Rio de Janeiro
Enjoy a day at leisure before we make our way to a local beachfront restaurant for dinner this evening.
Rio de Janeiro
Our exploration of Rio de Janeiro begins with an exciting journey through the Tijuca Forest on a cog-train, up the 748m-high Corcovado Mountain to the magnificent Christ the Redeemer. Our tour then continues with a two-staged cable car ascent up Sugarloaf Mountain, and then back along the famous seafront to the many attractions of the downtown area.
Rio de Janeiro - Iguazu Falls
Fly west to Iguazu Falls, were three countries meet - Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay. Our destination airport is in Argentina and we visit the Argentinean side of the falls first today. After crossing back into Brazil and Foz do Iguaçu, we check in to the Belmond Hotel das Cataratas (5T).
Visiting the Brazilian side of the falls, we take a walk along 1500m of footpaths that follow the cascades to the boardwalk that leads us to the bottom of Devil’s Throat. The tallest of the 275 waterfalls that span this 2.7km wide phenomenon, the 80m drop (twice the height of Niagara) creates a permanent mist and an impressive sound.
