Rio Carnival Independent Package

Trip Overview

Join us for the greatest party on earth - an amazing spectacle of colour and costumes with the sounds of samba music.

It's a once in a lifetime experience, joining thousands of Cariocas in a six-day frenzy of dancing and celebration! Our Independent Carnival Package allows you to pick and choose which activities you want to do in Rio de Janeiro based at our 3-star hotel in the lively Flamengo district.

The Independent Package includes tickets to the Sambadrome, home of the world-famous parades.

We can also help with a large range of optional activities such as going to the Gay Ball, visiting a favela community project, taking a half-day guided tour of Corcovado and another to Sugar Loaf Mountain, and even joining the Sambadrome parade itself.
