Spanning from the Amazon Basin to the massive Iguaçu Falls in the south, Brazil is a country of powerful contrasts, from its world-famous Carnival and colorful clash of cultures to its awe-inspiring jungles, slinky jaguars and perhaps the most dramatic waterfalls in the world. Rio de Janeiro, best known for its iconic Christ the Redeemer statue overlooking the city, is a must visit, but the great falls of Iguazu, the Pantanal wetlands, and the mighty Amazon River are really where it's at…

There’s wonderful wildlife to watch in the wetlands; mountains to conquer around Sertão; and then there’s the Amazon. Roughly the size of Western Europe, it’s vast. Here you can sleep in a rainforest lodge, or float along on a classic double-decked wooden Amazon riverboat looking out for pink dolphins as you go. Or cycle along the Costa Verde, stopping every now and then for a well-earned caipirinha on the beach.
