Itinerary

Salvador de Bahia
Day 1
With a rich Afro-Brazilian heritage, Salvador, the capital of Bahia, is a vibrant city where African and South American cultures blend. Salvador served as Brazil's first capital from 1549 to 1763, and its UNESCO-listed historic centre, Pelourinho, bursts with cobblestone streets and colourful colonial buildings. Jorge Amado, a beloved literary figure, is celebrated at his former home, now the museum A Casa do Rio Vermelho.
Ilheus
Day 2
Founded in 1534, Ilhéus in southern Bahia, Brazil, is proud of its rich cultural blend of African, Portuguese and indigenous influences. Renowned for stunning beaches, white sand and clear waters, the city is surrounded by lush rainforests harbouring diverse wildlife. Notable rainforest experiences include Floresta Nacional de Canavieiras, offering trails, waterfalls and rivers, and Parque Estadual da Lagoa Encantada with a beautiful lagoon.
Trancoso, Reserva Jacumo
Day 3
Trancoso, a former fishing village near Praia do Espelho on the south coast of Bahia, has transformed into a luxury destination surrounded by the lush Atlantic forest, where the local population coexists harmoniously with nature. Reserva Jacumã, a rustic-style boutique hotel in Trancoso focussed on wellbeing in nature, features a restaurant that serves a fusion of contemporary regional cuisine using fresh produce from the surrounding sea and land.
Abrolhos Archipelago
Day 4
The Abrolhos Archipelago, comprises five islands within the Abrolhos Marine National Park, off Bahia. Only one island, Siriba, is open to visitors, offering rich biodiversity, extensive coral reefs and serving as a humpback whale breeding ground. It's also a habitat for leatherback and loggerhead sea turtles, as well as threatened bird species, such as masked and brown boobies, frigatebirds, red-billed tropicbirds, sooty terns and brown noddies.
Day at sea
Day 5
Sea days are rarely dull. Take the time to sit back and let the world go by. The ship’s observation decks provide stunning views of the passing ocean. A day at sea gives you the opportunity to mingle with other passengers and share your experiences of this incredible trip or head to our library which is stocked full of reference books.

Buzios
Day 6
Known as the St. Tropez of Brazil, this fashionable resort town attracts Rio's wealthy with its 23 breathtaking beaches tucked into coves along the coastline. Once a quaint fishing village, it now boasts fancy shops, boutiques, excellent restaurants and a European vibe. Don't miss trying some of the signature caipirinha cocktails!
Rio de Janeiro
Day 7
Pulsating with energy, Rio de Janeiro wows with sensational beaches and a dazzling mountain backdrop cloaked in tropical forest. A cable car glides up Sugarloaf Mountain, while a cog train heads to Corcovado's peak and the towering Christ statue overlooking the city. Copacabana and Ipanema are perfect for lounging on the sand and people-watching. No visit is complete without a caipirinha cocktail amid Rio's lively bars with a carnival vibe.
