Lots of natural oases

Nature is never far away in Brazil. Rio is on a bay, always close to the sea: The famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema are particularly popular, especially with surfers and divers. There are green rainforests just outside the city, full of unique animals and plants. And there is nature to be discovered in the middle of the city too – the botanical garden is full of rare flowers and plants spreading lovely scents. Rio de Janeiro is the ideal destination for a city trip or the perfect starting point for a longer holiday in Brazil. Book a flight to Rio de Janeiro now!

City of song and dance

Say Rio, think carnaval. Millions of joyful people crowd the streets of Rio during these 4 days. You can learn more about this spectacular festival in the Sambadrome museum. For instance, how these remarkable floats are constructed. And of course, there’s also plenty to do during the rest of the year: The national dance is the samba. Go out for an evening and you’ll soon get the hang of it.
