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.
The holiday starts in Rio de Janeiro, iconic to Brazil’s identity. We then head inland to the less explored area of the Mantiqueira Mountain Range and stay on a 5000 hectare estate who are pioneering sustainability and reforestation in the area. We will have the chance to see varied wildlife and learn about the native trees and animal species staying in an area of outstanding beauty. From there we head further North to the Central Coastal city of Salvador, steeped in history offering the chance to really get under the skin of the heart of the Brazilian culture, well known for its fantastic cuisine and capoeira. The holiday then heads to charming Paraty, a seaside village that has become an artists’ haven located on the luscious Green Coast where we there will be expeditions on land and sea. The final night is spent back in Rio de Janeiro for our last evening.
During the holiday there will be plenty of walking, riding, sight-seeing and excursions. This is not a walking holiday but includes the option of some days walking excursions.
