A journey to discover Brazil’s soul

This journey is mainly to discover the exuberant nature of the local people, but not only that. Brazil is also a land of men with a thousand contrasts, it has the reputation of having the greatest cultural diversity in the world.

Thus, each region has its customs and costumes, its music and its cuisine, and its very specific vocabulary, most often linked to the particular environment in which it develops.

In Iguacu, there is an astonishing ethnic diversity. From the Indian descendant to the Lebanese, from Japanese to Portuguese all living in harmony and creating rich and permanent cultural exchanges across origins and religions. In the Pantanal, the gauchos, or cowboys of the south and central Brazil, who live with their cattle herds in the grassy plains have developed a whole culture of their own.

In Amazonia, You will feel the indigenous influence on the way the locals live. Whether in their cooking, architecture, or religious thought … the Amerindian heritage is felt everywhere.

In the Northeast, along the long beaches between Sao Luis and Fortaleza You will encounter people descending from the interbreeding between the European settlers and the indigenous populations of the coast. There is a well developed fishing culture as well as the famous Servaneja tradition, which is based on the hard life found on the arid and torrid lands of the region. In Salvador de Bahia, You will discover the cradle of Afro-Brazilian culture, one of the strongest in Brazil, and at the origin of fascinating syncretic religions, the Candomblé and Umbanda.

In Minas Gerais, All the baroque and colonial heritage of Brazil will unfold before you, not forgetting the famous warm hospitality of the Mineiros.

Finally in Rio de Janeiro, you will find the Brazil that we all love in the samba and the sweet bossa nova played in the bars of Lapa. You should also experience the fervor of the carnival and its ensaios – the rehearsals for the final show.

With the Grand Tour of Brazil, You will leave with one simple wish, to come back and enjoy the beauty and the joy of one of the most wonderful countries in the world!
