Tour Description

Discover three iconic destinations of tropical Brazil on a fascinating 10-day tour.

Start your journey exploring the unforgettable Rio De Janeiro, lazing on some of the world's best beaches, taking in the magnificent views atop the city's nearby Corcovado mountain by the statue of Christ the Redeemer surrounded by the lush environment while spectacular encounters await at every corner of the ancient capital of Brazil.

A short flight away from the carnival city, lies the Iguazu Falls, the largest waterfall system in the world. The tour will take you across the Argentinean border and back to provide an exhaustive experience of this wonder of nature and its incredible surroundings, where wilderness thrives thanks to the mighty waters of the Iguazu River.

Flying to the very heart of the South American continent, your journey will then take you to the lungs of our blue planet, the Amazon rainforest. From the city of Manaus, you will venture into the tropical jungle to encounter some of the world's most fascinating creatures.

From the comfort of your lodge, among the luxuriant environment of the Amazon, your daily activities will include fishing for piranhas, spotting caimans basking in the moonlight, and learning about the ancestral cultures of the jungle.

With another stop in Rio to rest from your 10-day Brazil tour, you will have time to relax and reflect on this life-changing journey through the absolute best places in Brazil before leaving home with lifelong memories and fantastic stories to tell.
