Rio Carnival Standard Package

From £1590 for 6 days
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 Standard Carnival Package is designed for those who want to have a full Rio Carnival experience, party and all, from the comfort of a good quality 3-star hotel in the lively Flamengo district of Rio, based on twin/double share accommodation.

You will be looked after by Brazilian staff who know Rio intimately. The package includes tickets to the Sambadrome, home of the world-famous parades, a guided half day trip up Corcovado and another to Sugar Loaf Mountain, as well as an introductory walking tour around the city.

We can help with a range of optional activities, such as the Gay Ball, visiting a favela community project and even joining the Samba parade itself.

Itinerary & Notes

Border information: if you are joining in Rio de Janeiro, you will most likely exit Brazil at Rio de Janeiro Galeão International Airport.

The first day of Rio Carnival is free time as everyone will be arriving at various times throughout the day to start the package. Our hotel check-in is from midday, and Dragoman staff will be on hand to give you assistance.

There will be a joining meeting in the afternoon - please check the notice board in the lobby/reception area for the exact times for your meeting.

After the meeting there will be a table booked in a nearby restaurant if you wish to join your group and local guide for a meal.

In Rio de Janeiro we will stay in a great hotel with a rooftop pool in the Flamengo district, close to the beach and the metro station.
