Day 1

Arrival in Rio & Christ the Redeemer Tour

Arrive in Rio de Janeiro, dubbed "The Marvelous City," where your guide will greet you and escort you to your hotel.
Rio is home to one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the statue of Christ the Redeemer. Admire this impressive 98-ft monument on a tour to Corcovado Mountain & Tijuca Forest. Board a cog train to get to the top of Corcovado, taking in the verdant Tijuca Forest and the bustling Carioca city along the way. Reach the Christ the Redeemer statue, the typical postcard picture of Rio.
Spend the evening at your leisure. You can visit Copacabana, the most emblematic beach of the city.

Day 2

Sugarloaf Mountain & Rio City Tour

After breakfast, head to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain, 1,296 ft (395 meters) above sea-level. Enjoy a panoramic view of the city and its surrounding beaches and forests. Also tour around the historical part of Rio de Janeiro.
The afternoon and evening are yours free; we recommend you opt for a Plataforma Samba Show, where thirty mulata dancers give riveting performances of Brazil's musical history, from slavery to the modern day, with Bossa Nova, samba, and Brazilian pop tunes.

Day 3

Transfer to Manaus

After breakfast, your guide will take you to the airport for the 5-hour flight to Manaus, the capital of Brazil’s Amazonas State. Upon arrival you will be escorted to your hotel.
Manaus is a city that thrives on exports from the Amazon region, including rubber and Brazil nuts. The city is situated on the banks of the Rio Negro, where the river joins with the Solimöes River. These two important rivers form the Amazon River.

Day 4

Arrival at the Amazon Lodge

Today your Amazon tour begins. Staying at an Amazon lodge is ideal for adventurous people who want to experience the largest rainforest on Earth. Depending on your departure time, you can have some free time in the morning to explore the city on your own or take a city tour.
At scheduled time, your guide will take you on a motorboat ride along the river to arrive at your lodge. Meet your guide and the staff to learn about the lodge’s facilities and the tours you are going to take the following days. One of them can be a night safari, in which you can discover the nocturnal fauna of the Amazon such as alligators, bats, and frogs.


Days 5-6

Amazon Excursions

Each day at the lodge includes all meals and all excursions with guides. After breakfast, your guides will take you on varying excursions, such as hiking through the jungle, visits to local caboclo villages, a trip to the Monkey Jungle exhibit, canoe rides, and more.
You're likely to see abundant wildlife and interesting flora. Your guides are naturalists experts and can point out medicinal plants, help you spot macaws and parrots, and identify the calls of various animals.
The evenings include gatherings at the lodge for dinner, drinks, lounging, educational presentations, and entertainment such as dancing and live music.

Day 7

Transfer back to Manaus & Rio

After breakfast, hop in the motorboat to return to Manaus. Along the way, enjoy a tour of the "Meeting of the Waters," where the Rio Negro and Rio Solimoes run side by side without mixing. Once in Manaus, head to the airport for your flight back to Rio.

Day 8

Departure from Rio

Spend your last day in Rio enjoying the sun on the beach, feeling the warm sea or refreshing with a delicious tropical juice. Afterwards, transfer to the airport to take a flight back home or to your next destination in South America.
For wildlife lovers, we highly recommend a trip to the Pantanal wetlands in southeastern Brazil, where birds and other wildlife are abundant and much easier to spot than in the thick Amazon jungle.
