(4.9/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Pao de Acucar Peak a part of your Paraty vacation plans using our Paraty trip itinerary planner.

  • Wonderful view, is very worthwhile. The ascent takes about 40 minutes to walk. Suggested light clothes, comfortable shoes, drinking water, fruits and light snacks.

  • The ascent is not so easy, very steep in a closed trail with many roots along the way. Tiring. But it's worth every drop of sweat, because the view is incredible and pays off!

  • Is a place of difficult access. You have to take a boat to the beach of Saco do Mamanguá. And after about 1 hour of face. The name comes from the similarity with the Hill of Rio de Janeiro. Stunning views, wonderful trail, waterfall ... all good
