South America – Iguassu; Peru and Bolivia

 

Iguassu; Peru and Bolivia

Located on the borders of Brazil; Argentina and Paraguay, everyone should see Iguassu Falls once. Rather than one great body of water like Niagara, Iguassu (aka Iguazzu) is hundreds of falls dotted along a cliff edge. The perfect trip is to spend time at a classical cliff top hotel on the Brazil side, to enable you to look down on the numerous falls across the river. Then cross the border to the Argentine side to be able to walk among the falls themselves and see the water crashing through the jungle canopy like a shampoo advert, often with clouds of butterflies, it is truly a magical place. This is often done as a side trip to other parts of South America and most of our clients decsribe it as one of the highlights.

 

The lost city of Machu Picchu, Cuzco and Lake Titicaca

Another dream trip is to Peru and Bolivia. It is very important that you acclimatise well to the altitude. To ensure this we strongly suggest a brief stay in the Sacred Valley, before moving on by the Orient Express luxury train to Machu Picchu. Most clients prefer to stay overnight at the Sanctuary adjacent to the ruins, so they can experience this magical place without the crowds at dusk and dawn. Onward then by rail to the city of Cuzco where the additional altitude should then not be an issue. After a day or two here, you can fly or take The Andean Explorer train to Lake Titicaca.  Again worth a couple of nights stopover to see the floating islands and experience it’s unusual calm and solitude. Many of our clients return pleasantly surprised with how much they enjoy the finale here.

Our local agents are long term associates and will ensure the arrangements are with English speaking guides and on a private basis.

This is a rough frame work to expand and contract into the best fit, please call to discuss.
