Over View

Imagine experiencing Brazil. Ok, now imagine experiencing virtually all of it and you’ve pretty well summed up this absolutely incredible 26-day whirlwind tour of nearly all the country’s highlights. Start off discovering why Rio is a favourite city for anyone who’s been. Feel the vibrations (in your heart) from the rumble of Iguassu Falls. Then head north into the Amazon to explore the lush jungle. After find yourself in Chapada NP finding waterfalls, caves, and parts of yourself you’d long forgotten. From party time in the cities, to some serious beach time along the coasts, this is the right (aka best) way to do iconic Brazil.
