From the vibrant buzz of its megacities to quiet ranch retreats, secluded beaches to alpine hiking, there’s so much more to Brazil than Copacabana and Carnival
Brazil knocks many countries out of the park in terms of its natural appeal. Endless beaches, remote valleys, iconic cities and emerald rainforests are just the tip of the iceberg in terms of Brazil’s major points of interest. Allow your awe to be struck by exuberant festas, eloquent cultural relics of the colonial era and by the Brazilians themselves. Your hosts are generally as open and fun loving as you’d expect. The natural diversity on display in Brazil is hard to beat too. There are a total of five ecosystems present, which translates to a huge variety of species scuttling, prowling, gliding and fluttering about in the many untouched corners of this vast nation. Mix up all the incredible things to do and places to visit in Brazil and the end product is a truly thrilling Brazilian holiday.

Poly, one of our local experts in Brazil, is from Minas Gerais; a stunning, inland region with verdant rolling landscapes, picturesque colonial towns… and delicious food. We thought that we’d ask her what her favourite dish was so that you could try it and enjoy the flavours of her homeland too.
