  • Itinerary

    Day - 1

    Location: Buenos Aires - Your Latin adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6 pm today. A transfer from the airport to the hotel is included in the trip. Please look for a note in the hotel lobby or ask reception where it will take place. If you have some free time today, head out to explore the streets of this sophisticated city, often referred to as the ‘Paris of South America’. Notes: The complimentary airport transfer is only applicable on Day One of your trip or if pre-trip accommodation is booked through Intrepid (please advise flight arrival details at least 14 days prior to departure if you wish to have this transfer provided). If you can't arrange a flight that will arrive in time for the meeting, you may wish to arrive a day early so you're able to attend. We'll be happy to book additional accommodation for you (subject to availability). If you're going to be late, please inform hotel reception.

     

    Day - 2

    Location: Buenos Aires - Today explore Buenos Aires on a full-day tour with a local guide. Wander the cobbled streets of San Telmo and browse its antiques markets, then continue to Plaza de Mayo to see the presidential palace of Casa Rosada. Walk among the tombs of the Recoleta Cemetery, the final resting place of Eva Peron. From here take a private van to La Boca and its well-known ‘Caminito’ district, before moving on to the lesser-known side of the neighbourhood. Here you’ll visit an artist's gallery and eat an included lunch in support of a local social project. In the evening, perhaps enjoy a tango show, a football match or a steak and glass of malbec in one of the city’s trendy restaurants.

     

    Day - 3

    Location: Iguazu Falls - Fly to Puerto Iguazu in the northeast corner of Argentina today. The mighty Iguazu Falls straddles the border of Argentina and Brazil, and the group will be visiting the falls from both sides. The falls are over 2 km in length and consist of 275 falls in total, some of which stretch up to 80 metres high. This makes them higher than Niagara Falls and wider than Victoria Falls. Today, travel into Brazil to admire panoramic views of the waterfalls before returning to Puerto Iguazu for the night.

     

    Day - 4

    Location: Iguazu Falls - A visit to the Argentinian side of Iguazu today allows you to get up close to the waterfalls via a series of boardwalks. According to Guarani legend, Iguazu Falls was created when the serpent god M’Boy, enraged by the betrayal of a chieftain’s daughter who was promised to him, split the river in half. For a more exhilarating experience, take an optional Zodiac boat ride to the base of the falls or a helicopter flight over the top. Visit a Guarani community to meet some of the region’s few remaining indigenous people.

     

    Day - 5

    Location: Rio de Janeiro - Today, cross the border into Brazil and take an early morning flight from Foz do Iguacu to Rio. The locals say that 'if God made the world in six days, he devoted the seventh to Rio'. The day is yours to do what you like. For relaxation and people watching, head to the beaches of Copacabana or Ipanema. If the time of year is right, check out a football game or a Carnival rehearsal. As evening approaches, perhaps take the cable car up to Sugarloaf Mountain to watch the sunset before getting sweaty with the locals in the samba clubs of bohemian Lapa.

     

    Day - 6

    Location: Rio de Janeiro - This morning embark on a full-day guided tour of Rio. Discover the eclectic architecture, restaurants and art galleries of the artistic neighbourhood of Santa Teresa. Stop by the famous Selaron Steps to see artist Jorge Selaron’s gift to the Brazilian people. Continue up to Corcovado Mountain for sweeping views over Rio from the base of the Christ the Reedemer statue, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Then experience a different side of the city with a visit to the Santa Marta favela to learn about local life and meet some of the people who make up this dynamic community.

     

    Day - 7

    Location: Rio de Janeiro - Today your adventure comes to an end. There are no activities planned for the final day so you’re able to depart the accommodation at any time.
