Peregrine | Argentina & Brazil

Buenos Aires is South America's liveliest and most cosmopolitan city, and we take in the city’s most memorable moments, including the grand architecture of Plaza de Mayo, Recoleta's iconic cemetery and bubbling La Boca. At Iguazu Falls we witness the grand cataract’s mighty power, and if you chose an exhilarating boat trip to the thunderous base of the cascades. From there it’s off to explore Rio de Janeiro, with its sweeping sands, vibrant nightlife and spectacular setting. We take in Sugarloaf Mountain and Christ the Redeemer, as well as having plenty of free time to soak up Rio’s unique atmosphere.

  • Itinerary

    Day - 1

    Location: Buenos Aires - Welcome to Buenos Aires, the cosmopolitan epicentre of South America. You will be transferred to your hotel upon arrival. Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6pm. Please look for a note in the hotel lobby or ask reception where it will take place. We'll be collecting your insurance details and next of kin information at this meeting, so please ensure you have all these details to provide to your leader. Perhaps ask your leader for a recommended place to dine this evening.

     

    Day - 2

    Location: Buenos Aires - This morning at 10am, explore the city with a local guide (approximately four hours). Start with Plaza de Mayo and see the Casa Rosada ("Pink house"), then transfer to Recoleta and walk among the tombs and monuments of Recoleta Cemetery – the final resting place of some of the city’s most famous residents. Next, wander the cobbled streets of San Telmo and browse its famous antiques market and art displays. From here you'll take a private vehicle to La Boca and its well-known ‘Caminito’ district, before moving on to the lesser-known side of this colourful neighbourhood to visit an artist's gallery. A home-made empanada lunch at a local social project is included today. After lunch, get ready to be captivated by Argentina’s most famous dance; the Tango. In a private space a professional Tango couple will explain the dance’s origin and history, as well as demonstrating the intimately fluid movements for you. You will then be invited to join an hour long beginner’s class to learn some of the basic techniques and understand the rhythm.

     

    Day - 3

    Location: Iguazu Falls (Tour the Brazilian side) - Today, in the morning or late morning, fly to Puerto Iguazu in Argentina (2 hours), gateway to the mighty Iguazu Falls. Spend the next two days exploring the falls in depth, seeing them from both the Argentinean and Brazilian sides. The falls are two kilometres in length, and are made up of 275 waterfalls in total, some of which stretch up to 80 metres high. This makes them both higher than Niagara and wider than Victoria Falls. The Brazilian side of the falls offers great panoramic views of them. For birds-eye views of the falls, you can take an optional helicopter flight over the top of them.

     

    Day - 4

    Location: Iguazu Falls (Tour the Argentinean side) - Make an early start, 7:30am, to visit the Argentinean side of the falls today, which has boardwalks allowing you to get up close and personal with these towering rapids. Choose to get an even more exhilarating look at Iguazu with an optional zodiac boat ride below the falls. Later, about 3pm accompanied by your leader, have the opportunity to meet one of the few remaining original inhabitants of the region, the Guarani. Return to the hotel at approximately 5pm.

     

    Day - 5

    Location: Rio de Janeiro - Today cross the border into Brazil and take a flight (two hours) from Foz do Iguacu to Rio de Janeiro. Witness the intense green of Guanabara Bay and the beauty of the surrounding slopes of the Corcovado and Sugarloaf that make Rio such a majestic place. Take in the ever-present Portugese influence here, which is especially apparent in the opulent buildings constructed when the Portuguese monarchy fled Europe under the threat of Napolean and took up residence here. Be struck by the contrast between this extravagance and the destitute poverty of the favelas. The white sands of Cobacapana and Ipanema beaches offer an equally interesting snapshot of local life. For some world-renowned live music, Lapa is the place to go and join the locals for some serious dancing.

     

    Day - 6

    Location: Rio de Janeiro - Today, around 9am, you'll be taken on a full-day guided tour that spans some of Rio's most iconic sights. Head up to Santa Teresa, a beautiful artistic neighbourhood situated on a hill overlooking the city. While walking the cobbled streets you'll discover eclectic architecture, art galleries and restaurants before stopping by the famous Selaron Stairs. Continue on to Corcovado for an eagle-view of the city from the base of Christ the Reedemer. One of the new Seven Wonders of the World, this enormous white statue stands over Rio, offering sweeping 360-degree views of the city’s natural wonders. Next, it’s time to experience a different side of the city, with a visit to the Santa Marta favela. Accompanied by your local guide, you'll head through narrow alleys, learn about local life and meet some of the people who make up this vibrant community. The tour will conclude at a local house in the favela at approximately 2pm, where you will taste the most authentic food the city can offer! Our local host Sallete will welcome you into her home with a readiness to answer questions, a smile and of course a caipirinha; the national cocktail made with cachaça, sugar & lime. Lunch will be a typical dish called Feijoada, a stew of black beans, kale and pork. Expect to be finished around 4pm. 

     

    Day - 7

    Location: Rio de Janeiro - Your trip comes to an end after breakfast this morning.
