Explore the Gaucho culture and traditions through the cuisine.
This is not Brazil as you’ve been taught to expect it. Instead of dripping jungle and crazy cities of pastel blocks rising out of the steam and spectacular coast, get ready for chocolate box villages and stunning vineyards, alpine hills and dusty cow ranches.
Oh and then there’s the jaw-dropping Itaimbezinho Canyon, a sheer gouge in the pine dotted plateau that draws misty waterfalls and lazily snaking blue rivers, and is simply one of the must-see canyons in the world.
This southernmost corner of Brazil maintains a really distinct character and culture, and is a place where Gaúcho culture reigns supreme. So get your wide-brimmed hat on grab a cup of Maté, and head out into the beautiful countryside for a Brazilian cowboy experience.
