Ilha Grande - Custom Package
What to expect...
Welcome to a Brazilian paradise! Here you'll find, serenity, nature and beautiful sunsets. You'll be transfered by land or water to the so-called Big Island, where you'll find numerous ways to spend your time. Ilha Grande is famous for its varied vegetation and the various trails that take you to the most beautiful beaches in the country. Be sure to see the Blue Lagoon and the Pico do Papagaio before you go; true highlights of the area!
Our transfer will pick you up at your hotel in Rio de Janeiro or Paraty and take you to Angra dos Reis, where you'll travel the rest of the way by ferry. After about 90 minutes riding on the bay between the mainland and Ilha Grande, you'll finally reach the island town Abraão. Here, you'll spend the next few days. Let yourself be enchanted by the lush vegetation of the island under their spell and make this stay an unforgettable experience! Take a dip in the Bay of Abraão in the morning, sunbathe in the afternoon and dance on the church square Abraãos in the evening. For your first day on Ilha Grande, we recommend a walk to Praia Preta, a stretch of beach not far from Abraão. Stroll along this black-sand beach and dive into the cool water. On your way back to the hotel you will then pass the ruins of an ancient aqueduct, which was part of a hospital founded in the 19th century.
Pousada Mata Nativa*
Today will lift your soul. Enjoy free time at local beaches or wander through Ilha Grande and see what the island has to offer. The island is small enough to reach everywhere by foot. You won't even see cars here! We recommend visiting one of the most beautiful beaches in the country, Lopes Mendes. Here you can relax, surf or swim! Another great activity would be to do a 3-hour hike through the island forests. Along the way, you'll reach numerous vistas to marvel at the island sights. Finish out the day with a typical sea fish meal at the sea side. All in a day of paradise.
Pousada Mata Nativa* Breakfast
Another free day for you to use at your disposal. Why not take a boat trip to numerous bays along the island? Along the way you can treat yourself to fruits, drinks and food on board. We cannot recommend the Blue Lagoon or the Lagoa Azul enough. Snorkel in the turqoise waters and watch the fish swim by! Enjoy another day of paradise under the warm sun.
Pousada Mata Nativa* Breakfast
When you return to the mainland today, be sure to pack your bags. The boats will leave for the Cais de Santa Luzia in Angra dos Reis in the morning. Let yourself reflect about your trip on your 90 minute boat ride and start planning and get excited for your next adventure. Should you wish to stay longer in Brazil, we have other exciting destinations that can easily be paired with Ilha Grande.

Pico do Papagaio Hike
If you're looking for a little more action on your holiday, you can hike several trails on the Ilha Grande island. This particular hike is rather demanding, so you will be accompanies by a guide. Starting in the early morning. you will ascend 982 metres for roughly 3 hours to Pico do Papagaio. Once you are at the top of this second highest peak of the island, you will be spoiled with a breathtaking near-300 degree view of the entire island. In good weather, you are even able to see the mainland, from Angra dos Reis to Rio de Janeiro. Be sure not to stay too long, as the dense canopy roof causes it to rapidly become dark, so an early start on this hike will offer you ample time for the hike and the view.
