Sandpiper: Atlantic to Pacific in style

18 days from £4608pp

Group Journey

This trip combines the haunting beauty of Patagonia’s glacier-carved Torres del Paine, the Iguazú Falls and the Patagonian lake district with three of the continent's most vibrant and exciting cities: Rio de Janeiro; Buenos Aires and Santiago. Travel in comfort: all your transport is private and the accommodation is among the best locally.

Your journey begins in Rio, a high-rise chaotic masterpiece squeezed between the ocean surf and precipitous forested mountains. Spend a couple of days close to the roaring Iguazú Falls, deep in the rainforest on the Brazilian-Argentine border, before discovering the grand boulevards and cafés of cosmopolitan Buenos Aires. After traversing the Andean cordillera on the spectacular lakes crossing you jet further south to explore southern Chile's jagged snow-dipped peaks, glacial lakes and the ice-carved landscape of the Torres del Paine National Park. Your trip ends with a smooth glass of Carmenère in the lush surrounds of a vineyard just outside Santiago.
