Carnival: There’s really no party like it. If you’re looking to get right down into the colourful thick of things, look no further than this compact six-day trip that includes a tour of Rio and tickets to the Sambadrome. You’ll be seated in Section 11, which will give you a stellar view of all the feathers and sequins on display in the parade, and you won’t need to worry about a thing — local support from G Adventures will take care of the details. So settle in, but don’t get too comfortable — soon you’ll be off your feet and dancing up a storm to Latin rhythm.

Day 2: Rio de Janeiro

Start place: Rio de Janeiro

Enjoy a city tour, of Brazil’s ocean-side jewel, Río de Janeiro. This massive city gets as many as five million international tourists every year to sip caipirinhas on the beach, dance the samba in the city’s streets, and ascend Corcovado Mountain to see the truly monumental Christ the Redeemer up close. Experience Rio at its finest, full of energy during this crazy, colourful, epic party.

Get into the Carnival spirit with an exclusive beach party. Make sure you find something purple to wear!
Enjoy a city tour that visits some of the city's best features including Sugar Loaf Mountain and Christ the Redeemer. Admire the cityscape from different viewpoints and be sure to snap a few photos. After, get ready for the huge private G party on Copacabana beach, be sure to put on some purple flair.

Day 3: Rio de Janeiro

Start place: Rio de Janeiro

Many visitors head to the famous Copacabana beach, although the beaches of Ipanema and Leblon can be less crowded and are equally well equipped with vendors selling food, jewellery, sarongs, and anything else you might want. Opt to enjoy some of the Carnival street parties in the evening.
Enjoy a free day in Rio to explore the city, opt to go hang gliding, or head out on a favela tour. G Adventures staff will keep the group in the know regarding nearby Carnival street parties; opt in at any time.

Day 4: Rio de Janeiro

Start place: Rio de Janeiro

Take it slow today because the parade literally lasts all night. This evening between 6-7:30, transfer to the Sambodrome where we have reserved seats in section 11. G Adventures representatives will accompany you throughout the evening, and after the Parade you'll transfer back to your hotel.

Samba schools are associations of people from the same neighbourhood or community (favela) who get together on a regular basis for samba meetings and rehearsals. Samba schools provide valuable jobs to the community in the production of costumes and floats. Each year, schools choose a different theme and may take to the parade from 3,000 to 5,000 members, and 6 to 8 floats. They have to make it through the runway in a period from 60-80 minutes, which means each member will spend only about 25-30 minutes inside the Sambodrome.
Head to the Sambadrome to watch the parade from section 11, dance with friends and admire the flashy costumes passing by.

End place: Rio de Janeiro

Meals: B
Day 5: Rio de Janeiro

After an all-night samba party, relax and enjoy the sun and surf of the city. Take a book to Copacabana beach, shop along the main streets of Ipanema and Leblon, try some Brazilian beef at a churrascaria, or just sleep in and get some rest.
Free day to relax and recover from a late night out. Afternoon and evening street parties are ongoing for the brave and strong.
