  1. Begin your adventure in fascinating Cartagena.

    Meet your English-speaking guide and driver, and begin your exploration of Cartagena, a Caribbean port city with a long and fascinating history. Founded in 1533 by Spanish conquistadors, Cartagena is known for its colonial architecture, protected by one of the most complete city walls in South America. A UNESCO World Heritage site, Cartagena’s old town is perhaps best understood by taking part in the vibrant life on its cobbled streets.

  2. Embark on a luxury cruise along the Peruvian Amazon.

    A typical trip from Cartagena to Iquitos can cost travelers a full day or more—such are the realities of flying commercially in South America. Your private jet, however, will transport you comfortably from city to city in just two and a half hours. That leaves plenty of time for lunch and an afternoon excursion to the birthplace of the Amazon River before you board your luxury cruise ship bound for one of life’s great adventures.

  3. History lives in La Paz.

    La Paz, set high on the edge of the Altiplano, is a city with an intriguing history and increasing cultural cachet. With indigenous, colonial and modern neighborhoods to explore, your adventure can begin around any corner. 

  4. Encounter an otherworldly landscape where salt is supreme.

    Board your chartered plane for a 40-minute flight to the town of Uyuni and travel on to one of the most remarkable sights in South America. Salar de Uyuni, at more than 4,000 square miles, is the largest salt flat on earth. Here, salt rises from the ground to form a thick, white crust that stretches to the horizon. It’s a desolately beautiful landscape dotted with anomalies you’ll experience firsthand, such as an “island” covered in giant cacti and a hotel made entirely of salt blocks.

  5. Spellbinding Atacama fulfills your dreams of uncommon adventure.

    Between the low coastal mountains and the Andean foothills of northern Chile, the Atacama Desert stretches for some 600 miles—no two of them, it seems, alike. Atacama is a land that invites adventure. Serrated peaks and arid valleys call out for guided exploration by foot or mountain bike. Golden sand dunes stand steep enough for the daring traveler to surf down. The salt lagoons are perfect for a buoyant soak. And when evening falls, the dark sky glitters with stars so bright they’ll steal your breath away.

  6. Some 70 feet higher than Niagara, Iguazu Falls is one of nature’s most impressive spectacles.

    The Iguazu River, which means “big water” in the Guarní language, runs through a gauntlet of islands to finally plunge from a lava cliff in a series of 275 interlinking waterfalls. Iguazu National Park, home of the falls, is a pristine preserve of subtropical rain forest with more than 2,000 identified plant and animal species, including 400 species of birds.

  7. End your trip in cosmopolitan Buenos Aires.

    Spend a last morning enjoying Iguazu before transferring to your private jet for the 90-minute flight to elegant Buenos Aires, a city known for its European feel and unsurpassed hospitality. Spend a full day exploring all the city offers—its strikingly individual neighborhoods, eclectic architecture, fascinating archeology and, of course, its love of tango, excellent beef and superior wines—before catching your independent flight home.
