Full description

Get in the mood for adventure and join a hiking tour of the trail in Serra da Cantareira and contemplate the best views of the city of São Paulo. After pickup at your hotel in São Paulo, depart for the northern part of the city. After a forty-minute journey, enter the Cantareira State Park, a natural reserve that extends over more than 7,900 hectares. In Serra da Cantareira, start the walk that will take you to Pedra Grande. Along the way, contemplate the lush natural landscape, in addition to observing the animals that live in the park. Keep your eyes open and, with a little luck, you will see some monkeys. After an hour and a half of walking, stop at the edge of Lake of the Carp, where you can recover and relax in the middle of nature. Continue the journey for another thirty minutes, until reaching Pedra Grande, a viewpoint located 1010 meters above sea level, from where you can enjoy incredible views of São Paulo and the valleys that surround the city. The contrast between the metropolis and the special forest is truly incredible. The guide will also bring you some snacks and refreshments for you to eat and drink during the walk, enough to keep you well until getting back to the hotel. On your return to São Paulo, you will have the opportunity to ask the guide for more information about the local nature, but also about the history of the region. Conclude the activity, arriving back at the starting point in São Paulo.
