This South American giant is naturally a major draw for travellers from all over the world who are keen to see icons like Christ the Redeemer, the Amazon Rainforest, the city-stopping Carnival and Copacabana Beach.
While it’s blessed with a wealth of natural wonders, from the Iguazu Falls to the Amazon River, and more animal and plant species than anywhere else on Earth, Brazil's cultural offerings shouldn't be overlooked either. It is home to the continent's best-preserved colonial towns at Olinda, Salvador and Ouro Preto, as well as a rich multicultural heritage that's best seen in the melting pot of modern São Paulo.
So where to begin? It all starts with a conversation. Get in touch with one of our experts and we can make recommendations on the best way to not just see Brazil, but truly experience it.
When to go
Brazil is a year-round destination, though depending on where you're planning to go, the winter months (June to August in the Southern Hemisphere) can bring excess rain and cold temperatures in southern regions, making other times of the year preferable. If you're planning a trip to escape the cold winter back home, December to March is Brazil's summer. Temperatures during this time can exceed 35 degrees Celsius, tourist areas become crowded and prices rise, but it can all be worthwhile to catch the unparalleled Rio Carnival in February and March. The Amazon region is a special case, where temperatures are relatively stable throughout the year, but most rain falls in summer, making the drier months of June to August the best time for exploring the rainforest.
