Tangara: Blue lakes and emerald coasts

15 days from £2608pp

Group Journey

This journey is a showcase for Latin America's extraordinary diversity, and visits 3 of its most fascinating cities. Santiago is set in a bowl created by the Andes and surrounded by its colossal snowy peaks. Elegant, sophisticated Buenos Aires has a distinctly European flavour, which can be appreciated alongside sultry tango and huge steaks. And Rio is a high-rise marvel, squeezed between lush, forested mountains and the beaches and surf of the Atlantic Ocean. 

Crossing the Andes from Chile into Argentina is a breathtaking journey amid shimmering turquoise lakes and towering snow-capped peaks. Following on are the magnificent cataracts at Iguazú Falls, which tumble over a vast precipice into a subtropical rainforest alive with birds and butterflies; and tranquillity in the historic colonial town of Paratí set on a leaf green bay.
