Signature Argentina and Brazil: Amazon, Pantanal and Iguazú Falls

16 days from £4,150pp

Argentina / Iguazu Falls / Brazil / The Amazon

  • ARG_IguazuFalls_Shutterstock_103737443S

Overview & Highlights

Here the accent is on the vast wilderness territories of the Brazilian Pantanal wetlands and Amazonia. Also included are the immense Iguazú Falls, which straddle the two countries, and the captivating cities of Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro. 

  • Guided tour of Buenos Aires
  • Guided visit to the Brazilian side of Iguazú Falls
  • Guided activities at Pantanal lodge
  • Guided activities at Amazon jungle lodge
  • Guided excursion to Corcovado mountain and Santa Teresa

This holiday concentrates on the twin wildernesses of Brazil, the Pantanal wetlands and the Amazon basin, but gives you time at the end in the lively city of Rio de Janeiro. Brazil has an incredible diversity of landscapes and flora and fauna, from tropical rainforests to vast wetlands, and one of the world's most impressive waterfalls. Here, we take you to all of them. 

However, the holiday begins in Argentina: Buenos Aires, the soi-disant Paris of Latin America, before continuing north to the Iguazú Falls, the immense, roaring cataracts which straddle the frontier of the two countries.

The vast Pantanal wetlands are a paradise for nature lovers, especially for wildlife observation. Unlike the areas of high jungle, the Pantanal is an open area of swampy grasslands, leaving some of the highest concentration of fauna in the continent exposed to view. Stay at one of our favourite eco lodges: there are plenty of excursions by boat, trail and on horse-back.

For many the seemingly impenetrable wilderness of the Amazon, sprawling across half of South America's vast territory, conjures an unrivalled sense of adventure which taps into some of their very earliest images of the exotic. Here you can make childhood dreams a reality, with a stay of several days at a jungle lodge not far from the city of Manaus but surrounded by the wilds of the rainforest.
