Rio de Janeiro Stopover

Rio de Janeiro is without doubt South America's most beautiful city, and regarded as the holiday capital of Brazil. We take in spectacular 360 degree views from Sugarloaf Mountain and visit Corcavado to witness Christ the Redeemer towering over Rio’s six million local inhabitants known as ‘cariocas’. The famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema stretch for miles, and a stroll along the promenade with a freshly squeezed fruit juice or ‘caipirinha’, is the best way to relax and see people of all shapes and sizes congregating on the sand.

What's Included


What to know


Vaccinations may be required for this trip. Please talk to your doctor about the up-to-date information for this region.  We're travel experts, not doctors and defer to the medicos when it comes to inoculations.

Visas and Permits

Please ensure that you have all required visas for your trip – this is your responsibility. Rules and regulations governing the issuance of visas are constantly changing, and vary for different nationalities and you should check visa requirements with your travel agent or relevant consular authority well before travel.


Australians, Americans and Canadians currently require a visa for Brazil. Please note - processing can take around 2-5 weeks at the discretion of the embassy or consulate. Please ensure you allow enough time for processing, before you leave home.
British, EU and New Zealand passport holders, currently do not require a visa for Brazil. For all other nationalities please reconfirm your visa requirements with your travel agent.

If you intend to leave Brazil and return during your trip, you should obtain a multiple entry visa before leaving home. You should also ensure that an exit stamp is placed in your passport by Brazilian immigration authorities when you depart Brazil. On arrival you must complete an arrival card, which has a carbon copy. The carbon copy must be presented to immigration authorities on departure. Failure to do so may result in delays and possibly a fine when departing Brazil.


You are required to have travel insurance before heading off on a Peregrine trip. Insurance can be organised by your Peregrine representative or your travel agent.
