Overview

Book
Save $570 on this trip
Dense rainforests, the towering peaks of the Andes, the seemingly endless and reflective salt flats — when we say the range of scenery on this 25-day tour is dizzying we’re not embellishing. Begin in Rio de Janeiro and head west where Iguassu Falls and an array of active activities you can do on your own during free time. Discover the wildlife of the Pantanal wetlands and climb aboard some local buses to see how to get from point A to B South American style. It’s not just where you stop that matters, it’s how many life-changing moments you’ll have along the way.

Highlights

    • Explore the favela with a local resident
    • Stand in awe of Iguassu Falls
    • Search for wildlife in the Brazilian Pantanal
    • Encounter colonial cities and historic cultures in Bolivia

It was the greatest holiday I've ever had! We visited lots of beautiful places (such as Iguacu, Pantanal and Ihla Grande as my favourites), we had a great and funny tour leader and we stayed in really nice hotels.

I really enjoyed the trip from Bolivia to Brazil. I was pleasantly surprised by how much there was to see in Bolivia, particularly the trip onto the salt flats, and I enjoyed the limited number of tourists there as compared to Peru in the first half of the trip. Overall I had a great time.

It was an unforgettable experience, the most amazing trip I ever had. The biggest surprise was Bolivia with all its hidden natural beauty. The thing which made the whole trip very relaxing was that everything went well as it was planned - thanks to the hard work of our tourguide (and a bit to our luck). Gart did a terrific job, he was always there when we needed anything and made sure everybody was having a good time. He organized various group activities (e.g. games, dinners) in the evening which was definitely outside of his duties. - Agnes S Canadian

A fantastic tour - saw so many amazing places. The highlights for me were the Pantanel in Brazil and the Salt Flats in Bolivia. Bolivia is a country with so many beautiful landscapes. A place you would never think to go.
