A World of Discovery

Brazil Tours

The sprawling country of Brazil has captivated travellers for centuries. Powdery white sand beaches stretch for more than 7000km along palm tree lined coast, fronting the deep blue Atlantic with many pristine colonial towns to be discovered along the way. Add to this vibrant and dynamic cities, diverse ecosystems and magnificent waterfalls and you have the perfect holiday destination.

Our tour of Brazil over the main highlights from Brazil's capital, Rio de Janeiro, Pantanal National Park and the magnificent Iguazu Falls. Most of our tours are multi-country itineraries visiting other countries in South America on the same tour. Every year Rio de Janeiro is home to the legendary Rio Carnival, when thousands of people flock to the city to celebrate and we offer special tours over this time as well.

Rio Carnival
The mother of all street parties!

A major highlight of the carnival is the spectacular Samba Parade where different samba schools battle it out to win the hearts and minds of the audience and the judges. Fabulous floats cruise along whilst dancers dressed in sensational costumes samba their way through the streets to the infectious rhythm of the percussion bands. Rio Carnival occurs on the weekend before Shrove Tuesday/Ash Wednesday each year with the following forthcoming dates for 2016 and 2017: 5 - 9 February 2016 and 24 - 28 February 2017..

Highlights of our Brazil Tours

City dwellers will feel right at home in Brazil's capital of Rio de Janeiro, with its historic buildings and the famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema, whilst the fast growing metropolis of Sao Paulo will keep you busy for days. History buffs will enjoy wandering the cobblestone streets of Parati, an old colonial pirate town. Beyond Brazil's cities, the vast wetlands of the Pantanal National Park are home to amazing wildlife. And of course, one of Brazil's main draw cards are the mighty Iguazu Falls that stretch for over one and a half miles with 275 separate falls!
