Days 5-7 Iguazu Falls

The series of cataracts comprising the mighty Iguazu Falls, are a breathtaking spectacle to behold. To gain a full appreciation of their size and power, take in the cascades from both the Argentine and Brazilian banks. Or, for the ultimate vantage point, splash out on a helicopter ride over the top.

Days 8-10 Bonito

The ecotourism capital of Brazil awaits at Bonito, where the list of optional activities include hiking scenic forest trails and snorkelling among colourful river fish. For even more exhilarating adventures, why not try caving, horse riding, abseiling or white-water rafting.

Day 14 Brotas

The tiny town of Brotas serves as Brazil's very own adventure sports hub. Why not explore the region's staggering natural wonders, canyoning, white-water rafting, or on a horseback ride.

Days 15-17 Paraty

Sitting between Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, Paraty is one of the world's best preserved Portuguese colonial towns. While away the hours here on a walk along its beautiful secluded beaches, island hopping by boat or scuba diving the depths of its crystal clear waters.
ACCOM: Camping (with facilities) - 3

Days 18-19 Rio de Janeiro

Be prepared for the frivolities of a city that needs very little of an introduction – rollicking Rio. Brazil's former capital is a staggering city that thumps, grooves and grinds around the clock. Get your booty shaking to samba, your body baking on its famous sands, or head up to Christ the Redeemer for a lordly view of earthy splendour.
