Itinerary of your trip Rio To Cartagena (18 Weeks) Kingdoms & Carnivals

  • Day 1 Day 1-6: Rio To Parati
    • 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

      Day 1-6: Rio To Parati

      Rio de Janeiro, famous for it's Carnival and ability to party at any time is our starting point. Christ the Redeemer, landmark on the top of Corcovado Mountain has been named one of the 'Seven New Wonders of the World.' Nicknamed 'Cidade Maravilhosa', or the 'marvellous city' it lives up to it's name on many levels. With over 50 kms of white and golden sand beaches and South America's largest urban forest and legalised 'street art' there is a lot to see. From Rio we head to the coastal village of Parati. This unspoilt and picturesque town has remained fundamentally unaltered for three centuries. Cars have been banned from its cobbled streets that run down to the seashore, instead mountain bikes are used and are a good way to get around. Another great way to explore the secluded islands of this pristine coastline is taking a sailing trip in one of the traditional schooners.

  • Day 2 Day 7-12: Parati To Bonito
    • 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

      Day 7-12: Parati To Bonito

      Our next stop is the Pantanal region where we organise treks and horse rides out into the vast wetlands which is home to over 600 species of birds and 350 kinds of fish, piranha being common, as well as an abundance of reptiles and animals. Try your hand at Piranha fishing too!. From here we travel to Bonito where we can swim and snorkel in some of the clearest rivers and lakes in the world. Spectacular walks in the mountainous forests may reveal wildlife that includes monkeys, alligators and anaconda.

  • Day 3 Day 13-18: Bonito To Buenos Aires
    • 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

      Day 13-18: Bonito To Buenos Aires

      We travel to the incredible Iguazu Falls which form the natural border between Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil. Higher than Niagara and wider than Victoria Falls, they are an awe-inspiring place to spend the next three days. The lush tropical forest surrounding the falls has many walking trails leading to smaller hidden falls, ideal to refresh from the steaming heat and abounding with parrots, toucans, woodpeckers and colourful plants. Here you can also undertake a number of optional activities such as whitewater rafting, helicopter flights and mountain bike riding. After crossing the border into Argentina, where we also cross from Portuguese to Spanish - and a new linguistic challenge we visit the ruins of San Ignacio - a UNESCO World Heritage site, one of the most well preserved Jesuit missions in South America, dating from about 1611. Continuing on to Buenos Aires the region is home to many Jesuit Missions built in the 16th century to convert the Guarany Indians. Travel to Argentina is not complete without a visit to the country's capital, Buenos Aires.
