Jacana: Crossing the continent

19 days from £2,998pp
 

Group Journey

 
This is an epic journey which traverses this diverse continent from the Atlantic to the Pacific in just under 3 exhilarating weeks. Landscapes of infinite variety unfold before you; wide, white-sand beaches and sultry forests give way to the shimmering lakes and bleak wilderness of the altiplano, fringed by the ice-jacketed peaks of the high Andes. The human history is no less captivating; narratives are preserved in the magnificent Inca temples and baroque colonial architecture, whilst the indigenous villages and a multitude of open-air and covered markets offer an insight into a more contemporary way of life. 

The trip begins in Rio de Janeiro, a spellbinding city in a peerless location, sandwiched between steep forested mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, and continues to the thundering Iguazú Falls. From here you journey into the backwater that is Paraguay before venturing into Bolivia to cross the sapphire waters of Lake Titicaca. At last you reach Cusco, the capital of the Inca Empire, and a visit to the awe inspiring ruins of Machu Picchu, before heading back to sea level on the Pacific side at Lima, the former imperial City of Kings.
