Experience rhythm, culture, beaches and colonial architecture on a luxury Latin holiday
Pulsating with energy, optimism and a sense of fun, Brazil’s exoticism is powerfully seductive. Its huge size gives it the variety of a continent, rather than a country: from the stunning colonial architecture of Minas Gerais and Bahia to the cities that ring with music and dance, such as Rio and Salvador. The wide-open beaches of the north-east contrast with the peaceful bays and fishing villages near Rio; and the wonders of the Amazon Basin contrast with the remote beauty of the Pantanal. There are world-class hotels in Rio and Sao Paulo and stylish private beach houses in Angra, Paraty and Bahia; simple pousadas in the interior and authentic, working fazendas in the Chapada Diamantina. We tend to work with the smaller and most character-filled properties that best reflect the mood and style of their surroundings.
In the Amazon, we favour smaller camps, in order to gain access to primary forest – and for small groups, we can charter private river boats, which can explore incredible virgin beaches. Brazil’s size and variety make it difficult to get right without insider knowledge and our Destination Experts will guide you as to how much is manageable and exactly what to expect from the extraordinary variety of choices.

Stories from Brazil
"We had a lovely room with a view of the Falls. We kept the window open and in the morning were visited by Plush Crested Jays which perched on the window sill hoping for some breakfast."
"Our guide was brilliant and I learned a huge amount from him about the avian life of the Pantanal. He was also very knowledgeable about the wildlife in general...he made our time truly memorable."
"We did indeed have a most wonderful trip and all your arrangements went like clockwork. Is there anyone left in Brazil who DIDN’T know it was our anniversary?"
