Trip Planner: South America / Brazil / State of Rio de Janeiro / Angra Dos Reis / Ilha Grande / Pico do Papagaio
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.

This was a great tour. We opted to do the sunrise tour. We started out at 2/2.30 am and made it to the top by 5am. Our tour guide, Franco, was very fun and full of energy whilst motivating everyone...

Amazing experience up to the pick ! We had the chance to do the hike with the amazing Franco ! Lot of knowledge, very good advices, we were a bit worried about the difficulty of the hike but we felt very secured and very confident through the whole hike thanks to Franco ! And most importantly Franco is very friendly and fun :) The view there is wondeful and walking in the forest in the middle of the night is priceless
Difficult trail with few signs. Length 7,4 km. Walking time 6h. It’s worth a visit.
