    Ilha do Mel (subject to official approval)

    A treat for explorers is Ilha do Mel – the “honey island” is a premiere destination for the BREMEN and a rare destination on cruise routes. Explore virgin territory on the seemingly endless beach or the mystical caves.

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Ilhabela/Ilha de Sao Sebastiao

    Your feeling of being on a true expedition intensifies in the bountiful natural surroundings of Ilha de Sao Sebastiao with waterfalls, steep peaks and dense virgin forest. Explore the island from Ilhabela on a Jeep tour* or on a walk through the rainforest*. You might even stumble upon buried pirates’ treasure.

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Parati, arrival 7.00 hrs

    Does the gold fever of the 17th century thrill you? Then you should take a ride by jeep along the gold route* from picturesque Parati. Architectural riches are revealed on a walk through historic Parati*. The BREMEN stays here overnight so that you can enjoy the evening atmosphere in the small side streets with cafes full of character.

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Parati, departure 6.00 hrs
    Ilha Grande

    Virtually untouched natural beauty complete with sagui monkeys, butterflies and incredible beaches can be experienced on Ilha Grande. Once an island of the Tupinamba people, today it is a premiere destination for the BREMEN.

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Rio de Janeiro, arrival 7.00 hrs

    Time to spend in Rio and timeless natural beauties
    Beach and Samba, Copacabana and Ipanema – on two days you will get to know the moving sides of Rio de Janeiro. The contrasts between historic colonial buildings and modern skyscrapers are shown to you on a city tour with Sugar Loaf Mountain*. After the cable car ride the nearly 400 m high granite cone "sweetens" your day with fantastic views. For similarly far-reaching views the statue of Christ the Redeemer high atop Corcovado* welcomes you with open arms – more celestial perspectives can only be provided on a helicopter flight*. If you prefer to have both feet on the ground, discover one of the greatest urban jungles in the world out and about in the Tijuca rainforest* with birds, iguanas and monkeys.

    Armacao dos Buzios

    Entirely influenced by nature, another destination for the BREMEN is Armacao dos Buzios. The one-time sleepy fishing village Buzios* has retained its charm. The idyllic beaches were made famous by Brigitte Bardot and Jacques Cousteau; a snorkelling experience* amidst brightly coloured fish would certainly only confirm the appeal of these beaches.

Entirely to the taste of those interested in culture, there are forays in the footsteps of cocoa barons* through the colonial old town and a visit to a plantation. Alternatively, experience a rainforest safari* on jungle trails and suspension bridges or a canoe trip on the Rio Contas*.

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Salvador, from 7.00 to 18.00 hrs

    African roots meet colonial heritage
    Allow yourself to be infected by the zest for life, beat and dancing of the inhabitants of Salvador. Their African roots come together in the “battle dance” to make an acrobatic spectacle on the visit to a capoeira school*, while the colonial heritage can be seen in historic Bahia* in magnificent buildings and baroque churches.
