Tick South America and the spectacular glaciers of Patagonia off your bucket list, as this tour will take you to the most sought-after cities and sights of South America *for 16 action-packed days. Soak up the breathtaking scenery as you *travel from Chile through to Brazil, stopping along the way** to admire** impressive natural wonders and Unesco World Heritage sites. *Enjoy authentic experiences such as an *Argentine tango lesson with professional dancers,** visit the "Paris of South America" - Buenos Aires, and stand before the legendary** statue of Chirst the *Redeemer *in Rio de Janeiro, as you embrace the vibrant culture of this magnificent part of the world.

The Experiences – From cultural treasures to jaw-dropping nature, this truly is the tour of a lifetime!

Begin your South American adventure in the land of extremes, Chile. From the driest desert on earth to the vast southern glacial fields, this country has it all. Your first days will be spent visiting** the lively capital city, Santiago: discover the *colonial neighborhoods *with their distinctive flair and tone, visit museums, **admire grand architecture and venture to the top of San Cristobal Hill, where incredible views of the city and the Andes await you.

A quick internal flight will take you to the southernmost tip of Chile, Punta Arenas, where your trip around striking Patagonia begins. Retrace the steps of Magellan, the first European explorer to reach Tierra del Fuego - travelling to the Strait of Magellan, one of the world's busiest navigation routes **and the most important natural passage between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. **Set sail on the waters of the Ultima Esperanza Fjord and be amazed by the outstanding natural beauty surrounding you: admire the thousand-year-old Balmaceda and the Serrano glaciers, some of the** biggest glaciers in the region**.

Spend a full day exploring the breathtaking national park of Torres del Paine, part of Unesco's Biosphere Reserve system since 1978. Rising almost vertically above the Patagonian steppe, the granite mountains of Torres del Paine dominate the landscape of South America's finest national park, where you will be able to admire unparalleled nature and native animals like guanacos and Andean condors, together with azure lakes, emerald forests, thundering waterfalls and roaring rivers.

Journey to the unforgettable Perito Moreno Glacier. Known as the centerpiece of Los Glaciares National Park **- an incredible UNESCO World Heritage Site in Argentine Patagonia - Perito Moreno is **the largest ice cap outside Antarctica and Greenland, measuring an impressive 30km in length, 5km in width and 60m in height. Walk along the steel catwalks (almost 4000m total) and get as close as you can possibly get to see, hear and photograph the glacier.

After being fully immersed in nature, enjoy a change of pace as you explore the sights and culture of the Argentine city of Buenos Aires – nicknamed the** ‘Paris of South America’ for its European flavour: wide boulevards, elegant architecture, palaces and parks. **Take a tour of the city’s highlights, including the Plaza de Mayo, Metropolitan Cathedral, the colourful La Boca neighbourhood and let loose your passionate side with a *traditional tango lesson *taught by professional dancers.

Fly to Iguazu to see the breathtakingly beautiful Iguazu Falls, deemed by UNESCO to be ‘one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world’. Behold the thundering waters of the Devil’s Throat, explore the treasures of this stunning national park and pay a visit to the Brazilian side of these immense falls, Iguassu.

Last stop on this extraordinary journey of South America is the sun and fun of Brazil, with golden beaches, lush mountains, samba music and spectacular views, it's the playful Rio De Janeiro. When in Rio, you will ascend the scenic cog railway to the summit of Corcovado Hill to see the world-famous and** iconic Christ the Redeemer statue, declared one of the new seven wonders of the world. From this incredible vantage point, admire **360-degree views of the city and captivating beaches. **Walk the powdery-white sands of Ipanema and Copacabana** beaches like a 'carioca' (a resident of Rio) and soak up the dazzling beauty and incredible energy of this city.
