Overview

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?

Sustainability

Being environmentally accountable is a crucial part of our organisation. Chimu is currently striving towards using less paper, taking several initiatives to do so and tracking our progress along the way. Our goal: A paperless organisation. For this reason, all information given to you will be sent electronically. We encourage those who choose to travel with us to support our aspirations and actions and ask that you reconsider printing out documentation. To view these documents, you can download them to your iPad or portable computer before and during your trip.

Chimu is passionate and dedicated to sustainability measures and understands the crucial part sustainability plays within the tourism industry.

We use local guides and office staff to both maximise local employment opportunities and minimise carbon footprint. Local guides also ensure you benefit from the intimate knowledge, passion and culture of the country you’re visiting. Our guides are all highly qualified (most with university degrees) or equip with many years of experience and are paid above the standard wage. Whether it be our knowledgeable local guides, locally produced meals or the transport on tour, we do not use imported goods when local products are available. We aim to minimise our impact on the environment and give as much back as possible to the communities we work in.

While visiting the many national parks, heritage sites, museums and landmarks our travellers are encouraged to explore whilst remaining culturally aware and sensitive. We further encourage you to buy appropriate souvenirs and discourage the buying of anything wrongfully made or taken from the environment i.e. shells and endangered species products. Information on how you can be environmentally conscious, and travel responsibly will be made available in our Travellers Guides and provided during your travels by guides and staff.
