They say everyone should experience the Rio de Janeiro carnival at least once in their life. With this activity, you'll get the opportunity to see the parade in the unique Sambódromo Carioca.

Rio Carnival Experience

When reserving your activity you can choose between two options to enjoy the Rio carnival.

Watch the Sambódromo Parade

If you choose this option, we'll pick you up from the hotel and take you to the famous Sambódromo, which is a full 550 metres long! Once you're there you'll fall in love with the music and the dances on display in one of the most impressive spectacles in the world!

Samba dancers on the top of fabulous floats, and breathtaking costumes full of glittering colour. You'll be witness to one of Rio's most famous experiences, the annual Brazillian carnival festivities. You'll see six of the most prestigious samba schools in the city as you dance to the sound of the drums! We'll watch from sections 4 and 5 of the stands. 

Take part in the Sambódromo Parade + Costume

With this option, when arriving at the Rio de Janeiro Sambodromo you should head directly to the changing rooms to try on one of the very costumes the professional dancers wear during the show.

Then, when you're well and truly in the role of a professional samba dancer, you get to take part in the parade, being one of the stars of one of the most televised spectacles in the world! Want to feel like one of the dancers? This is your chance!
