Private Custom Trip

Two days tour

Explore the beauty of the mountain and the ocean from a unique vantage point of view. Hike up with us and have an amazing sight of Paraty Bay, Ilha Grande, Angra´s nuclear plants and Paraíba Valley.

The best time to go to Macela’s Rock is just before dawn, so depending on weather conditions, it is possible to see the sun rising at the sea. It´s once in a life time experience!

Macela´s Rock is an overlook (1,840m=6,036ft), at the top of mountain range, situated between Serra da Bocaina and Serra do Mar.

To reach the top of the rock, you will walk 2km (1,243mi) up the hill. Depending on physical conditions, it could take 40/80 minutes. The track is paved, although very inclined. But the landscape makes it worth it.

The rock is located 280km (3,5hours by car) from Sao Paulo, capital.

As complementary activities, you might want to visit waterfalls, ecological trails, ceramic atelier and the local restaurants that serve trout, raised in the city.
