This holiday takes you to the south coast of Brazil, where you travel by road, rail and sea, allowing you to experience the scenery, culture and heritage of the region. You have a chance to enjoy laidback days on the beach, take a train ride through the Atlantic forest and explore coastal towns. It's the perfect mix of activity and relaxation.

You start in Curitiba, a buzzing city combining striking architecture, large parks and bold urban planning. Your hotel is a good example of the stylish design that characterises the city. From here you go back in time as you board the Serra Verde Express which travels along a track that dates back to 1885, and passes through a large area of Atlantic rainforest. Sit back and enjoy the ride! Morretes, your destination, is a charming colonial town and you explore with a guide who also takes you to the coast for views of Antonina Bay.

The delightfully named Ilha do Mel, Honey Island, is your next stop, Blissfully free of cars and motorbikes this picture postcard island is a gorgeous place to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Your pousada faces a pretty beach and is owned by a professional chef. Explore on foot, by bike or boat, laze on a beach, try out your surfing skills and dine on fresh seafood.

That's pretty hard to top, but Praia do Rosa succeeds. The curved stretch of sand extends for 3kms and is flanked by low sand dunes and forest, and is often used as a back drop for photo shoots. There's time to top up your tan, go surfing, swim the lagoon, go hiking and horse riding, or you can enjoy some relaxed downtime by the hotel's infinity pool.

This holiday makes a great add-on to a longer Brazil trip and can be a holiday in its own right. It starts in Curtiiba and ends in Florianopolis, both with airports with good connections to other parts of Brazil, making it easy to link with another holiday itinerary.
