Rio & Iguazu Falls

(7 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis)
Rio de Janeiro, Iguazu Falls

This private luxury tour features Rio de Janeiro and the breathtaking Iguazu Falls.

Begin in Rio de Janeiro, the most beautiful city in Brazil. With your private guide and driver, experience the best of Rio's vibrant culture and spectacular landscapes. Venture up Corcovado Mountain for panoramic views over the city. Stroll through the bohemian Santa Teresa neighborhood. Browse local art galleries. See the highlights of the historic center of Rio. Experience samba at an atmospheric local club. Visit the lush botanical gardens. One day, learn about Brazilian cuisine during a private cooking class, shop for local fashions in top boutiques, take the cable car to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain, visit an NGO to learn about life in a local favela (shantytown), or enjoy a bicycle tour along Ipanema and Copacabana beaches. Artisans of Leisure can also arrange additional touring in and around Rio upon request, such as visiting noted museums, taking private samba lessons or seeing iconic buildings designed by renowned Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer.

Continue to Iguazu Falls, one of the most spectacular natural attractions in the world. Stay at Belmond Hotel das Cataratas, a grand historic hotel surrounded by jungle and wildlife that's a short walk from the Brazilian side of Iguazu Falls. With your private guide, venture onto catwalks to see the most breathtaking sections of the waterfall, such as the thundering Garganta del Diablo ("Devil's Throat"). Also enjoy a private boat excursion to the base of the falls. Alternatively, stay in a private villa at Awasi, an exclusive luxury lodge in the rainforest on the Argentine side of the falls. Tour both side and enjoy optional lodge-based activities such as kayaking on the river, hiking and birding in the rainforest, seeing the UNESCO-listed ruins of Jesuit missions or visiting a local indigenous community. Upon request, we can also arrange scenic helicopter flights over Iguazu Falls.

Return to Rio de Janeiro for a night.

This tour can easily be extended with additional time in Brazil, Argentina or other countries in South America.

You and the Artisans team made the entire trip go like clockwork…I have no idea if you pulled any strings but we had the most incredible room at the Copacabana Palace…we had the most awesome premium view of the fireworks without having to mingle with the 2-million person crowd; so thanks for everything!
