Climb Canyons and Waterfalls in Brazil

Take on canyoneering, zip lining and waterfall climbing during this action-packed adventure in the heart of Brazil.

About Your Trip

Built from 1956 to 1960 by a team of visionary planners and architects, Brasilia remains an astonishing place to visit, with still-striking modernist architecture displayed in buildings such as the National Congress and the JK Bridge (named for former Brazilian president Juscelino Kubitschek). The countryside, filled with unique wildlife, canyons and waterfalls, is equally stunning and not to be missed.

Experience the urban and wild sides of central Brazil on this getaway to the heart of South America. You’ll enjoy cultural, architectural and gastronomical tours in the innovative capital of Brasilia, famously conceived as a symbol of modernist urbanism. You’ll also venture outside the city to one of Brazil’s natural treasures: the Chapada Dos Veadeiros, a national park renowned for its botanical diversity, its striking rock formations and a multitude of breathtaking waterfalls.

This trip will close by September 25.
