Destinations
BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA; RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL; IGUAZÚ FALLS (BRAZIL AND ARGENTINA SIDES)

Offering an outstanding introduction to Argentina and Brazil, this journey combines the elegance of Buenos Aires with exotic and flamboyant Rio de Janeiro and awe-inspiring Iguazú Falls, shrouded in mist with its thunders heard for kilometers. This is a trip that combines the best of two very distinct fascinating cultures – one vibrant, musical and intense in both nature and settings, and another much more European with some of the most dramatically beautiful scenery on the planet. We suggest this combination for travelers looking to combine two dramatically different countries that complement one another.
