This tour encompasses the very best natural attractions of Brazil in a 10-day luxury Brazil vacation. Your arrival to Rio de Janeiro is the perfect starting point as you absorb the magnificent views from the Sugarloaf Mountain of the spectacular bay. Then journey to the depths of the Amazon rainforest at Manaus for a chance to swim with pink dolphins, fish for piranha or explore the most bio-diverse eco-systems on our planet. Your guided jungle tours all led by expert guides from your luxury jungle lodge accommodation. Finally head south to Iguazu National Park, the cradle of the mighty Iguazu Falls nestled between Brazil and Argentina. At 1.7 miles in length and 269 feet in height these falls even make Niagra pale to insignificance. You can even journey by boat to hear the roar and feel the deluge of water under the falls or for a special treat why not arrange an overflight by helicopter.

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). Manaus Amazon Jungle Region is split into 2 seasons: wet season from November – April and the dry season from May – October. Each season brings different experiences and wildlife, but wet season months tend to be warmer and more humid, so many visitors opt to avoid these months. 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.
Rio Carnival Dates:
2019 Dates: March 1 – March 6
2019 Dates: February 21 – February 26
Dates are flexible and customized to meet your needs. Let us know which dates work best for you and we will tailor the itinerary accordingly.
