Sultry samba beats and untamed beauty
Vibrant Buenos Aires is a stopover that will win you over, and provides the perfect springboard for many South American itineraries. Air New Zealand can get you there with three return services per week to Buenos Aires via Auckland. With Air New Zealand’s partner airlines, you can then connect to a further 13 South American destinations and over 30 domestic locations in Argentina, including Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Lima.
Whether you take an Amazonian jungle trek, a hike in the Argentine Andes or climb to Peru's Machu Picchu you'll never regret it. For a vibrant, loud and life affirming big-city experience, lose yourself at Carnival in Rio de Janeiro and dance the tango in Buenos Aires. To get well off the beaten path, try communing with the varied and delightful nature of the Galapagos Islands, 1,000 kilometres from Ecuador. Find a very far-flung (and contested) corner of Britain on the Falkland Islands.
Head to Venezuela to admire the world's highest waterfall: Angel Falls then make your way to the coast for some stunning beaches. Of course, Brazil is also a beach beauty and no chance to hit the sand here should be passed up. Remember Chile isn't always chilly but has some of the best ski resorts in the Southern Hemisphere. So when South America calls, don't miss answering.
