Why take this tour?

It's about the journey - Our hike is in the midst of the beauty and biodiversity of the Atlantic Forest. - The route is unpaved, uneven, and requires physical resistance and preparation for the 21km ahead of us. - With many attractions along the way, such as Curva da Morte viewpoint ☠, Soldados's Natural Pool, stone pavement (made by enslaved people and widely used in the 19th century), Caxadaço beach, a small paradisiacal beach with crystal clear water very inviting to the practice of snorkeling. - The beach is hidden behind a huge wall of rocks that makes it invisible to those who sail even close to the coast, for this reason, it was often used by pirates and slave ships for people trafficking. - To complete this spectacular hike, we arrived at Santo Antonio and Lopes Mendes beaches considered by many, some of the most beautiful beaches in the world where we will have free time to enjoy this earthly paradise.
