Extra Day in Rio

Itinerary

Day 1: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Upon arrival in Rio, our representative will meet you and accompany you to the Copacabana Palace located on famed Copacabana Beach. The remainder of the day is at your leisure to explore the city, put your toes in the sand or just relax and enjoy dinner on your own at one of Rio’s many fine restaurants.

Day 2: Tour of Rio de Janeiro
After an early breakfast, enjoy a full-day tour of Rio's most famous sights. Begin high above the city at the statue of Christ the Redeemer atop 2,300-foot Corcovado Peak. The Art Deco statue is one of Brazil's cultural icons, standing 98 feet tall. It was chosen one of the New 7 Wonders of the World. Next, visit the charming district of Santa Teresa with its cobblestone streets and historic homes. Continue to Sugarloaf Mountain, named by the Portuguese during the heyday of the 16th-century sugar cane trade, who thought it resembled the blocks of sugar placed in conical clay molds—"sugar loaves"—to be transported on ships. The city of Rio was founded here at the foot of Urca Hill in 1565. Soar to the top of the monolith via the cable cars, with summit views revealing a panorama of Guanabara Bay and its islands, Santa Cruz Fortress and the gorgeous beaches of Niteroi. You will return to your hotel in the late afternoon to meet your Expedition Leader and fellow travelers at our welcome dinner this evening—the kick-off for your Pantanal nature adventure.
