Start in Rio de Janeiro and end in Salvador, the trip Brazilian Coast, Capitals & Chapadas is a guided explorer tour that takes 17 days. You will travel through Itacare, Rio de Janeiro and Tres Marias in Brazil. Brazilian Coast, Capitals & Chapadas is a group trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

This route takes us from pulsating Salvador to the iconic
Rio de Janeiro on a tour of the beaches, colonial towns and national parks of
eastern Brazil. We tour the gold mines of the colonial, historic town of Ouro
Preto, and contrast this with Brazil's futuristic capital city, Brasilia, home
to some weird and wonderful modernist architecture. We take in two of Brazil's
national parks on this trip: Chapada da Diamantina and Chapada dos Veadeiros,
both absolute must-sees for nature lovers, with plenty of opportunities for
trekking, horse-riding, kayaking, and exploring cave systems. An unusual place
to explore is the latter's Vale da Lua, or Valley of the Moon, with its
bizarre, lunar-like rock formations. We also have time to relax in the
beautiful and eco-friendly beach town of Itacaré, and to bush camp in the
stunning Brazilian countryside.

“It was my first trip with Dragoman and I had a really good time. I would definitely travel with Dragoman again. I enjoyed all the places we visited. There wasn't any town/place that wasn't worth seeing.”

We recommend to check with your local embassies representing the countries that you are travelling to, as part of this itinerary.

Local Payment The local payment is a group fund, paid separately from the trip price on the first day of the tour. It covers everything that the group does together on the ground. This is primarily hotel accommodation and campsite fees, meals whilst camping (but not while eating in restaurants), and included activities and puts money directly back to the local community. The local payment, or kitty system, is unique to overlanding tours and provides maximum flexibility and best value on the road - you can see exactly what is being paid for, you get everything at cost price, it keeps costs competitive by leveraging group expenses and saves on administrative costs. The fund is run by the tour guide, and any excess left over at the end is returned equally to the group. Local prices are estimated in USD when we print the brochure then reviewed monthly as local costs and exchange rates vary throughout the year. It's therefore important once you book your trip to check the website regularly and just before departure for any changes to the amount.
