About the Holiday
Day 1-2: Buenos Aires
Upon arrival at Buenos Aires airport you'll be met transferred to our hotel. Spend the rest of the day at leisure before the Welcome Meeting this evening.
Day 2 is free to explore the beautiful city of Buenos Aires, known as the "Paris of South America" due to its lovely green parks, plazas and wide boulevards. Argentina’s capital city is a great destination for culture lovers, with the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes boasting an impressive collection including original works by Monet, Renoir and Cézanne. You can also learn about the national heroine ‘Evita’ at the Museo Eva Perón and opt to watch a Tango Show in the evening.
Overnight: Buenos Aires| Breakfast x 1
Days 3-4: Iguazu Falls
Buenos Aires - Foz do Iguacu. We fly over fertile farmlands to the Brazilian town of Foz do Iguaçu, our base for visiting the famous Iguazú Falls - the most magnificent waterfalls in the world. Unlike most other waterfalls that have just one or two cataracts, at Iguazú Falls there are 275 cataracts in a magnificent 3km long U shape that we will visit from both the Brazil and Argentinean sides.
Visiting the Argentine side of the falls you can board a speed boat which will take you under the falls soaking you from head to toe, an optional adventure you'll never forget! On the Argentine side you'll also find the famous "Devil's Throat" where fourteen falls drop with such force that there is always a massive cloud of spray overhead.
Visiting the Brazilian side of the falls will give you a completely different perspective from the Argentine side. On the Brazilian side you can see the falls by walking through the rainforest and along catwalks above and below the rushing water. You can also visit the world's largest hydroelectric dam at Itaipu (optional) where you can learn more about the ecological issues faced during the dam's construction. There is also a very interesting bird park nearby, perfect for that must-have photo with a toucan!
Overnight: Foz do Iguacu | Breakfast x 1
Day 5: Rio de Janeiro
Foz do Iguacu - Rio. Today we travel on to Rio de Janeiro, our final destination. Rio has many things to see and do and the rest of the day is free to spend at leisure. A highlight for many would be to experience the majestic gaze of Christ the Redeemer at the top of Corcovado, the breath-taking panoramic views from the top of Sugarloaf Mountain, and the vibrant coloured tiles of the Selarón staircase. You can walk from the top of the staircase up to the quiet hill-top neighbourhood of Santa Teresa, with many quaint cafés and shops lining the cobblestone streets.
In the city centre, you can stroll around Rio's old colonial buildings and wander around the skyscrapers of the financial district. Alternatively, you may like to visit the Botanical Gardens, one of the world-famous beaches of Copacabana or Ipanema, or the beautiful Rodrigues de Freitas Lagoon. In the evening, why not enjoy a samba show and get a true insight into what makes Carnival so special.

Buenos Aires is the capital and largest city of Argentina. It is located on the southern shore of the Rio de la Plata.
Argentina spans a massive 2,263 miles (3,650km) from north to south, giving the narrow country a huge variety of landscapes and attractions ranging from the desert cattle ranges of the Pampas in the north to the glaciers and penguin colonies of Tierra del Fuego in the south.
In between those extremes lies the sultry heart of Argentina, Buenos Aires. The birthplace of the tango, Buenos Aires is a fascinating city of history and culture and is overflowing with amazing restaurants, theatres, nightclubs and dance halls. Two hundred and thirty miles (400km) south of Buenos Aires lies Argentina's most popular beach resort, Mar del Plata, which attracts around three million local tourists every summer.
Many of Argentina's most popular attractions are not in the cities however, but spread across its verdant landscape. The famous Iguazú Falls, voted one of the natural wonders of the world in 2011, draw tourists from all over the globe, as do the excellent vineyards of the wine region in Mendoza, and the popular ski resorts Bariloche and Las Lenas
Argentina is a patchwork made up of colourful panoramas and even more colourful people. A hugely popular tourist destination in South America, a holiday in Argentina is an adventure likely never to be forgotten.
