And then relax. In the middle of this native jungle you can lounge in an outside bathtub, laze on a hammock listening to the calls of the forest, dine on superb food….

Other itineraries in Brazil

  • We have travelled with TUTC six times, the most recent was to New Zealand last year. The trip was very well organised as usual, with excellent accommodation and a wide variety of experiences. We had booked to go to Australia with them this year but due to Covid this was cancelled, Ultimate handled the situation very professionally and promptly refunded the whole of our deposit without any quibble.
