Contiki Holidays is inviting travellers to immerse themselves in the  Rio de Janeiro Carnival, which takes place next month from February 17-22.

The operator is promoting a six-day stay in the city with optional add-on trips for clients choosing to attend the carnival parade. As an example, clients have the opportunity to participate in the Samba parade in costume.

Clients will stay at the Ipanema Inn, located close to the shopping district and the beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana, with a bike ride and city tour included in the price, which leads in at £999 per person, land-only, based on two people sharing.  It includes breakfast accommodation, a highlight dinner and some activities such as a locally guided city bike tour and tour of Rio’s favelas.
