Itinerary

Fly to Sao Paulo
Day 1-4

Paraty

Touchdown in Sao Paulo where you're met by your driver and swept off to the Portuguese influenced seaside town of Paraty, a charming UNESCO World Heritage Site, where the streets are pedestrianised and the buildings beautifully preserved. Meander along cobbled streets, pop into boutique shops and art galleries, and enjoy long alfresco lunches and romantic candlelit dinners in hidden overgrown courtyards. Head out by boat to explore the surrounding islands with their gorgeous beaches and clear waters teeming with tropical fish perfect for snorkelling. Get into the spirit of things by visiting local Cachaça distilleries and sample Brazil's signature drink which was first created in Paraty.

Accommodation: Pousada Porto Imperial ( 3 nights )
Day 4-5

Tiradentes, Minas Gerais, Brazil

Transfer overland to Tiradentes, a small colonial town set in the heart of Minas Gerais, stopping on route at Petropolis (known as the Imperial City) to admire its unique architecture. Tiradentes is the perfect blend of impressive colonial architecture and natural beauty. Visit baroque churches filled with gold and ornate art, wander between charming and picturesque buildings and take in a spectacular mountainous landscape backdrop.

During your stay you can take a fascinating city tour, while away the afternoon popping into antique shops or if you’ve still got some energy take a hike through the mountains.

Accommodation: Solar da Ponte ( 1 night )
Day 5-7

Minas Gerais

Back on the road, you’ll be transferred to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ouro Preto, which is a labyrinth of narrow, winding cobbled streets, beautiful cathedrals and ostentatious baroque architecture. To explore the highlights of this colonial gem, we suggest a guided city tour and spend the rest of your time at leisure, exploring the streets of this wonderful city. Before leaving you’ll visit the impressive botanical gardens of Inhotim, one of the largest outdoor art centres in Latin America, which contains huge sculptures and interactive installations.

Accommodation: Solar do Rosario ( 2 nights )
Day 7-10

Salvador

You’ll need to catch a flight to reach your final destination, Salvador da Bahia, the home of Afro-Brazilian culture which comes alive with the sound of beating drums and dancing as evening falls. A guided historical tour of the city will give you a fascinating insight into the region’s rich and diverse culture and the mysterious religious traditions of Candomblé.

Salvador is surrounded by beautiful beaches which can be visited over the next few days, or take a boat trip to nearby islands and soak in the views of Salvador from the water. In the evening watch the magical sunset with a zesty Caipirinha at one of the lively bars and make sure you try a moqueca, a hearty seafood stew famous in these parts.

Accommodation: Casa do Amarelindo ( 3 nights )
Fly home from Salvador
