    There’s a Brazilian saying that “God made the world in six days, the seventh he devoted to Rio”. When you’re standing 700-metres high at the base of Christ The Redeemer, with 360-degree views of the city’s beaches, lagoons, forests, bays and mountains it’s hard to disagree. 

    Why we love it

    • At the border with Brazil, we experience the magnificent might of Iguazu Falls, before finally arriving in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Rio de Janeiro.

    Itinerary

    Day 1-2 - Rio De Janeiro

    • Arrive in Rio and take your complimentary transfer to the Peregrine joining hotel.
    • This evening at approximately 6pm you will have a group welcome meeting. Please check the notice board in the reception area for confirmation of the time and place.
    • The next morning you will start the tour with a visit to the famed Statue of Christ, which presides over the city and enjoys expansive views across the forests, beaches, bays and mountains that surround the city. From tourist mecca to local favela, your next stop will take you through the narrow laneways of these vibrant communities. You will have the opportunity to meet some local people and learn more about life within a favela.
    • The intense green of Guanabara Bay and the beauty of the surrounding slopes of the Corcovado and Sugar Loaf Mountain, make Rio a majestic place, locals like to say that 'God made the world in six days, the seventh he devoted to Rio'.
    • The Portuguese influence is ever-present here, especially in the opulent Portuguese buildings that were constructed when the Portuguese monarchy fled Europe under threat of Napolean and took up residence here.
    • The contrast between the opulence of this architecture, the extravagance of Carnaval and destitute poverty of the favelas make this one of the most fascinating and diverse cities in the world. Live music is the heartblood of the city, with everything from samba, jazz, bossa nova, hip hop, reggae and rock to the myriad of regional styles and fusions. Lapa is the place to go if you want to join locals for some serious dancing in the many dancehalls there.
    • The white sand beaches at Copacabana and Ipanema are certainly the best place for people watching.

    Day 3-4 - Iguazu Falls

    • Today you will fly to Puerto Iguazu, from where you will explore the impressive Iguazu Falls.

The falls are two kilometres in length, and made up of 275 falls in total, some of which stretch up to 80 metres high. This makes them both higher than Niagara and wider than Victoria Falls. The Brazilian side of the falls offers great panoramic views of them, while the Argentinean allows to you to get up close and personal with the powerful falls on boardwalks.
    • You can choose to get an even more exhilarating look at Iguazu via a zodiac boat ride below the falls or a helicopter flight over the top.
