Pico do Papagaio, Ilha Grande

Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web
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. Before you head to Ilha Grande, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Ilha Grande itinerary maker, to make sure you see all that Ilha Grande has to offer, including Pico do Papagaio.

  • The trail is of average difficulty and in dense forest. I don't recommend going on rainy days. Every sacrifice of ascent is rewarded by a wonderful landscape. Recommend down before dusk. Bring water. Very clean days is possible to see the Pedra da Gávea.

  • Great trail, takes around 3h30 to go up, 3h down. Great 360° view of the island at the end !
  • Top view of Ilha Grande !!!
  • i dont know how long did it take to be on the top , but definetely it is worthy
  • Você vai ver logo que chegar à Abraão. Não recomendaria a subida, pois há tantas praias para desbravar, que só diria que compensa caso realmente já conheça todas as praias da Ilha Grande
  • Fenomenal, quem tiver a oportunidade de conhecer, não pense duas vezes, é coisa linda.
