Itinerary In Detail

Start your journey in the hub of beautiful beaches, buzzing nightlife, stunning scenery, and captivating culture – Rio de Janeiro.

Take a full-day tour of the city, starting with a trip up Sugar Loaf Mountain. A cable car will whisk you up the mountain – stopping at the midway point, Urca Mountain, where guests can enjoy beautiful gardens and a lookout before continuing up. Peaking at 1,300 feet, the pristine ocean beaches come fully into view from the mountaintop. 

Spend another day exploring the busy city on a trip to see the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue. The 120-foot statue atop the Corcovado mountain overlooks the city. Take a cogwheel train for a 15-minute ride up the mountain to the statue’s base. At an elevation of 2,400 feet, marvel at the panoramic views of Rio’s beaches, buildings, bridges, and more. 

Enjoy a day to yourself relaxing and unwinding at one the Rio de Janeiro’s beautiful beaches. Between the white sand and bright blue waves, what’s not to love? If you’re up for a more active day, hike or bike through the scenic city, shop at the local markets, and sample some Brazilian cuisine. 

Good Life Expeditions also offers more off the beaten path options that expose you to Brazil’s undeniable wealth disparity. Known around the world for its favelas, or slums, Good Life Expeditions can help you experience the realities of low-income Brazilian families in a respectful manner that will be a learning experience for both you and the communities you visit. Rather than taking you on a tour, we can connect you with individual families or communities through our partner non-profit MEDLIFE.

Next, you’ll transfer to the breathtaking Iguazu Falls. Bordering Brazil and Argentina, the falls are a magnificent natural wonder that you can experience from both sides. On average, 1,500 cubic meters (52,972 cubic feet) of water tumbles down the falls every second. 

Located in Iguazu National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, spend two days basking in the beauty of this gorgeous ensemble of waterfalls ranging from 40 to 80 meters in height. From the Brazilian side, enjoy panoramic views. The falls form a giant sideways question mark from this vantage point, and an elevator is available to take visitors from the bottom of the falls to the river’s level. From Argentina, visitors can explore a maze of walkways, some taking you within arm’s reach of the falls.

After a week of fun-filled adventure return to the airport for your international connection or onward travel!
