This 12–day adventure takes you from the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain with its spectacular views of Rio de Janeiro to Salvador—known as the “soul of Brazil”— before you enter the very heart of the jungle with a cruise down the mighty Amazon. Rio highlights include a train ride to see the Christ the Redeemer statue and visits to the Copacabana and Ipanema. In Salvador you’ll see the historic Old Town, while exotic flora and fauna will be on display during your river cruise.
