Rio de Janeiro is the heartbeat of Brazil and the first stopping point of your adventure. You will visit the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue overlooking the balmy, sun blessed waters of Guanabara Bay, Ipanema and Copacabana beaches. The best attraction of all however is the soul of the Brazilian people, and this can be enjoyed sipping a caipirinha in the Bohemian district of Lapa or witnessing the mesmerizing spectacle of a carnival samba dance on the ‘sambadromo’. Then venture onward to one of the natural wonders of the world; the cascading Iguazu Falls, straddling the border of Brazil and Argentina. To view these expansive falls from above is truly impressive but in addition we offer the chance to get wet! A boat journey beneath the falls to hear the roar of mother nature and feel the invigorating spray of water across your face is a never to be forgotten moment.

With epic attractions Rio de Janeiro can be visited all year around. The summer months of January – March are when Brazilian takes their vacations, so expect the city’s hotels and beaches to be full. Many visitors avoid the summer months due to limited hotel availability and increased hotel rates. For this vacation package it is best to avoid the dates of Rio Carnival, which is held every year before Lent (see dates below). Iguazu Falls can be visited all year around, but as it is located in a sub-tropical region of Brazil and Argentina, the summer months (December – March) are hot and humid. The shoulder months of September – November and April – May are popular with visitors as the milder temperatures make visiting the falls a more pleasant experience.
