The Amazon , Rio & South America Circumnavigation

Head to South America to see some amazing wonders of the world. In fact on this Cunard Queen Victoria voyage tick at least two off in one go: the Amazon and the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro. With a range of durations to choose from at various points of the 78 night roundtrip South American circumnavigation from Southampton you will experience a relatively unusual holiday to one of the most exotic cruise destinations in the world. Encounter a unique mixture of exploration and adventure where incredible scenery, amazing Flora & Fauna, colourful cultures and fascinating history are marvellously intertwined.

The Atlantic coast of South America gives you the opportunity to visit Brazil and Argentina with key features such as the Amazon, Rio De Janeiro, Sugar Loaf Mountain, Copacabana Beach and Buenos Aires. Perhaps choose an itinerary which includes a passage around Cape Horn following in the footsteps of historical greats such as Charles Darwin, Ferdinand Magellan and Sir Francis Drake incorporating Argentina, Chile and the Chilean Fjords. The Pacific Coast of South America offers Chile, Peru, Ecuador and perhaps even the ancient mountain citadel of Machu Picchu.

The longer voyages even include a full transit through the Panama Canal - yet another wonder of the world.

Brazil is a very popular cruise destination in its own right including three ports of call up the Amazon, the second longest river in the world. 60% of the Amazon rainforest is contained witihin Brazil  representing over half of the planet's remaining rainforests and it comprises the largest and most species-rich tract of tropical rainforest  in the world. As Brazil is so large it has a range of climates from equatorial rainforests in the north and semi-arid deserts in the northeast, to temperate forests in the south and tropical savannas in central Brazil.

Rio de Janeiro (River of January) is the second largest city in Brazil with a population of 6.3 million. Rio is the most visited city in the southern hemisphere and is known for its natural settings,carnival celebrations, samba and beaches such as Copacabana and Ipanema.  Some of the most famous landmarks include the giant statue of Christ the Redeemer (one of the modern sveen wonders of the world)  at 130 feet tall and built between 1922 to 1931 atop Corcovado mountain, rising 700 metres above sea level.  Also  Sugarloaf Mountain, which is  396 metres high, above the harbour with its cable car famously featured in the James Bond Movie “Moonraker”. The Sambódromo is a permanent grandstand-lined parade avenue which is used during the Carnival season that takes place each year just before lent and lasts for four days from 8pm in the evening until the following morning each day.
