South American Odyssey

Rio de Janeiro to Santiago

Sample the unique cultures of South America on this thrilling vacation to Brazil, Argentina, and Chile, including stays in Rio de Janeiro, Iguassu Falls, Buenos Aires, Bariloche, and Santiago.

On this tour, you’ll see some amazing scenery and natural wonders, including Iguassu Falls, located on the border of Brazil and Argentina. See the falls from both sides—with their thunderous roar, torrential downpour, and brilliant rainbows. Everywhere you look, there is water pouring down! Words cannot describe the sheer wonder of the falls! But that’s not all…you will stay at the famous Belmond Hotel Das Cataratas just steps away from the falls inside Iguassu National Park! Even more beauty awaits you in Bariloche, which boasts some of Argentina’s most glorious scenery. Take a chairlift ride to a lookout point at Cerro Campanario, rated one of the top 10 viewing spots by National Geographic. Experience breathtaking panoramic views and breathe fresh mountain air. Finally, enjoy the spectacular scenery as you cross the Andes Lakes by boat.

In addition to beautiful scenery, you’ll also experience the vibrant cities—Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, and Santiago—and enjoy a guided sightseeing tour in each city. A highlight of any trip to Rio is the Christ the Redeemer statue, the 98-foot statue of Jesus that was elected a New Seven Wonders of the World. You’ll take a scenic cog railway to the top of Corcovado Mountain, where you can admire 360-degree views of the city. In Buenos Aires, stroll the streets of this friendly town and experience a Tango show—a passionate, sizzling dance. You’ll even have the chance to dance the Tango at a lesson! Outside of Buenos Aires, visit an estancia (ranch) to learn about the life of gauchos (cowboys). In Santiago, you will visit one of Chile’s famous vineyards in Chile’s wine country.

From the lakes and mountains to the towns and cities, this vacation through South America is sure to leave you with lots of memories and photos.
