From the heights of Rio's Corcovado Mountain to the turbulent waters of the Rio Negro, this holiday offers excitement and exploration, beaches and wildlife - not to be missed!
Spend three days exploring vibrant Rio de Janeiro, including a guided visit of Christ the Redeemer and Sugarloaf Mountain. Leave the beaches behind and head to the jungle city of Manaus, famous for its grand opera house and the famous 'Meeting of the Waters' where the Solimoes and Negro Rivers meet to form the Amazon.
It's now time to explore the Amazon! Board the lovely riverboat, Tucano, to spend 8 days exploring almost 200 miles of the Negro River and its tributaries. You'll have the chance to go out in small motor launches, explore the riverbanks and forest on foot and look for nocturnal wildlife, always with the creature comforts of the Tucano waiting for you on your return.
