⛷️ Winter in July

It’s winter in South America and (our) summer is Brazil’s coldest season — but not bring-a-jacket cold. Expect temperate days in the 60s-70s, perfect for beaching, hiking + exploring cities. As for Chile: Bring that jacket because it’s the height of Chile’s ski season. Book a flight to:

  • Brazil: Belo Horizonte, Recife, Fortaleza, São Paulo, Brasília
  • Chile: Santiago

🏔️ Hiking, gardens, and breezy beaches

See Canada at its best in summer, when days are long and temperatures pleasant. Explore Vancouver’s famous Butchart Gardens, revel in Halifax’s breezy beaches, savor Quebec City’s European-like streets + take a hike, well, just about anywhere. Book a flight to:

  • Vancouver
  • Halifax
  • Toronto
  • Quebec City
