Itinerary idea in detail

Open all Close all

Includes international flights from Ireland.

Day 1 Iguaçu Falls

International outbound flight , Sao Paulo , Iguaçu Falls

Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Sao Paulo. After arriving in Brazil, catch your connection to Iguaçu. In Iguaçu, you're met by your chauffeur-guide and driven to your hotel by private transfer. Relax after your long flight. Alternatively, we recommend exploring the Brazilian side of the Falls just outside your hotel. Go for a short walk on one of the well-marked trails leading you to certain key vantage points and panoramic vistas.

Day 2 Iguaçu Falls

Iguaçu Falls

Enjoy a half day private guided tour of the Argentinian side of the Falls, which offers the chance to get up close to the thundering water. Your guide takes you around the area's jungle-clad boardwalks, finishing with a close-up view of the Devil's Throat. The spray given off by this powerful fall caused local people to give it its dramatic epithet. You have the afternoon at leisure: we recommend exploring the nearby bird park, which is run as a charity.

Day 3 Rio de Janeiro

Iguaçu Falls , Rio de Janeiro

This morning, take a two hour internal flight to Rio de Janeiro. Arriving in Rio, you're met by your chauffeur-guide and driven to your hotel by private transfer. There's time this afternoon to start exploring the city, if you wish, or simply soak up the atmosphere on the beaches near your hotel.

Day 4 Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro

Today you're collected from your hotel to embark on a small-group guided tour of Rio's highlights. Travel in an open-top 4x4, an efficient way to get around but also a good way to admire the views of this hilly city. One of your first stops are the mansions and galleries of the Santa Teresa quarter, before you climb to Corcovado Hill to admire the statue of Christ the Redeemer up close. End with time in Tijuca Forest, the world's largest urban forest, before returning to your hotel. The whole tour lasts around four hours, and you have the rest of the day at leisure.

Day 5 Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro

Enjoy a day at leisure. Hopefully the weather cooperates so you can soak up Rio's famous beaches. Later in the evening hit the town with your foodie guide on a tour that takes in the best of Rio's street and bar food scene.

Day 6 Búzios

Rio de Janeiro , Búzios

Today you head for the beaches and bays of Buzios, about three hours driving from Rio. Your pousada is a lovely hideaway set just back from the bay enveloped by lush vegetation with a pool, sun loungers, and an excellent bar from which you can take in the views upon arrival.

Day 7 Búzios


Enjoy a day of leisure in Buzios. You can choose to relax at your pousada, stroll the boardwalk and downtown, or venture further afield to one of the many nearby beaches.

Day 8 Búzios


Another day of leisure in Buzios. Continue to sit back and relax or you could opt for a schooner cruise around the peninsula.
