Secrets of Southern Brazil

16 days from £3738pp

Private Journey


Brazil is a huge country, with a variety of landscapes and cultures to match. It’s a melting pot for immigrants from many nations, but each region has its own characteristics and traditions. The far south, where many families trace their roots to German and Italian roots, is less visited than more exotic areas but has its own unique attractions: mountains divine for hikers, superb beaches, and the country’s major highlight, Iguazú Falls.
