    Relaxation at sea

    Wednesday, 11.03.2020

    Porto Belo/Brazil  

    Brazil awaits you in Porto Belo with one of its most beautiful beaches. The small bay with crystal-clear water is perfect for swimming and diving. The once German roots of the inhabitants will become clear on a trip to Blumenau*. Discover the famous German architecture with a trip through the centre or visit the colonial family museum which will enlighten you about the lives of the first German settlers. The cable car will take you up to Camboriu* – a journey over the rooftops of Brazil will show you the country of superlatives from a very different perspective. The outlying Ilha Porto Belo can be explored at your leisure. White sandy beaches, huge cliffs and lush vegetation characterise the landscape.

    Thursday, 12.03.2020

    Ilhabela/Ilha de Sao Sebastiao

    The island of Ilha de Sao Sebastiao is also blessed with a biodiversity that you will explore on a hike in the Atlantic rainforest*. A jeep tour to the waterfalls* will lead you into the unspoilt landscape, where the sight of the plunging waters will take your breath away.

    Friday, 13.03.2020

    Parati, from 7.00 to 20.00 hrs

    Parati is equally impressive: on a walk through historic Parati*, stylish houses with whitewashed facades and colourful windows reflect the riches brought by the great gold rush. Discover the exotic flora of the outlying islands on a schooner ride with snorkelling and swimming*.

    Saturday, 14.03.2020

    Ilha Grande

    The better part of Ilha Grande is a natural paradise of barely accessible jungle. On your hike to Lopes Mendes Beach*, follow in the footsteps of the Tupinamba Indians who hunted on these jungle paths: this hidden bay rewards your efforts with powder-white sand and azure water.

    Sunday, 15.03.2020

    Rio de Janeiro, from 7.00 to 22.00 hrs

    Pure lust for life awaits you in Rio de Janeiro, where Christ the Redeemer welcomes you from Corcovado Mountain. On the city tour and Sugarloaf Mountain* excursion, feel the heart of the city between wonderful colonial buildings and the monumental Maracana Stadium. The mountains above Copacabana Beach house the palace of the former emperor, Dom Pedro II, in Petropolis – the imperial city*. Enjoy the view from the imperial summer residence, or take a helicopter flight over Rio*.

    Monday, 16.03.2020

    Armacao dos Buzios, from 8.00 to 13.00 hrs

    Armacao dos Buzios prides itself on culinary temptation: discovered by Jacques Cousteau, this former fishing village is now home to gourmet restaurants. The beaches of Buzios* are best reached by schooner.

    Ilheus, from 8.00 to 18.00 hrs

    Revived by a swim in a secluded bay, the former cocoa heartland of Ilheus will sweeten your journey: historic Ilheus with a visit to the Tijuipe Waterfalls* offers unique church architecture and a chance to relax in the picturesque rock pool. Itacare and a boat trip on the Rio Contas* also exude the charm of the landscape. Head into the mysterious rainforest along this labyrinthine river.

    Thursday, 19.03.2020

    Salvador, from 8.00 to 18.00 hrs

    Explore the Afro-Brazilian way of life in Salvador – for example, on a walk through the old town of Salvador de Bahia*. The “sacred city” earned its UNESCO World Heritage status thanks to sights such as its imposing baroque cathedral. The colonial treasures in the hinterland* of Bahia hold a more subtle fascination: picturesque towns take you back to the age of sugar cane and diamond mining, while decorative buildings share their history.
