If you’re not an animal lover before you go to the Pantanal, you will be by the time you leave – there is no better place to see wildlife in South America.

It’s the only place on earth where encountering the majestic jaguar is more probable than possible.

Ciclismo Classico is excited to announce a NEW photography tour of Brazil’s Pantanal. Guests will explore the largest contiguous wetland on the planet while photographing its spectacular wildlife on a tour led by master photographer Ossian Lindholm. The Pantanal is one of the world’s last great wildernesses, a World Heritage Site and UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, containing elements of the Amazon Rainforest, Brazilian Savannah, and Paraguayan Chaco, including hundreds of bird and fish species, dozens of mammals, and an assortment of unique reptiles and amphibians. This wildlife tour provides close-up views of distinctive regional fauna such as tapirs, giant anteaters, caiman, capybaras, howler monkeys, giant river otters, the hyacinth macaw, toco toucan, and hopefully the stealthy jaguar! Slated for August 28 – September 7, 2015, this Pantanal photo journey starts at $6,790. For more information, visit
