Iguazu Falls to Rio

This holiday is also offered in reverse. Start at the falls and end in Rio!

Day 1

Welcome to Brazil! Upon arrival at Rio Airport you'll be met and transferred to our joining hotel. The first day of your tour is simply an arrival day with no pre-organised activities. In order to allow time to relax and see some of the sights you may wish to add pre tour accommodation. A welcome meeting will be held later this evening.

Perhaps explore this colourful Brazilian city by taking a cable car up Sugar Loaf Mountain and Corcovado, the famous statue of Christ, for great city views. Or soak up the sun on the legendary beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. For those who wish to see more of Rio why not book pre accommodation and arrive a little earlier.
Overnight: Rio De Janeiro

Days 2-3

Rio de Janeiro - Paraty. Leaving Rio we follow the stunning coastline south to the colonial town of Parati, an old pirate town with streets made of stone slabs designed to let the tide wash over and clean them. A virtual museum within a tropical paradise, the town of Paraty is home to one of the finest collections of classical 18th century Portuguese colonial buildings. It is also known for its local festivals on Catholic holy dates. Enjoy free time to explore the nearby beaches and local bohemian markets or opt for a full day boat cruise around the bay where you can spend time swimming or simply relaxing on the deck while enjoying a fresh seafood lunch.
Overnight: Paraty  |  Breakfast x 2

Days 4-5

Parati - Sao Paulo. Our next stop is the sprawling metropolis of Sao Paulo, the world’s fastest growing city with a population of 19 million. The cultural capital of Brazil offers much in the way of attractions including first-rate museums, nightly concerts, experimental theatre and dance.

Here we can enjoy an optional visit to a snake farm and the Latin American Exhibition Centre, designed by famous architect Oscar Niemeyer. Later perhaps relax with some sushi in the Japanese quarter. Surprisingly, Sao Paulo has the largest population of Japanese outside of Japan. For party-goers, the nightclubs and bars of the city are among the best of South America.
Overnight: Sao Paulo  |  Breakfast x 2

Day 6

Sao Paulo - Curitiba. Today we arrive at the university town of Curitiba, an attractive and exceptionally well-planned city with many pleasant squares and parks made to resemble French gardens. It is one of the most environmentally friendly cities in Brazil with between 60-70% of its paper, metal and plastic recycled. Even the city’s previous garbage dump has been transformed into botanical gardens! In Curitiba you have the option of taking a scenic train trip to the coast or see the principal tourist attractions of the city on the hop-on hop-off bus.
Overnight: Curitiba

Day 7

Curitiba - Foz do Iguacu. After spending the day in Curitiba we take an overnight bus journey through the rolling hills of Southern Brazil and brings us to Foz do Iguacu, our base for visiting the famous Iguazu Falls.
Overnight: Overnight Bus

Days 8-9

Arriving into Foz de Iguacu this morning we’ll get to see this impressive waterfall from both the Argentine and Brazilian side. In Brazil, board a speedboat that takes you right under the falls, whilst on the Argentinean side you’ll find the famous ‘Devil’s Throat’. Unlike most other waterfalls that have just one or two cataracts, at Iguazú there are 275 cataracts in a magnificent 3 kilometre long U shape that we will visit from both the Brazil and Argentinean sides.
Overnight: Foz do Iguacu  |  Breakfast x 1

Day 10

Our tour concludes after breakfast. Opt to extend your stay!
