Visit one of the most famous cities in the world, Rio de Janeiro. Known as Cidade Marvilhosa, or the Marvellous City, it won’t take you long to see why Rio de Janeiro has earned this title. From the stunning beaches of Copacabana, Ipanema and Botofogo to mountain peaks such as Sugarloaf and Corcovado, Rio de Janeiro offers delights for your eyes. You’ll stay right in the heart of Copacabana, stand with arms wide outstretched on Corcovado, look back at the glittering city from Sugarloaf Mountain and more on this four day Chimu Adventures Rio de Janeiro Extension. Indeed Rio de Janeiro is something to marvel at. And you might find yourself agreeing with the Brazilian’s when they claim “Deus é Brasileiro,” which means “God is Brazilian,” as it’s hard to find a city or a place in the world to top it, so surely the gods created it for us to enjoy? 

On this all-encompassing personalised itinerary, Chimu will provide travel logistics for your travel party for the duration of your journey, plus expert guides for all the major sightseeing as per itinerary. Each night you will stay in superior accommodation, handpicked by our experienced team for their creature comforts, convenient locations, and impeccable service. 


Arrival in Rio de Janeiro

You will arrive in the city of Rio de Janeiro, located on the Baia de Guanabara and the Atlantic Ocean. From the airport you will be transferred to your hotel in Copacabana Beach where you’ll stay right on Atlantica Avenue, Rio’s most famous beach strip. Today is an arrival day, so you’re free to kick it back on the Copacabana and check out your local surroundings.

Half day tour of Santa Teresa

Join a discovery tour of Rio de Janeiro that heads downtown to the main financial district and Carioca Square before visiting the neighbourhood of Santa Teresa. This area of Rio de Janeiro is known for its cobblestone streets, beautiful architecture, charming upper-class residential homes and stunning views from the hillside overlooking the city. You will also find the Carmelitas’ Convent and the famous Selaron Staircase. The colourful stairway is covered in mosaic tiles, the work of Chilean born artist Jorge Salaron.

Copacabana, Corcovado & Sugarloaf tour

Today you will see Rio de Janeiro’s main tourist highlights. You will begin with a scenic drive along the Copacabana Beach and Botafogo Beach before passing Palacio Guanabara, the official residence of the Governor of the state of Guanabara.
No visit to Rio is complete without visiting Corcovado mountain. At its peak you’ll see panoramic views of the city and the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue. Your next stop is Sugarloaf Mountain. You’ll board a cable car to the top of Urca Hill and take in spectacular views of Guanabara Bay. A second cable car will then take you to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain to look back towards the city.
Afterwards, you’ll enjoy a Brazilian BBQ lunch at a Churrascaria before visiting Macarena Stadium and the Sambradome. Back downtown, you’ll see the Duque de Caxias Palace, Itamaraty Palace, Tirandentes Square and the famous Lapa Arches. Finally you will cruise along Aterro do Flamingo, passing the Monument to the Fallen in World War II, on the way back to your hotel.
