Rio to Quito via Manous

13 weeks from GBP £2,600 plus local payment US$1,440 (What’s this?)

An expedition through the heart of South America, visiting everything from pristine, deserted beaches to colonial towns and cities steeped in South America's rich history, via the steamy interior of the Brazilian Amazon.  At times this trip will be extremely demanding due to the climate and the arduous conditions, but it will always be rewarding.  After traversing the long roads of coastal and central Brazil, we meet a riverboat that plunges us deep down the Amazon to Manaus.  We will experience Venezuela's stunning natural beauty including Canaima National Park (home to Angle Falls), as well as its exotic wildlife in Los Llanos and Henri Pittier National Park plus adrenaline activities in Merida.  In Colombia there is the chance to enjoy the vibrant cities of Cartagena, Medellin and Bogota, before finishing in Quito, Ecuador, surrounded by snowcapped volcanoes.
