Classic Brazil Itinerary
Day 1 Rio de Janeiro
Travel to Brazil and hit the coast to reach Rio De Janeiro. Between the white sand beaches, the rhythm of samba and the lush mountain hideaways, Rio is bewitching. Get acquainted with the sights and learn why locals say, 'God made the world in six days, the seventh he devoted to Rio'. The beach is the perfect place for people-watching. Join the flocks of tanned Cariocas (residents of Rio de Janeiro) that head to the beach to swim, sunbathe, play games or pose.
Days 2-3 Iguazu Falls
Stretching almost 3 km in length, the incredible power of Brazil's Iguazu Falls will take your breath away. Spend two days exploring both the Argentinean and Brazilian sides of the falls, admiring their sheer scale and vast panoramic splendour. Be prepared to get wet as the prolific torrents of water gushing through Iguazu don't discriminate.
ACCOM: Overnight bus - 1
Day 4 Bonito
ACCOM: Hotel - 1
Days 5-6 Pantanal/Campo Grande
Brazil's Pantanal plain is the world's largest wetland area and home to a vast array of wildlife including monkeys, anacondas, lizards and otters. This sanctuary hosts a diverse range of creatures so there's plenty of opportunity to view the many different species that coexist here. Enjoy birdwatching, a tour of the area and exploring the bountiful wetlands. Spend the night sleeping in a hammock - an authentic experience to remember.
ACCOM: Hammock - 2
Days 7-8 Rio de Janeiro
Return to raucous Rio de Janeiro for a final night on the town. Head out into Brazil's electric city and toast the adventure with a fresh caipirinha, by busting a move in a hot and heady dance hall or through sampling street food delights. Why not take the hedonistic approach and indulge in all three? Rio is more than happy to oblige!
