Overview & Highlights

The top highlights of Brazil: in Rio de Janeiro, Corcovado and Sugar Loaf mountains; fly to Iguazú Falls and then on to explore the Amazon rainforest. Continue to exotic, African-influenced Salvador before spending time on the beach in Praia do Forte.

This highlights holiday aims to show off the country at its best - Rio de Janeiro, a sensual city full of fun; Iguazú Falls, among the world’s most impressive cataracts; the wildlife jungles of the Amazon; Salvador,  the pulsating African heart of the country; and the sweeping palm-fringed beaches of Praia do Forte.

Each region of Brazil has its own traditions, arts and music, its own culinary specialities and its own natural wonders. The varied landscapes and palm-shaded beaches are gorgeous, while the multifarious cultural influences of Brazil's indigenous population, migrants from Europe, Portugal's African colonies, Japan and the Lebanon, are everywhere to be seen on this holiday to the absolute top sights.

Our Expert's Opinion

As our signature holiday to Brazil, we have crafted this itinerary to encompass all of the country's classic highlights in under two weeks. From the vibrant and buzzing city of Rio to the thundering magnificence of Iguazú Falls and a boat trip through the Amazon, this holiday has everything you would want from a first-time trip to Brazil. There is so much to see in Brazil, but as you are flying out of Salvador, you will feel as though you have experienced much of what this vast country has to offer.
