With dense Amazonian forests and powdery white sandy beaches, colonial towns and buzzing cities alive with the sounds of samba, Brazil is a destination that captivates.
Our Brazil tours will give you a taste of this unique South American country, as well as a number of other South American hotspots. Join us as we explore Rio de Janeiro. We’ll stop to take in the breathtaking views from Corcovado and Sugarloaf Mountains and marvel at the iconic Christ the Redeemer. We’ll feast in a traditional churrascaria and sip and zingy Caipirinhas. And there will still be time to feel the sand between your toes on Ipanema and Copacabana beaches.
Our holidays to Brazil are two very different, but equally epic, adventures. 'Grand Tour of South America' combines Brazil with time in Peru, Chile and Argentina, giving you the chance to explore Machu Picchu, the Argentinean Lake District and Iguazu Falls en route to Rio. 'Antarctica Expedition Cruise' begins with a whirlwind week discovering Rio de Janeiro, Iguazu Falls and Buenos Aires, before you board your ship ready for an incredible cruise to Antarctica.
Rio de Janeiro
One of the most fascinating world wonders can be found in the city of Rio de Janeiro, standing at 38m high, you will certainly be able to see it wherever you go. The Christ the Redeemer statue is one of the New Seven Wonders, a list that also boasts the likes of Machu Picchu in Peru and India's Taj Mahal. The breathtaking structure on top of the Corcovado Mountain is one of the most popular Catholic symbols in the world. As well as the Corcovado peak, the city is also home to Sugarloaf Mountain, which majestically rises over the harbour filled with yachts.
The beaches in Rio de Janeiro are just as famous and you will likely spot groups of friends playing volleyball or practicing the sport the country is particularly famous for - football. You might even unknowingly catch a glimpse of the next Ronaldo or Pele! Glistening skyscrapers line the stretches of sand, along with 17th-century churches, showcasing how the city is one of contrasts.
While Brazil is perhaps most famous for its Christ the Redeemer statue and the opulent and jaw-dropping Rio Carnival complete with barely-there samba costumes, it should not be forgotten that the South American country is home to a variety of wildlife.
The Brazilian side of the Iguazu Falls - made up of 275 waterfalls spanning across the border with Argentina - is a fantastic place to spot creatures native to the country. Indeed, some the animals that call Brazil home include hummingbirds, hawks, eagles, monkeys, sea turtles, jaguars and the giant armadillo. A system of national parks is in place in the country, such as the Tijuca National Park, an 8,000 acre rainforest containing waterfalls, plenty of wildlife and plants.
