We recommend the Macuco Safari for added adrenaline, it takes you right up to the falls in powerful Zodiac RIB boats. You speed up the river and stop right in the middle of the turbulent waters, thrills guaranteed !

Also the Tijuca forest and the Saint Sebastien cathedral, a stay in this magnificent city certainly combines culture, beauty and nature.

Your tour continues to the north towards the Minas Gerais region. To get to these historical destinations you will traverse the “Gold route” one of the first main roads in Brazil. It allowed the transport of large sacks of gold from the mountains of Minas Gerais to the small port of Paraty in Rio de Janeiro state.

Along this road engulfed in history, you will visit the imperial city of Petrópolis, with its neo-classic palaces and its unusual alpine chalets. Then it’s on to discover the ancient colonial towns of Tiradentes, Ouro Preto and Mariana, and their amazing baroque sanctuaries.

The thunderous Iguaçu falls from above.

In the Northeast of Brazil, your tour continues among the dunes and lagoons.

Your vacation continues along the Northeast coastline among the paradisical landscapes, at the relaxed pace of local life.

You can wander the charming streets lined with coloured houses in the old town center of Salvador de Bahia at the heart of which lies the famous Pelourinho. In these picturesque cobbled streets you will feel the energy of all the history of Brazil since the renaissance as it seems to unfold before your eyes.

Then it’s off to the Itapagipe peninsula where you might choose a paper bracelet at the Bonfim Church. If you appreciate colonial architecture and would like to discover the rural life and traditional cuisine, you can also stop at Cachoeira, a charming little town 100km from the capital well renowned for its colonial buildings that are still intact.

The last stage of this tour takes place in the states of Ceará and Maranhão. In a buggy or 4×4, you will explore the wild coastline setting off from Fortaleza and driving to the peaceful fishing village of Guajiru where you will stay right on the coast.

You will then continue along the coastline to Jericoacoara, a legendary destination, consistently voted one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Here you can take the time to discover the superb turquoise rain water lagoons, giant immaculate sand dunes, deserted beaches as far as the eye can see and small fishing villages, along the coast.

Venture further into the wild heading towards the delta of Parnaíba, a unique ecosystem of river islands on an estuary. Aboard a private motor boat, your guide and navigator will show you the “guaras,” scarlet ibis, and the brightly coloured mangrove crabs. During this trip you may even encounter a jacaré, the small caiman found here.

The spectacle is of extraordinary beauty and although the first lagoons may have other visitors, as soon as you adventure a little further you find yourself alone in this amazing desert. Accompanied by your guide, you can experience the silence in this heavenly landscape, and really appreciate the present moment as you take a dip in a lagoon all to yourself, surrounded by massive dunes; a truly unforgettable experience!
