Classic Brazil

Brazil

An 11-day tour that showcases the best of Brazil’s cultural and natural highlights. Start your Brazil holiday in the iconic city of Rio de Janiero. With its dramatic setting of undulating mountains covered in lush greenery to the stark expanses of bare rock; this is perhaps one of the most spectacular backdrops in the world. You have a full day to visit the imposing Christ the Redeemer atop Corcovado Mountain, conical Sugar Loaf Mountain and the famous Copacabana Beach for a magical start to your holiday. A short flight south is the magnificent Iguacu Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. With 275 separate falls over nearly 2 miles of National Park they showcase the meeting of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. The largest of the falls, the Devil's Throat is truly breathtaking. From the Atlantic forest at Iguacu, move onto the lush tropical rainforest of the Amazon. Stay for a night in the sprawling city of Manaus before then moving on for two nights set in an eco-lodge adeep within the Amazon Rainforest to experience the diversity of the flora and fauna in this remote corner of Brazil. Finally, complete your holiday with a stay in the charming, historic city of Salvador. The centre, known as the Pelourinho, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, awash with colourful buildings and cobbled streets. In under two weeks our Classic Brazil itinerary encompasses all the must-do sites in this diverse country.

Rio de Janeiro
Today you are taken on a tour to visit two of Rio de Janeiro's most iconic sights - Corcovado mountain; home to the statue of Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf mountain. Both provide unrivalled views out over the city's spectacular bays, islands, beaches and mountains. To ascend Corcovado mountain, embark the Swiss cogwheel train that climbs up from 15m asl to 670m asl, wending its way through the Tijuca National Forest below. Offering a bird's eye view, the cable car up to Sugar Loaf makes for an exciting journey, with such stunningly beautiful views it is no wonder the city is dubbed "cidade maravilhosa" (marvellous city).
