Witness some of nature’s finest work as we stroll along jungle trails once used by the Aboriginals of those regions. We explore waterfalls, viewpoints, secluded beaches, and learn about some of the area’s flora and fauna. The chosen trails are easy and enjoyable for everyone with regular animal sightings along the way.
Hop aboard this beautiful vessel as we embark on a daylong journey into the open waters of Brazil’s southern coast. The party stops at many different locations, ranging from secluded coves to an old Portuguese lookout post featuring canons and incredible views of the surrounding bays. While in the water, keep an eye out for sea turtles and green turtles. If you’re really lucky, dolphins will playfully swim along side the boat as we dance, drink and enjoy ourselves until sundown with the company of new friends.
4X4 jeeps take us high into the hills of Brazil’s coastal forests, where many beautiful and unique waterfalls await us. With rope swings and natural waterslides, there is something for every adventurer. Not many can say they have slid down a waterfall or swung on a hidden jungle rope swing, so let’s take full advantage of nature’s waterpark! After, we stop at a cachaça distillery to try the local brew and possibly purchase some souvenirs.
Cristo Redentor, in Brazilian Portuguese, sits 700m above the city, and is the largest art deco statue in the world. First we travel through the Tijuca forest, the most expansive urban rainforest on the planet before stopping off at two view points overlooking the “City of God.” A symbol of “hope and protection” for the citizens of Rio de Janeiro, this iconic symbol of Brazilian Christianity is a must see while in Rio providing incredibly breathtaking views.
LAPA is known for its art, samba dancing, restaurants and all night street parties. It’s a district where foreigners and locals can go to enjoy the same common interests. Great vibes, good music, and fun people are part of the reason you can’t help but smile and enjoy yourself. A LAPA street party is unlike any other street party, just be ready to dance!
We have partnered with an organization that works at solving problems in some of Rio’s poorest Favelas. The organization targets issues in many different areas of the Favela and works hard to bring community members and volunteers together to complete much needed projects. You may be helping at a school for a day, painting buildings and sidewalks, or helping out in one of the urban gardening projects. The communities need your help and we are happy to bring you here to show you a true experience of what it means to live in Rio’s Favelas.
For more information about the organization, and to sign up for extra volunteering either before or after the tour, please check out this link: http://communityinaction.org/
A visit to Brazil just wouldn't be complete without at stop at one of the 7 natural wonders, the Iguazu falls. There are over 300 separate waterfalls making this the largest network of waterfalls in the world. The falls are a truly remarkable sight that can only be witnessed first hand. You will have the option to take a speed boat and get soaked under the falls.
