Abercrombie & Kent reveals fresh Americas trips

Abercrombie & Kent has released a refreshed spate of trips to the Americas.

Drawing on its 30-plus years delivering journeys to North, Central and South America, the tour operator has launched a refreshed portfolio of 22 suggested Tailor-Made Journeys, 7 Luxury Small Group Journeys (including three Wings Over the World journeys by private chartered air) and 10 extraordinary cruises that take guests into the heart of the wilderness.

Whether exploring Mendoza’s winelands, off-roading in the Atacama Desert, venturing into the wilds of Patagonia, flight-seeing staggering Iguazú Falls, or cruising through remote Alaska, there’s sure to be something for every client.

Here’s a sneak preview of what’s on offer:

14-days Peru in depth 

Discover the mysteries of Machu Picchu, the lost city of the Incas; experience the colonial splendour and indigenous culture of Cusco; roam high above the Amazon rainforest on a canopy walkway; taste the real Peru in an intimate A&K cooking lesson; and explore the bohemian art district of Lima.

9-days flavours & rhythms of Brazil 

Journey through magical Brazil, where music and dance are as vital to life as air and water. Discover Rio’s magical twilight on the summit of Sugar Loaf Mountain; witness an explosion of rhythm and Afro-Brazilian culture; stand among the thundering, steaming cauldron of 275 waterfalls at Iguassu Falls; and participate in a cooking class for Bahia’s best-known dish, moqueca.

15-days Chile & Argentina: Patagonian Wilderness 

Experience the coasts, capes and wild seas of the far south, from Santiago to Buenos Aires on this stunning journey to the end of the world. Hike on a glacier where the ice cracks and rumbles around you; voyage through magical ocean fjords and channels; and embark on wilderness adventures with a skilled naturalist in tow.

13-days Treasures of Argentina

Be swept away by sensuous tango and world-class wine in Buenos Aires; venture into the roaring Garganta del Diablo canyon in Iguazú Falls; indulge in the wines and gastronomy of Argentina’s Mendoza winelands; and explore the village of Purmamarca, at the foot of the famous Hill of Seven Colours.

13-days Mexico: Cities of the Sun

In Mexico, you’ll trace the steps of legends, from the all-conquering Aztecs to the revered artists of Mexico City. Uncover Mayan secrets in ancient jungle-swathed cities; drift down the Grijalva River to wonderous Sumidero Canyon; witness the cultural traditions of San Cristóbal de las Casas; and delve into the archaeological marvel of Teotihuacán.

14-days Canyons of the Southwest

Explore the spectacular canyons of America’s southwest. Carved through solid rock by winding rivers, these natural marvels are sculpturally breathtaking. Seek out the wildlife of vast desert ecosystems, travel off-road by jeep to ancient cliff dwellings, discover the epic Grand Canyon by helicopter, and drift through Glen Canyon on the waters of the Colorado River — before taking to the bright lights of Vegas.

12-days Wings Over Argentina, Chile & Brazil

Experience the very best in luxury and service, with an intimate small group, on private chartered A&K flights. Discover three vibrant nations, experiencing their people, cultures and culinary treasures; from life on an estancia (ranch) outside of Buenos Aires to Mendoza’s world-renowned winelands, the epic landscapes of Patagonia to thundering Iguazú Falls.

10-days Wings Over Alaska

Cruise Prince William Sound past majestic whales and icy glaciers; enjoy helicopter adventures over untouched Alaskan wilderness; revel in the regal bears of Katmai National Park; stay in luxury lodges in Denali; and go dogsledding on pristine icefields.
