Let the rhythm of sizzling South America capture your soul

Saga’s South American Adventure with Peulla tour celebrates the best of Chile, Argentina and Brazil - three countries with their own distinctive spirit and natural wonders.

The 16-night escorted tour starts by exploring the vibrant city of Santiago de Chile and San Cristobal Hill, the forest-carpeted mountain which dominates the skyline.

Chile boasts one of the world’s most beautiful lake districts and Saga guests can spend a day in Valparaiso, which has a bohemian vibe and lovely vistas, before travelling to the Vicente Perez National Park.

With the Osorno volcano as a backdrop, guests will find it hard to leave the tranquil lakeside setting of Petrohue, but crossing Lago Todos los Santos by catamaran promises more natural wonders and wildlife-spotting at the Port of Peulla.

After an overnight stay cruise to Barlioche in Argentina, an alpine town in the Nahuel Huapi National Park.

The tour changes tempo with a three-night stay in elegant Buenos Aires, a city with a charm and sophistication to rival Paris and Rome.

Take in the sights from the Plaza de Mayo and Presidential Palace to the Italian quarter of La Boca. In the evening, get ready to tango. Guests can immerse themselves in the atmosphere of the tango hall by watching the experts or simply joining in!

Next stop, the dramatic Tigre Delta, before flying to the Iguassu Falls on the border of Argentina and Brazil. The 275 falls stretch along a 2.7 kilometre stretch of the Iguassu River and passengers will feel refreshed by the spray.

Rio de Janeiro awaits and even though it is a city of six million people, visitors can wake early to hear a chorus of tropical birds.

Jump aboard the scenic train for a close-up view of Christ the Redeemer crowning Corcovado and take a breath-taking cable car ride to the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain at the entrance to Guanabara Bay.

There will be plenty of time to explore the bustling city, catch the Samba rhythms and toast this trip of a life with a local caipirinha cocktail, made from cachaca rum, lime, sugar and ice.
Saude! To your health!
