Discover the uniqueness of Brazil

Explore Brazil, a country that is unusually blessed. Five thousand miles of coastline – some of it packed with cafes and partygoers, but long stretches blissfully empty. Rainforests and wetlands teem with exotic critters. Some of the oldest cities and civic architecture in the New World (and one of the newest cities in the entire world) are here. Brazilian restaurants offer regional cuisines at the highest standards.

Music lovers could make Brazil a lifetime study. And let’s not forget a little thing called Carnival. And about those Brazilians, no one could accuse them of worshipping efficiency. They’d much rather get along than get things done; the goal is, above all, harmony. Harmony can mean an entire Sunday spent watching football, or afternoons at the beach. But above all, harmony means never taking anything all that seriously. And at this, Brazilians excel.

To explore some of the uniqueness of Brazil, the tour starts in Rio de Janeiro with the famous Christ the Redeemer and Sugarloaf Mountain. It continues with a visit of the Iguassu Falls and a stay in a lodge in the Amazon Jungle. After exploring the jungle in all its beauty, the tour continues to historic Salvador.
