Tours in Brazil

Brazil is a country of powerful contrasts, from its world-famous Carnival and colourful clash of cultures to its awe-inspiring jungles, slinky jaguars and perhaps the most dramatic waterfalls in the world. Brazil holidays invariably take in Rio de Janeiro, but the great falls of Iguazu, the Pantanal wetlands, and the mighty Amazon River are really where it’s at…

There’s wonderful wildlife to watch in the wetlands; mountains to conquer around Sertão; and then there’s the Amazon. Roughly the size of Western Europe, it’s vast. Here you can sleep in a rainforest lodge, or float along on a classic double-decked wooden Amazon riverboat looking out for pink dolphins as you go. Or cycle along the Costa Verde, stopping every now and then for a well-earned caipirinha on the beach.
