At the North Eastern tip of Brazil is Jericoacoara, home to huge sand dunes and a deliciously laid back vibe. Further south, the small fishing village of Pipa perches on cliffs overlooking some of Brazil's finest beaches. Finally, 220 miles from the mainland east of Pipa lies the archipelago of Fernando de Noronha - a UNESCO Natural Heritage site - consisting of 21 small volcanic islands, isolated in the equatorial South Atlantic. All different, all wonderful.

Saskia and Hero are here to help give you the inside track.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • Finished off with coconut trees and miles of pristine white beaches, the landscapes of Jeri are out of this world
  • Road journeys take longer up here, so as a result, often the beaches form the highways - a great way to travel!

Original Highlight

Somewhat like the Galápagos, tourist numbers on Fernando de Noronha are strictly regulated due to its rich wildlife, both marine and on land.

A note on price

Brazil is the most expensive country in South America to visit. Unfortunately, it doesn’t represent great value for money – but it’s still one of our absolute favourites. A two week itinerary starts from £3,500 per person including flights – but if you’re hoping to cover a lot of ground, expect to pay a lot more. Learn more about our pricing
