Why we like it

Suited to both water sports enthusiasts and those who endeavour to unwind on the remote beaches of the north east, this trip offers an in-depth look into Brazil’s diverse and dazzling coastlines. In a place where snorkelers are rewarded with 50-metre water visibility, beach buggies prove the best way to navigate archipelagos and reefs form natural pools at low tide, we can tailor a bespoke trip that suits all activity levels and interests. Owing to the vastness of the country, reaching these beaches involves travelling far off the beaten track – but rest assured that these efforts that are duly rewarded with some of the finest vistas and marine adventures in the Americas. It is possible to visit a number of unique locations either in the company of an expert private guide or while travelling independently – amongst our favourites is Fernando de Noronha, the idyllic group of volcanic islands that only permits 500 visitors each day.

Don't forget, we will customise this journey to suit you.
