Speak to a South America Tour Specialist
Day 1 Rio de Janeiro
Welcome to Rio! Settle in, feel the excitement in the air and get ready for the world's biggest party! Thrilling bursts of colour, electric energy and wild dancing all combine to create Rio's captivating Carnaval. Liberate your hips and join this epic celebration full of saucy South American passion and excitement.
Day 2 Rio de Janeiro
Get a sneaky behind-the-scenes look at Carnaval preparations, seeing the Sambadrome pre-party, checking out some smaller street parades and visiting the Gamboa district, the birthplace of Samba. There's also the opportunity to go to the football - an amazing event and unlike any ordinary game as singing, celebrating and music is just as important as the game!
Day 3 Rio de Janeiro
Catch a morning tram to Corcovado Mountain and take a train through lush rainforest to the Christ the Redeemer statue, seeing spectacular 360-degree views over Rio. Take some time to relax as then it's time for night one of Carnival and the party lasts well into the next morning! Get caught up in the frenzy of dancing, drumming, music and sequins, and watch Brazil's best samba schools wow audiences with their Samba skills.
Day 4 Rio de Janeiro
Relax on Ipanema beach, people-watch over coffee or simply sleep in after an amazing night. Visit Sugarloaf Mountain in the afternoon, taking a cable car over the treetops with spectacular views of the ocean and city below. Dress up fancy as it's time for night two of the Sambadrome - and this time it's possible to join in the parade! Taking part is glorious chaos and something that won't soon be forgotten!
Day 5 Rio de Janeiro
There's ample time to relax this morning before an afternoon visit to the fascinating favela project, Morrinho. Want more of Rio's spectacular party atmosphere? Tonight there's the opportunity to go to a Carnival Ball - glitter, glam and outrageousness is compulsory!
Day 6 Rio de Janeiro
Wander cobblestone streets, see colonial architecture and discover Rio's heritage on a morning tour to see another side of the city. Later, jump aboard a boat cruise on Guanabarra Bay and witness the beauty of Rio from the water. Watch the sun set over the bay with a glass in hand while swapping wild Carnaval stories with new friends.
Day 7 Rio de Janeiro
Farewell this magical city or perhaps stay on a few days to see more of colourful Rio.
