Explore Brazil’s stunning beaches and lush tropical interior on this unique trip from Rio to Brasilia.

Discover the country’s hidden secrets in Parque Nacional De Serra Dos Argaos and the beautiful colonial town of Ouro Preto.  Then follow the unspoilt coastline and crash out on some unspoilt and empty beaches or swim amongst amazing marine wildlife, before reaching Salvador, a bustling and vibrant city with an unusual yet energising mix of European, South American and African influences.  Finally head west to Lencois, a striking and colourful former diamond mining town that contrasts hugely with Brasilia, our final destination.  Purpose-built to serve as Brazil’s capital in 1960 it is a fascinating example of urban design with unusual and bizarre architecture.  There’s nowhere else quite like it!
