Brazil Tours: Highlights of Brazil

Highlights of this Tour: Iguassu • Rio de Janeiro • Pantanal • Fortaleza • Jericoacoara

Duration: 14 days / 13 nights

Days of Departure: Daily, On Request (Private)

Our Highlights of Brazil Tour covers the highlights of Brazil and will let you see waterfalls, vibrant Rio, the wildlife of the Pantanal and some beach time in the north east region. As many of our passengers visit Brazil following some time in Argentina, we have started this itinerary at Iguassu but this can of course be adapted to your own particular plans. Likewise, the Amazon can replace the Pantanal, or we can change the beach destination to elsewhere along the coast, depending on what time of year you are travelling.
