Rio de Janeiro Holiday Packages

Welcome to Rio de Janeiro, a thriving metropolis carved into jungle-covered mountains and set alongside miles of famous golden beaches. The site of the 2014 World Cup, Rio is a magical place to visit—just one look at the city from the top of Corcovado Mountain and you'll know what we're talking about.

Things to Do in Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro holidays must include a visit to the beach. Head to Copacabana or Ipanema for surfing, fishing, swimming, volleyball and the national obsession: football. Or just watch the beautiful people as you relax in the sun. Get there in February in the few days before Ash Wednesday, and you'll witness Rio's legendary Carnival. It's a full-on extravaganza of costumes, floats, music and dance.

Gazing over it all is the towering statue of Christ the Redeemer, some 710 metres high atop Mount Corcovado. You can hike to this iconic landmark if you're up for the thrill, or if you want to cut straight to the scenery, book one of our Rio de Janeiro car hire options. When you're ready to explore more of Brazil, you can drive about 450 kilometres to the dynamic capital of Sao Paulo.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Rio de Janeiro holiday packages bring you to a city that makes shopping a joy, with native arts and crafts and high-end designer clothing. Local artisans purvey their wares in markets and boutiques, and are renowned for their stylish leather and suede. Street markets are crammed with cheap clothes, accessories and other goodies. Modern and comfortable shopping centres, such as Botafogo Prai, stock the latest pieces by top-notch Brazilian and international designers.

If you're less of a consumer but looking for something to consume, Brazil is a fertile food bowl with a land mass greater than Australia's, and much of its produce goes straight to the restaurants of Rio. Indulge your carnivorous side at an all-you-can-eat churrascaria, or steakhouse, where an endless procession of freshly roasted meats are carved right at your table. Pair your meal with a caipirinha, the national cocktail of the country made from sugar, lime and cachaça--a spirit made from sugarcane juice.

After sating your appetite, get ready to hit the night scene. Brazil comes alive when the sun goes down, and rhythmic samba is its driving beat. Kick up your heels to live music at any of the many casas de samba and gafieras, or dance halls. Don't be alarmed if someone tells you to take it outside—the city is famed for its pumping street parties. Lapa and Gavea are two of the hottest spots. Heading back indoors, Rio's energetic clubs will keep you jumping till dawn.
