banner, igazu falls contest


“Poor Niagara.” Those were Eleanor Roosevelt’s words when she first saw Iguazu Falls. It’s a perfectly understandable reaction to this natural wonder that runs 1.7 miles, and is 30% taller than Niagara. It’s one of those places you really have to see for yourself, and now you can. LAN Airlines is giving away two roundtrip tickets to Iguazu Falls. 

The falls straddle Argentina and Brazil, and each side provides views that are more spectacular than the other. You can take a boat ride to the foot of the falls, or stay significantly drier with a helicopter tour. However you see them, Iguazu Falls will leave an impression you’ll never forget. Enter now.

Looking for great value accommodation for your next European trip?

Avoid single supplements. 60% of our accommodation is in single rooms! offers a unique opportunity for independent travelers to stay in university residences when students vacate during the holidays.

Forget grungy student accommodation – although rooms can be basic, many have en-suite facilities and are often within historic buildings in city centre locations!

You could be staying in an Oxford college, enjoying a drink in the bar and dining in the Great Hall where parts of Harry Potter were filmed. Alternatively, try our Cambridge accommodation; stay in colleges frequented by alumni such as Darwin, Wordsworth or Prince Charles.

As well as UK accommodation, we feature university residences from just 40 Euros in many European cities, including Madrid, Rome and Barcelona.

Join Aurora Expeditions for the adventure of a lifetime!

For over 20 years Aurora Expeditions have been taking small groups of like-minded travellers to Antarctica. Carrying a maximum of 54 passengers, their ice-strengthened vessel Polar Pioneer is ideally suited for small groups.

Less people also means more solitude and greater flexibility if ice or weather dictate a schedule change. And because we have less people to ferry ashore, we often make more landings.

Whether you chose to join the guided wildlife walks, take part in photography workshops, or camp on the ice overnight, there were always plenty of like-minded people to share the experience with.

Aurora offers a NO SINGLE SUPPLEMENT option for those travellers willing to share their cabin. The company’s cabin-sharing service is the easy way to find a cabin mate of the same gender – and even if a suitable cabin mate can’t be found, you’ll still only pay the standard twin-share rate.

SPECIAL OFFER: Solo travellers will save an additional 15% off the price of selected Antarctica voyages this season.
