Brazil tours

Keen on Brazil tours? Go for it! Especially if you love liveliness as much as beautiful scenery. If you visit Brazil, you’ll soon discover that it is a country of extremes. You’ll find amazing beaches, hear the roar of the Iguazu Falls and see the mighty Amazon. The Amazon region could well be the most fascinating nature reserve in the world and is often called ‘the lungs of the world’. In sharp contrast to this peaceful environment stand the dazzling cities of Brazil.

Your Brazil travels can be as varied as you like but it should include Rio de Janeiro, also known as ‘Cidade Maravilhosa’, the marvellous city). It has 37 sandy white beaches with gorgeous bays where you can easily relax. Rio de Janeiro is renowned for being a vibrant city with a lively population which will lift your spirits through music and dance. You can also visit the famous statue of Christ the Redeemer- very impressive. Leave this sparkling city and travel Brazil to discover former colonial villages where you can learn the history of the 19th century gold prospectors who settled there.

If you travel in Brazil, you’ll undoubtedly enjoy the gorgeous nature and fascinating fauna. Innumerable waterfalls in Foz do Iguaçu, immense mountains, unique natural stone formations in Bonito and tropical rain forest you’ll encounter all of this during your trip. In the Pantanal you’ll be face-to- face with caimans, anacondas, toucans and numerous other exotic animals. They’ll be at the heart of some breath-taking and lasting memories of your Brazilian holiday!

There’s no shortage of beautiful beaches in Brazil. One of the most famous of which is Copacabana. Brazilians spend a lot of time at the beach, usually playing one sport or another. On Ilha Grande, an island close to the coast, you’ll find another gorgeous beach- Lopez Mendes. This beach is often described as the most beautiful in Brazil. A place to relax during your Brazil travels or if you’re feeling energetic, try crossing the dense rainforest.

So, for exciting cities and incredible nature and scenery, come along on one of Shoestrings Brazil tours!
