Episode 1 - The North East - 24th October
Exploring Lencois Maranhenses & Sao Luis
5 Days from £1,195 per person
Europeans settled here first and the subsequent heady mix of indigenous people, African slaves and Europeans helped to create many of the characteristics of modern Brazil – hot spicy food, music, festivals and dance. The region is known for its fantastic beaches and sand dunes and is home to historic towns and cities including Salvador and Sao Luis. A visit to the Lencois Maranhenses is a must on any visit to the North East.
Episode 2 - The Amazon - 31st October
Cruise The Amazon River
8 days from £1,695 per person
The Amazon and its tributaries make up the largest water system on the planet and Brazil’s Amazon is a paradise for bird watchers and nature lovers as well as offering opportunities to discover traditional ways of life still enjoyed by the tribes that call the Amazon rainforest their home. This 8-day itinerary offers the chance of cruising to remote areas of the river system aboard the MY Tucano, a modern ship designed in the style of old steamboats.
Episode 3 - The Road to Rio - 7th November
Vibrant Rio, Historical Salvador, Iguazu Falls
9 days from £2,595 per person
One of the world’s most vibrant cities is getting ready to host the Olympics in 2016. Rio de Janeiro offers a panorama of beaches, mountains and ocean, as well as the most famous carnival in the world. Take a cable car to the top of Corcovado Mountain and site of the Statue of Christ the Redeemer, where you can best appreciate the stunning setting. Rio is a 'must visit' place on any trip to Brazil and can be incorporated into many South America itineraries.
