Sample Itinerary

An SA Expeditions guide will meet you at the airport and take to your Rio de Janeiro hotel. Depending on your time of arrival, we can arrange an activity in the intoxicating city for the afternoon or evening.

After waking up in the beautiful and vibrant city of Rio de Janeiro, you'll set off on a tour up Corcovado Mountain to visit the iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer. You'll ascend the mountain with your private guide and enjoy Rio's most famous landmark and one of the New 7 Wonders of the World up close.

Get to know Rio a bit better by taking an informative tour though its downtown. You'll pass the famous Sambadrome and Metropolitan Cathedral on your way to Sugarloaf Mountain, another postcard-perfect Rio landmark. To get to the top, you'll take an exciting two-stop ride in a glass cable car. From Sugarloaf's peak you'll have spectacular panoramic views of Guanabara Bay, Corcovado, and the cityscape.

In the morning, transfer to the airport for your flight to Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil. Upon arrival you will be transferred to the Brazilian side of the falls, best known for far-as-the-eye-can-see vistas of the entire site. From the walkways you'll enjoy panoramic views of Iguazu's 275 falls which stretch an impressive mile across. After your Iguazu tour, you'll continue in private transportation to your comfortable hotel on the Argentine side of Iguazu.

This morning you'll experience Iguazu Falls from the Argentine viewing points. Argentina's Iguazu National Park allows an intimate waterfall experience with walkways and paths that hug the falls. In the morning you'll visit the thunderous Devil's Throat, the largest set of waterfalls in the park, and after lunch you'll hike the lower circuit, through verdant forest teeming with life, where you'll get even closer to the water.

After breakfast, you'll be driven to the airport on the Brazilian side for your flight back to Rio de Janeiro and final international departure.
