View from The Porcelet

Day 1:

After check-in you can enjoy the surroundings and watch the birds coming and going from the feeders on the lodges deck. After a typical brazilian meal we will hike through the Orchid and Bromeliad Garden and get the first impressions of the Atlantic Rainforest and we will take a closer look at our environmental project that is now 25 years old. This Eco-system is one of the five most important biological hotspots on Earth. It is believed that there are around 131 species of mammals and more than 800 species of birds in the Atlantic Rainforest. We will see trees, ferns, bromeliads, orchids and much more. The perfect setting for nature photographers!

Day 2:

After a wonderful breakfast, with delicious tropical fruits and fresh juices, Brazilian coffee and much more, we start our hiking tour up to the Porcelet 5,5 Km away and an altitude difference of 250 meters. From the top we will have a beautiful view of all of the region’s mountains and foothills, which includes part of the Três Picos State Park. We’ll be back at the lodge by early afternoon which will be free to swim in our natural swimming pool, enjoy a natural massage in our waterfall or stroll through the gardens or the Atlantic Rainforest, just a few yards from the main lodge. After dinner you can enjoy a cozy fire pit on the deck and enjoy the star lit evening sky, whilst reflecting on your days activities. Normal health and fitness level required for this itinerary.

Day 3:

After breakfast you will have some time to explore the Atlantic Rainforest and our trails on your own. Let the last impressions of this amazing environment sink in and then head back to Rio. This tour is not recommended for people with impaired mobility or who have serious health problems.
