Starting in Rio de Janeiro and ending in Buenos Aires, the tour Wetlands, Waterfalls & Wonders is a guided overland journeys tour that takes 19 days. You will be traveling through Campo Grande, Yapeyu, Rio de Janeiro and 6 other destinations in Brazil and Argentina. Wetlands, Waterfalls & Wonders is a group tour which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others. Please see the package includes section for further details.

This trip connects two of South America's most iconic but startlingly different cities, Buenos Aires, the cosmopolitan capital of Argentina and the world's party capital Rio de Janeiro. It travels across the north of Argentina to another icon, the mighty Iguazu Falls.

Entering Brazil, we head to one of the world's most important environmental habitats, the wetlands of the Pantanal. Here we stay on a traditional Brazilian cattle ranch, exploring by horseback with the "Pantaneiros". Further north we continue on to the eco-tourism and outdoor activity capital of Bonito where you have the chance to go snorkelling through the crystal-clear waters of the surrounding rivers.

South of Rio is one of Brazil's prettiest coastlines, the Emerald Coast where we stay in the UNESCO world heritage colonial town of Paraty, to enjoy its relaxed and laid back atmosphere - a real contrast to the vibrance and glamour of Rio.

We recommend to check with your local embassies representing the countries that you are travelling to, as part of this itinerary.

Local Payment The local payment is a group fund, paid separately from the trip price on the first day of the tour. It covers everything that the group does together on the ground. This is primarily hotel accommodation and campsite fees, meals whilst camping (but not while eating in restaurants), and included activities and puts money directly back to the local community. The local payment, or kitty system, is unique to overlanding tours and provides maximum flexibility and best value on the road - you can see exactly what is being paid for, you get everything at cost price, it keeps costs competitive by leveraging group expenses and saves on administrative costs. The fund is run by the tour guide, and any excess left over at the end is returned equally to the group. Local prices are estimated in USD when we print the brochure then reviewed monthly as local costs and exchange rates vary throughout the year. It's therefore important once you book your trip to check the website regularly and just before departure for any changes to the amount.
