Rio, Uakari and Fernando de Noronha

From the excitement of Rio to the Amazon jungle teeming with life and an idyllic island escape, all in just two weeks

14 days from £3200pp plus international flights.

Rio, the Amazon and the best beaches in Brazil, with plenty of time fully to experience each place.

  • Soak up the atmosphere and excitement of Rio
  • Cruise to the amazing Meeting of the Waters
  • Stay at a floating lodge in the Amazon
  • Take walks and boat rides in the jungle
  • Fernando de Noronha's gorgeous beaches and islands
  • Enjoy the relaxed pace of island life

From the excitement and buzz of Rio, to the heart of the Amazon with its abundant wildlife and on to the perfect island getaway, this holiday is a feast for the senses.

Spend three days exploring vibrant Rio de Janeiro, including a guided visit of Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) and Pao de Acucar (Sugarloaf Mountain). Then travel to the jungle city of Manaus, famous for its grand opera house and the 'Meeting of the Waters' where the Solimoes and Negro Rivers meet to form the Amazon.

From Manaus, enter the Amazon proper. It is a one hour flight to Tefe and a boat ride to Uakari Floating Lodge located in the Mamiraua Sustainable Development Reserve. The excursions depend on the season, with canoe excursions in the wet season through the flooded forest, and dry season excursions by canoe to explore channels, creeks and lakes, as well as forest hikes. There are also visits to local villages, evening presentations about the Reserve, and night hikes/canoe trips.

The wildlife is abundant, and it is a strange experience in the flooded season to paddle through the flooded forest and observe species such as sloths, Red howler monkeys and the endemic red-faced white Uakari monkey at close range, whilst pink river dolphins, manatees and caiman swim amongst the submerged trees.

Time to relax! You'll be whisked a world away, to the northeast of the country and your very own island paradise. You have three full days to enjoy the beautiful scenery and marine life of Fernando do Noronho, not to mention its outstanding beaches and crystal clear waters, ideal for swimming, snorkelling and diving. A superb end to your journey through Brazil.
