Self-driving is the best way to truly get under the skin of a country’s culture and to unravel all its secrets. Stop and admire the natural beauty wherever and whenever you wish. Meet the locals and experience the freedom of exploring at your own pace. This itinerary is a suggestion for a self-drive adventure in beautiful and little explored south Brazil while staying in cosy boutique hotels throughout. After a couple of nights in Rio you will fly to Florianopolis where you will pick up a rental car and start your self-drive exploration for the next 11 days. First stop at the Serra Geral mountain range where you will stay in a charming mountain lodge surrounded by unspoilt beauty and where you will find many possibilities for outdoor activities. Then you will drive to Aparados da Serra National Park situated near the Atlantic coast and famous for its dramatic canyons and waterfalls. And as you are in Brazil, we had to include a beach stay! Next stop, you will be off to Praia do Rosa, one of Brazil’s story book destinations. You will then drive back to Florianopolis to drop off your rental car and catch a flight to Buenos Aires for a few days in the sophisticated Argentinian capital. This itinerary is a wonderful journey if you like to discover less travelled places and you have a sense of adventure. It could be perfect for an offbeat romantic getaway or for a truly unforgettable and unique honeymoon! Or why not choosing it as a once in your life family escapade?
