At a glance

This holiday to Brazil has been carefully put together to make the most of your family’s time in Brazil. With only two internal flights, travel is kept to a minimum whilst you still see and do a lot during your holiday time.

Begin at the beach town of Buzios, where you can unwind on one of the beautiful tropical beaches in the area, and enjoy many of the activities on offer for entertainment. Next stop are the stunning, thundering Iguassu Falls, followed by a couple of nights just across the border to see the fascinating diversity of the Argentine Missiones rainforest.

Your final destination is Rio, where you can be guided around the city by a local carioca and relax on the beaches of Copacabana or Ipanema, before flying home.

Spend your time relaxing and enjoying the beautiful seaside town of Buzios. Famous for being 'discovered' in the 1960s by Bridgette Bardot, Buzios is no longer the sleepy fishing village it once was, with an abundance of restaurants, bars, boutique shops and hotels. Thankfully, development hasn't been too drastic, and the town still retains much of its charm, often being referred to as the Brazilian Saint Tropez. You'll have our guide to the best restaurants and beaches so you can make the most of your time here.

Gran Aventura by Boat Gran Aventura by Boat

Going up river in these boats specially prepared to get to the base of Iguassu Falls and to be able to admire and feel them from up close. Whirlpools, waves and currents provoked by the Falls make this an unmissable part of any visit to the park.

Your guide will bring you to the starting point where large trucks specially adapted to this tour will take you and the other visitors to explore six kilometres in the humid subtropical forest as far as the banks of the Iguazu River, downstream from the Falls. From here you will board special high powered Zodiac boats that will take you, at high speed, to enjoy one of the most unforgettable experiences in the region: the direct and wet contact with the mighty Iguassu Falls. After this incredible trip participants will get off the boat at the base of the Falls, on catwalk that connects to the lower visitation circuit of the Falls. This tour can be started in the reverse direction, from this catwalk downwards ending with the jungle truck ride.

Visit Christ the Redeemer on Corcovado mountain Visit Christ the Redeemer on Corcovado mountain

Christ the Redeemer statue is Rio’s most famous attraction with his arms stretched out, looking out to bless the entire city. At 710 metres (2,330 feet) above the centre on the Corcovado hill, the statue is surrounded by wide, open terraces from where you get unbeatable vistas of the city's impressive littoral, the southern neighbourhoods of Copacabana and Ipanema, the Lagoon, the Sugar Loaf and the town of Niterói.

Visit the neighbourhood of Santa Teresa Visit the neighbourhood of Santa Teresa

The faded grandeur of this part of the city, often referred to as the Montmartre of Rio, set into the hills close to the centre of town, still retains a rich cultural atmosphere of art, music and history. Mansions line the narrow streets struggling with the encroaching vegetation and incline, and is still home to many painters cafes and artists studios. You can stop for a drink or lunch at one of the many charming restaurants, bistros and cafes that populate Santa Teresa’s lively streets. Your guide will also take you to the Ruins Park, a cultural centre in the remains of a 19th century house which has a Belvedere that commands some of the best views over Rio.

Your guide will escort you through the narrow 19th century streets at your required pace, stopping at the magnificent Baroque churches and the ruins of the old port from where most of Brazil’s gold left for its long journey to Europe. You will also see many other culturally interesting and historical attractions that illustrate the city’s rich and varied heritage.

Visit Sugar Loaf mountain Visit Sugar Loaf mountain

This massive granite rock, 396 metres tall, is one of the city’s most emblematic landmarks, adorning many a postcard. You will take the cable car with your guide from the Guanabara Bay entrance in the Urca district. At the zenith the view of Rio and its neighbourhoods sprawled over bays, coves, and appearing from dense green hillsides is unrivalled and quite spectacular.
