Before and Beyond Antarctica
There can’t be a better way of celebrating your impending sojourn to The White Continent, than spending a few days in Rio and taking it from there. Or, if you want some time to thaw your senses before heading back to everyday life, let Buenos Aires entice you with its charm and witness the famous Iguazu falls while you’re at it.
Here’s a glimpse of how your pre-cruise and post-cruise itinerary can look like.
More than a carnival
Rio De Janeiro
How does it feel to live in one of the most dynamic cities on Earth? The vibrant hues of Rio de Janeiro is ready to take you over!
Board a cog train to explore the Corcovado Mountains. Feel exalted by one of the wonders of the modern world, the gigantic statue of Christ the Redeemer that always watches over the city. Rediscover your love of beaches at some of Rio’s finest.
The magnificent view from Urca Hill and the Sugar Loaf, one of Rio’s most endearing symbols, await your arrival. A safari at the Tijuca rain forest national park serve as a reminder that this country is, after all, the home of the Amazon and an exotic range of flora and fauna that remains to this day, unparalleled.
All this without even taking into account the endless list of architectural masterpieces, museums and experience that the city itself has to offer!
Rio, is going to surely blow your mind with a rich vista of experiences!
Eternally Cascading Beauty
A chain of cascading wonder of nearly 300 waterfalls and cataracts 3km in expanse, the Iguazu Falls is a paradise on Earth. Situated between Brazil and Argentina, the falls can be experienced from both sides of these regions.
Taller than Niagra Falls and wider than Victoria Falls, let the power and strength of water move you, when you visit the falls and the national park around it. On a specially designed walking tour that offers unparalleled views of the massive waterfalls, experience ultimate bliss.
The View from the Other Side
The only way that you can do justice to a visit the Iguazu falls is by getting a glimpse from both countries. Cross the Iguazu River which separates the two countries. Once in Argentina, the picturesque highway itself leads you towards the Argentine Iguazu Park. This gives you the best view of the Argentine side of the falls. Take a deep breath here and seize the opportunity to go to the very brink of the terrifying and yet beautiful Devil’s throat, Argentina’s largest falls.
Wash it all down in the evening with the finest wine that Argentina has to offer, a hearty meal set to the backdrop of an exclusive tango performance.
City of magic
Argentina’s capital city has been called the Paris of South America but it can aptly be summed up in four words – magic in a bottle. Let the porteño magic of Buenos Aires work its charm on you.
From glamorous neighbourhoods and wistful cemeteries to sprawling cathedrals and hidden little market places, there’s always something to see in this city. Visit the first settlements in the city and soak yourself in art, architecture and history that this city is always brimming with.
And this is just the Prologue!
…Or the Epilogue, depending on your choice.
The main course of this incredible experience is a visit to nature’s final frontier, Antarctica. It is the lure of this once in a lifetime journey that brings adventurers and passionate globetrotters alike, to the edge of the world.
