If you can extend your trip after enjoying spectacular Rio we can show you a quite different side of breathtaking Brazil.
Our excursions include:
Paraty - a lovingly preserved and charming 18th Century colonial town just 125 miles south of Rio where in the 1700’s gold-laden ships departed for Portugal. It's a favourite with Brazilians and visitors who want to get away from it all in an historic town, laze on one of the many beaches, and indulge in a restful holiday break.
Minas Gerais – the region where the gold mined was transported along the Caminho do Ouro (The Golden Trail) all the way to Paraty. The area is often described as ‘The Tuscany of Brazil’ famous for its villas, churches and European architecture, the unique mix of African, native American and Portuguese influenced gastronomy, and the natural and extraordinary eco tourism in its many state parks.
Iguaza Falls – stradling the border of Brazil and Argentina these 275waterfalls (along 1.5 miles of the Iguaza River) are considered among the most impressive on Earth and often described as “an ocean pouring into an abyss”. Though most of the falls are in Argentina, the best views are from the Brazilian side. This Video will take your breath away.
