Pantanal, Southern Amazon & Costa Verde beaches holiday

Amazon, Pantanal, Rio and Paraty. This isn't the first holiday to link them together. So why this one? Why us?

One which has you sipping wine from a family-run vineyard as the sun sets on the Douro valley, dining on the terrace of a palace nestled in lush forest and hiking along old fishermen trails past golden isolated beaches probably fits the bill. Throw in guided walks in the hidden corners of Porto and Lisbon, some of the best Roman ruins on the Iberian Peninsula and silent cork oak fields and you have something pretty special.
