Luxury Holidays to Brazil: An Overview

Indisputably the 'in' country on earth right now, and somewhere that we at Original Travel can't get enough of. So, where to start your luxury holiday in Brazil? A few days in Rio is a minimum requirement, and will give you the best introduction to the thoroughly sensual rhythm of the country. After that, take your pick from several fabulous regions, all of which we've visited.

More than ten of the travel team here have been to Brazil in the last five years alone, exploring everywhere from the deserted beaches of Natal province to the incomparable rainforests in the Amazon. We, therefore, have the inside track on all the best places to suggest for your luxury holiday.

Rio is a must, but choosing what to do next is where our expertise really kicks in as the difficulty is filtering out what not to do, unless you've got a spare month or two. Rest assured that wherever you end up this will be one of the most memorable luxury holidays you ever take.

There's plenty more to explore on a luxury holiday to the world's fifth largest country - for example 4,500 miles of coastline teeming with tropical islands and home to ever more sophisticated new boutique hotels opening all the time. One thing we do guarantee - we think everyone who visits secretly wishes they were Brazilian.

Helicopter Ride Over the Iguacu Falls

For unrivalled views of one of the New Natural Seven Wonders of the World, take a helicopter ride over the Iguacu Falls. This is the only way to truly comprehend the vastness of these great falls, while also taking in the surrounding rainforest. The falls are made up of 275 different waterfalls crashing into the pools below, and with these views, this is a photo opportunity like no other.

Spot Jaguars in the Pantanal

The best chance of seeing jaguars in their natural habitat is in Brazil's Northern Pantanal. Spend a few days with expert local guides who will take you out at the best times so you can hopefully get a sighting of these big cats. Be sure to have your camera at the ready as this is a once in a lifetime opportunity not to be missed.

Visit the Island of Fernando do Noronha

The exclusivity and barefoot luxury of the island of Fernando do Noronha is a carefully guarded secret. The island is scarcely known about outside of Brazil and only 400 visitors are allowed here at one time, allowing it to maintain its unrivalled charm. What's more, there is some of the best diving in South America in the waters off Fernando do Noronha.

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 luxury holiday starts from £4000 per person including flights – but if you’re hoping to cover a lot of ground, expect to pay a lot more.
