#5 of 13 in Nature in Paraty
Pao de Acucar Peak offers a panoramic view of the region from 500 meters (1,600 ft) above the Mamanguá tropical fjord, the only one of its kinds in Brazil. You can access this rare view of unspoiled jungle and curving Brazilian coastline by climbing a trail through lush Atlantic rainforest, home to a number of native plant and animal species. The trail is not very steep and is suitable for hikers of all ages and levels of fitness. You can reach the top in about 90 minutes, but take care to bring plenty of water, a light snack, and a good camera, of course. Guided hiking trips are available from local tour operators. Join in and combine this hike with a day of sea kayaking. Put Pao de Acucar Peak into our Paraty trip app to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Paraty.

  • Imposing Rocky massif, which I don't know need the height, which is facing the Saco do Mamanguá. Who had resistance to climb the trail that leads to the top, said that the view from the top is breathtaking.

  • Climbing with moderate difficulty (1.5 Km and 500 m of ascent) the middle of the Atlantic forest. The peak, you have the ultimate vision to understand this magnificent Cove which is the Saco do Mamanguá. Has to go! Guide is not necessary.
