See the sights of South America in this topsy-turvy round the world flight route. Start in Santiago, Chile, home to some fabulous mountain views. Make your own way to Lima, Peru and watch the sun rise over Machu Picchu. From here you can make your way through Latin America to Mexico, via Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia – or fly direct to Los Angeles before heading north to neighbouring Canada. It might be chilly but don’t let that stop you! You’ll feel right at home in Vancouver and you’re just a short trip to the Canadian Rockies and some of the best ski resorts in the world. Keep the adventure alive on the way home with a stopover in Auckland, NZ.
