Adventure, discovery, nature and fun

A wonderful combination of cultural activities and exploring the wild. Get backstage at the carnival, float down a river alongside colourful fish, gaze in awe of the falls, try your hand at piranha fishing and learn to dance like a local.

Begin in Rio de Janerio where you will visit the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue and head to the summit of Sugarloaf Mountain, take a family walk through the forest and get involved backstage in the carnival (no matter what time of year you visit).

Continue your adventure to Iguazu Falls where the Brazillian side offers panoramic views of the Falls and visit the Bird park, where we can see several bird species up close, You will also visit the Argentinan side of the falls where you can get closer to these magnificent sheets of water.

Your next stop will be at Pantanal & Bonito, a combination that puts together beautiful landscapes, lots of wildlife, and crystal water rivers that you will float in. Here you can try nature walks, climb tall viewing towers, try horseback riding or even have a go at piranha fishing.

For a historical and relaxing ending, continue on towards Salvador. Here you will feel the energy from the people singing, dancing and playing capoeira all around the city - you'll even take a dance or percussion lesson yourself.

Finally, head to Praia do Forte, with its beautiful white sand beaches, coconut trees and crystal clear water, reefs and colourful shoals. Take the opportunity to relax and enjoy the warmth of the Brazilian coast.
