Brazil

Brazil

A diverse mix of cultures and landscapes

Brazil borders almost every county in South America and is only slightly smaller than the United States. Boasting sun-kissed beaches, spectacular natural wonders and samba rhythms…Brazil never fails to charm and delight its visitors.

Rio de Janeiro is a bustling city with two famous beaches – Ipanema and Copacabana as well as an iconic skyline which is dominated by Sugarloaf mountain and the Christ the Redeemer statue. You can relax on the beach, explore the famous sights and then samba until the sun comes up in this amazing and vibrant part of Brazil. Of course, once a year, it’s also home to what is considered to be the biggest carnival in the world. This is an amazing time to visit as up to 2 million people visit to party and join in and you’ll see spectacular costumes and wondrous floats.

The Iguazu Falls straddle the border between Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay and it’s a memorable sightseeing addition to any visit to Brazil. The forest trails lead you to lookout points where you can take in the beauty of the falls and feel the spray on your face. If you want to get closer, there are many boat trips which will take you to the base of the falls but be prepared to get very wet!

The mighty Amazon covers almost half of Brazil and it is an unmissable area that you absolutely should see. You could stay in Manaus and travel upstream to the magnificent Anavilhanas Archipelago. Take a leisurely river cruise or spend some time exploring the local villages, hiking, fishing or take a night safari to see the nocturnal animals in their natural habitat – truly fascinating!

There’s also Buzios and Paraty on the coast which are home to some fine beaches, Salvador which is rich in historical sights and Pantanal – a vast tropical wetland spanning over 75,000 square miles.

This iconic art deco statue towers over the city of Rio de Janeiro. It stands on a platform, 709m high in Tijuca National Park. The statue itself is 30m high, and can be reached by a railway system climbing up the steep gradient. The base of the statue incorporates a small chapel which is very popular for weddings.
