Rio Carnival Complete Experience

From £1.0E+19 for 6 days
Trip Overview

Rio’s annual Carnival is the greatest party on Earth and a once in a lifetime experience with six days of street festivals, pulsating samba rhythms and a city at one with itself, having the most amazing time. And no visit to Rio de Janeiro would be complete without a visit to explore Sugar Loaf and Corcovado.

The highlight of the week is the “premiership” Samba School Parades in the Sambadrome. We take our places in Sector 11, the party sector, to really soak up the atmosphere. If you want to get totally involved, you can join a Samba School in full costume for the parade; an incredible experience.
