What to Expect

Activity Level

Takes into consideration the physical requirements for each of the trips, walking, hiking, climbing in and out of safari vehicles etc.
           Moderate

Travelers should be able to climb 60 stairs consecutively, plus walk at least 3 miles over some steep slopes and loose or uneven surfaces without difficulty. Walks typically last for 3 or more hours at a time. Altitude can range from 5,000 to 7,000 feet.

Pacing

Takes into consideration the length of bus rides, flights, number of destinations in the number of days
           Moderate

Pacing is sometimes robust, and may include several long days with early hotel departures, active sightseeing and evening activities. Opportunities for daytime rest and rejuvenation may be limited on most days. May include significant motor coach time, two or more on-tour flights, and/or occasional travel via non-traditional means such as safari vehicles, Zodiac ship tenders, rickshaws/pedi-cabs, etc.

PACING:

  • Your comprehensive South America travel itinerary includes a moderately-paced itinerary.
  • Look forward to 6 destinations in 14 nights, with 2 nights in Santiago, 2 nights in Santa Cruz, 2 nights in Montevideo, 4 nights in Buenos Aires, 2 nights in Iguassu Falls, and 2 nights in Rio de Janeiro.

PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS:

  • Moderate walking is required throughout your South America adventure.
  • In Iguassu Falls, there is walking on well-maintained trails and catwalks daily, with both days including an approximately 2-mile-long walk at Iguassu.
  • There is the possibility of long lines to clear customs, particularly when entering Brazil.
  • Please note that the streets in Colonia del Sacramento are all cobblestones, and this area can only be visited on a walking tour.
  • Please refer to Vantage’s wheelchair- and handicapped-traveler policy as this journey does have some physical limitations and many venues are not wheelchair-accessible, particularly on the Cuzco and Machu Picchu optional pre-extension.

TERRAIN & TRANSPORTATION:

  • All sightseeing is on air-conditioned coaches with guides.
  • In Rio, there is a gondola ride to the top of Sugar Loaf and a cog train ride on Corcovado.
  • Some of the walking on tours may be over uneven terrain, cobblestone walkways and paths.

CLIMATE:

  • Temperatures can be quite hot and humid, particularly at Iguassu Falls during their summer months (November–March).
  • Remember that seasons are at different times of the year in the Southern Hemisphere.
  • Since the weather is unpredictable, please check weather sites online for 10-day forecasts closer to your departure date to plan your packing accordingly.
