In Rio, follow in the footsteps of locals and visit the city’s iconic landmarks Corcovado Mountain and Christ the Redeemer Statue, and discover through one of the world’s largest and most accessible urban rainforests. Immerse yourself in the vast Amazon and wake up each morning to the entrancing sounds of the jungle. Canoe through small river tributaries, fish for piranha, hike under lush wildlife-rich canopies, and visit local indigenous communities to see and witness a way of life that’s in harmony with nature.
