Atlantic Crossing
Cape Verde Islands

Move Across Boundaries

As you make a Transatlantic crossing from the Canary Islands to Brazil, enjoy an all-inclusive experience aboard a Cultural Expedition. Along the way, explore historical Mindelo with its cobblestone streets and colonial buildings – the pride and joy of the volcanic island of São Vicente. Nestled in a bay ringed by mountains, the scenery will move you and so will the music. Dive into Cape Verde’s musical influences with inspiring rhythms that include Brazilian samba, African drumbeats and Caribbean merengue. The verdant valleys and rugged mountains of Praia create a landscape ready for exploration. Find your way to the old capital Cidade Velha, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Oct 27 Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Arrive: 8:00 am

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Rio de Janeiro invokes images of a never-ending festival as one of the most celebrated cities in the world. From dancing samba on the beach of Ipanema to exploring the art deco influences of Copacabana, it comes alive. The iconic Christ the Redeemer statue, seen for miles in any direction, encapsulates the city’s grand feel. On the mouth of Guanabara Bay lies the peak of Sugarloaf Mountain, where you can take a cable car ride to the top for exhilarating, bird’s-eye views of city structures expanding to the edges of lush green cliffs into blue waters. Just on the outskirts of the city, a new UNESCO World Heritage Site awaits to be explored - Sítio Roberto Burle Marx - a garden designed by the landscape architect it’s named after.
