The vivacious dancers and floats of Rio de Janeiro’s Carnival seem to embody Brazil’s verve and swagger. At the other extreme, there are the unspoiled waterworlds of the Amazon basin and the Pantanal, where all kinds of wildlife flourish in quiet, barely inhabited pockets. Our specialists have a great affection for this cavernous, contradictory country. They’re enthusiastic about showing you its many incarnations on a Brazil tour, perhaps taking you from the undeveloped beaches of the Northeast Coast to the bookish colonial town of Paraty in the south.
We can point you toward experiences that only a holiday to Brazil can offer: you might not expect to find an opera house on the edge of the rainforest, but it exists in Manaus. And, where else can you see capoeiristas refining their dexterous dance-come-martial-art on beaches at sunset — or catch spontaneous bursts of samba drumming in the middle of a busy street?

My travels in Brazil
Brazil likes to put on a show, as specialist Jeff’s footage shows. Pantaneiros (cowboys) riding across the world’s largest tropical wetland, acrobatic capoeira, and the panoramas of oceanside Rio — you could potentially see it all on your own tailor-made trip.
