    Each region in Brazil is unique and offers the visitor a festival of colours, aromas and tastes: a land of adventure and luscious vegetation.

    Brazil offers a kaleidoscope of landscapes with its arid plateaux, immaculate beaches and sierras arranged around the vast Amazon basin, and it occupies a unique place within
    Latin America. Like the Portuguese conquistadores as they discovered the coasts of Brazil in the 16th century, we invite you to follow in the footsteps of these great explorers for a journey, a cruise aboard Le Soléal.
