Brazil, a vast South American country, stretches from the Amazon Basin in the north to vineyards and massive Iguaçu Falls in the south. Rio de Janeiro, symbolized by its 38m Christ the Redeemer statue atop Mount Corcovado, is famed for its busy Copacabana and Ipanema beaches as well as its enormous, raucous Carnaval festival, featuring parade floats, flamboyant costumes, and samba music and dance.
Art and history

Painting, sculpture, music, literature and the other arts are often considered to be the repository of a society’s collective memory. Whenever you want to combine History with Art, these are the tours for you!
A cooking vacation is a trip based on the idea that food is one of the most important parts of a trip, and that encountering a destination through its cuisine provides an authentic experience unlike many standard sightseeing tours.
Would you like to spend a week in the Tuscan countryside learning to cook the Tuscan way from a warm and enthusiastic Italian chef? Or pass a few days at a Provencal B&B visiting the local produce markets and bakeries, enjoying your meals al fresco with a glass of excellent French wine? Or perhaps you would prefer a cooking trip to sunny Portugal where you can fully immerse yourself in the local cuisine and way of life? These are just a few of the types of cooking vacations we can offer.
From the Olympics to Mardi Gras, events are always worth traveling for. Looking to plan a trip around a weekend festival or a few worldly events? Let travel-for-All plan an accessible vacation for your next trip.
Think of a festival like a giant themed party. It’s a place where thousands of like-minded travelers get together to celebrate the thing they love most, from electronic music to classical theater, contemporary art, beer, and even movies. The exhilarating, shared experience of a festival helps travelers connect to new people, new sights, and new sounds, familiarizing them with a place.
Festivals are one of the biggest excuses for visiting a destination during peak season—that’s usually when a town or city is in full bloom, teeming with an irresistible mix of locals, visiting performers, high-brow art connoisseurs, and curious tourists.
Golf is a club-and-ball sport in which players use various clubs to hit balls into a series of holes on a course in as few strokes as possible. The game at the usual level is played on a course with an arranged progression of 18 holes, though recreational courses can be smaller, often having nine holes.
The object of the game is to complete what is known as a hole by playing a ball from the teeing ground into the hole on the putting green in the fewest possible number of strokes. A “round of golf‘ consists of playing 18 such holes.
Hiking & Trekking
Hiking is a long distance walk along a specific trail, most commonly across country. Some hikes can be challenging and last for days including camping, but others can be a long day walk at a steady pace.
Trekking is an outdoor recreational activity of hiking or walking for more than a day. It can be a short or an extended journey, and may or may not involve camping outdoors.
The organic rhythm of foot travel is a wonderful way to explore and make meaningful contact with the country and its friendly people.
The main difference between the two is that hiking is mainly a leisure activity which is done by walking on well-made trails and man-made roads. However, trekking is more rigorous, and a more challenging activity. It tests one’s physical ability, endurance, and even their mental or psychological capacity.
Hiking is a powerful cardio workout that can: Lower your risk of heart disease. Boost bone density, since walking is a weight-bearing exercise. Build strength in your glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings, and the muscles in your hips and lower legs.
One of the major benefits of trekking is that it leads to the whole body workout that helps in improving the health significantly. During trekking, our body is constantly on the move due to which the muscles get stretched, like when a trekker tries to cross a lake or climb a mountain.
Hot Air Balloon
A hot air balloon is a lighter-than-air aircraft consisting of a bag, called an envelope, which contains heated air. Suspended beneath is a gondola or wicker basket, which carries passengers and a source of heat, in most cases an open flame caused by burning liquid propane.
Up, up and away! Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly in a hot air balloon, soaring among the clouds? Hot air balloons have been around since 1783, making them the oldest form of human flight — and probably one of the most beautiful to watch, too.
There are 3 main parts to hot air balloons: the ‘burner’ creates heat that rises; the hot air fills the ‘envelope’ (that’s the balloon part); when it’s full, it lifts the ‘basket,’ which rises off the ground. But there’s no steering wheel! The pilots are at the mercy of the wind direction. Because wind speed is different depending on how high up in the air you are, the pilots listen carefully to the weather report, and turn the burner on and off to keep the balloons hovering at the right speed.
Hot air ballooning is a lot of fun and is worth the cost to have the experience of moving with the wind. There’s no feeling of motion. No breeze. You’re just standing in a basket and you can look all around you. If you’re in a beautiful area, you can see all the beauty of the world.
Kayaking is the use of a kayak for moving across water. It is distinguished from canoeing by the sitting position of the paddler and the number of blades on the paddle. A kayak is a low-to-the-water, canoe-like boat in which the paddler sits facing forward, legs in front, using a double-bladed paddle to pull front-to-back on one side and then the other in rotation. Most kayaks have closed decks, although sit-on-top and inflatable kayaks are growing in popularity as well.
Kayaks were created thousands of years ago by the Inuit, formerly known as Eskimos, of the northern Arctic regions. They used driftwood and sometimes the skeleton of whale, to construct the frame of the kayak, and animal skin, particularly seal skin was used to create the body. The main purpose for creating the kayak, which literally translates to “hunter’s boat” was for hunting and fishing. The kayak’s stealth capabilities, allowed for the hunter to sneak up behind animals on the shoreline, and successfully catch their prey. By the mid-1800s the kayak became increasingly popular and the Europeans became interested. German and French men began kayaking for sport. In 1931, a man named Adolf Anderle became the first person to kayak down the Salzachofen Gorge, this is where the birthplace of modern-day white-water kayaking is believed to have begun. Kayak races were introduced in the Berlin Olympic Games in 1936.
In the 1950s fiberglass kayaks were developed and commonly used, until 1980s when polyethylene plastic kayaks came about. Kayaking progressed as a fringe sport in the U.S. until the 1970s, when it became a mainstream popular sport. Now, more than 10 white water kayaking events are featured in the Olympics.While kayaking represents a key international watersport, few academic studies have been conducted on the role kayaking plays in the lives and activities of the public .
