Jet off to Rio de Janeiro and you'll land in a vibrant and exuberant city with beautiful beaches, iconic landmarks and a rich history. Towering mountains provide the backdrop for your holiday, while passionate samba beats deliver the soundtrack.

Whether soaking up the sun on a famous beach or enjoying the city's thriving nightlife, a Rio holiday won't disappoint...


After landing in colourful and exciting Rio de Janeiro, the only problem is deciding what to do first.

Head to one of the city's world-class beaches, such as Copacabana or Ipanema, to top up your tan. 

If you're more of a culture vulture, take a trip to Cinelandia Square to explore old Rio, with its historic buildings such as the National Museum of Fine Arts and the Municipal Theatre.

Other iconic landmarks in the city include the Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) statue, towering above Rio atop Corcovado Mountain, and one of the world's largest football stadiums, the Maracana. A cable car up Sugar Loaf Mountain rewards with panoramic views of the city, while a jeep safari through Tijuca Rainforest will thrill you with exotic plants, birds and wildlife.

Synonymous with Rio of course, is Carnival: every year pulsating Latin beats fill the streets, along with parades and dancing. If you are visiting Rio at this time, Sambadrome stadium is a top spot for enjoying this unforgettable celebration.
