Argentina Brazil Holiday

Argentina Brazil Holiday

We combine a lovely part of Argentina with Brazil and take you from diverse Buenos Aires to Mendoza and its surrounding vineyards with the Andes mountains in the background. We also visit the authentic North around Salta, where we have set out a stunning route for you, which you will drive in your own hire car. We move on to the thundering Iguazu Falls on the border with Brazil and then to the most beautiful city in the world, Rio de Janeiro, where your holiday ends on the city’s fabulous beaches.

In January and February, we might substitute Salta with a different attraction in Argentina or Brazil to avoid the rainy season.

With this holiday, we are now including direct outbound flights from London to Buenos Aires and direct inbound flights from Rio de Janeiro to London.
 
 

Daily Itinerary for the Argentina Brazil Holiday

Day 1 - Holiday starts in Buenos Aires
We will collect you from the airport in Buenos Aires, currently one of the world’s trendiest cities. It’s the city of the tango, the (Grand)Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo, football and Evita Peron. It is a city with many districts (barrios), each with its own story and history. An example is the La Boca Italian harbour district, which is just as lively as the alleys of Naples. You’ll be taken to your hotel where you will spend the night.

Day 2 - Day in BA
You’ll go on a great ± 3½ hour bicycle tour through the city during which you will see more than you would by car. We’ll ride across the main squares, visit a number of Barrios like La Boca, San Telmo, the Puerto Madero harbour or – instead – the northern districts of Palermo and Recoleta.

Day 3 - Day in BA
Today, you can visit one of the lovely districts that you didn’t explore with the guide yesterday. In the evening, you‘ll attend a tango show, learn about the history of the tango and enjoy the melancholy music. You will enjoy dinner during the show and you’ll have the opportunity to participate in a tango lesson. At the end of the evening, you will be returned to the hotel when it suits you.

A day on which you may do whatever you like. As an optional excursion, you could visit the Tigre Delta, which is less than 30 km from central BA.

The landscape then gradually changes into lovely vineyards as you approach Cafayate. This town is mainly known for its Spanish colonial style and its wines. It is also an ideal base from which to embark on great trips in the area. You will spend the night in Cafayate.
