Rio Carnival Holiday

 

Private Journey

 

Carnival 2018 begins on 9th February. Come to Rio and join the party.

Street bands and parties, parades, fancy-dress balls, impromptu and planned concerts and gatherings spring up all over Rio during five days of Carnival, the world's biggest party. The two-day parade of Samba Schools, in the purpose-built sambodromo, is the ultimate highlight, where the costumes, dancing and music of the competing schools whips the audience into a frenzy. We accompany you to year seats in the well positioned Sector 9 and see you back to your hotel safely at the end.

This good value holiday includes the price of the tickets to the parade as well as a guided excursion to the Christ statue on the top of Corcovado mountain. There's free time to enjoy the fun in the city independently. When the excitement is abruptly extinguished on Ash Wednesday you travel along the coast to the chic beach resort Búzios for a couple of days to relax and recover on a beautiful Atlantic Ocean bay.

This holiday is the perfect way to experience one of the biggest and most vibrant parties in the world. By immersing yourself in street blocos and witnessing the enormity of the parade at the Sambódromo you get an authentic insight into the colour and rhythm of Carnival. We’ve included a few days in the laid-back, upmarket beach resort of Búzios at the end of this trip so that you have a chance to relax and put your feet up after your days of partying in Rio.
