Salvador de Bahia: The City of All Saints
We continue our journey to Brazil and set foot in America in Salvador de Bahia. Known for its carnival, its colours and the warm welcome of its inhabitants, Salvador the Mixed Race is the point of convergence of European, African and Amerindian cultures. You will walk through the historical centre and the Pelourinho district, passing by the famous Bonfim Church on the Sacred Hill.
In the evening, you will discover more about Brazil with an evening of drumming and samba.
Brasilia: The Capital in the Jungle
The echo of samba rhythms accompanies us to Brasilia, the little-known capital and a true masterpiece of modern architecture. You will discover Niemeyer's most beautiful achievements and the surprising history of a metropolis built from scratch in only five years.
10 - 12 Feb
Iguaçu : Water Thunder at the 3 Borders
We fly to Iguaçu, on the border of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay. In the middle of the rainforest, you will admire the roaring spectacle of nature and be refreshed by the spray of the famous Devil's Throat under the amused gaze of toucans.
You will discover the Iguaçu Falls by walking along the different footbridges of the national park and also from the sky during a helicopter flight over the site.
12 - 14 Feb
Buenos Aires: The Queen of Tango
In a flash, we arrive in Buenos Aires, the most European of American capitals. You will walk in the footsteps of Evita, in the Recoleta district before discovering the historical centre of the city with its main monuments and the colourful charm of La Boca.
In the evening, you will be seduced by the passion of the Porteños during a tango show accompanied by wines from the highest and southernmost vineyards in the world.
Falkland Islands: Confetti of Empire
Our break in the Falkland Islands will be an opportunity to discover the nature of this isolated archipelago, confetti of the British Empire and witness to the geopolitical stakes of the region.
14 - 16 Feb
El Calafate: The Glaciers of Patagonia
We extend our Argentinean stay in Patagonia. El Calafate will open the door to Los Glaciares National Park where you will embark on a cruise on Lake Argentino, sailing between the icebergs to the famous Perito Moreno glacier, named after Francisco Moreno, naturalist and geographer.
16 - 17 Feb
Easter Island: Meeting the Moai
Our plane will then take us to one of the best kept secrets of our planet, 164 km² of volcanic land in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, the mysterious Easter Island. Here, the oral tradition is alive and well, passing on the history of the Moais from the Matamua to the Rapa Nui. You enter the vast Polynesian world.
You will visit the main points of interest on the island, from the volcano Rano Kau to Anakena beach and the ancient quarry Rano Raraku.
17 - 19 Feb
Santiago de Chile: Land of Poetry
Arrival in Santiago, in the "slim and slender homeland" of Pablo Neruda, Chilean poet and diplomat; you will visit his house, now a museum, and you will dive into the history of Chile through his committed poetry..
19 - 22 Feb
Iquitos: Green Gold from the Amazon
Our plane will then fly along the Andes Mountains, which we leave to reach the heart of the Amazonian forest in Iquitos, Peru.
You will embark on a three-night cruise on the long Amazon River and navigate through the labyrinth of its tributaries to meet its people, its fauna and flora. In the land of howler monkeys, giant trees, piranhas, multicoloured butterflies where Man meets Nature's benefactor.
22 - 24 Feb
Havana: The Pearl of the Caribbean
Back on shore, we take one last bow to the New Continent before flying to Cuba for the end of our wonderful Odyssey. Under Che's watchful eye, you will visit the monuments of this island's eventful history, its museums and its bewitching culture.
Perhaps to convince you never to leave, Havana will unveil its charms but never reveal its secrets or those of its ghosts.

Airlines, aircraft types and airports are subject to change without notice and are given as an indication only. Likewise, some scheduled stopovers may be replaced, cancelled or reversed due to security criteria or external parameters beyond the organiser's control and impossible to anticipate when the trips are published on our 2022 commercial media.
