Overview & Highlights

Discover Brazil’s astonishing natural landscapes and vibrant capital on this family-friendly adventure. Explore the sparkling bays of colourful Rio de Janeiro, the thunderous Iguazú Falls and secretive wildlife in the lush Amazon rainforest, before winding down on the paradise beaches of Praia do Forte.

  • Guided tour to the Sugar Loaf mountain
  • Jeep tour to Corcovado Mountain and Christ the Redeemer Statue, Rio de Janeiro
  • Visit to the Bird Park at Iguazú
  • The Brazilian and Argentine sides of the Iguazú Falls
  • Macuco boat safari
  • Guided excursions and activities in the Amazon jungle

Visit lively Rio de Janeiro, with mountains and jungle in the heart of the city.  Stroll along the beaches, whizz up the Sugar Loaf in a cable car and climb Corcovado mountain in an open-topped jeep. Thrill to the power of the Iguazú Falls, which crash over cliffs through tropical jungle filled with toucans and monkeys, exploring by boat and on foot. The exuberance of the Amazon jungle will not fail to impress: everything is on a huge scale, from towering trees sheltering monkeys, armies of soldier ants and electric blue butterflies.

The holiday ends with a few days on the coast with some of Brazil's best beaches. Praia do Forte is a relaxed former fishing village, while your eco-resort has something for all the family, from educational activities to horse-riding and snorkelling. There’s a turtle preservation project there too.
