Brazilians say that God made the rest of the world in six days, and devoted the seventh to Rio. The jagged Sugarloaf rises from dark blue Guanabara Bay, with legendary beaches like Copacabana and Ipanema in the foreground, forested mountains behind. This great city has an enticing atmosphere of samba and fun, and its locals are as joyous as they are beautiful.


Santos (São Paulo)

11/19/2019 6:00:00 PM

The leading port of Brazil and outlet to the sea for São Paulo, the largest city of the country, Santos is a great center of the coffee trade. A prominent building in the city is the Coffee Exchange. Popular seaside resorts are in the area. Founded in 1543, Santos became a major port when the railway from the interior was completed in 1867.
Santos itself, located 45 mi/70 km southeast of Sao Paulo, is Brazil's leading commercial port - both Santos and next-door neighbor Guaruja afford a wide range of nice beaches and boat tours.

Dynamic and bustling, a city which seems never to sleep, Buenos Aires is one of the most exciting cities in Latin America. Tango was born here, restaurants serve an all manner of world cuisine, bars play the latest music, cafés spill on to the streets and nightclubs allow dancing throughout the night. Cultural hub of a society which traces its roots to European immigration, it is famous throughout South America for its theatres, museums and galleries. Gucci, Armani, Prada, to name a few, line the boulevards catering for the fashion conscious porteños, their offerings as stylish as anything found in the cities in Europe or North America.

Slightly threadbare and charmingly out of date, Montevideo harks back to pre-war days when it was the "Switzerland of South America." Art deco and art nouveau façades reflect this flourishing past, while the impressive Plaza Independencia, with its colonnades and open-air cafés, is a perfect place to savor the present.

Cape Horn

11/27/2019

The world's southernmost city, Ushuaia overlooks Beagle Channel, named after the ship that took Charles Darwin to the bottom of the world. Founded just over one hundred years ago, this rustic town is situated amidst incredible snowcapped mountains, dramatic waterfalls, massive glaciers, and a forest known for its red foliage. Tierra del Fuego, the "Land of Fire," twelve miles to the west of Ushuaia, is known for its glacial landscape and its national park, which is a bird-watcher's paradise.

Punta Arenas

11/29/2019 10:00:00 AM

11/29/2019 10:00:00 PM

Punta Arenas is the southernmost city on Earth, overlooking the Straits of Magellan. Situated astride one of the world's historic trade routes, its prosperity has risen and fallen with that trade. Punta Arenas enjoyed its first great boom during the California Gold Rush, when it served as a haven for great clipper ships. Although the port's importance diminished after the opening of the Panama Canal, the city reached even greater prosperity early in this century as the center of Chile's international wool trade. Today, Punta Arenas reflects a great mix of cultures, from English sheep ranchers to Portuguese sailors, and it remains an utterly fascinating testament to the Chile's rich history. Punta Arenas is also the starting point for excursions to some of the most spectacular scenery in the world.

Suggested Private Excursions

Punta Arenas: Exploring the End of the World - 3.5 hours

Punta Arenas: Flavors of Patagonia - 4 hours

Punta Arenas - A day on a Patagonian Ranch - 5 hours

Canal Sarmiento

11/30/2019

11/30/2019

The west side of the Sarmiento Canal is flanked by Madre de Dios Island, with towering limstone peaks that fall precipitously into the channel. The east side is interspersed with islands and eventually meets the Chilean mainland. Stunning Amaila Glacier is a marvelous splash of blue and white in a country that ancient explorers described as "where the soil is swampy, cold, and unfit for cultivation, and whose climate is thoroughly cheerless." Oh, if they had only looked around to see that penguins, seabirds and mighty whales find it all quite agreeable.

The Chilean Fjords offer some of the most awe-inspiring sights of your journey. Simply look to the sky to see graceful Andean condors floating on the wind.

Evocative of Switzerland, Chile's lake district is noted for its pristine, almost Alpine scenery and bracing climate.
