at your leisure: walk the powdery-white sands of Ipanema and Copacabana, travel by cable car to Sugarloaf Mountain, then scale Corcovado and take in the city’s panorama at the base of Christ the Redeemer – one of the seven wonders of the world.

Visit the awe-inspiring, UNESCO World Heritage-Listed Iguazu Falls, witnessing this natural marvel from both Brazilian and Argentinian sides. Get close to the torrential waters while wandering along the catwalk, take in spectacular vistas during a cable car ride to the top of the falls, then spend time exploring the Iguazu Falls National Park where toucans, tapirs, jaguars and more can be found – if you look hard enough.

Admire the elegant architecture of Buenos Aires, often referred to as the “Paris of South America” for its European flair. Take a guided tour of the city’s highlights, including Plaza de Mayo, Metropolitan Cathedral, Casa Rosa, the exciting La Boca neighbourhood and more. Pay a visit to Recoleta Cemetery where the much-loved Eva “Evita” Peron lies. Fresh flowers and cards are regularly laid in tribute to the famous First Lady of Argentina.

Fly to Lima, Peru, where you will uncover the 2,000 years of history, UNESCO-listed sites and pre-Columbian masterpieces hidden in this city with an exclusive guided tour.

Head deep into the Peruvian Andes, visiting some of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed sights native to this region. Start off at exciting Cuzco, known as the oldest continually habited city in the world. Continue to the ancient citadel of Machu Picchu – the “Lost City of the Incas” – a high altitude temple citadel regarded as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

Lastly, head to tranquil Lake Titicaca for an enchanting visit to the Floating Uros Islands, a man-made construct created by the indigenous peoples of the area. Set foot on the islands and meet the locals as you learn more about these floating marvels, made completely from reeds woven by the native Uros who have practiced this technique for centuries.
