Rio de Janeiro

Surrounded by white-sand beaches and lush rainforest, and bolstered by a towering statue of Christ, it’s no wonder that the people of Rio name their home cidade maravilhosa – meaning marvellous city. As well as uncovering the city’s architectural sights, from the sumptuous Opera House to the Cathedral, we’ll take you up Sugarloaf Mountain. In a cable car, you’ll have incredible views over the metropolis and the Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. Brazil supplies 65 per cent of the world’s coloured gems, and we give you the chance to watch jewellers at work as they transform rough gemstones into works of art. The caipirinha is Brazil’s national cocktail, so it wouldn’t be right to visit without trying to make your own – or at least drink one. On a visit to a traditional barbecue at a churrascaria, you can learn how to mix the perfect caipirinha.

Iguassu Falls

Bordering Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay, and spanning two miles along the Iguassu River, Iguassu Falls is one of the world’s most spectacular waterfalls. It is actually made up of more than 250 separate cascades, the most powerful of which is the Devil’s Throat. Each second, this spectacle spews 1,800 cubic metres of water over the rocks into a huge canyon below. The surrounding Iguassu National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a subtropical forest home to many endangered plants and animals. The giant otter and the giant anteater live here, as well as 250 species of butterflies, some of which are as big as your hand.
