Explore the beauty of South America during this exhilarating vacation to Brazil, Argentina, Peru, and the Galápagos Islands. Visit its cosmopolitan and lively cities as well as its ancient treasures and scenic highlights, including the Amazon Jungle, where you’ll cruise along the chocolate-colored Rio Negro to its confluence with the yellow-gray Rio Solimões, where the two rivers form the Amazon. Watch for the captivating native flora and fauna. Additionally, be amazed as you view the spectacular panoramic views of Iguassu Falls-with its clouds of spray, incessant roar, and surrounding tropical growth. Experience an once-in-a-lifetime thrill in the Galápagos Islands, where you’ll be able to see many species of animals and birds that call the Galápagos their home. On your 3-night cruise, watch for blue-footed boobies, frigatebirds, sea lions, marine iguanas, giant tortoises, and more. For even more fun, consider swimming and snorkeling in search of sea life.

And that’s just the start…there’s also Machu Picchu. About 1,000 people once lived there-in around 200 structures-but archaeologists still don’t know its true purpose. Regardless, the first glimpse of this city poised high above the jungle-covered ravines is one of the most majestic images in South America. On this tour, you’ll also discover South America’s fascinating cities-Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, and Lima. You’ll have sightseeing with a local expert and leisure time in each city to browse the shops, visit the sights, sip the local drinks, sample the local cuisine, and explore the many sights.

Vibrant cities, amazing scenery, spectacular flora and fauna, and ancient structures-this vacation to South America has it all!
