A private jet awaits you on this once-in-a-lifetime journey that follows the Atlantic Rim along four continents. You’ll sample the local wine at Portugal’s Madeira Island and visit markets in Ouagadougou in West Africa. In South Africa you’ll explore Cape Town and cruise the Cape of Good Hope, known as the place where the Pacific and Atlantic oceans meet. You may catch a glimpse of the 130-foot Christ the Redeemer statue as you fly into Rio de Janeiro. From Ushuaia, the world’s southernmost city, you’ll cruise to your second cape—Cape Horn. As you cross the Beagle Channel you’ll see icebergs and the famous Pia Glacier. North, in Buenos Aires, explore the historic neighborhoods and San Telmos art district before stopping at countryside estancia. You’ll see breathtaking Iguaçú Falls which spans the borders of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay before landing in Nicaragua where you’ll explore ancient and historic sites. In all, you’ll spend three weeks in luxurious surroundings with exquisite service.
