Breathtaking scenery from Ilha Grande's best panoramic viewpoint on a 8h tour
On this unparalleled experience, I will guide you on a night hike through the Atlantic Forest to watch the spectacular Sunrise on the very top of the Parrot's Peak (Pico do Papagaio) at 982m above the sea level.
Pico do Papagaio is the second highest peak of Ilha Grande but the one with the most amazing views of Ilha Grande and surroundings. On clear days you will be able to see as far as "Pedra da Gavea" in Rio de Janeiro.
The hike is arduous but the rewards are countless, starting from the hike itself that offers the unique opportunity of encounters with night wildlife on the way up and day wildlife on the way down, the indescribable views from the top, that depending on the date can also be great for stargazing and/or moon watching, to the best Sunrise views you can find in Ilha Grande.
An unmissable experience for those who like adventures or looking for a no ordinary tour.
This hike is considered extreme level and will demand lots of physical effort.
We meet at your hotel reception around 2 am (maybe earlier on summer days or if you think you may need extra time to reach the top)
As safety measure, we will have an auxiliary guide.
We will have a short safety debrief and each person will receive headlights (flashlight) and hiking stick.
Our hike starts with a mixture of unpaved road and trails until we finally reach the Parrot's Peak Trail, from that point onwards we immerse ourself in the deepness of the Atlantic Forest.
On the way up we will have some short breaks to catch up with our breath and with a bit o lucky to observe the wildlife.
Once we reach the top we will have time to relax and enjoy the rewards.
At the drawn can be cold, take a coat, wear comfortable clothes and shoes, I recommend to bring at least 2 l of water, although we will pass some water stream.
Once the spectacle is finished we start our descending back to Abraão Village.
