Feel alive throughout this giant country
Energetic loud, a riot of colour, Brazil is one of those countries that sort of hits you from the moment you touch down. Perhaps no country on earth has such vibrant and immediate culture, one in which life is not to be taken too seriously, and to be enjoyed in traditions such as Carnival and the ubiquitous day on the beach. Yet scratch the surface and there is an incredible diversity to the country, this is more than just a party, this is a mix of European, African and indigenous influences, this is a culture vultures dream, a foodies delight and a wildlife watchers paradise.
Enjoy several holidays rolled into one
Brazil is huge, simply huge, the 5th largest country in the world, is therefore too big to discover in one trip. The joy of Brazil is that this distance means you can treat two weeks in the country as the opportunity to experience multiple types of holiday – the city break in Rio, the safari in the Pantanal, the natural wonders of the Iguacu Falls and the Amazon and the perfect beach break to cap it off. The key to enjoying this country is to avoid biting off more than you can chew – less is more here – and that’s why speaking to one of our experts is vital in ensuring you have the perfect trip
Rio de Janeiro is one of those cities that has an almost legendary status, its skyline is right up there with New York and Hong Kong as iconic cityscapes. The calming gaze of Christ the Redeemer gazes over a city that is almost impossible in its geography. Its beaches alone conjure up legendary images, Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon are world famous, and continue to draw people in. Rio is not the only city worth visiting though, Salvador de Bahia is UNESCO world heritage site, and the old town oozes history and culture. A centre of Brazil’s African culture and history, this city feels like no other in South America, with food, music and dance you will find nowhere else one earth. Sprawling Sao Paulo offers fascinating galleries and museums, while the capital Brasilia is fascinating for those interested in modern architecture
Brazil is the lungs of the world. The vast Amazon Rainforest offers the chance to see wildlife and incredible local cultures, while the sheer scale of the jungle will blow visitors away. Wildlife nuts should head for the Pantanal however, where the world’s largest wetland shelters a cornucopia of species including the mighty Jaguar – this is one of the best wildlife experiences outside of Africa. The Iguacu Falls are simply awe-inspiring and the unique dunes of Lencois Maranhenses unique. All of this is before we even discuss the beaches, 8000km of coastline, plays home to some of the best strips of sand in the world. The famed city beaches of Rio may be the big hitters, but the stunningly deserted Bahian coast is incredible, while the jungle fringed coves of the Atlantic Rainforest in the south provide picture postcard vistas. There really is a beach for everyone

Rio de Janeiro
One of the worlds truly greatest cities, bask in the beauty of Rio. Take the cable car up Sugar Loaf Mountain, for views of the city and Christ the Redeemer, before relaxing on the famous beaches of Copacabana or Ipanema
One of the most jaw dropping sites in Latin America, these waterfalls spanning the border of Brazil and Argentina are simply stunning. Explore the boardwalks and footpaths of the National Parks on either side, as you soak up a truly spectacular location.
The colonial city of Salvador is a a unique destination. 70% of the population are of African descent adding an African flair to the city. The surrounding state of Bahia is home to some of Brazil's best beaches, long white sand stretches that you can often have all to yourself.
The worlds largest wetland is found in a National Park the size of England. Explore on foot, on horseback or in kayaks, and you are sure to see some of the best wildlife anywhere on the continent. Jaguar, Caiman, Capybara and Jabiru Stork are just some of the unique species to be observed.
Vast, unexplored and iconic, no trip to Brazil would be complete without some time exploring the vast Amazon jungle. Stay in a lodge and spot wildlife, visit local indigenous communities and swim in the cooling waters of the Amazon and its tributaries. This is a true Latin American great.

January to March are the summer months and good times for visiting, especially if you want a beach stay. Rainy season starts in the Pantanal and Amazon which generally means less wildlife sightings. Carnival falls in February usually and is a particularly popular time to travel for Brazilians.
A good time to travel as the really high temperatures start to decline. Rainy season begins to end in the Pantanal making wildlife easier to see. The beaches south of Rio are particularly nice to visit at this time of year.
Rainfall is increasing in the northern areas, including the beaches of Bahia. In the Pantanal however the dry season is in full swing, and wildlife is at its most accessible. Late September onwards is the best time for Jaguar spotting
Spring is superb in Rio, with gerneally clear skies and temperatures on the rise. December can prove very busy with visitors flocking to Rio and the beaches for festive breaks it is also very hot and humid along the coast. Early Autumn still provides good wildlife opportunities, but the rains begin again in the Pantanal in December.
