Tofino Expeditions, a veteran commercial sea kayaking company, is announcing a special offer on their award-winning Brazil sea kayaking adventure. The trip, which was recently included in National Geographic Traveler’s annual “50 Tours Of A Lifetime Issue”, takes kayakers of all ability levels to Brazil’s stunning southern coast for a journey that includes world-class kayaking along with cultural exploration.
For a limited time, Tofino Expeditions will be offering a discount of $1000 per couple for this trip which departs in October. On this adventure vacation, paddlers explore the Costa Verde, a verdant swath of Atlantic rainforest bordered by warm, aquamarine water that is protected from the open Atlantic by Ilha Grande--the Big Island. Steeped in history and abundant with wildlife, this area includes the UNESCO World Heritage site of Paraty and the Ecological Reserves of Juatinga and Cairucu.
The tour starts with an exploration of Rio de Janeiro, recently declared an UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the world’s most exciting cities. Guests will visit some of Rio’s most iconic sites while experiencing a thrilling city that’s buzzing with preparations for hosting both the 2016 Olympic Games and the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Participants also have an opportunity to visit the beautifully restored colonial town of Paraty, once the terminus of the Caminho do Ouro (Gold Road) and Saco de Mamangua, Brazil’s tropical fjord located along a stretch of tropical coastline dotted with tiny fishing villages and exquisite beaches.
Along with kayaks, Tofino Expeditions will also supply Stand Up Paddle Boards so that visitors can try one of the world’s newest water sports, Stand Up Paddling (SUP). SUP is a traditional Hawaiian variation on surfing that includes the use of a large canoe-like paddle to travel. In addition to SUP and kayaking, guests also enjoy accommodations at comfortable eco-lodges and guesthouses, delicious culinary experiences, authentic cultural interactions, and much more. Dates: October 18-27. Trip must be booked by September 15th, 2012. Price after discount, $3690 per person. Minimum age 12 years. For more information or to book a trip, visit www.tofino.com .
