3 days of incredible hiking in the Paraty region with Axel
The host : I am Axel, a 32 years old french guy living in Rio for 7 years now! I turned an oficial tour guide in 2011 and I am pleased to make you discovering the many faces of the Wonderful City through different walking and dynamic tours : favelas, Tijuca Forest, Historical Centre, Santa Teresa Colonial District... Also we can combine full day tour in the wild and paradisiacal beaches of Prainha and Grumari, or on Niteroi side. We can plan hikings on several days in the protected Bocaina national Park next to Paraty or on Ilha Grande island... Along with 3 friends, I set up the Casa 48 Guesthouse, situated in a small and safe favela in the district of Santa Teresa : welcome for a unique relationship with the Sugar Loaf and Guanabara Bay! You are welcome at Casa 48 if you are looking for an authentic place to stay with a magnificent view on the city.
The experience : Paraty is an handsome preserved colonial city situated 4h south of Rio by car. But maybe the real treasure of the region is the Joatinga National Park, where you can hike several days in a luxurious vegetation to reach wild & deserted beaches and small fisherman villages. Great sea food is served for diner and we sleep in typical but cosy accomodations...! We will also join the Saco de Mamangua, a kind of fjord on 8 kilometers, with a unique ecosystem and peaceful environment. The ideal is to hike 3 days until the Saco de mamangua where we could stay more 2 days to enjoy its nature, its mangrove swamp by canoe, its natural waterfalls, or the splendid view from the Sugar Loaf mountain. It is the perfect place to relax and to feel on holidays.
