Luxury Travel Brazil

Please note: this private Brazil tour is an example, as all of our luxury journeys are custom-made.

Rio de Janeiro (3 nights)

Begin your luxury Brazil tour in Rio de Janeiro, where you will be greeted by your personal host and taken to one of Rio’s 5-star luxury properties. Options include the iconic Copacabana Palace or the avant-garde Fasano hotel in Ipanema.

Accompanied by your personal guide, start off your luxury Rio tour by biking along the picturesque beaches of Ipanema, Leblon and Copacabana. The next day, enjoy a hiking excursion on one of the many accessible mountains that surround Rio, such as Pedra Bonita, Pico da Tijuca and Pedra Gavea.  Later, head to the Lagoon of Rio where you will board your private helicopter to tour the “cidade Maravilhosa.” Circle around Christ the Redeemer (Mount Corcovado) and end your trip at the base of Sugarloaf Mountain where you will continue by cable-car to this landmark which offers incredible views of the city and bay.

On your third day, learn about Rio’s colonial past which was originally the seat of the Portuguese Empire and later visit the eclectic artists’ neighborhood of Santa Teresa. Continue your discovery of this great city with a visit to the Pequena Africa neighborhood, where you can visit a number of sites that highlight the African history and legacy in Rio de Janeiro. 

Without a doubt, no trip to Rio is complete without music! On one of your evenings, stop at Rio Scenarium to enjoy Rio by night and listen to soothing live bossa nova or lively samba music.

Fernando de Noronha (4 nights)

Fly to Fernando de Noronha via Recife. Upon arrival, your personal host will take you to your luxury bungalow at Pousada Maravilha that overlooks the ocean. Discover the magic of this hidden archipelago off the Brazilian coast, beginning with an introduction by your personal guide. End your first day by watching the sun set over the ocean as you sip on a welcome cocktail.

No luxury trip to Fernando de Noronha is complete without exploring the volcanic island’s beautiful beaches. Three of them have been voted the best beaches in Brazil: Baia dos Porcos, Baia do Sancho and Praia do Leão. These pristine surroundings are ideal for snorkeling, hiking, surfing, walks along the beach, and diving.

You can also join an esteemed biologist on one of world’s most beautiful beaches, home to a large concentration of marine life. Here, learn about the conservation efforts as you catalogue the many species which inhabit the area, including the critically endangered hawksbill sea turtle. Then, explore the archipelago by dune buggy and relax aboard your private luxury motorboat, where you’ll be served fresh sushi and cocktails as dolphins frolic nearby.

Those seeking adventure can experience the thrill of “planasub” snorkeling: you’ll be pulled behind the boat at a low speed, propelling yourself with a board almost 30 feet underwater to see schools of colourful fish and sea turtles. Venture deeper below sea level as you scuba dive (with visibility of up to 150 feet) with an expert dive master, or surf on the ocean’s surface. At low tide, spot the local fauna in lagoons and tide pools at sites such as Rocas Atoll.

In the evenings, enjoy massages and delicious meals, including a special dinner at a local fisherman’s home.
