Start your adventure in Rio de Janeiro, known as the "Cidade Maravilhosa" (the Marvelous City). Explore the Floresta da Tijuca, the largest urban forest in the world, take a cable car to the iconic Sugarloaf Mountain and relax on Copacabana beach.

When is the best time to visit?
Travel to Brazil in April through June or August through October. In July, major tourist draws are often crowded since local schools are on vacation, and the summer months from December through February are often too warm for comfort.
Where to go in Brazil?
Learn how to truly celebrate something in the legendarily vibrant city of Rio de Janeiro or relax in the much slower-paced Santa Teresa. From the country twang of Sertanejo, the reggae of Maranhão, the carimbó music of the Amazon, Brazil is a country to be experienced through the rhythms of its people.
How many days do I need?
While travelers might be tempted to visit Brazil in less than a week, the variety of experiences and destinations within this large country should be experienced over at least twice that amount of time.
From the Corcovado to Sugarloaf Mountain and Copacabana to Ipanema, this whirlwind tour will sweep you through the best, most famous, and most beautiful beaches, neighborhoods, and mountains that Rio de Janeiro has to offer. Cycle along the endless beaches, hike the largest urban forest in the world, and learn how to cook with Brazilian flare and flavors.
Trek one of Brazil's most beautiful routes through the lush Serra dos Órgãos National Park — from Petrópolis to Teresópolis. The trail is known for its breathtaking vistas, steep climbs, and high difficulty rating, so get ready for an incredibly rewarding challenge!
Discover Rio de Janeiro — a vibrant and diverse city where emerald blue water, green inky forest, and rocky mountains meet. Explore the lush Costa Verde and the picturesque colonial town of Paraty. Visit the island of Ilha Grande to relax on dreamy beaches and enjoy a private boat tour. Get up close to the magnificent Iguazu Falls in all their thundering glory.
The surreal landscape of Lençóis Maranhenses National Park is one of Brazil's many treasures, and this 6-day hiking itinerary will take you straight into the heart of this natural phenomenon. Rise early to catch stunning sunrises and trek through tall, white sand dunes dotted with thousands of freshwater lagoons that form in the rainy season. Enjoy quiet evenings and drift to sleep in a swaying hammock amid the sounds of nature.
Rio de Janeiro isn't called Cidade Maravilhosa (Marvelous City) for nothing. For a mega-metropolis, it boasts some of the most beautiful natural landscapes in the world. Whether you prefer to stay in the city or venture out, there are plenty of ways to spend a day: visit Petrópolis, lounge on the beaches of Buzios, or hike to instagram-worthy viewpoints within the city limits.

Amazon, Brazil - Mar 17 - Mar 20, 2019
We had the most amazing experience with KimKim and our local specialist, Lucianna, was awesome. She took on board all of our requirements and arranged a perfect trip. We adjusted our dates a few times and Lucianna was able to adapt the plans quickly. She arranged every detail and shared these clearly with us. The trip far exceeded our expectations and we spent an amazing few days exploring the Amazon with plenty of activities - we even managed to fit in an overnight camping trip! Thank you so much!

Life changing experience,
From the moment I arrived at the Nattrip lodge I knew it was going to be a great experience. Lucas and Guilherme ( the guides ) were very welcoming and even shared some of their home cooked diner. The trekking started the next day, and I have to say, the trekking days were absolutely amazing!! Both guides were very knowledgeable, caring and fun. The trek can be physically demanding at some points, but worth every effort. Actually most of the time it felt effortless... read more
Trek brazil's petrópolis-teresópolis crossing - 3 days, Brazil - Jan 4 - Jan 6, 2019
The views, trails, wildlife, plant life and accommodation were utterly fantastic and alone are enough to leave anyone astounded by what Rio and the mountains surrounding the state have to show; but we can’t give enough gratitude towards our guides, Lucas and Thalles for their constant humility, insight, care, humour and undying humanity. We trekked through the clouds, through the heat, through the mud and through the rain with total confidence and total assurance - we often sang. The days and... read more
