SUNDAY, MAY 27, 2018
IRONMAN Brazil will take place on the beautiful island of Florianopolis. Florianopolis is known as the "Island of Dreams" and has 42 beautiful beaches. It is a favorite hang-out for dolphins and whales. Brazilians and Argentines love to vacation on Florianopolis not only for its beaches but also for its culture, history, food, nightlife and well protected diverse ecosystems.

The Brazil IRONMAN course is fast, scenic, and safe. The ocean swim is beach-protected, so there is virtually no chop. The two-lap triangular swim course will be wetsuit legal. The bike course starts from the transition area at Jurere Beach, and is fast with mostly flat road surfaces with a couple of "decent" hills. The out-and-back run course will be completely illuminated and in an open-air mall near the central transition area.

Air Travel

Airfare through EST's ticketing agent will be available in 2017, however we do not require you to book your flights through us. We do recommend that you contact us before purchasing your own airfare or using frequent flyer miles. Endurance Sports Travel is working with a local ticketing agent to provide airfare for you upon request.
Flights are available from all destinations worldwide. We will send you a quote after receiving your departure and return dates. Please be sure to advise us of your name as it reads on your passport prior to requesting airfare!

Endurance Sports Travel is here to service you and we allow as much flexibility as possible in arranging your trip. We therefore allow people to purchase a ground only package. This means you can either purchase your own air ticket or use frequent flier tickets for your travel. Please look at the following before doing either of these to be sure that this is best for you.


Transportation between hotel and airport and daily transportation within Jurere and Canasvieiras is included in the hotel package. Therefore a rental car is not necessary. However, if you want a rental car, one can be arranged for you from our staff office in your hotel or with EST prior to arrival in Florianopolis.

Visa Information

U.S. and Canadian citizens need to have a visa to travel to Brazil. Citizens of some other countries are also required to have a Brazilian Visa to enter the country.

Citizens of EU countries do not need a Brazilian Visa. It is best to apply for a Tourist Visa (5yrs). Mentioning the race may yield a limited (90 day) visa and complicates the process but this is your decision.

You can contact the Brazilian Embassy nearest you, however, we advise using a visa service to avoid hassles. We have used visa services and they are very convenient but it does add an extra cost to the process. If you apply early, working directly with the Embassy shouldn't be a problem. The service we are most familiar with is Visa Central.

Visas can only be applied for within 90 days of travel but I suggest that you apply in March so that you do not have any problems. If you have been to Brazil recently check the visa stamp in your passport as most tourist visas are good for multiple entries of 90 days for 5 years from when you received the visa stamp. Make sure your passport does not expire soon, it must be valid for at least 6 months after your trip is scheduled to end.
