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!

Iguazu Falls

The awe-inspiring Iguazu Falls, consisting of 275 cascades, sits on the border between Brazil and Argentina and is truly one of the most breathtaking sights in the world. The streams of water that tumble down the cliff sides are powerful and create heavy jet sprays, giving the entire area a misty and mysterious look. The region surrounding the falls is covered in thick rainforest, inhabited by all kinds of exotic wildlife, including ocelots and caymans.

Rio de Janeiro
