From canoeing trips along the prestigious Amazon River, to admiring the colourful vibrancy of marketplaces and from walking the remote paths through the wildlife-rich Pantanal, to soaking in the samba spirit in the ever-exciting Rio, this 14-day adventure brings the best of both worlds.
We discover the place that houses the largest concentration of wildlife on the continent in the Pantanal, the longest river in the world (as well as the largest rainforest) in the Amazonas and one of the most breathtaking waterfalls on the planet at Iguacu Falls.
We complete our incredible South American experience by absorbing unforgettable sights and sounds in some of the continent's most notable cities.

We most enjoyed the "eco-tour" experiences in Manhaus and the Pantenal. We chose this BR1 itinerary because we love nature and wanted the outdoor experiences. They were wonderful. We found all the local guides to be excellent!! Their knowledge and excellent communication skills made all our excursions fabulous. They were always courteous and arrived before their appointed meeting times. We enjoyed the excellent quality of the meals; they were varied and healthy. Buffets are inevitable (and somewhat "dangerous" when traveling), but the quality of the food and the cleanliness of preparation resulted in no illness related to meals which Adventures Abroad was responsible for. Our leader repeatedly advised us of precautions we should take related to water consumption, both from a safety perspective and because of dehydration in a very warm climate. Rachel (tour leader) is a bubbly, cheerful and competent tour leader. Her laughter and calm demeanor gave us confidence in her leadership.

I loved the excursions on this trip. The local guides were excellent. Martin is the kind of trip leader that every company wants to have. He is knowledgeable, personable, organized and interesting. I think everyone in the group responded well to him. I really enjoyed having Martin as my trip leader. Great trip--I loved it!!

All excursions were well planned and very interesting.The evening meals were truly superb! Also the breakfast buffets were a joy to wake up to!!The flights by TAM were excellent, also the bus services were very pleasing. Our tour leader was always very helpful and reliable. She had a good sense of humour and good knowledge of Brazil.
