Unique Experience Peregrine | Argentina & Brazil Highlights

Begin in Buenos Aires, South America's liveliest and most cosmopolitan city, exploring the grand architecture of Plaza de Mayo, Recoleta's iconic cemetery and bubbling La Boca. Witness the grand power of Iguazu Falls and choose whether to take an exhilarating boat trip to the thunderous base of the cascades. Then it’s time to see Rio de Janeiro, taking in Sugarloaf Mountain and Christ the Redeemer, as well as enjoying plenty of free time to soak up Rio’s unique atmosphere. This seven-day tour packs in highlights plus smaller (but no less moving) experiences at local restaurants and lesser-known neighbourhoods.

  • Itinerary

    Day - 1

    Location: Buenos Aires - Bienvenidos! Welcome to Buenos Aires, Argentina. If you are flying into the city today, enjoy an included airport transfer to your accommodation. Your adventure officially begins with a welcome meeting at 6 pm. After the meeting, you can choose to get into the spirit of things by heading out to an optional tango show. There’s a lot to see if you arrive with time to spare before your tour begins. If you’re a wine lover, consider taking part an Urban Adventure like the Malbec Trail of Palermo.

     

    Day - 2

    Location: Buenos Aires - Enjoy a morning exploring some of Buenos Aires’ most iconic sites with your leader on a walking tour. First stop is the Plaza de Mayo to visit the original town hall, as well as the presidential palace known as the Pink House. Walk around La Boca and its ‘Caminito’ district, before moving on to the lesser-known Barracas neighbourhood and stop in at a local NGO to learn about their agroecological model of food production and community collaboration. Help prepare a meal – much of the ingredients for which are grown in the co-op garden – and then dine on the results, including alfajores (classic South American cookies) for dessert. Your leader-guided tour continues after lunch in Recoleta Cemetery, a labyrinth of ornate mausoleums. After a stop at the grave of Eva Peron, head to Palermo to see beautiful parks and the unique Floralis Generica – a huge metal flower. Enjoy a few hours of free time in the afternoon. In the evening, enjoy a professional tango performance, followed by an hour-long beginner’s class. The dancers will explain the origin of the style and its rich history.

     

    Day - 3

    Location: Iguazu Falls (Brazil) - This morning, transfer to the airport and board your flight to Puerto Iguazu in Argentina (2 hours). While you are flying into Argentina, today will actually be spent exploring the Brazilian side of Iguazu Falls, so please be sure you have any necessary visas. At over two-kilometres in length, and are made up of 275 waterfalls in total, Iguazu is higher than Niagara Falls and wider than Victoria Falls. The Brazilian side of the falls offers great panoramic views, which you’ll get to spend time taking in today. Return to your hotel in Argentina for the evening.

     

    Day - 4

    Location: Iguazu Falls (Argentina) - Rise and shine for a 7.30 am departure to the Argentinean side of the falls today, where you will be able to get up close to this incredible feat of nature. There is a system of boardwalks on the Argentinian side of the falls that allow you to access some incredible viewing points, or you could choose to take an optional Zodiac (panga) ride beneath them for an even more exhilarating approach (chat to your leader for details). At about 3 pm, you'll have to chance to accompany your leader on a visit to a Guarani community or, if you wish, you can continue admiring Iguazu Falls. Return to the hotel at approximately 5 pm and enjoy a free evening.

Give your feet a break during a lunch stop at an incredible NGO called Gastromotiva, where dishes are made by marginalised members of the community who receive free culinary training. The meals are even made using donated produce. Finish the day with a walking tour of the Port area, which is recognized for its historical significance to the African slave trade in Brazil. You’ll be joined by a local guide from the Pretos Novos Institute (Institute of Research and New Black Memory) during your walk who will illuminate the history of slavery and resistance in the area. When your tour ends at approximately 4 pm you are free to use the rest of your day however you please.
