Two Week Brazil Circuit Travel

Two Week Brazil Circuit

14 Days/13 Nights

Take two weeks to tour Brazil and enjoy a little flavour of the history, culture and nature in five of the finest destinations. The cities of Rio de Janeiro and Paraty have the cultural and historical highlights, and both have scenery of their own too. Copacabana and Ipanema Beaches combine with mountains, bays and lagoons in Rio, while you visit Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf Mountain. 

The Amazon Jungle and Iguazu Falls are two world-class ecotourism destinations, with rainforest, native wildlife and fascinating local culture to learn about. Both make the list of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World. 

The Costa Verde is the most scenic coastline in Brazil, stretching between Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, with Atlantic Rainforest, rugged mountains, paradise islands and beautiful beaches combining to make it the perfect finish to your two-week circuit of Brazil.  

Combines With: Buenos Aires; Buzios; Sao Paulo

Best Time to Visit: This tour can be taken all year round although December to March has the Amazon wet season, and are also the hottest, most humid and busiest months for Rio, Iguazu and the Costa Verde. April through to October would usually be the best combination.

Day 1
Arrive in Rio de Janeiro

Destination: Rio de Janeiro

After being welcomed on your arrival in Rio de Janeiro, your Brazil Adventure Tours guide describes the Marvellous City during the journey to your hotel. You pass along the edge of Guanabara Bay, with first glimpses of the city, the statue of Christ The Redeemer and Sugar Loaf Mountain before you arrive at Copacabana and Ipanema Beaches. After arriving at your hotel, we will go through the details of your Brazil Tour and give you some local tips for your time in the city. The day is then free to explore Rio and perhaps enjoy your first caipirinha cocktail at sunset from Arpoador, the headland between the two main beaches.
Day 2
Through Rio to Christ the Redeemer

Destination: Rio de Janeiro

Your first tour of Rio takes you to see the historic side of Rio, the Municipal Theatre and the grand buildings that date from the 19th Century and earlier. The modern Metropolitan Cathedral and the antique Arches of Lapa are two more of Rio's postcard sights. You then travel to the top of Corcovado, the steep 710m/2,340ft high mountain topped by the 31m/102ft statue of Christ The Redeemer. The views from the base across Rio, its beaches and mountains, over the Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, Guanabara Bay and the Atlantic Ocean are as spectacular as city views can be. The afternoon and evening are free to relax.
Day 3
Cable Cars and Sugar Loaf Views

Destination: Rio de Janeiro

Morning brings a journey around the lagoon to the Botanical Gardens in the shadow of Corcovado. The gardens contain an array of tropical species, with palms, orchids and the pau brasil tree that gave its name to the country watched over by monkeys and toucans. You then travel to the bottom of Sugar Loaf Mountain to ride the two cable cars to the 396m summit. The city views take in of Copacabana Beach, the mountains behind the statue of Christ the Redeemer and also those surrounding Rio on a clear day. The afternoon and evening are free once more, with a typical Brazilian churrascaria barbeque being one dinner option.
Day 4
Journey to the Jungle

Destination: Rio de Janeiro to Manaus & Tariri Lodge

After an early transfer to the airport, you fly over the Amazon Jungle to Manaus, where you will be picked up for the vehicle and boat journey to Tariri Lodge, amongst the sights and sounds of the Amazon. The lodge sits on the edge of Lago de Acajatuba, part of the Rio Negro river system. In the afternoon you can take a boat tour around the lake, visiting some of the houses of the river residents before returning to the lodge for dinner. In the evening you have the ppportunity to look for caiman alligators, the largest reptile in South America, along the Amazon River system before you settle into your rustic cabin and fall asleep to the sounds of the Amazon Jungle.
Day 5
Explore the Amazon Jungle

Destination: Tariri Lodge

Your time at the lodge can be spent engaging in Amazon activities - trekking through the jungle with your expert guide, canoeing along the creeks and through the trunks of the flooded forests, amongst wildlife such as the birds, monkeys and possibly sloths. You have the opportunity to fish for piranha too. The legendary Amazon fish is not always as dangerous to humans as humans are to them - you can also learn how many uses of those sharp teeth there are in the Amazon. You return to the lodge in the late afternoon to enjoy the sounds of the sunset once more. Dinner is again at the lodge, with meals cooked from fresh local ingredients.
Day 6
Amazon River Dolphins

Destination: Tariri Lodge

After breakfast you take a ride in regional canoes through the Amazonian Creeks and Flooded Forests in the warm Rio Negro waters and explore parts of the Amazon Jungle that are impossible to reach on foot or by motor boat. The tranquility allows you to enjoy the sights and sounds for yourselves. After lunch you can head out on boat to visit a local dolphin colony, including the pink Amazon River Dolphins. Your guide is always on hand with some expert local knowledge and the animals sometimes stay and play for half the afternoon, making this kind of personal interaction a highlight of your Amazon tour.
Day 7
Rainforest & Falls

Destination: Amazon Lodge to Manaus & Iguazu Falls

Sunrise is a spectacular start to every day in the Amazon, with a colourful dawn chorus as flocks of parakeets, macaws, parrots and many other species compete to make the most noise. After breakfast you begin the boat and road journey back to Manaus. From here you fly on in the afternoon to Iguazu Falls, and your first chance to see the 275 separate falls of the Rio Iguazu comes as you land. On arrival you will be met for immediate transfer to your hotel, with a late arrival necessary. Please be sure to wear appropriate clothing and footwear for Iguazu Falls, as the walkways, paths and yourselves become wet from the spray. Camera protection is also a good idea.
Day 8
Mesmeric Iguazu

Destination: Iguazu Falls

After breakfast you cross to the Argentinean national park, where walkways allow you to experience the majesty of Iguazu from very close quarters. The undoubted highlight is the mesmeric experience of looking down into The Devil's Throat as the falling water pounds the bottom, creating the roar and mist that mean Iguazu Falls can be seen and heard for miles around. The afternoon finishes with the adventure boat ride which takes you right under the falling curtains of water. In the evening you may like to take in a Latin American Dance Show, or in the period around Full Moon, you can visit the falls to view Iguazu By Moonlight
Day 9
From Iguazu to the Costa Verde

Destination: Iguazu Falls to Sao Paulo & Paraty

In the morning, you will be picked up for your journey back to the airport, stopping off at the Brazil Falls National Park along the way for majestic panoramic views of Iguazu from across the gorge. After lunch above the falls at Porto Canoas Restaurant, you fly to Sao Paulo, you travel up the Costa Verde, Brazil's Emerald Coast, and possibly its most spectacular coastal route, with jungle-covered mountains towering up to your left, and tropical islands dotting the sparkling blue bays to your right. After checking in you can spend the evening exploring the historic centre of Paraty, whose harbour, cobbled streets and colourful colonial houses make a pleasurable wander day and night.
Day 10
Tropical Islands and Crystal Waters

Destination: Paraty

Your Paraty day begins at the picturesque harbour, with brightly painted boats taking you into the bay to visit some of the tropical islands, secluded beaches and crystal clear coves. Stops for snorkelling, swimming and strolling along the sands come before lunch, usually served on board. The journey back is a pleasant cruise as the sun dips behind the mountains, bathing Paraty in rays. After arriving late afternoon, the evening is free once more to appreciate the renowned seafood restaurants of the town. Shops also open late, with local cachaça of different flavours from the distilleries nearby being a favourite souvenir of Paraty.
Day 12
Escape to Ilha Grande

Destination: Paraty to Ilha Grande

After breakfast you transfer an hour to Angra dos Reis where the morning boat takes you to the largest island in the bay, Ilha Grande. On arrival at Vila do Abraao, the main village of the island, you will be helped with your luggage as there are no vehicles on the island, so journeys on foot along the beaches are necessary. After checking in, the afternoon is free to enjoy the beach, swing in a hammock under the trees, or perhaps walk or kayak to the beaches at Praia Crena or Abraaozinho. In the shallows of Crena or Praia Canto, the end of the main beach, you can often find sea turtles feeding, and snorkelling with them is an island treat.
Day 13
Treasure Island Paradise

Destination: Ilha Grande

After breakfast you can walk down to the town pier where a boat takes you around the island to see all of Ilha Grande's stunning coastline (if the wind is strong, the boat may be restricted to the continental side only, as the Atlantic waves become too rough). You make stops in lagoons and off deserted beaches for snorkelling while tropical fish and sea turtles feed on the coral. You may also spot one of Ilha Grande's many wrecks in the surrounding waters, including a helicopter. After returning late afternoon, you can enjoy dinner on the beach under the stars, with nothing but the gentle sound of lapping waves and rustling palm leaves.
Day 14
Secluded Trails & Remote Beaches

Destination: Ilha Grande

A free day on Ilha Grande has many options. You can take the jungle trail or the boat and a short walk to Lopes Mendes, regularly voted as one of the very best beaches in Brazil. It is certainly not the only stunning beach on Ilha Grande, with the sands of Dois Rios, Aventureiro and Parnaoica featuring on island postcards. Reaching many of these beaches requires some effort, either by boat or by trails crossing the interior mountains. The reward is to spend the day almost alone on a beautiful Brazilian beach, a stretch of tropical paradise to yourselves. Be careful not to leave your return too late though - the jungle becomes very dark at sunset.
Day 15
Leaving Ilha Grande

Destination: Ilha Grande to Rio de Janeiro & Away

An early departure takes you back to the Ilha Grande pier for your boat back to Brazil! On arrival back on the mainland, you will be met at the marina for the transfer back along the Costa Verde to Rio de Janeiro. You will arrive with plenty of time to check in for your overnight international flight home, perhaps time to check your photos and your memories of this wonderfully exotic part of Brazil.
