Brasil, a land of beauty
We recommend a 12-day trip, discovering one of the most beautiful countries in the world where nature is generous, there are wonderful beaches and peoples’ smiles are infinite: the land of samba and the most exuberant Amazon.
RIO DE JANEIRO
Open to the sea and under the watchful eye of Corcovado Christ, the city is a real treat. Ipanema, Maracana, at Sugarloaf … Certainly one of the essentials of any trip to Brazil.
The Iguazu River on the border between Brazil and Argentina, falls from a height of 80 meters, forming the famous waterfalls with more than 275 waterfalls of indescribable beauty. Browse catwalks that allow us to contemplate very closely and reach the spectacular Garganta del Diablo. Then you will understand why it is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.
MANAUS – CRUISER CHALLENGE
Where the Amazon is shown at its best, where river waters will be your highway to discover a unique ecosystem in the world, where we discover a wildlife of extraordinary beauty.
SALVADOR DE BAHIA
Peoples’ smiles, endless white sand beaches, the cradle of capoeira dance, and of course the Pelourinho, the old town of the city where stroll and discover its shops and houses, is a must.
The sea breeze, the sand beneath your feet and the smell of vegetation awaits you if you complete your trip with a few days in Ponta Dos Ganchos.
