Brazil is the home of the Carnival, great steak, fantastic music, amazing culture, beautiful beaches, lush rainforests, stunning scenery and so much more. It is a perfect destination for those who love wildlife, as it is home to The Pantanal, the World’s largest freshwater wetland which straddles the borders of Brazil, Paraguay and Bolivia. The Pantanal is regarded as the best place to spot wild animals in the whole of South America. You can spot Caiman, Howler monkeys, giant otters, anacoda, capybara, ocelot, marmoset, tapir, peccary and if you’re lucky, the jaguar. It is also great for visiting the Amazon, a huge area of rainforest and waterways that cover six of Brazil’s states, stretching from its mouth at the Atlantic Ocean, all the way to the Peruvian, Columbian and Bolivian borders. You can stay in some amazing Amazon Lodges and experience nature walks and wildlife boat trips, or meet the local people. For a better chance of seeing the wonderful wildlife, you can take a cruise on the Amazon river. The possibilities are endless in this stunning area.
For those who love photography and gorgeous scenery, Iguassu Falls is a series of waterfalls collected on the borders between Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay, fed by the Iguassu River and located in the Iguassu National Park. There are a total of 275 waterfalls altogether, with an average of 1,500 cubic metres per second rushing over the Parana Plateau. It is one of the most dynamic and awe-inspiring sights in all of South America. You can view the falls from the Brazil side and this gives a more panoramic view of their beauty, whereas on the Argentinian side you can get much closer, and even have a boat ride under the falls!
The Northeast coast of Brazil is home to some of Brazil’s most dramatic coastline and best beaches. The area is made up of several major cities, each with their own attractions and idyllic resorts hidden up and down the coast. The cities of Recife, Olinda, Sao Luis and Fortaleza have deep colonial heritage with preserved historic centres and a range of attractions to enjoy. Each one also has their own city beach.
A stay in Rio de Janeiro is a must when you visit Brazil, with great sites to see such as Sugarloaf Mountain, where you can experience breathtaking views of the city, Corcavado where you can see the famous Christ the Redeemer statue, Copacabana Beach and Ipenema Beach.
What’s even better is how accessible this gorgeous country is to us now, as you can fly direct from London to Rio de Janeiro, and we can create a wonderful tailormade itinerary to suit you.
