Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro

Today we are delighted to present on a single blog post three spectacular videos with a common theme: Rio de Janeiro. They have been quite popular over the travel blogosphere over the last few months.

1. Rio, a miniature

A beautiful video of Rio de Janeiro combining the time-lapse technique with extensive use of the tilt-shift technique turning Rio into a miniature we can all play with. A joy to watch. It has a lengthy section on the Rio carnival that is absolutely fantastic.

2. Helicopter flight

It might not be the real thing but it certainly comes cheaper. Embark yourself on a high-resolution spectacular helicopter flight over Rio de Janeiro.

Barra da Tijuca is the starting point and the rest of the flight path, well, the rest of Rio de Janeiro sights you’ll probably recognize easily.

3. Rio for adrenaline junkies
