Value Iguazú Falls: Buenos Aires to Rio

10 days from £1447pp

Private Journey



4 days from £799pp

Head along the Atlantic coast from Rio, passing lagoons and wild, surf-lashed beaches to the chic beach village of Búzios. The low-key, but upmarket, European-style resort is renowned for art shops and fine dining. Here a peninsula of cliffs and low hills is dimpled with little coves and speckled with boutique-style hotels.

Day 1: Transfer by road (2.5-3hrs) from Rio de Janeiro to Búzios, crossing the spectacular 12km Niterói Bridge over Guanabara Bay. Once a tiny fishing village, Armação dos Búzios is now one of Brazil's most sought-after and lively beach resorts. Secluded beaches in craggy bays and nearby tropical islands can be reached by schooners. The friendly, small boutique hotel Casas Brancas is perched on a bluff with fine views over the bay.

Days 2,3: The centre of Búzios is just a short walk away and has a good selection of restaurants, bars (some with live music) and boutiques. The pousada itself is a lovely place in which to relax. Facilities include a small pool, spa, sea-front restaurant and sun terrace shaded by white drapes. The nearest beach is about 10 mins’ walk away.

Day 4: By road back to Rio de Janeiro to continue your holiday or to the city’s airport for your international flight.

Ilha Grande

Ilha Grande

4 days from £625pp

A couple of hours’ drive from Rio de Janeiro along the Atlantic shoreline, the hills and cliffs become cloaked in velvety green tropical forest. Opposite this verdant landscape is the island called Ilha Grande, formerly housing a notorious prison and even now only lightly touched by tourism. It is a gorgeous, car-free place, where the tiny natural beaches and forest trails attract lovers of tranquillity.

Day 1:Transfer (5hrs) by road and boat to Ilha Grande and your hotel, Pousada Naturalia, in its secluded setting within rainforest. The laid-back village of Abraão, with its modest tourist facilities is a short walk from the pousada, partly along the beach.

Days 2,3:Explore the island or swim and relax on the beaches. Crystal clear, aquamarine and jade waters lap at palm-fringed sands on the north side, while sweeping, white-sand beaches and rougher seas characterise the south.

Day 4: Transfer by road back to Rio de Janeiro to continue your holiday or to connect with your international flight.

UK clients arrive home the following day.

Breakfast daily.
