With magnificent beaches, glorious sunny weather, rich ecosystems, vast rain forests and music-fuelled cities, Brazil bears an astounding array of wonders, where the only limit to a journey is your imagination. Spectacular, sassy and simply unforgettable.

"There are so many astonishing aspects to Brazil – endless carnivals, gorgeous beaches, unique culture and amazing wildlife."

Brazil has captivated travelers for at least 500 years. Powdery white-sand beaches, lined with palm trees and fronting a deep blue Atlantic, stretch for more than 4000 miles. Dotting this coastline are tropical islands, music-filled metropolises and enchanting colonial towns.

Inland, Brazil offers dazzling sights of a different flavour: majestic waterfalls, red-rock canyons, and crystal-clear rivers – all just a small part of the natural beauty.
