About the holiday: Take in highlights of Argentina, Chile and mysterious Easter Island during this holiday. You'll start in the 'Paris of South America', Buenos Aires, with its elegant 19th-century architecture, monuments and colourful neighbourhoods. Tour the city and view the Plaza de Mayo, Metropolitan Cathedral and Casa Rosada; you can also take a tango lesson with professional Argentine tango dancers.
Fly into Santiago, the charismatic capital of Chile, for a city tour. Take in the historical city center with its colonial buildings, the lively Plaza de Armas with its fountains and sculpture, and drive up San Cristóbal Hill for a magnificent panoramic view of the city, lit up against a backdrop of the towering Andes Mountains.
Next, travel to remote Easter Island. "Few areas in the world possess a more mystical pull than this tiny speck of land, one of the most isolated places on Earth", claims Lonely Planet. Enjoy a welcome cocktail and explore the archaeological wonders and mysterious stone structures on the Island, stopping at Rano Raraku, a quarry of almost 900 stone statues. You'll also drive to the beautiful beach of Anakena, where you have the opportunity to enjoy the warm Pacific Ocean. Take in more mystical sites, drive up the extinct volcano Rano Kau for a breathtaking view of Crater Lake and more before flying back to Australia.
