The unmissable south american destination, Brazil is the land of carnivals, but not only! From the idyllic beaches of the northeast, to the hiking trails of the Minas Gerais, the whole of Brazil is a constant enchantment for the senses.
A visit to Brazil should of course include a stay in Rio de Janeiro! The 'marvelous city' is the object of much fascination not only because of its breathtaking panoramic views, endless beaches and geological treasures: it is also because of its pleasant way of life, embodied by the samba and the bossa nova, two musical styles native to this south american metropolis.
Another favourite destination is the northeast of Brazil.

Moving away from the coastline, you will also discover the majestic landscapes of Chapada Diamantina natural park, which will provide you with some unforgettable hikes.
One lifetime is not enough to explore all the treasures of this vast country! A flight to Sao Paulo, will immerse you in an extraordinary melting pot of a city. A visit to Brazil is also the opportunity to explore a land of wild and diverse natural beauty.
