Receive the new year in one of the biggest NYE celebrations in the world with a incredibly vibrant street party South American style!

5 Days

Rio is best known for Carnival but celebrating New Year's Eve in Rio is quickly joining the list of great celebrations. While there are parties in restaurants, hotels and clubs across the city, Copacabana Beach is the main site of the city's partying. It is estimated that a million people gather along the beach, the vast majority dressed in white. Many bring candles and candlelit offerings to the Goddess of the Sea, Iemanja, and set them at water's edge to be taken out to sea for her pleasure. Together, this sets an unforgettable stage for the night's festivities. At midnight, the arrival of the New Year is announced by a massive fireworks display. Fireworks are launched from 4 beachfront areas, from a raft out in Copacabana Bay and as reams in waterfall formation from three separate spots along the beach.
There are numerous stages set up along the 4 kilometer beach present shows with samba and popular Brazilian music for a full night of entertainment ceasing only as the sun begins to rise.
Go prepared to have fun, relax and get in the swing of things. If you do, you will have the time of your life.

Hotels quoted are tourist, superior and first class categories (similar to 3*, 4* and 5* categories).  The hotels we use are clean, safe, with private facilities and are located in Copacabana.
