Itinerary idea in detail

Ask us if you would also like us to arrange your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • On arrival in Rio de Janeiro, you will be met at the airport and driven to your hotel in a private vehicle.

  • Enjoy a jeep tour of Rio's most exciting sights, such as Sugarloaf Mountain and the statue of Christ the Redeemer, and take some time to explore the tranquil botanical gardens.

  • This morning is left at your leisure to give you the chance to stroll along the beaches or relax by the pool, but this evening, you will be guided through the bars and casual restaurants of Leblon with a local guide.

  • Private transfer along the stunning Green Coast to the charming colonial town of Paraty, once a key part of Brazil's gold rush.

  • This morning, take a tour through Paraty's historic district where you will learn about the town's history as a strategically important port and how it was essentially preserved in time.

  • This morning, take a half-day group excursion into the Mata Atlantica Forest. Visit some local waterfalls and learn how cachaca, Brazil's own version of rum, is produced at a traditional distillery.

  • Transfer by road and ferry from Paraty to Ilha Grande, a sandy island with jungle-fringed beaches and no cars allowed!

  • At leisure on Ilha Grande — you could trek into the Atlantic rainforest of the island's interior, or take a boat trip to the beautiful Lopes Mendes beach.

  • At leisure on Ilha Grande. Why not try snorkeling at one of the numerous beaches.

  • Transfer back to Rio in time for your international flight home.
