Southern Explorations, Adventure Travel in Latin America

This ageless celebration first took place in the 18th century, and is now one of the most famous celebrations in the world. Carnival, celebrated the world over, is a five-day, four-night celebration that ends on Fat Tuesday (Mardi Gras). The festival is the last hurrah before Ash Wednesday, which marks the first of forty days of Lent.

Carnival is when Catholics and others kick up their heels before the Lenten fast, and in Rio it's done in style. Parades, costumes, street parties ? called blocos ? and Samba music call visitors and locals, young and old, to the street to celebrate.

Carnival is so popular in Rio that it can be hard to get access to all the most popular parts of the celebration. Southern Explorations' new tour takes care of all the details, and makes sure travelers experience all the best parts of Rio's Carnival festivities, plus the area's most famous landmarks, including:

Southern Explorations has paired up with local Brazilian guides to create an authentic tour for Carnival enthusiasts and new visitors alike. The trip includes lodging, all pickups and drop offs from the airport, guide fees, entrance fees at events, and several meals. By taking care of the details, this Carnival tour lets travelers focus on having a fun, authentic experience. The 2018 trip takes place February 9 to February 13.

Southern Explorations has won several awards for their adventure tours that take place all across South America. To learn more, go to https://www.southernexplorations.com/about-us.
