Day 1:  Arrive in Rio de Janeiro
Upon arrival in Rio, our representative will be waiting for you at the airport and he will take you to your hotel.
Day 2:  Rio (Full day Sugar Loaf & Corcovado)
Corcovado and Sugar Loaf are the two largest tourist attractions in the city of Rio de Janeiro. The Corcovado, that holds the Statue of Christ Redeemer, is the face of faith and sympathy of the Carioca people. Sugar Loaf, in turn, is a tourist complex in a privileged location because of its panoramic view. Our tour includes the ride out the hotel in the morning and the visit to the Sugar Loaf where we have a panoramic view of Guanabara Bay, Copacabana, Urca, Botafogo, Flamengo and its surroundings. The visit continues in a vehicle with air-conditioning through the Flamengo Park, Downtown and Maracana Stadium. In the afternoon we stop for lunch at a buffet restaurant (drinks not included) and then climb the Corcovado in the historical train (“Electric Car"), stopping a few feet away from the access stairs of the statue of Christ the Redeemer where we have a wide view of Rio de Janeiro, with its beaches and mountains. Finally, at the end of the tour, we pass by the beaches of Sao Conrado, Leblon, Ipanema and Copacabana. Tour in group basis. Overnight.

Then our trip begins at the Iguaçu National Park where we will drive through the lush, subtropical vegetation of the park en route to the falls. We will take a stroll on the trail that descends down the canyon, to offer panoramic views of more than 240 falls. We will then take the glass elevator up the cliff face for an exquisite view from the upper deck. The Iguassu National Park along with its “sister” park in Argentina form the most significant remaining rainforest in the southern cone of South America which along with the waterfalls, have been declared a National Heritage Site by UNESCO. For passengers staying at Hotel Das Cataratas, the tour departs from the hotel. We will end the tour with a visit to the artisans fair.

Day 5:  Iguazu (Argentine falls with great adventure tour)
Today, we will cross the Tancredo Neves Bridge, heading towards the Iguazu National Park in Argentina. At the entrance, a small train will take visitors on a tour through the park, making 2 stops. We will follow the pathways to the top of the waterfalls that provide spectacularly unique views of the ‘Cataratas’, amidst the abundant nature filled with orchids, colorful birds and other wildlife. The highlight of the tour is a visit to the suspended platform at the very brink of the ‘Garganta do Diabo’ waterfall (Devil’s Throat) – the largest fall in the park. This tour highlights the Argentinean side of Foz do Iguazu.

The Great Adventure Boat Tour (group basis)* is unique, and combines the whole essence of the 240 waterfalls and surrounding Jungle of the Iguassu National Park in one tour. The tour is offered daily, every hour, and departs from the Head Office or The Visitors Center. The tour starts by entering the jungle from the “Sendero Yacaratía” trail with special transportation that allows a panoramic view of the surrounding nature along with experienced and knowledgeable guides. After an 8 km truck ride, we will arrive at the Puerto Macuco Base, at a floating platform where the second part of the tour begins. With motor-boats, we will take visitors 6 km through the Canyon of the Iguazu River, through the rapids, up until the falls. After enjoying the view from the calm side of the San Martin Island, we will sail to the “Tres Mosqueteros” waterfall, where the Brazilian and Argentinean sides of the Garganta do Diabo waterfall (Devil’s Throat) can be clearly appreciated. After that, we will sail along the shore of the island until we get to the most exciting part of the tour where we face the San Martin waterfall, a wonderful and unforgettable experience, for it’s the largest waterfall any motor-boat can approach safely. When the tour is complete, passengers will disembark at the base of the lower circuit where visitors can follow the trail back to the park. *The tour lasts approximately 1.5 hours. Transfer back to your hotel.
