The largest country in Latin America, Brazil has an immense natural diversity of rich landscape, a colourful culture and a compelling history. We have compiled a 12 day escorted holiday with an itinerary that goes into the very heart and soul of this intriguing land to stay in traditional lodges, boutique hotels, private houses and coastal retreats.
During the holiday there will be plenty of walking, riding, sight-seeing and excursions.
The tour starts in a Fazenda and former coffee plantation in the province of Sao Paulo from where we travel to the green coast for two days in one of the most beautiful and unspoilt areas of protected national park. Then we are off to the vibrant city of Rio de Janeiro for two days of exploration before flying north to the historical Salvador.
We drive inland to the pretty and little known town of Chapada Diamantina. This area is renowned for its dramatic landscapes and varied wildlife. The holiday is all that we love, centred around good food, good wine, much humour and in great comfort.
This is not a walking holiday but includes the option of some days walking excursions.
