Our tours to Brazil
At Llamatours.co.uk, we currently offer four tours to Brazil, one of which combines the best of Brazil with a visit to Argentina.
Our tours take you to some of Brazil’s biggest experiences, offering something for nature lovers, for history buffs and for those of you who dream of stunning white sandy beaches.
Our tours to Brazil feature the following highlights:
Rio de Janeiro – an iconic city
Brazil is almost synonymous with Rio de Janeiro, its most famous city. The city enjoys the most stunning coastal location, with mountains, beautiful forests and fabulous beaches.
Rio is perhaps best known for its carnival and its beautiful beaches, Copacabana and Ipanema, where you will encounter lots of tanned beach bodies playing beach football or sipping a “caipirinha” at one of the many beach kiosks.
Rio has it all, and the city is a veritable melting pot of interesting sights, beautiful scenery and buzzing city life, oozing Brazilian joie de vivre.
The Christ the Redeemer Statue
One of Rio’s main attractions is the 38-metre-high and 1100-tonne Christ the Redeemer Statue, located on the top of Corcovado mountain.
The statue has been named one of the seven new wonders of the world, and watches over Rio from its location 710 metres above sea level.
The statue can be seen from all over the city, and you really get a feel of its greatness when you stand at the foot of the statue on top of the mountain. Prepare to enjoy stunning views of the Tijuca National Park, Guanabara Bay and Rio’s wonderful beaches from here.
Sugar Loaf Mountain
Sugar Loaf Mountain, or Pão de Açúcar in Portuguese, is one of Rio’s landmarks and consists of a 396-metre-high granite rock at the end of Copacabana Beach.
You get to the top via a cable car, first to the top of the mountain Urca and then on to Sugar Loaf, where a fabulous 360-degree view awaits you of Rio’s bustling metropolis, which has helped earn Rio de Janeiro its title of the “world’s most beautiful city”.
Other highlights in Rio de Janeiro
Rio is a veritable metropolis offering countless experiences.
- Visit the Botanical Gardens, containing more than 6,000 different plants and trees. You will also encounter myriad bird species here that have become accustomed to humans, making them easier to spot than in the wild.
- Brazil is home to the samba, and Rio de Janeiro is one of the best places to experience the seductive dance and music. Experience a colourful samba show, where you can see some of the costumes that are used for the annual carnival.
All of our tours take you to Rio and you have a treat in store for you. Rio de Janeiro is an iconic city where you enjoy the experience of a lifetime!
Iguazu Falls, or Foz do Iguaçu, is the world’s largest waterfall. Iguazu consists of 275 waterfalls, large and small, spread over almost 2.7 km and varying between 60 and 82 metres in height. Garganta del Diablo (or the Devil’s Throat) is the largest and best-known of the waterfalls.
Iguazu is located on the border between Brazil and Argentina. On our tours, you will experience the mighty waterfalls from both sides of the border, offering two very different experiences. On the Argentine side, you can see the waterfall up close, whereas the Brazilian side offers a more panoramic view of the waterfalls.
Both experiences are out of this world and a must-see on the tour.
Salvador – Where history and culture merge
Salvador is a charming historical city known as the city where Brazil was born. Originally a Portuguese colony, but today a fusion of cultures where you feel the Brazilian soul.
Salvador was one of the most important cities in the Portuguese empire. Today, the city offers a mix of historical experiences, with colonial pastel-coloured buildings, African cultures and a festive atmosphere.
Discover the old town, Pelourinho, where you will find many of the colonial buildings and churches. Pelourinho was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985.
Salvador is also known for its carnival in February. Where the carnival in Rio has its roots in samba, the carnival in Salvador has its roots in Axa, a mix of African and Brazilian pop music.
Brazil’s other highlights
Brazil has no shortage of attractions, and on our tours you can also experience:
- The Amazon, which is both the name of the world’s largest rain forest and the world’s largest river by discharge of water. Here, you can visit the Monkey Reserve, which helps return illegally-sold monkeys back into the wild.
- The Buzios peninsula, which was originally a small fishing village, but is now a popular seaside resort, where you will find shopping, culinary experiences and more than 20 fabulous beaches. Buzios is the perfect destination for a few days’ beach holiday
Combine Brazil and Argentina
One of our tours combines Brazil with a tour to Argentina.
In Argentina, you visit the capital, Buenos Aires, which, with its wide boulevards, is known as South America’s answer to Paris. Go on a tour of the city and discover the colourful La Boca (the working class neighbourhood), the oldest part San Telmo, and the famous cemetery Recoleta, where names such as Eva Perón (Evita) are buried.
Buenos Aires is not only the capital of Argentina, but the tango capital, too, and no trip to Argentina is complete before you have experienced the tango and the Argentine nightlife. So we take you out for an unforgettable evening, featuring a traditional Argentine dinner and a seductive tango show.
