Discover our Brazil Tours and Travel Guide

Visit Rio de Janeiro's Copacabana Beach, Christ the Redeemer statue, Iguazu Falls, San Martin Island and more.

Think Brazil, think the world-famous carnival in Rio de Janeiro, the Christ Redeemer Statue, Copacabana Beach, an abundance of coffee, and an insatiable passion for football. This vibrant country is alive with colour, festivals, music and dance. Breaking a few records in the landscape stakes, Brazil boasts the largest beach in the world - Praia do Cassino Beach (stretching over 150 miles or 240km), and is also the world’s longest country, spanning an impressive 2,800 miles (4,400km). In fact, Brazil is so colossal, it has three different time zones and shares borders with Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, French Guiana, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay and Venezuela.

What is Brazil known for?

Must-see landmarks

The former capital city of Rio de Janeiro offers spectacular sightseeing opportunities. Sugarloaf Mountain is a great place to start a Brazilian adventure, and can be accessed via cable car. At a height of 220 metres above sea level, spectacular views of lush forests, majestic mountains and glorious beaches await you at the top. In contrast, deep within Rio's favelas, of which there are over 1,000 in total, a different side of Brazil can be experienced, amid its cascades of shanty towns that cover the city's hillsides. Observing the typical lifestyle of those living in a favela gives perspective on the Brazilian community and way of life. Music is so important to Brazilian culture that a visit to the iconic Maze jazz club, regularly frequented by celebrities, poses the possibility of brushing shoulders with the world’s super rich and will give you a flavour of this beloved sound. Fabulous views of Rio and Guanabara Bay are an added bonus while enjoying entertainment at Maze.

Outside of Rio, taking the train up Corcovado Hill, leads to the open arms of Christ the Redeemer – a 38-metre tall statue that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and stands at a mighty 710 metres above sea level. While exploring in Brazil, be sure to see a dance show at the electric Ginga Tropical, giving you a medley of different music and dance styles originating in Brazil, with everything from samba to forró.
