Overview & Highlights
The focus here is a visit to the Amazon, where from a comfortable lodge you set out to view wildlife, huge vine-throttled trees and learn about tribal traditions. You stay in family friendly hotels at Iguazú Falls and on the palm-fringed northeast coast.
- Guided tour to the Sugar Loaf mountain
- Jeep tour to Corcovado Mountain and Christ the Redeemer Statue, Rio de Janeiro
- Visit to the Bird Park at Iguazú
- The Brazilian and Argentine sides of the Iguazú Falls
- Macuco boat safari
- Guided excursions and activities in the Amazon jungle
Visit lively Rio de Janeiro, with mountains and jungle in the heart of the city. Stroll along the beaches, whizz up the Sugar Loaf in a cable car and climb Corcovado mountain in an open-topped jeep. Thrill to the power of the Iguazú Falls, which crash over cliffs through tropical jungle filled with toucans and monkeys, exploring by boat and on foot. The exuberance of the Amazon jungle will not fail to impress: everything is on a huge scale, from towering trees sheltering monkeys, armies of soldier ants and electric blue butterflies.
The holiday ends with a few days on the coast with some of Brazil's best beaches. Praia do Forte is a relaxed former fishing village, while your eco-resort has something for all the family, from educational activities to horse-riding and snorkelling. There’s a turtle preservation project there too.
