Listening to the best live music bar and dancing samba with the locals in Rio Scenarium (arty with an edge).
Enjoying morning access to Brazil’s colourful wildlife.
Abseiling down Iguassu Falls.
Getting mesmerizing 260 degree view of Iguassu’s cascading water.
The first leg of your Brazilian adventure will begin with a stay at the magnificent Hotel Das Cataratas, perfectly positioned within walking distance of the Iguassu Falls.
As well as offering unparalleled views of the falls and the lush greenery of the park, the hotel gives its guests privileged access to the falls. Venture out early and enjoy a private viewing of the early morning risers such as toucans and parakeets.
...uttered Eleanor Roosevelt when she first laid eyes on the Brazilian falls. It is not surprising really. Rivaled only in size by Victoria Falls in Southern Africa, Iguassu is split into about 270 discrete falls and large islands. Its shape provides awe-inspiring vistas and a choice of walkways for spectacular promenades. In need of a little more adrenaline-pumping activity? The falls will take you for the ride of your life. Literally. Experience heart-thumping adventure as you tackle the torrents by raft or abseil down the falls' rock face. Not for the fainthearted.
Having conquered the falls, it is now time to conquer the city that never sleeps. By far one of the most exciting times of the year to visit Rio is during Carnival, celebrated annually 40 days before Easter.
But Brazilians are renowned for partying all year round and our local reps are always on hand to introduce you to the city's hottest clubs and bars.
Still feeling energized from the Samba-fuelled night before, take a breathtaking jog along the black and white mosaic boardwalk of world-famous Ipanema beach or if you're up for a real challenge forget the cable cars and try rock-climbing Sugar Loaf. Stay at the Fasano, one the city's hippest hotels and you'll have easy access to all the glamour and glitz the city has to offer. And the best bit? Three of the suites have spectacular views of one of the city's main attractions, the Christ statue atop Corcovado Mountain.
This is your chance to experience the beauty, sophistication and buzz of Brazil in true Latin style.
