The country of Brazil is home to colorful folk arts traditions, a thriving modern art scene, and magnificent natural wonders.
Join us as we spend two weeks exploring some of the most vibrant destinations that this beautiful nation has to offer. We’ll start off in the heartland of Minas Gerais, where we’ll visit the quaint colonial towns of Ouro Preto, Tiradentes, and São João Del Rei and explore a countryside famed for its pastoral farmland and artisanal cheeses. Minas Gerais is also home to Inhotim, a world-renowned outdoor arts museum and botanical garden.
The next part of the trip will take us north to the coast of Pernambuco and Bahia, where we’ll visit traditional blockprinters, puppet makers, laceworkers, and ceramics artists and take time to soak in the spectacular beauty of the coast as we stay in two of the best coastal resorts in all of Brazil.
For those who want to add an optional 4-day extension (September 17th – 20th), we will visit Iguaçu Falls, the largest waterfall system on the planet and one of the great wonders of the natural world. From our base at the famed Hotel Belmond Das Cataratas, we’ll explore the majesty of Iguaçu by boat, foot, and even helicopter.
