&Beyond South America’s tailormade luxury itineraries showcase the continent’s most iconic destinations, from the mighty Iguazu Falls, intriguing Easter Island, fertile wine regions, arid Atacama Desert (one of the world’s driest deserts), bustling Buenos Aires (the “Paris” of South America), and of course Patagonia, which is the gateway to Antarctica.
A land of breathtaking extremes, Chile’s landscapes are diverse, from icy glaciers, arid deserts and tranquil lakes, to rugged mountains, dense rainforests and emerald fjords. The country is surprisingly long and narrow, covering a vast stretch along South America’s western shoreline.
World-famous for its tango, steak and football, Argentina is the eighth largest country in the world and its contrasting vistas will take your breath away. From the cosmopolitan city of Buenos Aires with its fine eateries, exceptional shopping and vibrant nightlife, to the country’s lush wetlands, flourishing rainforests, cascading waterfalls and snow-capped mountains, there is something for everyone.
The options to explore are endless. Land on an enormous turquoise glacier following a scenic helicopter flip and toast the sun as it sets over the icy horizon. Tuck into a delicious home-cooked meal at a local residence in Santiago. Spend an evening stargazing with a professional astronomer. Float silently over wine vineyards in a hot air balloon. Witness the fascinating archaeological sites and photograph the mysterious monolithic stone statues on remote Easter Island.
We couldn’t be more excited to start revealing the wonders of these two exhilarating and intriguingly beautiful countries to our guests. Click here to discover the charm of Chile and the adventure that abounds in Argentina.
