    Rio Grande/Brazil, from 7.00 to 17.00 hrs

    South America for all the senses
    The many splendours of your expedition will become clear as soon as you reach Rio Grande. Historic buildings and modern feats of engineering are combined on a tour through Rio Grande*. Not far away from here is the city of Pelotas* with its splendid colonial buildings – a city that owes its riches to “charque”, a special kind of dried meat. On a walk through the swampy landscape of Taim*, you will gain an insight into the diverse flora and fauna of this ecological conservation area. With a bit of luck, you will spot capybaras, broad-snouted caimans, cormorants and ibises as well as kingfishers here.

    Friday, 20.07.2018

    Relaxation at sea

    Friday, 20.07.2018

    Ilha do Mel, from 7.00 to 13.00 hrs

    Ilha do Mel, or “honey island”, has sweet hidden treasures and is not usually found on cruise ship routes. On a walk along the coast, you will feel like you are one of the first explorers to discover the long beach and hidden caves.

    Friday, 20.07.2018

    Parati, from 13.00 to 18.00 hrs

    Picturesque Parati is truly a golden discovery. The architectural riches of the town, which you can see on a walk through historic Parati*, date back to the 17th century gold rush. On a jeep trip along the gold route*, you can discover the diverse wildlife in the Serra da Bocaina national park. 

    Friday, 20.07.2018

    Rio de Janeiro, from 6.00 to 23.00 hrs

    The heavenly kingdom of joie de vivre
    The upcoming Olympic Games to be held in Rio de Janeiro in August 2016 will bring even more life into the city. Beaches and samba, Copacabana and Ipanema – the charm of this huge city can be discovered on a city tour with a trip to Sugar Loaf*, past historic colonial buildings and modern skyscrapers. The tour will be rounded off with a cable car ride up to the granite cone of the mountain Sugar Loaf. You can see even more amazing views on a helicopter flight* over the city and the statue of Christ the Redeemer. Dom Pedro II built himself a “kingdom of heaven” at a height of more than 800 m in 1843: a visit to Petropolis, the former summer residence of the Brazilian emperor*, is a major attraction north of Rio.

    Friday, 20.07.2018

    Ilha Grande, from 6.00 to 17.00 hrs

    For centuries, the Tupinamba tribe lived on Ilha Grande, and their paths are still used today for hiking. The beautiful beaches and unspoilt natural beauty are shared with monkeys and butterflies.

    Friday, 20.07.2018

    Salvador, from 7.00 to 18.00 hrs

    The joining of cultures
    It’s impressive how the city’s Afro-Brazilian way of life and colonial past come together in Salvador. The street scene is shaped by the “combat dance”, which was introduced by African slaves. In historic Bahia*, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, baroque churches and historic buildings stand as a reminder of colonial times. You can marvel at other relics of this era in the area inland from Salvador* in Santo Amaro, which became rich thanks to tobacco and cotton farming, and the picturesque twin towns of Cachoeira and Sao Felix.
