4/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web
Walk back in time as you follow Estrada Real, the paved road built by African slaves in the 18th Century to take gold and precious stones to ships bound for Portugal. It remains intact through Paraty’s incredible rainforest, and passionate “eco-historical” guides lead tours that immerse you in both nature and knowledge. While you have Paraty’s rich and colorful history explained to you, you also learn about the local flora and fauna. Stop to admire the wild raspberries and avocados your guide will find along the way. Towards the end of the gentle hike, you will stop at a beautiful waterfall run where you have a chance to swim and slide, before finishing the tour at a cachaça distillery that still makes Brazilian rum the traditional way. A taste of the finished product ensures you finish the day in high spirits. By using our Paraty itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Estrada Real and other attractions in Paraty.

  • Worth knowing, but respecting their limits and preferring to travel with clarity. Winding road ... Is to go walking ... in good ...

  • I went down the mountain during the day ... It is a unique experience.. Had told me that the sights were beautiful, but even with the high expectation was surprised. The saw is stunning ... However, it should be taken very carefully because the road is narrow, slope is accentuated and the curves are very dangerous.

  • The road is very well paved, but it is very narrow, guardrails are not in concrete and is two-way. Got fog during the whole course.

  • Lindo. Todos deveriam passar e prestigiar esta iniciativa
  • A história é muito bem contada por meio de maquetes dos pontos turísticos das cidades que compõem a estrada real! O trabalho do artesão é incrível! Uma iniciativa particular que merece reconhecimento!
  • Trabalho espetacular, mas ainda incompleto. Espero voltar em alguns anos, e poder ver o caminho da Estrada Real mais completo!
  • Excelente trabalho de arte. Tivemos um guia, o Marcelo, muito bom e atencioso. Ouvimos sobre a história da cidade e estrada Real. Recomendo!!
  • excelente opção para conhecer um pouco da historia de nosso país
