Pico do Papagaio, Ilha Grande

4.8
#3 of 6 in Nature in Ilha Grande
Hike through the rainforest and up to Pico do Papagaio, the highest point on the island. Take some light food, plenty of water, and hire a local guide to take you up this steep climb. The trek can take several hours to complete, and you do need an experienced local to show you the way through the thick Brazilian jungle. This trail is worth every drop of sweat, because at the top (which looks like a parrot, hence the peak’s name) you are rewarded with a view of the entire island and the town below . Pick a clear day to avoid clouds obscuring the final vista. Lucky visitors also get to see howler monkeys, the region’s noisiest residents. With our custom trip planner, Ilha Grande attractions like Pico do Papagaio can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • I was on the tour with our guide Martin and can only say that it was worth to 100%. The tour is absolutely recommended Martin was a highly professional, friendly, and attentive guide with guide. It starts around 02:00 in the morning on the beach and runs 3 h approx. up to the Summit. The climb is for anyone who is somewhat athletic and has no knee problems to overcome. The stay at the Summit makes up for everything. It was an exciting, exciting and challenging tour, I can recommend to everyone. Caution: Make sure that you book at sunrisepoineers! They know their stuff. Is the price for what you get offered absolutely justified

  • Out to run and the idea was to run on the tracks, but the difficulty is great because the altimetry, but is valid for the landscape.

  • EXCELLENT! We did the night walk with Martin and Thomas (from Sunrise Pioneers) and was an incredible experience thanks to the enthusiasm of both. Begins at 2:00 am, it is estimated about 3 hours of ascent to the peak and then expected there until dawn. Then are approximately other 3 hours down, although imposes it real time the rhythm of the group. It is a path which has its demand, but becomes a step considering the speed of the whole group. The view from the top is beautiful. They provide flashlights and a cane for camianr. They do not provide water or snacks, so you have to take them. I recommend not required too much the day before (example, not walk to beach Dois Rios). We liked the color data interesting that Thomas was giving about the flora and fauna that we saw. Which have also taken photos/videos and have passed them to us. HIGHLY recommended

  • Parrot Peak was an amazing place to hike while in Ilha Grande. It took around 4 hours to reach the summit, but the views during and after sunset were well worth it.
  • I've been twice at the top. It gives you an Amazing 360 degree view of the Island. A correction, due to the resemblance of a parrot BEAK the real name is PEDRA DO BICO DO PAPAGAIO (PARROT BEAK) not PEAK! aprox. 1.000 mts high.
  • Five stars for the amazing view you get on the top. You must know this is not an easy hike, it demands strength due to the steep natural stairs formed by trees that take you up 1000 meters! Take enough water and food, plan ahead if you want to make it up there so to be back before dark. It is very easy to get lost at night in the mountain, take a flashlight always just in case. In case of any doubts ask the local guides for information
  • Great trail, takes around 3h30 to go up, 3h down. Great 360° view of the island at the end !
