7 days as part of a tailor-made holiday

You are likely to witness capoeira on a beach or street pavement on a trip to north-east Brazil and in particularly the Afro-Brazilian state of Bahia. Two opponents spin and kick gracefully to the rhythms of drums and twang of a simple string instrument called a berimbau. Capoeira originated in Africa and slaves disguised the martial art from their owners by toning it down through dance and music. It has now become a vibrant component of Brazilian culture and increasingly popular worldwide.

This trip takes you to the cultural heart of capoeira - the colonial quarter of Pelourinho in colourful Salvador. During your stay, take private classes at a local capoeira school, learn more about Afro-Brazilian history and get to know one of the most fascinating cities in Brazil.
