Beer and Brazil, what could be better? Join us for our Samba, Waterfalls & Oktoberfest Brazil tour each October, for what’s become the largest beer festival outside of Germany.
Every October, the city of Blumenau bursts with pride for the Fatherland and celebrates Oktoberfest in traditional German style. German immigrants pioneered Blumenau in the 19th century, and today the city thrives as an enclave for Brazilians of German descent. Enjoy Black Forest cakes, bratwurst, and of course, plenty of beer on an Oktoberfest Brazil tour.
If you’re going to Brazil during Oktoberfest, make sure to hit some of the highlights of Brazil. We also recommend that you also see some of Argentina, especially Buenos Aires. We’ve designed the perfect 12 day itinerary for an Oktoberfest Brazil tour:
Start in Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina and a must-see for any traveler to South America. Take a city tour of Buenos Aires, watch a thrilling tango dance show, dine on Argentine steak, and get to know this vibrant city. Then head north to the Iguassu Falls, at the border of Argentina and Brazil. These waterfalls are not just any waterfall; these 250+ falls make up one of the largest set of waterfalls in the world.
Next head to Blumenau, a small hillside town near the southern coast of Brazil. Enjoy an authentic German meal and admire the German architecture throughout the town. Throughout the month of October, Blumenau celebrates Oktoberfest as well as mild springtime temperatures. Partake in the festival with plenty of great food, dances, music, and parades.

After a few days enjoying the festivities, complete your Oktoberfest Brazil tour by traveling north through the Atlantic Rainforest to Curitiba. This progressive city has a mix of immigrants from around the world, and has rapidly grown over the past few decades. Visit the Wire Opera House, the Botanical Gardens, and take a historic railway journey through the subtropical mountain landscape.
Continue your Brazil tour with a stop in São Paulo, the world’s second largest city. Take a city tour to see museums, churches, and the impressive architecture of this economic powerhouse city.
Finish your Brazil tour in Rio de Janeiro, known as the “Marvelous City” because of its gorgeous coastline, mountains, and world-famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. Stay in a beachside hotel and sip caipirinha cocktails while soaking your toes in the golden sand. A stay in Rio de Janeiro is the most perfect way to finish your Oktoberfest Brazil tour and get a taste of Brazil.
