Private Journey


Brazil is 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 the tropical areas but has its own unique attractions, and a holiday which visits this region alone is very satisfying. The Iguazú Falls are a top sight of course but the railway from the pleasant town Curitiba down to the coast is a feat of engineering, the Serra Geral ranges of rugged mountains will appeal to walkers. Here you find some of the country's loveliest beaches, justifiably lively in in summer with surfers and families.
