Rio de Janeiro -it's green hills, blue sky, rocky mountains, beautiful bays, islands, beautiful beaches. The second most populous city in Brazil and one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Hotels located on the most famous black-and-white tiled promenade of Copacabana, Leblon, Ipanema.

Ilha Grande –the impressive island where you can practice any water sport, such as windsurfing and kite surfing, scuba diving, water skiing, and a "banana" boat ride. During cruises, you can observe a lot of green islands. Usually, boats swim in the bay with the amazingly clear turquoise waters that you can see the bottom at 5-7 meters, you can drive off the boat and watch the underwater world of exotic fish.

Paraty–historical city Paraty with its cobblestone streets and churches in a beautiful surrounding countryside was founded in 1667 and grew big because of its many plantations of sugarcane. It even got famous because of produced the best cachaca (local strong alcoholic drink).

In the 18th century, during yellow fever, Paraty was used as an important port for the transportation of gold and precious stones from the state of Minas Gerais to Portugal. However, constant attacks of pirates obliged the port to be moved elsewhere, bringing Parati into an economically isolated position. Only in the ’70s when the railroad Rio-Santos was constructed, Paraty received visitors again: this time they were tourists that came to admire the historical city in a tropical paradise.

Day 1 – Rio de Janeiro

Arrival day in Rio de Janeiro, accompanied by the guide, we will bring you to your hotel and spend the night relaxing. Maybe you will want to see and feel the lush life of the city, or if you want to be alone with yourself, then, for this there is always a corner somewhere in between the palm trees, sand, and ocean waves.

Day 2 – Rio de Janeiro

Breakfast at the hotel.

Our guide picks you up at your hotel in the morning and takes you to the bottom of the Corcovado Mountain. Here you board the little train that takes you through tropical rainforest, passing tropical trees and exotic fruits. A short walk from the final station you find yourself at the foot of impressive Christ the Redeemer (Cristo Redentor). Enjoy the spectacular views over Rio de Janeiro.

After Cristo Redentor, our guide will take you to the red beach (Praia Vermelha) from where we take a cable car up to the Urca mountain. From here an amazing view of Rio opens up before us. We take yet another cable car up the Pao de Acucar Mountain (Sugarloaf). From here we have a wonderful view of the city nestling between the mountains and the sea, and the sight of the sun going down over Copacabana beach is magical. After riding down the cable car, we will discover the historical part of Rio.

A morning or afternoon tour from Rio to the Tijuca Rain Forest, in an open jeep. The four-hour jeep tour includes an easy one-hour hike, giving you the chance to spot monkeys, birds, butterflies, and tropical flora. You'll be amazed by the remarkable contrast of a tropical rainforest right in the middle of a big city. At the Tijuca Rain Forest, you'll take an eco trek lasting approximately one hour, following an easy trail. There's no better way to experience the living rain forest.

You'll have many spectacular photo opportunities on this rain forest jeep tour from Rio de Janeiro. On your tour you'll pass the Cachoeira dos Primates (monkey's waterfall), take photos at Vista Chinesa (Chinese view), hear about the important reforestation program, and learn the importance of the Mata Atlantica (Atlantic Forest) ecosystem.

Day 6 – Ilha Grande - Paraty

Breakfast at the hotel. Today you have the option, which is not included in the price, to participate in a trek to Lopes Mendes beach. The beach is the most famous beach on the island and one of the most beautiful on the entire Brazilian coast. The three-kilometer-long beach has fine sand and incredibly clear water in many shades of blue. In the afternoon you will be transferred back to the pier and will take the ferry back to the mainland of Angra dos Reis. From Angra dos Reis you will be brought to Paraty and you will check-in at Hotel.

Set amidst jutting peninsulas and secluded beaches, with a backdrop of steep, jungled mountains plunging into an island-studded bay, Paraty is one of Brazil's most appealing and exquisitely preserved historical towns. Paraty's colonial center is remarkable not only for its centuries-old architecture but also for its lack of vehicles and traffic.

The irregular cobblestone streets are closed to motor vehicles, making it a delightful place to stroll about. Elegant white buildings adorned with fanciful multi-hued borders and latticed windows blend harmoniously with the natural beauty that envelops the town.

Day 7 - Paraty

Having enjoyed the opulent breakfast at the Pousada, we will board our schooner for a 4hours ride off the coast, taking us into a world of tropical islands and beaches of breathtaking beauty. While anchoring on pristine beaches, nobody resists a swim in the crystal clear waters. Upon returning to Paraty we will have the afternoon and the evening at leisure. You may want to check out the many boutiques displaying a wide array of beautiful handicrafts and Brazilian-styled leisurewear.

As another option still is the puppet show of the famous "Teatro Contadores de Histórias", with openings on the weekends and daily during high season.
