Description

You will be picked up early in the morning from your hotel in Rio for a day trip to Ilha Grande.

Ilha Grande is a hiking and nature lovers paradise located in the south of Rio in the Angra dos Reis Bay.

Enjoy a 2 hours scenic drive along the Green Coast, the largest remaining area covered with Atlantic Rain Forest. Then, take a 30 minutes boat ride to Ilha Grande.

Upon arrival at the village of Abraão at Ilha Grande, you'll be amazed by the scenic beauty, unspoilt tropical beaches, luxuriant vegetation and rugged landscape of this 200km2 island.

The island hosted Brazil's largest high security prison during most of the 20th century, which is why it was kept relatively isolated and largely unspoiled. In 1994, the prison was closed and the island became a state park with no roads and cars, which makes a paradise for hiking.

Your 3hours hike through the rain forest of the island will enable you to discover the numerous beaches of transparent green water such as Palmas, Mangues or Pouso beaches linked by well kept trails.

Stop at 5 different beaches including a longer stop at the famous wild natural beach of Lopes Mendes.

From Lopes Mendes, take a boat ride back to Abraão village where you'll have time for lunch and walking around the village.

In the afternoon, take the boat back to the Green Coast and relax during the ride back to Rio.
