Classic Brazil Itinerary
Journey to South America and make tracks to Brazil. Visit Rio de Janeiro, marvel at Iguazu Falls and tour the Pantanal Wetlands. Discover the most adventurous places to visit in Brazil.
Day 1 Rio de Janeiro
A sweltering city of white sand beaches, pulsating samba rhythms and lush mountain backdrops, Rio is bewitching. Get your bearings on a guided orientation walk, then join the flocks of tanned Cariocas (residents of Rio de Janeiro) headed to the beach for swimming, sunbathing, football playing or posing.
ACCOM: Hotel - 1
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 cascades, 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.

Days 4-5 Bonito
There's a lot to live up to with a name that translates to 'beautiful', but Bonito is more than just a pretty face. Head underground to explore the area's vast cave system or dive into the cool river waters to snorkel among schools of colourful fish.

Days 6-7 Pantanal
Brazil's Pantanal plain is the world's largest wetland area and home to a vast array of wildlife. Monkeys, anacondas, lizards and otters all reside here, so don't pass up the opportunity for some wildlife-spotting. Head out for some birdwatching and a tour of the bountiful wetlands, then spend the night bedded down in a hammock among the sounds of the surrounding jungle.
ACCOM: Hammock - 2
Days 8-9 Rio de Janeiro
Return to raucous Rio de Janeiro for a final night on the town. Head out into Brazil's most electrifying city and toast the conclusion of this Brazilian adventure with some street food snacks and a fresh caipirinha. Then perhaps bust some moves in a hot and heady dance hall.
