Accommodation in Rio de Janeiro

Three nights in Rio de Janeiro Three nights in Rio de Janeiro

Spending your days in this 'Marvellous City', you can explore and enjoy Rio de Janeiro at your leisure. As Brazil's second largest city, it's often mistaken as its capital for the richness of culture found here. Wander the colourful streets, which host the famous annual carnival and take in the breathtaking views from atop the Corcovado Mountain just underneath the shade of Christ the Redeemer, or stroll the famed Copacabana Beach that sets this city apart from any other. With manmade sights of significance, such as the stadium of Maracanã and spectacles of natural beauty like Sugar Loaf Mountain, there's plenty to fill your time and make your stay in Rio de Janeiro one to remember.

Stand-up paddlebarding on the southern beaches Stand-up paddlebarding on the southern beaches

The beaches in Rio are part of what makes this city so popular. On this tour, you'll pass by more than ten different beaches while getting the chance to do stand-up paddleboarding in a beautiful natural reserve.

Far from the centre and other urban suburbs, you'll take a narrow and beautiful road along a preserved area to reach some fantastic beaches. At the end of Barra Beach, you'll find Reserva, Recreio Pontal, Macumba, Prainha and Grumari, which remain almost deserted during the week, except for the surfers that spend all day long enjoying the best waves that the city can offer. Prainha is your first stop and as the name suggests, Prainha means little beach in Portuguese. It's a small beach with big waves and inviting, white sand. Grumari, a long beautiful beach surrounded by the natural landscapes of a protected area and unknown by many people, is the last beach of the route. This beach also has small open-air restaurants that serve fresh seafood, which comes straight from a local fishermen's community.

The final stop will be the Barra de Guaratiba area, where you'll have time for a stand up paddleboarding class across the mangroves of Restinga da Marambaia, a huge natural reserve.

Sunrise picnic on Corcovado Mountain Sunrise picnic on Corcovado Mountain

Before dawn, you'll be driven up Corcovado Mountain - home to the famous Christ statue - for a private picnic breakfast as you watch the sun rise over Rio de Janeiro.

Rio by night Rio by night

Your guide will meet you at your hotel in the evening to take you out for a night on the town. You'll visit the best bars, including Rio Scenarium, for some drinks and light food, as well as live music and dancing.

Paraty walking tour Paraty walking tour

Differing from other colonial cities, Paraty's architecture has lots of character - irregular sidewalks, decorated walls, wrought-iron balconies and freemasonry hark back to the past. Today, Paraty today is a UNESCO site thanks to the fact that 65% of the municipal area is inside the national park of Serra da Bocaina. On this tour, local guides will tell legends and stories of the last century and you'll visit churches (Matriz, Santa Rita, Do Rosário e Das Dores), museums, the House of Culture and other points of interest.
