Rio de Janeiro

Brazil - Rio de Janeiro - arial med.jpg

Rio de Janeiro’s coveted location clustered around Copacabana and Ipanema’s sandy bays, dotted with peaks covered in lush rainforest, has earned it the nickname of the Cidade Maravilhosa or the Marvellous City.

Head up to Corcovado peak in the hills overlooking the coast to see the iconic and Statue of Christ the Redeemer. This is also great for climbing and hiking opportunities in the dense rainforest of Tijuca, and nearby is a beautiful bohemian district of old Portuguese colonial architecture.

Besides its famous landmarks, soak up city life cycling along the beach promenade, where the cariocas play beach volleyball, jog, play soccer and just hang out in their spare time. Learn to samba at one of its famous schools or see them practising for Carnival months in advance, discover local arts and crafts at the Hippy Market or take in a game of football at the Maracana stadium.
