Itinerary idea in detail

Includes international flights from a choice of UK airports, including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

  • Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Rio de Janeiro. On arrival in Rio today you will be met by a guide and driven to your Copacabana hotel in a private vehicle.

  • Today take a guided tour of Rio's most iconic sights, such as the statue of Christ the Redeemer and a cable car ride up to Sugarloaf.

  • Today we recommend something a bit more active before the Carnival celebrations begin. Take a hike up Pedra Bonita, a well known as the hill which offers beautiful views of the Barra da Tijuca shoreline, the Gavea Stone, and the Tijuca Forest. After a bit of time to relax and freshen up Carnival begins! In the evening you will be transferred to the famous Sambadrome to enjoy the colourful samba parades. (Tickets in the non-numbered bleachers are included but upgrades are available for additional cost.)

  • After a celebratory evening this day will be left at leisure for you. This gives you the opportunity to relax at the beach or simply enjoy the hotel's amenities. If you're up for it, you may wish to head over to a part of the city you haven't yet visited such as the enchanting Santa Teresa district.

  • After your morning flight to Iguaçu your chauffeur-guide meets you and drives you to your hotel. You have the afternoon to settle in and relax.

  • Your guide will pick you up at your hotel for a private half day guided tour of the Argentinian side of the falls. You'll walk over the jungly boardwalks to different viewpoints, allowing you to get up close to the water, and will also visit the 'Devil's Throat' — the most powerful section of the falls.

  • This morning you will be picked up at your hotel for a private half day guided tour of the Brazilian side of the falls. From here, you'll see the other side of this amazing labyrinth of cascades including some of the most incredible panoramic views of the falls. In the afternoon you will take a flight back to Sao Paulo and take an airport shuttle to your hotel.

  • Today you will transfer to the airport for your international flight and begin the journey home.

  • Arrive home today to complete your journey.
