Rio and joining the party as it gears itself up for the 2016 Summer Olympics, take in the majestic Iguazu Falls before enjoying a steak and a tango show in cosmopolitan Buenos Aires.  Then hit the vast emptiness of Pataognia, stopping off on the Valdes Peninsula to spot some southern Atlantic wildlife and then heading to the world's most southerly city, Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego.  Then follow the Andes north and enjoy some unrivalled outdoor activities: trekking the 'W' Trail in Torres del Paine, visiting the mind-blowing Perito Moreno glacier near El Calafate, rafting the Futaleufu off the Carretera Austral, ice climb and walk on a glacier in El Chalten, ascend a volcano and peer into its crater in Pucon.  Finish up in Santiago
