Day 1  Arrive in Rio de Janeiro
There really is nowhere quite like Rio de Janeiro. With its unmistakable mountain backdrop and famously glamorous beaches, party atmosphere and legendary nightlife, art scene and no shortage of surrounding natural wonders nearby – all guarded over by the city’s Christ The Redeemer statue – Rio certainly provides one of those unique travel experiences that can’t really compare with anywhere else. So, arrive in Rio de Janeiro and check in to your accommodation for tonight – Belmond Copacaba...
Day 2  Rio de Janeiro
This full day in Rio de Janeiro begins with a very special sunrise view, gazing out over the incredible cityscape from Mt Corcovado, on top of which the famous Christ The Redeemer statue stands. Afterwards, swoop over to Sugar Loaf Mountain for yet more stunning vistas from a helicopter, the best (and most exclusive) way to take in all of Rio, its sapphire waters and its forest-clad peaks. Then, come evening, party with the locals as you experience the world’s most famous festival city with...
Day 3-4  Iguazu Falls
Leave Rio behind and fly south to Iguazu Falls on the border with Argentina, where you’ll spend two days soaking up the majesty of this awe-inspiring UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore this collection of 275 falls by taking a zodiac boat ride up to the cascading water, flying above it all on a helicopter or enjoying the view from a privileged lookout point. That’s not all though. You can also delve into the surrounding Atlantic rainforest by hiking, driving or golf-carting along the Poco P...
Day 5-6  Pantanal
From one UNESCO site to another, you’ll travel deep in to the heart of Brazil to reach the Pantanal Wetlands. This huge expanse makes up the largest tropical marshlands anywhere in the world, home to 650 bird species as well as Jaguars, Giant Otters, Capybaras and Caimans, who thrive in the plains, forests, lakes and rivers of the Pantanal. Head out on safaris by 4WD, canoe and even on horseback to spot the amazing flora and fauna of the Pantanal. Relish views of the wide, open plains as y...
Day 7  Manaus and the Amazon
On day 7, touch down in Manaus in the Brazilian Amazon and step aboard a luxury private yacht. You’ll spend a night on this sleek cruise vessel while sailing down the Rio Negro, though there’ll be plenty of time to explore the pristine jungle beforehand, spying Pink River Dolphins and exotic birdlife, and meeting local tribespeople of the Amazon. As the sun begins to set, cocktails will be served on the outdoor deck, where you can scan the river for Alligators. Accommodation: M/Y Zenith, M/...
Day 8-10  Manaus and the Amazon
After an exciting night spent on the Rio Negro, you’ll then be taken to Anavilhanas Jungle Lodge for two nights of yet more Amazon exploration. Delve in to the Anavilhanas National Park, enjoying nature hikes and canoe safaris, and unwind in this boutique jungle hideaway as you go for dips in the riverfront pool, swing in a hammock with a book in hand, and toast your trip with a caipirinha or two. Accommodation: Anavilhanas Jungle Lodge
Day 11  Manaus and the Amazon
Depart Anavilhanas Jungle Lodge and make for Manaus one last time, travelling by waterplane to reach Villa Amazonia. One of the highlights of our stay in Manaus will be visiting the Amazon Theatre (or the Manaus Opera House), an exquisite, Renaissance-style building constructed using materials sourced from Europe; it’s the last thing you expect to see in the middle of the Amazon Rainforest! Accommodation: Villa Amazonia
Day 12-14  Salvador da Bahia
Fly east to the Atlantic Coast and Brazil’s former capital city, Salvador da Bahia, a bustling hub for Afro-Brazilian culture and beautiful colonial architecture. There are many ways you can immerse yourself in to life in Salvador. Stroll through the cobbled streets and picturesque plazas of Pelourinho, the city’s UNESCO-stamped Old Town, on a guided walking tour to learn more about how the Portuguese erected such resplendent architecture, including its ornate churches. You can also soak u...
Day 15-17  Trancoso
After enjoying a taste of the Atlantic in Salvador, then head further down the coast to charming Trancoso, a place of sun-kissed beaches, azure seas and rich rainforest, with the sleek Fasano Trancoso as your luxurious base. Spend the next few days beach hopping on an exclusive boat tour, go stand-up paddle boarding down the Trancoso River, or hiking through Pau Brasil National Park which is teeming with exotic plantlife, 225 bird species, Tapir Monkeys and even Pumas. Accommodation: Fasano...
Day 18  Rio de Janeiro
View Accommodation
As your Brazilian journey draws to a close, the last stop on this tour will be Rio de Janeiro, for a little downtime, a special dinner and one last chance to samba.
