About this trip

Your adventure will start at the marvelous city, Rio de Janeiro. There you will visit one of the seven wonders of the modern world, Christ the Redeemer Statue, take a ride at the famous cable car of Sugar Loaf Mountain and explore Tijuca’s Forest, the largest urban rainforest of the world. And of course, we’ll spare some time for you enjoy the stunning beaches that surround the city and its nonstop nightlife.

And we’ll head to Foz do Iguaçu to enjoy one of the biggest waterfalls in the world, the Iguazu Falls at both (Brazilian and Argentinian) sides. The name Iguazu comes from native languages of Brazil, and means “big water”. Legend has it that a god wanted to marry a mortal woman, but she ran away with her lover in a boat across the river. Boiling with rage, the god divided the river and condemned the lovers to an eternal fall.

After that, we’ll head to the Amazon Rainforest, the biggest rainforest of the world to explore the unique biodiversity that resides there. You will stay in a true Amazon Jungle Lodge, canoe through the Igapós (flooded forest), meet the native people and spot exotic wildlife in the jungle.
