Family Brazil: Waterfalls, rivers and rainforests

15 days from £3,918pp
 

Private Journey

 
If you are outdoor and nature enthusiasts, this private family adventure will delight. Visit exotic and lively Rio de Janeiro, with mountains and jungle right in the heart of the city. Even the ways you get around are exhilarating: cycle along the beaches, whizz up the Sugar Loaf in a cable car and climb Corcovado mountain in an open-topped jeep. You’ll all thrill to the power of the Iguazú Falls, which crash over cliffs through tropical jungle filled with toucans and monkeys exploring close up by boat and on foot: you’ll get wet! The exuberance of the Amazon jungle will not fail to impress: everything is on a huge scale, from massive towering trees with waist-thick creepers to the 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.

What our experts say

With over 7,000 kilometres of coastline, Brazil offers some of the most breathtaking beaches in all of South America, if not the world. We regularly travel to Rio with our son and daughter to visit our family and there’s no doubt that our number one beach has to be Lopes Mendes on the island of Ilha Grande. Arriving on this beach by boat is like arriving on a deserted island 50 years ago; there is nothing there - no hotels, no bars, no restaurants just beautiful powdery white sands, clear azure sea and a backdrop of mountainous jungle.
