Luxury Holidays - Brazil
7000 kilometres of white beaches. The world’s largest rainforest. The planet’s second longest river. The ultimate vibrant city. The most famous street festival on Earth. Are there enough superlatives to adequately describe Brazil?
Stand on top of Sugar Loaf Mountain. Peer down at the chaotic but picturesque old Portuguese city of Rio de Janeiro, and beyond over the majestic Atlantic ocean. This has got to be one of the travel experiences of a lifetime.
But Brazil specialises in such moments.
Ask Nabila Cash, one of our Brazil specialists, to create a tailor-made Brazil holiday itinerary for you and she’ll pack it with amazing, Brazilian events. Dining out on a Moqueca dish in a local restaurant. Standing on the deck of a boat as it sails under the Iguassu Falls – one of the highest waterfalls in the world. Or trekking through the Amazon rainforest with an experienced local guide. Or exploring The Pantanal, one of the world’s largest and most important wetlands.
And this is just the beginning. Take Nabila’s advice; visit the Chapada Diamantina and you’ll find yourself in the lost world of fantastical rock formations, subterranean rivers and quartzite caves with underground lakes.
Equally as enthralling, but totally different are the stupendous costumes, choreography and flirtatious joy of Balé Folclórico da Bahia – the wild dancing of Salvador.
The small archipelago of Fernando De Noronha offers some of the finest diving and snorkelling in the world with visibility of up to 50 metres, revealing a delightful array of marine life such as turtles, stingrays and dolphins.
Talk to Nabila. She’ll tailor you an experience as big as Brazil. An exclusive Brazil holiday with The Ultimate Travel Company.
