Brazil Holidays - Big, brash and jaw-droppingly beautiful

Brazil - Rio - Corcovado Pixabay med.jpg

With a vast stretch of coastline running from the Equator and through the tropics, it’s easy to see why Brazil is often thought of for its beaches – but beyond its coast lie many more treasures.

The land of beautiful people, iconic dances and music, a heady mélange of cultural influences and some of the world’s most ecologically diverse natural environments, it’s not hard to understand why the Brazilians are such an exuberant people. And with the excitement that surrounded the 2016 Rio Olympics, there’s never been a better time to go on a Brazil luxury holiday.

Rio de Janeiro is its most stunning city, centred around the iconic Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, and is, of course, host to one of the greatest parties in the world – Carnival. Beach life and football are two of the great passions of the cariocas, and there’s nowhere better to embark on your journey into Brazil’s hidden depths.

Brazil’s colonial past brought African cultural influences to the northern cities and beautiful, Baroque architecture to inland towns founded on the spoils of diamond mining. The indigenous communities of the Amazon basin maintain their traditional ways of life, although they remain under serious threat from agricultural development.

The country boasts some of the world’s most spectacular natural wonders, such as the thundering Iguaçu Falls, as well as vast swathes of wetland, home to large mammals, such as the elusive jaguar, and vivid birdlife, such as hyacinth macaws. Whether exploring dense jungle or spotting pink river dolphins, flying over stunning white dunes dotted with azure blue lakes, or heading to the beach to unwind, you’ll have thousands of miles to choose from whilst on a Brazil luxury holiday!

It can be hard to work out where to start when planning a holiday to this vast, spectacular country. We’ll help you discover your own deserted beach, be it a rustic inn on a remote island among simple fishing communities, or a fabulously decadent private house with its own chef and speedboat for exploring nearby coves.

We can take you into remote parts of the interior for some wildlife experiences you’ll never forget, and show you the incredible range of cultural and nature-based exploration opportunities Brazil has to offer. With access to only the finest guides, we’ll transform your journey, providing the inside track and showing you a different side to this exquisite land.

Our Brazil luxury holidays are tailored exactly to your preferences, so whether you want to learn to dance like a native or hike among forests and waterfalls, we’ll ensure your luxury holiday to Brazil is truly extraordinary.

We would love to hear from you. To find out more about tailormade luxury holidays to Brazil, or to obtain inspiration for a holiday, please contact us by phone or e-mail, or complete our online enquiry form
