Overview & Highlights
A mix of urban elegance and magnificent natural landscapes: includes first class accommodation in Brazil and Argentina’s top two cities, Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires; Iguazú Falls, and a top-of-the-range estancia in cattle country.
This luxurious taste of Brazil and Argentina starts in Rio, where you stay at the Belmond Copacabana Palace, which faces the blue green rollers of the Atlantic Ocean breaking onto Copacabana beach - the heart of Rio's beach life. At Iguazú Falls, you will step out of your room at Belmond Hotel Das Cataratas to the roar of water crashing over granite cliffs fringed by tropical rainforest.
Move on to Buenos Aires, a city oozing culture and nostalgia. To suit this mood you stay at one of the continent’s finest traditional properties, the classic Alvear Palace, which numbers presidents, royalty and celebrities among its guests. Having explored a few of the attractions and savoured cutting edge cuisine at top restaurants and perused classy boutiques you head off back into the countryside. Unwind for a few days at an elegant estancia in the cattle plains of the pampas.

What our clients say
"I was particularly impressed with the scenery in Bolivia. I had expected the salt flats but the rest of the country was a real bonus. On the optional excursions, I particularly enjoyed Chacaltaya and the star gazing in San Pedro."GP, Northwich
This was my first trip with JLA – everything worked really well, trip well balanced and great accommodation. This was assisted by Max who was a great tour leader.CB, London
"Overall, the party gelled very well, the tour leader was a great guide and travelling companion we saw some wonderful sights - Machu Picchu and the other Inca sites especially. The geography of the Andes, the Salt Flats, the desert and moon valleys were stunning”JT, Ashford
Machu Picchu was the ultimate climax at the end of the tour & definitely best to see it lastly. However all the previous places, people & food all definitely contributed hugely to a truly memorable trip - a visit to Peru with the preceding visits made the whole adventure far more meaningful & pleasurable.EA, London
"This was a very important holiday for us and we were a little apprehensive but it was a wonderful experience."HB, Perth
This was such a good trip, with varying sights and weather, from the tropics to perishing Patagonia!AW, Orpington
