Rio Carnaval Package Basix SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Welcome to Rio. Feel the air bristle with electricity and excitement as the city gets ready for the world’s biggest party!
Today is free for you to rest up in preparation for a big week! Explore the surrounding area in the lovely Flamengo district, head to the beach, or people-watch over a coffee in a nearby cafe.
Take the train up to the Christ the Redeemer statue for stunning 360 degree views over Rio. Then get ready for the first big night of action at the Sambadrome! Party with 70,000 others as Brazil's top samba schools battle it out in a parade of colour, music and flamboyancy. There is nothing like the atmosphere here – be prepared for an awesome night!
Opt to visit the Morrinho community favela project. Then perhaps gear up for night two at the Sambadrome - this time be part of it all! Dress up, dance, sweat, and parade among the colour, sound and magic of Carnival – a never to be forgotten experience.
Sleep in after a fabulous night and perhaps ease into the day lazing on Copacabana Beach. Still got some party left in you? It’s time to experience a wild Carnival Ball – glitter mandatory!
Take the opportunity to see another side of Rio on a Colonial Tour and learn about the city's colourful heritage. As the sun sets, cruise around Guanabara Bay and let the beauty of Rio sink in from the water. Raise a glass with new friends and toast this once in a lifetime adventure.
