Since 2009 Tour Operator Paraty Explorer has been running small group active an adventure tours exploring the Bay and the Forest around Paraty with local guides. In 2019 Paraty was finally awarded UNESCO World Heritage site status for both Biodiversity and Culture. With this in mind we recommend you explore the Bay with its tropical islands, mangrove and beautiful sandy beaches AND the Rainforest covered mountains behind the town. Throw in a walking tour of the historic old town and you begin to feel what makes Paraty special. Exploring the bay by Boat, Sea Kayak (suitable for beginners) or Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) will be a highlight of any trip to Brazil. On our innovative and unforgettable Forest Forager tour the guides help you identify and collect amazing and tasty edible and flowers, leaves and mushrooms on trails in the Atlantic Forest. With so much to see and do make sure you make the most of your time in Paraty with Paraty Explorer!
