Pantanal Wetlands & Rio de Janeiro Tour

Brazilian Exuberance

8 Days / 7 Nights
From 1340
* flights not included

Summary

The Pantanal is a vast wetland-approximately half the size of Texas, stretching across the borders of Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay. During the rainy season, from October to March, the entire Pantanal region floods with small patches of dry land, where most of the Pantanal’s wealth of animals migrate.

The waters begin to recede in March and remain low until the following rainy season. This flooding has made systematic farming in the region impractical, leaving an enormously rich feeding ground for wildlife. The Pantanal is a wildlife sanctuary filled with giant river otters, anacondas, iguanas, jaguars, ocelots, cougars, jacarés (caiman), deer, giant anteaters, black howler monkeys, zebu bulls and capybaras, the world’s largest rodents. The Pantanal is also home to over 600 species of birds, making them easy to spot. The richness and diversity of the Pantanal’s flora and fauna are absolutely unforgettable. Finish your tour with a visit to the stunning city of Rio de Janeiro!

Note: Activities at the Pantanal Lodges are subject to availability and may vary from one lodge to the other.

Day 1Arrival in Rio & Corcovado Tour

View of Christ the Redeemer from the base upward

Meet one of our representatives at Rio de Janeiro airport and transfer to your hotel. Begin your South American adventure with a visit to the Corcovado Mountain, where you will find one of the Seven Wonders of the World: Christ the Redeemer. This magnificent statue keeps an eye on Rio from an elevation of 710m (2,340 ft). Board the trenzinho (cogwheel railway) to the top of Corcovado Mountain for a bird’s eye view of the city, the bay, and the mountains!

Spend the rest of the evening at your leisure, relaxing on the beach or go to the bar and order the refreshing caipirinha, Brazil’s national drink.
