New 4 countries: Carnival Champion Parade 2019

Brazil -Аrgentina-Chile (& Beautiful Patagonia) - Bolivia (Uyuni)

08.03.2019  - 25.03.2019

18 days/17 nights Group Tour 

Rio de Janeiro is Brazil’s “Marvellous City”, and with good reason. The natural beauty of this incredible place almost defies belief, from the deep sapphire water, to the golden sands of Copacabana, to the vast mountain range surrounding it.

But that is not all that awaits you this March. For in the middle of summer there is Rio Canrnival, an incredible celebration of life, colour and community to the soundtrack of samba! Watch as the top samba schools of the city go head to head to be crowned champion of Carnival, showing off their most flamboyant costumes and intricate dance routines

Buenos Aires is a city of stunning beauty. Often called the Paris of Latin America, its Parisian-style boulevards ooze elegance while retaining that familiar Latin flare. First-class food, wine and culture are the order of the day for porteños (Buenos Aires locals).

The jewel in the Bolivian crown is the otherworldly beauty of the Salar de Uyuni Salt Flats! A desolate white landscape seems to stretch on forever, occasionally interrupted by alien rock formations. During the rainy season, the flats become a reflection of the sky above thanks to a thin film of rain on top, providing no shortage of stunning vistas and mind-bending optical illusions. You won’t be able to tell the difference between heaven and Earth!

Patagonia: one of the few parts of the world that remains untouched by human destruction. You can tread the path of the beings that walked through this incredible landscape thousands of years ago, up snow-peaked mountains, through gargantuan valleys, across crystalline glaciers. Glacier Perito-Moreno is like nothing you have seen before, and the sheer scale of it is hard to comprehend. The Torres del Paine National Park offers crystal clear lakes of all different colours, freezing waterfalls, and one of the most jaw-droppingly beautiful mountain ranges on Earth.

Day 1. 08.03 Rio de Janeiro
Take in the breathtaking view as your plane descends upon Rio de Janeiro – the 'Marvellous City' where rolling green hills, turqoise ocean, sandy beaches and high-rise urban development is all packed together in a unique blend of life and humanity. Your driver will take you from the airport to the hotel, during which time you can get a different perspective of the city, passing through the colonial style buildings and along the world-famous beachfront. The natural beauty of Rio is almost transcendental and gives you a taste of the Amazon rainforest while still retaining everything that is so incredible about a Latin American city. A walk along the mosaic tiles of Copacabana reveals much about the life of a 'carioca' (Rio local) – a refreshing caipirinha as the waves lap against the shore, a fiercely competitive game of foot volleyball, and thousands of beachgoers sunning themselves on the white sands. You have truly arrived in paradise.
Day 2. 09.03 Rio de Janeiro Tour to Corcovado Mountain + Crist the Redeemer Statue
After a delicious tropical breakfast in your hotel, you will head out on a trip to see the world-famous Christ the Saviour statue on top of Corcovado Mountain. A specially designed train will take you from the foot of the mountain along a winding road through the magical Tijuca rainforest where you will see some of the enchanting tropical wildlife on constant display in Rio, such as toucans, monkeys and armadillos. At the summit of Corcovado, 700m above sea level, proudly stands the iconic image seen around the world – a 38m high statue of Christ the Saviour. But that is not the only breathtaking thing about this place – when up close to the statue you will be overwhelmed by the stunning panoramic view of the city, so high up it seems as though you are truly fliying with the birds around you. From the far reaches of Guanabara Bay, to the Maracanã Stadium, all along to Sugarloaf Mountain, Copacabana, Ipanema and Gávea Mountain, you can see the whole of Rio de Janeiro. Get ready for the Carnival party! An incredible night of music, dance, colour and joy awaits you. You will be picked up from your hotel and taken to the Sambódromo, Rio’s stadium of samba. The samba schools parade down the avenue showing off their hip-swaying moves and elaborate costumes, along with flotillas often making humourous jokes about Brazilian politics. You may be taken back to the hotel at any time, or not at all! Rio de Janeiro hosts one of the most famous and colorful festivals in the world, which is considered the national cultural heritage of Brazil. Rio de Janeiro hosts one of the most famous and colourful festivals in the world, considered an essential part of Brazilian culture.

From Ipanema beach to Rocinha favela, people from all different backgrounds join toether to enjoy the hot summer sun and the joyous sound of samba. Don’t miss this incredible cultural event!
Day 3. 10.03 Rio de Janeiro Excursion to the Sugar Loaf & City Tour
After breakfast in your hotel you will be taken to the mythical Sugarloaf mountain, protruding abruptly from out of the ground like an alsteriod just fallen from space. A magnificent cable car ride will take you up to Urca Mountain, the stop off between ground level and Sugarloaf. From there you can enjoy a smooth cocktail or sample some of Brazil’s many signature dishes. Once arriving to the top of Sugarloaf mountain you will see the captivating beauty of Rio from a different angle, To your left you can see Copacabana beach stretching off into the distance, and on the horizon the faint outlines of Two Brothers and Gávea mountains. Below you is the quaint and intimate Red Beach, while to your right you can see across Guanabara Bay to Niterói and, closer in, Rio’s Botafogo and central neighbourhoods, with the unmistakeable silhouette of Christ the Saviour casting its eternal gaze over the city. This trip is essential to gain a different perspective on Rio, and to truly understand its beauty. After descending the mountain by cablecar, you will head into the Old Town and Centre, where colonial architecture still remains and many old churches such as the Candelária are still in use. The cobbled streets and bright colours are a stark contrast to the whitewashed, sunsoaked streets of Ipanema but in many ways are part of the authentic, nearly-forgotten Rio of old, and one can almost feel the hustle and bustle of hundreds of years ago when these streets were filled with merchants and citizens of the Portuguese Empire.
Day 4. 11.03 Rio de Janeiro- Foz do Iguaçu
Breakfast in the hotel. Transfer to the airport with a driver only. Flight to Foz do Iguaçu. Arrival and meeting at the airport. Transfer to the hotel with a driver only.
Day 5. 12.03 Foz do Iguaçu
After breakfast your driver will take you to the Brazilian side of the Falls. A tranquil and calming walk along the edge of the falls provides the most spectacular view you have ever seen: over 250 overflowing with millions of gallons of water racing furiously down straight from the Amazon River. The sunlight flashing off the water has the mesmerising effect of creating hundreds of rainbows as far as the eye can see. It is almost hard to believe, such is the breathtaking beauty of the rainforest paradise. After taking in the incredible views, the path takes you to the eye of the storm, the largest waterfall in the park, The Devil’s Throat. Water crashes off an 80m-cliff edge into the Iguazu River, but you have the chance to meet the water via a walkway that leads you into the heart of the waterfall. Feel the power of the water as it surrounds you from all sides, before heading up a stairway to look down from above on the mother of all waterfalls. At the end of the tour, your guide will drop you off at your hotel. Optional: You will have the opportunity for an excursion to the Bird Park in the National Park of Iguazu. There you will see a vibrant spectrum of all manner of birdlife as you walk around the open-air enclosures, paying close attention to the chorus of birdsong above. (Price USD 75 Net P/P.) There will also be the chance for a “Macuko Safari” trip through the jungle. Hop into the back of an open-topped jeep and head out into the wilderness of the Iguazu National Park to witness first-hand the incredible happenings of nature. Your guides will explain to you the variety of flora and fauna on display. Keep an eye out for monkeys overhead! Then jump into a boat and ride right into the falls!(Price USD120 NET P/p)
Day 6.13.03 Foz do Iguaçu
Wake up and have breakfast in your beautiful hotel. Today’s tour will take you through the Argentinian side of the National Park. Often referred to as like being on stage compared to sitting in the audience from the Brazilian side, the Argentinian side allows you to fully interact with the falls as you walk across a spectacular maze of walkways over 3km long across two levels over the rushing water. Combined with the myriad rainbows, you are given the feeling of walking on water as you encounter the many waterfalls on display. It all starts with the Lower Circuit: At a length of 1700m, wooden walkways penetrate the lush jungle to carry you to the edge of the twin beauty of the Salto Dos Hermanas (Two Sisters Falls), then the serene intimacy of Saltos Chico and Ramirez. The next stop on this magical spectacle of water is the gaping yawn of Salto Bosetti, followed by the tall and narrow but furiously powerful Saltos Alvar Nuñez, Elenita and Lanusse, all the while accompanied by the song of tropical birds, the howling of monkeys and the occasional amber flash of a toucan’s beak. The second half of the day takes you to the Upper Circuit: make the quick journey upwards from the Lower Circuit to bring you up to another walkway, this time from an elevated height which allows you to walk right up to the edge of the waterfalls and observe this incredible sight from above via a series of smaller falls, eventually reaching the gargantuan Salto San Martin, which seems to stretch on endlessly. The ominous rumble of the Devil’s Throat can be heard in the distance. The tour culminates in awe-inspiring Devil's Throat, this time seen from the top of the fall. To reach it, you take a scenic train ride through the rainforest, passing by the indigenous coati, armadillo and innumerable bird species. The cascade of flying mist can be seen from afar. It seems almost apocalyptic; however once you arrive at the Devil’s Throat you cannot help but be struck by the beauty as the spray crashes against your face. Water pours in a 150m-long horseshoe shape down an 80m drop, to the very place you were standing in yesterday. The sheer amount of water falling away each second is simply mind-boggling. After checking out of your hotel, your driver will take you to the airport to catch a flight to Buenos Aires. You will be taken to your hotel there to check in and rest for tomorrow’s adventures.
Day 7. 14.03 Buenos Aires
After breakfast in your hotel, head out on a private guided city tour (4 hours). Buenos Aires has a European feel to it, and the grandiose buildings and wide avenues remind one of Paris or Barcelona. But the Argentine capital is very much its own city, and certainly retains that familiar Latin streak. You will see the famous Pink House, a great example of colonial architecture, the majestic Colon Theatre, the iconic Obelisk in the middle of 9th of July Avenue, as well as a trip to Boca (the birthplace of tango). Take a walk around the picturesque Caminito, bursting with bright colours and the air full of sizzling steak aromas. Afterwards you will visit the affluent Recoleta district with its chic bars and restaurants, not forgetting the beautiful Plaza San Martín surrounding by neoclassical architecture. Buenos Aires is famous for being the birthplace of Tango. No doubt, this is the best city in the world for fans of this famous, passionate dance. In the evening, enjoy a first-class dinner and tango show. The best selection of international and local dishes, world-renowned Argentine beef grilled over charcoal, homemade pasta, delicious desserts, a wide selection of Argentine wines from the cellar – this will be the perfect setting to bring the Buenos Aires chapter of your journey to a close.
Day 8. 15.03 Buenos Aires-Santiago de Chile
After breakfast your driver will take you to the airport for your flight to Santiago. Upon arrival in Santiago you will be driven to your hotel.
Day 9. 16.03 Santiago de Chile
Santiago has some of the most eye-catching scenery in Latin America, with the city surrounded on all sides by the Andes Mountains. Huge skyscrapers rise up from the ground, and the city stretches outwards as far as the eye can see. After breakfast in your hotel, take this chance to go on a tour of the historical center, stopping first at the Plaza de Armas, a huge square that transports you back to the colonial days. You can imagine the bustling markets, merchants and soldiers wandering the cobbled stones of what was and remains the central hub of the city. The square is home to several monuments, such as to the founder of Santiago, Pedro de Valdivia, as well as the Royal Palace, the Metropolitan Cathedral of Santiago and the Central Post Office Building. After the excursion you will be transferred back to the hotel. Optional: Winetasting Tour to wineries of the Maipo Valley. Price USD$230 per pax(min.2 people)

After breakfast in your hotel you will be taken to the airport to catch a flight to San Pedro de Atacama. From there you will be taken to Uyuni in Bolivia . After arriving, you will head out in the Jeep across the Salt Flats, the place where the land meets the sky and the horizon melts away into one breathtaking panoramic vista of sand, sky and clouds. This is truly a transcendental experience and one that is quite overwhelming at first sight. Driving across the desert, you will spot shimmering emerald of Laguna Verde, a bright green high-altitude lake coloured by the mineral make-up of the water, lying at the foot of two dormant volcanoes, Licancabur and Juriques. The feeling is akin to being on the moon! Moving on you will enter the Dali valley, dotted with otherworldly stone structures that inspired the surrealist artist. Move onwards to the Aguas Termales de Polques – the Thermal Baths. Due to the low temperatures in the mornings in Uyuni, a steaming hot bath is the perfect way to start your day! You will need to be awake for the next part of your trip, because you’re heading to the Sol de Mañana geysers, where burning hot gas can spit out from the ground at any second, and boiling mud spills onto the surface in this extraterrestrial terrain. Tornadoes spontaneously form by your side, and volcanic eruptions bubble out of the ground as you make your way through this alien planet, wondering how such a small area can have such geographical variation. The next stop is the crimson streak of Laguna Colorada, 4400m above sea level and home to the James flamingo, attracted to this area for its unique species of plankton. Home for the night is the Hotel del Desierto in Ojo de Perdiz, a typical Bolivian lodge situated in the middle of the desert. (Lunch & dinner included)

Onwards to Salar de Chiguana, a smaller salt flat on the way to the larger Uyuni, the largest dried salt lake in the world at an altitude of 3650m. There are 10 billion tons of salt in this region, with the salt forming a 10cm thick layer on the ground. Strange, solitary rock formations can be seen now and then, and you will visit the Isla Incahuasi, the summit of an ancient volcano that has been swallowed by the salt flats. Walk among the spiky cacti and prehistoric rock formations as you gaze out among the vast expanse of desert from your vantage point, followed by a trip to the mining town of Colchani to witness how Earth’s natural resources are harnessed to create everyday table salt, before arriving in the city of Uyuni.

It is famous as the site of the discovery of the Mylodoon Darwinii, a giant sloth-like creature. A to-scale model stands at the entrance to give you an idea of the enormity of the beast. The giant Silla del Diablo (Devil’s Chair) towers close by. After stopping at Castillo Hill, a beautiful villa, you will enter the national park and drive along Sarmiento Lake, the everpresent Andes lurking in the distance, smouldering with snow and shrouded in cloud. Passing the deep blue of the Nordenskjold Lake you will stop at Salto Grande Waterfall, which provides an incredibly dramatic backdrop combining with the mountains and the cascading water straight from the summit. Afterwards stop at Lake Grey, where you can spot the shimmering Grey Glacier across the choppy, freezing cold waters. After a quick rest at the impossibly picturesque Hosteria Pehoé, you will get a chance to walk alongside Grey Glacier and admire from up close the gigantesque ice flows.
