The Peralta, a beautiful floating hotel embracing history and culture.
Originally built in 1989, Billie Pennachin remodelled his grandfather’s boat in 2017, impassioned by his love for the Pantanal.
This exclusive cruise ship brings special touches to make your stay a magical one.
The boat also features a panoramic restaurant, onboard gym, bar and lounge.
A water world of exotic beasts and birds, the Pantanal is the largest tropical wetland on Earth. The wide, open spaces of the Pantanal offer amazing opportunities to spot wildlife in their natural habitat. On this suggested adventure, cruise along its waters and catch a glimpse of extraordinary fauna and flora, from giant otters to giant lily pads. Continue to discover rural and coastal Brazil as you stay at a stunning farmyard estate and a peaceful seaside resort. Between winery tours and oyster excursions, get a taste for Brazilian gastronomy.
Upon arrival, privately transfer to a luxury farmyard estate in Porto Feliz, where you will spend the next four nights. Visit nearby Boituva and soar above the green fields in a colourful hot air balloon.
Tour a winery in Sao Roque.
Explore the Goes Winery, touring the collection of historic vineyards. The winery fully embraces viticulture, producing everything from traditional wines to grape coolers. During your visit, enjoy a sumptuous lunch and sample the offerings of the winery.
Cruise the mighty Pantanal.
After a short domestic flight to Cuiaba, board the Peralta for a four night cruise along the world’s largest tropical wetland. With no towns in sight, the Pantanal the epitome of tranquillity. Settle into your luxury boat and get ready for incredible wildlife and culinary adventures.
Observe Pantanal wildlife in its natural habitat.
From the comfort of the deck and on speedboat tours, witness the wealth of life hosted by the open marshes of the Pantanal including jaguars, giant otter, tapirs and capybara. Look up to the sky and spot toucans and storks soaring above.
Transfer to the sun-kissed shores of Maceio.
After a short domestic flight, privately transfer to your luxurious seaside resort in Barra de Sao Miguel Beach. Hop aboard a speed boat and explore lagoons, mangroves and coral reefs, stopping by deserted beaches and islands.
Visit an oyster nursery.
Located in the middle of a lagoon, journey to the nursery by canoe. Much more than a gastronomic experience, discover the village where the oyster producers live in Taipa houses. Explore river springs hidden in the lush unspoiled nature and visit the stunning Sao Francisco River.
Transfer to the international airport for your flight home.
Arrive in Dublin.
