Brazil’s participation tour providers, Embratur, Fundação de Turismo de Mato Grosso do Sul, and ATTA are excited to unveil the pre-adventures on offer for AdventureNEXT Latin America.
Brazil, one of the world’s most enchanting destinations, is a country of lush, dense rainforests, pampas, immense plateaus, rocky canyons, thundering waterfalls, still wild white-sand beaches, colonial towns, and huge pulsing metropolises. Brazil’s biodiversity is unmatched. It as the largest collection of plant and animal species found on earth. There’s no shortage of adventure either.
There are countless places where you can spot iconic species in Brazil, including howler monkeys, toucans, scarlet macaws, capybara, pink dolphins, sea turtles and thousands of other species.
Travelers can hike to rocky cliff tops to panoramic views, horseback ride and wildlife safari in the Pantanal, kayak flooded forests in the Amazon, rapel into deep caves, swim off palm-fringed beaches and snorkel crystal-clear rivers or coastal reefs.
Delegates need to arrive in Brazil (starting city varies), between November 1 and 4, depending on the start date and time of your pre-adventure. Pre-adventures end on Monday, November 7, with all delegates arriving in Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul, the location of AdventureNEXT Latin America.
There is one post-adventure, open to Buyers only, beginning on November 10, focusing on the culinary highlights of the Pantanal.
Before You Book:
Double check your itinerary start time/date before booking airfare. Some adventures begin early on Day 1, forcing an arrival and overnight stay the day prior to the trip start. Read your itinerary carefully.
Carefully note the start date, location, activities, and itinerary difficulty to make sure your choice is suitable for your interests and abilities. You must be available to start the trip on time and stay through the duration of the itinerary. (Full itineraries are accessible on the specific tour’s page.)
Hotel accommodations and most meals are provided during your adventure (see inclusions/exclusions in the itinerary PDF).
Adventures have limited space and are available on a first come, first-served basis.
All adventures are subject to change, and in extreme cases, cancellation. If this occurs, the ATTA will work with you to find an alternate adventure.
Unless you’re an approved hosted buyer or media attendee, you are responsible for your accommodation beginning Monday, November 7.
Important Notice: There are inherent risks in the activities offered during the Pre-Adventures and throughout the AdventureNEXT Latin America. The ATTA highly recommends that all event participants purchase travel insurance to provide the level of protection and support you require during your involvement at AdventureNEXT Latin America and during Pre-Adventure activities. The ATTA encourages delegates to consider purchasing travel insurance with ATTA’s Travel Insurance Partner – World Nomads. Additional ATTA travel insurance and safety/medical member providers include: AIG, Global Rescue, and Ripcord – powered by Redpoint.
