ARGENTINA & BRAZIL – 12 Days

Tour Buenos Aires, Iguazu Falls, Ibera & Rio

During this 12-day journey through Argentina and Brazil you’ll start by discovering the beautiful tradition of tango in Buenos Aires and a local guide will show you all you need to know about this incredible city. Then, you’ll fly to Esteros de Iberá, an incredible, off-the-beaten-path region in Argentina where wildlife is ever-present. After exploring the pristine nature of the Iberá Wetlands, you’ll travel to Iguazú Falls and visit the famous Northwestern region of Argentina, finally ending your trip by crossing borders into the always-welcoming land of Brazil. Explore Brazil’s beautiful beaches and sip on a caipirinha while watching the sunset.

Day 1 – Your Adventure in Argentina, starts in Buenos Aires

 

Upon arrival, you’ll be transferred to the city and you’ll have the rest of the day to enjoy Buenos Aires at your own pace. Buenos Aires is a marvelous, energetic, cosmopolitan city, full of color and different styles of architecture. 

The capital of Argentina, and described as the Paris of South America, Buenos Aires proudly embraces its title, and also shows off plenty of its own culture! Argentinians are usually eager to host visitors; if you walk the streets with a map, someone will surely stop and ask if you need directions…that’s just our spirit! 

So, for this first day, feel free to wander the cobblestone streets lined with outdoor cafes, enjoy the mouthwatering aroma of world-famous Argentine beef sizzling on an open parrilla (barbeque), and browse the local antique and artisan markets that offer plenty of bargain shopping.

Day 2 – Buenos Aires City Tour & Tango Show

 

In the morning we’ll pick you up to enjoy our 5-hour Buenos Aires city touryou will be swept away by the highlights of our beloved Buenos Aires. Over the course of a half-day you will have the chance to visit the historical and political center of the city; Plaza de Mayo and the Pink House (the presidential house).

 

Next, we’ll move on to San Telmo, with its cobblestone streets and the oldest residential neighborhood, and then to La Boca where Buenos Aires turns colorful and tango is ever-present. Come walk Caminito street and dance with the locals. The next stop is the chic and aristocratic Recoleta, where the big palaces remind us why Buenos Aires is called the “Paris of the South”.

 

In the evening we’ll pick you up from your hotel to take you to a mystical place where you’ll discover one of our most ancient traditions. Tango is more than our national dance… tango is our immigrant origins, the talent of our local artists, the sensuality of Argentine women and our way to deal with a broken heart; dancing our way through tragic, and yet eternal, love stories.

 

Tonight you will enjoy a 3-hour professional display of tango and music with a group of local artists onstage immersed in an elegant and alluring place. The manners, ambience, clothes and dance steps which tango-lovers used to practice 100 years ago will come to life again and you will travel back in time for a night.

 

This spectacular demonstration of the finest local dancing will be accompanied by delicious Argentine and international cuisine. Dinner is all-inclusive, beverages included so you can lose yourself in the ethereal taste of Malbec wine. At the end of the evening, around midnight, you will be driven back to your hotel, fully in love with the bohemian spirit of our incredible city.

Day 3 – Buenos Aires Tours

 

On your free day in Buenos Aires, you can discover the secrets of La Pampa and Argentina’s rural culture by adding a day-tour to a traditional estancia (ranch).

 

Argentina is world-famous for its fútbol (soccer) players, but also for the vastness of its green-tinted fields, best known as ‘La Pampa’. That endless land at the edge of the horizon is still home to the descendants of the first ‘gauchos’ (Argentine cowboys), who still care for and work the land as their ancestors taught them to.

 

If you decide to take this tour, we’ll pick you up from your hotel and take you to a traditional village, 2 hours away from Buenos Aires, where you’ll learn about the gaucho culture and traditions, stroll around the beautiful, old streets, and browse through museums and classic pulperías (grocery stores).

 

Then, we’ll head to a colonial-style working ranch that was built in 1880, where you’ll enjoy a typical asado (barbecue) before either a horseback ride in nature or a relaxing bike ride.

 

For those who like to take things slow while on vacation, there is also a peaceful swimming pool and many sunny relaxation areas where you can take ‘la siesta’ (an afternoon nap), a very important ritual which is deeply rooted in Argentina’s rural culture.

 

At the end of the day, we’ll take you back to your hotel in Buenos Aires to enjoy your last evening in ‘the city that never sleeps’.

 

 

 

Say Hueque Tips

 

Buenos Aires offers many spectacles (movies, theater, music!) every night. What about ending your travel adventure by visiting the most famous theater of South America? We recommend that you visit the Theater Colon, an Argentine opera house with some of the best acoustics in the world. This is one of the prides of Buenos Aires!

Day 4 – From Buenos Aires to Posadas & Iberá Wetlands

 

Today we’ll pick you up from your hotel and drive you to the airport to take your flight to Posadas. Upon arrival in Posadas you will be taken to a local estancia (typical Argentine ranch), settled in the Esteros del Iberá area, near the popular wetlands.

 

Esteros del Iberá is more of a once-in-a-lifetime experience than a tour. This is the perfect place for travelers who want to experience ecotourism,  explore an off-the-beaten-path destination in Argentina, and be in pure contact with nature and local wildlife.

 

Iberá Wetlands are the second-largest wetlands in the world after Pantanal in Brazil, and are one of the biggest fresh water reservoirs on the continent. This estancia is the perfect base to explore the area and enjoy a typical gaucho environment. It is much more similar to a family house than a hotel, so you will have the chance to try homemade food and learn about inhabitants’ customs. Once in the estancia you will have the afternoon to explore the beautiful, secluded countryside on foot or on horseback.

Day 5 – Ibera Wetlands Tours: nature & wildlife

 

After breakfast we will sail towards the Corrientes Stream where an unforgettable fauna-exploration awaits us amongst the famous floating islands of the Iberá lagoon. The “embalsados” are floating islands made up of aquatic roots and sediments. Their thickness can vary from a few inches up to 7 feet, allowing 330 pounds marsh deer to walk across them.

 

These islands are able to move from place to place due to the area´s strong winds, causing the geography of the lagoon to change constantly, which has given rise to many of its mysterious legends.

 

Take a boat trip to see alligators and capybaras, and enjoy some flora and fauna sightseeing. The natural reserve is home to some exotic species declared Provincial Natural Monument like the marsh deer and some impressive aquatic vegetation.

 

 

Say Hueque Tips

 

Take a look at the Esteros del Iberá native fauna and make your own “checklist” of the species you can find; if you’re lucky you may get to see them all! The best time to spot wildlife in this spellbinding place is really early in the morning or at sunset, when the animals are more active.

 

 

South America tours are the best option to explore Argentina, Uruguay, Chile and Peru.

Day 6 – Estancia/ Posadas / Puerto Iguazu

 

Say goodbye to the awe-inspiring sunrise of Iberá and get ready to continue your journey. In the morning, you’ll be picked up and driven to Posadas, approximately 4 hours away.  Once you arrive in Posadas you’ll take the public bus to Puerto Iguazú (200 miles away), the gateway city to the famous Iguazú Falls. This journey takes about 5 hours, and if you would prefer to travel via private transportation, please just let us know and we will quote it for you.

 

Upon arrival in Puerto Iguazú, you will be taken to your hotel. You will have the afternoon to relax and enjoy the tropical climate and jungle setting. If you’re eager to explore, you can visit the “Hito tres fronteras”, a viewpoint west of the town center that stands high above the turbulent reddish-brown junction of the Iguazú and Paraná rivers, which also form the Triple Frontera, or Triple Border between Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay.

For the most adventurous, we recommend taking a bike tour through the rainforest with a specialized guide. You will discover the flora and fauna, the sounds of the jungle, the trails of little native animals and the traditions of the Guaranies.

Day 7 – Iguazu Falls Tours: Argentine Side

 

Today our driver and bilingual guide will pick you up at your hotel and drive you to Iguazu National Park, where you’ll enjoy a private tour to the Argentine side of Iguazú Falls.

 

The falls are surrounded by a humid subtropical forest where the exuberant vegetation is home to many different species of wildlife. Our guide will help you spot some of them: toucans, parrots and coatis, just to name a few.

 

Lower and upper walkways weave in and around the falls, permitting up-close and personal experiences with this magnificent spectacle of nature. The Argentine side of the falls is filled with a myriad of paths, walkways and stairways which allow you to have an experience from many different perspectives. 

 

You will also have the chance to visit the “Devil’s Throat”; the largest of the falls and for many, the most spellbinding. To get to the Devil’s Throat, you’ll take the ecological train and then walk out along boardwalks. 

 

After walking around and taking pictures of waterfalls, animals and plants, you will have some free time to eat lunch in this amazing environment. This exciting, 7-hour excursion is highly recommended in order to experience the true power of Iguazú Falls. 

 

 

 

Say Hueque Tips 

 

Would you love to have a “Great Adventure” in Iguazú? The Great Adventure (“Gran Aventura”) is an optional tour you can add on to this day. You will take an open-air jeep through the rainforest, and then a zodiac open-air boat up the river to the base of the falls (there is a 100% chance that you will get soaking wet on this boat trip, so be sure to take some extra clothes!).

Day 8 – Iguazu Falls Tours: Brazilian Side

 

After breakfast, enjoy a 4-hour excursion to the Brazilian side of Iguazú Falls. You’ll be crossing borders today so please, don’t forget your passport! 

 

While Argentina has 80% of the falls on its side, Brazil has the best panoramic view. On the Argentine side you will have the sensation of being right inside the falls, but only by visiting the Brazilian side will you fully appreciate the immensity of Iguazú Falls.

 

This is a private tour, so take your time to enjoy it and feel it, to stroll the different walkways and feel the spray of water in your face. Take the boardwalk over the Salto Santa María; it feels like walking on the water. Get closer to the “Devil’s Throat” and experience the power of the water! Although you’ll be looking into Argentina, your feet will be on the ground in Brazil! Where does Argentina start and Brazil end? Well, it’s time to walk the line.

 

Back from the footbridge, you’ll have some free time to use the restrooms, visit the gift shop and take a special elevator to an especially high viewpoint. At the end of the tour, we’ll drive you back to your hotel.

Day 9 – From Puerto Iguazu to Rio de Janeiro (Brazil)

 

Time to leave the jungle and fly to one of the most exotic destinations in South America. At the set time, we’ll pick you up from your hotel and drive you to Foz de Iguaçu airport to take your flight to Rio de Janeiro. Upon arrival to Rio’s airport, we’ll be waiting to provide transportation to your hotel. Enjoy your leisure time today exploring this vibrant city — you have just arrived in one of the powerhouses of South America!

 

An exotic mix of beach and mountains, with its colorful colonial neighborhoods and modernist big-city style, Rio is a must-see destination to add to your bucket list. This is the cariocas’ land, as locals call themselves, where the passing of time is synonymous with the rhythm of samba

 

Many people think of Brazil as merely an amazing paradise beach and they are not entirely wrong. But, this mysterious and passionate corner of the globe is much more than just a pristine sandy utopia…

 

Rio de Janeiro (‘River of January’ in Portuguese), which was classified as a Cultural Landscape by UNESCO, is a metropolitan gem tucked between the mountains and the sea. Rio is best-known for its bossanova (sultry Brazilian music genre), mouth-watering feijoada (a traditional bean and pork stew), refreshing caipirinhas (classic Brazilian cocktail), and the beaming smiles of its people.

 

 

 

Say Hueque Tips

 

The perfect place to try all these Brazilian classics is the bohemian Lapa neighbourhood which sits at the edge of the historical downtown hub. Enjoy the day mingling with locals in this incredible part of the city — stop by the Aqueduto da Carioca to take a picture with its magnificent white arches, and visit the Escalera de Selaron (Selaron’s stairway), a 215-step stairway decorated with tiles from all around the world. Find the beautiful images and messages hidden throughout its multicolored steps! Discover even more ideas on how to spend your time in the city in our Rio de Janeiro Travel Guide.

Day 10 – Rio de Janeiro Tours - FD Santa Teresa, Corcovado & Tijuca Forest

 

Today you will travel to the spellbinding Corcovado Hill, home to the famous Christ the Redeemer statue, which has achieved celebrity status around the world through each postcard sent by visitors from Rio.

 

After breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel in a jeep and take you on a 4-hour tour of Corcovado Hill, the rocky, 2329-foot guardian of Guanabara Bay. We’ll pass by Cosme Velho neighborhood, one of the most elegant places in Rio, and take the red cog train up to Corcovado Hill, crossing the dense vegetation of Tijuca forest. From here you’ll start having your first taste of incredible views of the bay and the city! At the end of the railtrack, the granitic giant awaits. Christ the Redeemer stands on the top of Corcovado Hill with arms wide open, praying for the wellbeing of Rio de Janeiro.

 

From this privileged spot you will also see Sugarloaf mountain (another classic destination for travelers), the beautiful Southern beaches, and the Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, whose waters support a gigantic floating Christmas tree during the holiday season.

 

At the end of this day trip, you’ll return in the cog train through the forest and back down the mountain. On our way back to your hotel, we’ll stop to discover the traditional Santa Teresa district, with its artisanal galleries and historic bondinho (an old-school trolley car).

 

Afterwards, we’ll leave you at your hotel to enjoy the rest of your leisurely evening. It’s the perfect opportunity to go mingle with some carioca beachgoers on the famous Copacabana Beach, or relax in the ethereal Playa Vermelha.
