Get your South American rush with other young travellers unafraid to embrace the new.

Marvel at Iguassu Falls, then hop on a flight to São Paulo on your way to the Brazilian coast — no gruelling bus ride means more time on the beach. We'll wrap up in the party in Rio, where you're free to embrace the carnival atmosphere from our centrally-located Copacabana hostel.

It was good. But in hindsight I should probably have choose a shorter tour. I have come to realize that tours like this is not way I prefer to travel. But if you do this is a good trip.

The tour was amazing. Really loved Iguassu Falls and Ihla Grande - just a shame we didn't see some more sunshine there!
