Arrival at the Iguassu Falls airport on the Brazilian side and transfer to your hotel for accommodation.
We will enter the Iguacu National Park down the Cataratas highway through the rainforest to where the falls pathway starts, on the border of Brazil and Argentina where the Iguassu River drops into a giant horseshoe canyon. Descending a walkway, contemplate the many falls in all of nature’s exuberance, with a panoramic view of both sides – Brazilian and Argentinean. Than go the Argentinean side. From the visitation center a train leaves every 30 minutes with a stopover for the access to the upper and lower circuits and the Devil’s Throat. All the runways can be walked or only those that are found most convenient. (B/-/-)
After breakfast, transfer to the airport for flight to Rio de Janeiro!
Welcome to Rio de Janeiro, the city of mountains and sea, samba and carnival, and a relaxed way of life. You are met and privately transferred to your hotel. Rio is a city that will amaze, delight and fascinate you. It impresses at first sight with its climate and striking landscape. From the sun-drenched beauty of white sand beaches to sophisticated art and cultural scene, Rio offers an unbeatable combination.
This morning, visit the 120-foot statue of Christ the Redeemer atop the Corcovado Mountain. At the station, board the cogwheel train for a 20 minutes ride up the mountain to the statue’s base. At an elevation of 2,400 feet, the sculpture’s outstretched arms spread above the spectacular 360° panorama of Rio. Than we drive to the “Praia Vermelha” (Red beach), to take the two stage car up to the top of Sugar Loaf (270m), which grants the entrance to Rio’s harbor and Guanabara Bay. The Italian made cable car holds 75 passengers and each of the two stages takes two minutes. The first stage is Morro da Urca with 170m, with a snack bar, amphitheater and helicopter-point. The second stage goes on the Sugar Loaf itself, thus named for its resemblance to the loaves of sugar used by the Portuguese at the time of the city’s discovery. Return to your hotel.
Transfer out to Rio’s international airport for your flight to home.
