Overview & Highlights

This varied escorted group journey begins in the exotic bay-side city of Rio de Janeiro and continues to the quaint colonial port Paraty, before moving to the wildlife-brimming swamps and pastures of the Pantanal and Iguazú Falls.

  • Rio: city tour, Sugar Loaf mountain and Corcovado mountain
  • Paraty: join a schooner cruise among the bays and islands
  • Foz do Iguaçu: Excursions to both sides of the falls
  • Pantanal: 3 day full programme of excursions on foot, horseback and by boat or road

Brazil has an exotic variety of wild life thriving in spectacular natural settings. This journey takes you to a selection of these remarkable places. 

The trip begins in Rio de Janeiro, an imposing city clinging to forested mountains and the shoreline of the Atlantic Ocean. From here, head to Paraty, a colonial waterfront town with sun-kissed tropical islands just a short boat ride away. Head west to view the roaring waters of the Iguazú Falls, where a foaming torrent pours over 275 separate cataracts and walkways lead you through subtropical forest to stunning view points.

Next stop is the Pantanal wetlands, Latin America's wilderness safari park, and a wonderful place to observe thousands of aquatic, forest and grassland birds as well as a host of  exotic mammals, before you head back to Rio for one last caipirinha cocktail and a stroll along Copacabana beach.

What our clients say

97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.

An excellent holiday which met our wish to revisit some parts of Brazil and explore new areas; Pantanal was a real discovery and better for seeing wildlife than Manaus.
