Full description
Get away from the hustle and bustle of the city to the tranquil forests of the Atlantic on this day trip. A 50-minute drive away from downtown São Paulo, the Serra do Mar State Park is full of rushing falls, trickling streams, and lush vegetation. Visit the largest Atlantic Forest protected area in Brazil. Experience the rich flora, fauna and traditional culture. The Serra do Mar mountain range extends for approximately 1500 kilometers along the south and southeast coast of Brazil. Explore the area by foot on a 9-kilometer trail. Start from the park's main entrance and finish at the same place. The walk lasts about 5 hours, taking you on an old paved road with a winding route in the heart of the Atlantic Forest. On clear days, you can catch a view of the coast and surrounding cities including the first Portuguese settlement in Brazil, the city of Saint Vincent. Explore the rich biodiversity of the Atlantic Forest on the way. The place is home to a precious environmental heritage, characterized by the Atlantic Forest. Soak in the scenic beauty along with historical and cultural information from your guide about the state of São Paulo. Then, take a walk down Calçada do Lorena, the first paved path in Brazil that boosted trade and production connecting São Paulo to the coast. Learn how this path played a part in the country's history and declaration of independence.
