BUCKET LIST TRAVEL
RIO. AMAZON JUNGLE. SAMBA. BEACH.
TRIP OF A LIFETIME: AMAZON JUNGLE TOURS & RIO
The COVID-19 crisis taught us that life is short. People have regrets. Go out. Create memories. Live life. If you wonder where to travel after Coronavirus – well, the time has come to reward yourself.
Be part of an epic adventure of 11 days in Brazil having unique, memorable experiences in Rio de Janeiro, the Amazon jungle, and on some of the most fabulous beaches in the world. What’s in it for you?
Everything is on a silver platter: all accommodation paid (hotel on the famous Copacabana beach), pick up from & drop off at the airport, private driver, Samba classes, visits to Christ the Redeemer and the Sugarloaf mountain, escape for a weekend to Paradise (you’ll see where, below), fly over Rio de Janeiro by paragliding, go to the Amazon jungle for an unbelievable adventure, fishing for piranhas, a day on a boat in the ocean, and more.
Plus: meet and be inspired by 10 other entrepreneurs, uniquely selected for this adventure, to make friends for a lifetime and be part of an exclusive group – The Spark Society – that’s forming a tradition of going on further adventures and trips of a lifetime together.
In 2022, we are stronger than ever. If you are new to us, read what’s in the package. Let’s see.
Next Available Dates: January 4-14, 2023 (SOLD OUT) or January 17-27, 2024 (open for applications, see form below)
Brazil Vacation Packages: Why This is #1
After setting up exclusive trips to the Maldives, Thailand, Italy, Transylvania, Colombia or Argentina & Uruguay, we’re opening an invitation for 10 people to come to Brazil. 11 days. 10 amazing, interesting people. Exclusive group. One life-changing experience. Spark all your senses.
Wanna See How your Spark Trip Looks Like?
Watch the video below to see a sample of how a SPARK Experience looks like (recently done in Brazil):
1. Accommodation & Daily Breakfast
Your 10 nights in Brazil are covered. You will have breakfast provided every day and we will stay at a beachfront hotel on the famous Copacabana!
2. Private Driver From/To The Airport
You’ll be picked up at the Rio de Janeiro airport by our private driver. A ride to the airport on your last day is also scheduled.
3. Visit Christ the Redeemer
No trip to Rio de Janeiro is complete without a visit to the famous statue of Christ the Redeemer. We’ll go together and get some goosebumps and, well, selfies. Your ticket is paid.
4. Fly Over Rio by Paragliding
You will be one of these guys in the picture. Our partners in Rio de Janeiro are certified paragliding instructors. We’ll go together on an adventure that will never be forgotten.
5. Samba Class
Samba, anyone? YES. We’ll do it! Well, you don’t have to be dressed like the girl in the picture above (unless you want to), but we will have fun making fools of ourselves. Or maybe not.
6. Escape for a Weekend to a Little Paradise
See this image? You will be able to take the same picture from the exact same spot because that’s where we will be. We will go to one of the best-kept secrets of Brazil, Arraial do Cabo. Not your regular Brazil vacation packages.
7. A Day on a Party Boat
While we’re away over the weekend , we will be invited on a party boat. Caipirinhas, beer, and swimming in the turquoise waters. Winner.
8. Amazon Jungle Getaway
Partying, drinking, swimming, and relaxing is cool, but the Amazon jungle is an experience that you can’t miss and never forget. We’ll get three adrenaline-rushed days there and will be worth it.
9. See an Unexplained Wonder
Look at the image. What you see are two massive rivers: Rio Negro and Rio Solimoes. They meet but DO NOT blend! Do you see that little boat in there? You’ll be there. This trip will be unforgettable.
10. Fishing for Piranha
Yup, we will do that. The red-belly piranhas are the most vicious ones, but no worries. If you catch one we’ll unhook it for you. That night we will have for supper whatever we catch so you might as well start practicing.
11. Catch & Release Caimans
This may not be for everyone, but we will pet some of these guys. We are not going to hurt them, we’ll let them back in the wild right away. One of the best Amazon jungle tours ever.
12. Flight Rio-Amazon Rainforest
To get into the Amazon jungle we will need to take a plane from Rio de Janeiro to Manaus, usually worth over $400US. This ticket is paid. Here is how the Amazon looks from above.
17. A Surprise!
As usual in every Spark trip, we will have a little surprise for you. We promise a trip different than the other Brazil vacation packages, so it is.
18. Visit Sugarloaf
Another popular attraction in Rio de Janeiro is Sugarloaf – a sharp, edgy mountain that you can access only by cable car. We’ll go there for a magnificent Rio birds-eye-view. Your ticket is included.
19. COVID-19 Travel Insurance
We are proud to provide our special guests full COVID-19 travel insurance.
20. Exclusive Group
You will be part of an exclusive group of people who will be careful selected. They will share the same values, hobbies and beliefs.
21. Domestic Transportation
To all the places that we will visit in Brazil, we will have the transportation covered. We’ll travel as a small, exclusive team – all together, making friends for life.

✗ Your average trip.
**No, we won’t be riding an ostrich in Brazil. We will have to go to Curacao for that. 🙂

WHO ARE THE 10 SELECTED APPLICANTS?
Similar to the Spark Experience participants who join the Maldives, Italy, Transylvania, Argentina & Uruguay or Colombia trips, we are carefully selecting the people that will be coming to Brazil. Hence the application form at the bottom of this page. Here is why.
The people you meet are a meaningful part of a travel experience, especially if you want to turn it into one of those trips of a lifetime. Do you know how sometimes there’s someone in a group who the rest refers to as: ‘that guy’ or ‘that chick’? That’s not going to happen here. After phone interviews, researching social media profiles, and getting references, we’ll put together our travel dream team. You’ll be with people who have life stories to tell and knowledge to share.
We want all 10 participants to leave as best friends at the end of the Brazilian adventure. The Spark Experience offers life-changing trips. The idea is to keep in touch forever, become an exclusive community over time, and go on other memorable, bucket list trips together.
Here is the kicker: you won’t know who the other travel partners are until a week before the trip!
What else makes this trip one of the best Brazil vacation packages?
What else makes this trip different than the other Brazil vacation packages or Amazon jungle tours? The people. We are not just going into the jungle, but have some classy, elegant evening in Rio de Janeiro.
HAVE YOU MET YOUR HOST? HERE IS WHY YOU SHOULD TRAVEL WITH HIM
Your main host will be Sorin Mihailovici, the producer of the Travel by Dart series. One of the best things that happened to him was to be laid off from his TV job. It forced him to find ways to support himself and challenged his entrepreneurial spirit.
Sorin’s breakthrough came after a trip to South Africa that he initially didn’t want to take because he wanted “to wait until he makes more money”. However, his best friend pushed him to go. Although Sorin spent more money than he anticipated, the African getaway changed his life. It made him realize that life experiences are far more intrinsically valuable than things, it revitalized his mind, sparked his imagination, and inspired him to create the venture that ended up being his bread and butter today. You’re just about to be part of it.
Some Inspiration For YouIf you’re looking for a creative spark, Sorin is an entrepreneur who has been a TV producer, made the State’s “most wanted” list in Romania, acted in movies and commercials, and created his own series, Travel by Dart. Sorin is also the founder of the mega-popular Scam Detector, a website that exposes fraud from all over the world, so traveling safe is his priority. He’s been featured on Forbes, ABC, BBC, CBS, FOX, Global, CTV, and pretty much all the major media platforms in the world. We really hope to meet you in Brazil, for an event that’s not comparing to any of the regular Brazil vacation packages or Amazon jungle tours. So come with us, and let’s make some real magic together. We are not a travel agency. We are a lifestyle agency.
THE TEAM CAPTAIN
The reason you’re reading this page. 60 countries visited. Over 400 flights taken. Did a few Amazon jungle tours already.
the house manager
Well, we will have to sleep at some point. Maybe. If we will, Flavia will be the one responsible for the beachfront hotel stay.
Carlos is our local connection and the reason this trip will happen, really. He's also a certified paragliding instructor. You'll fly with him.
Taking Amazon jungle trips without someone who knows what’s up there is crazy. That’s why we have Raul, best guide ever.
the other wild
Just in case Raul is busy catching a sloth, Gonzalo steps in. He takes the Amazon jungle guiding to the next level.
This guy not only will take us everywhere as our private driver, but he will serenade us as well. It comes with the job.
