Brazil Holidays

South America’s largest country is also big on variety. Tread carefully through dense rainforests on one of our group tours, soak up the samba spirit on the streets of Rio or go back in time and visit historic Salvador.

Brazil’s incredible landscapes, rich history and extraordinary wildlife are as diverse as the country is vast. Stretching from the Amazon basin in the north to the colossal Iguazu Falls in the south, and from the wildlife-rich wetlands of the Pantanal in the west to the 2,000 beaches along the coast, there is plenty to explore.

The Brazilians are innately relaxed which adds to the quintessentially Latin American vibe and with direct flights from the UK, you can be in buzzing Rio with all of its iconic sights by nightfall.

What to expect on your Brazilian holiday

Brazil is the largest country in South America (it’s more than twice the size of India) and thus distances are huge and careful planning is needed when devising a holiday.

There is more to Brazil than sun, sea, and samba. It is home to the greatest rainforest in the world and the world’s largest tropical wetlands, the Pantanal. But more than the abundance of its natural wonders, it is the extraordinary diversity and richness of the people of Brazil that will strike you when on holiday in Brazil. With a strong African influence, music and colour stimulate the senses and lift the soul. A far cry from Britain on a wet winter day.
