ITINERARY

Begin the 12-hour tour with a drive from Rio de Janeiro to the city of Armação dos Buzios, located on a peninsula on the north coast of Rio de Janeiro.

Arriving in Buzios, take a boat (schooner) ride through some of the best beaches in the region. Visit the beaches of João Fernandes, Ilha Feia (Ugly Island) and Praia da Tartaruga (Turtle Beach), with stops for diving.

After the boat trip, stroll along Orla Bardot, where you will find the statue of Brigitte Bardot, renowned French actress who in 1964 escaped the paparazzi and went on vacation in the city. Then, enjoy a delicious lunch at a buffet restaurant. After lunch, use your free time exploring the charming Rua das Pedras (Stone Street) - the most famous street in Buzios - and its shops, bars and restaurants

Admire the charming and bucolic atmosphere of a former fishing village that has adopted tourism as one of its main activities and has become one of the most visited cities in Brazil.

Return to Rio de Janeiro.
