Brazil Destination guide

As the world leader in travel experiences since 1947, we connect you to the real Brazil in a way like no other. From the drumbeats of Carnival, to the jungle song of the Amazon, Brazil exudes an intoxicating rhythm. It’s the largest country in Latin America, where some of the world’s best beaches meet lofty mountains, churning waterfalls and the mighty Amazon, the world’s largest tropical rainforest. Brazil’s biodiversity is unrivalled, and there are few other places where you can spot such a collection of rare species, including pink dolphins, sea turtles, howler monkeys, and the coatis and toucans of the hand-planted Tijuca rainforest. The fun-loving Brazilians are equally diverse and a Brazil holiday with Trafalgar takes you deep into their spirited culture. Learn to dance the Samba, eat at a traditional churrascaria, and meet the locals of a hillside favela in Rio de Janeiro. From riding a cable car to the peak of Sugarloaf Mountain, or climbing Corcovado Mountain to see the wondrous Christ the Redeemer, we’ll take you on an exhilarating Brazilian adventure. Travel with us and unlock the infinite possibilities thanks to our exclusive Trafalgar Highlights.
