This program is a blend of nature. Where you will know a little of Rio de Janeiro and its beautiful beaches, Foz do Iguaçu and its impressive waterfalls and Manaus with the diversity of fauna and flora of the Amazon Forest.

Rio de Janeiro, commonly referred to simply as Rio, is the capital city of the State of Rio de Janeiro, the second largest city of Brazil, and the third largest metropolitan area and agglomeration in South America, 6th largest in the Americas, and 26th in the world... . It’s the most visited city in the southern hemisphere and is known for its natural settings, carnival celebration, samba, Bossa Nova and less but not least its beaches. Rio is inhabited by a colorful mixture of European, African and native peoples. They are a friendly bunch and are always ready for a chat and a cold beer. Rio has a tropical climate with an average temperature of 26C.  

Foz do Iguaçu makes up the border with Argentina and Paraguay, but its main attraction is without any doubt the majestic waterfalls. The Falls of Iguaçu are classified world heritage by Unesco since 1986 and are a must for the nature lover. They are the most impressive waterfalls in the world and also the biggest and are the result of the confluence of the rivers Parana and Iguacu. The water body plunges  65 m. deep, over a 4 km wide geological crack where it comes thundering down with an ear deafening sound  into a natural amphitheater. Foz do Iguacu has a sub-tropical climate with temperatures that can plummet to -5C during the European summer and that can reach as high as  40C during the European winter.

Manaus, Amazonas, is situated at the confluence of the Negro and Amazon rivers. The city was founded in 1669 as the Fort of São José do Rio Negro. It was elevated to a statute of town in 1832 with the name of “Manaus”, means “mother of the gods” in tribute to the indigenous nation of Manaós. Manaus was especially active during the rubber boom in the late 19th century. Afterwards it somehow lost the interest of the general public until the Zona Franca was created and tourism started to flourish. Today Manaus is a modern city with an important industry and virtual no access by road. Manaus therefore thanks it existence to the mighty Amazon River.
