Experience the Green Coast Magic

Explore iconic Rio de Janeiro, hike through Tijuca National Park, discover the colonial charm of Paraty, and relax on the pristine beaches of Ilha Grande and Ubatuba.

Visiting the Green Coast of Brazil is an immersive experience that combines natural beauty with a vibrant cultural heritage. Stretching along the southeastern coast of the country, this enchanting region offers a diverse array of attractions and activities that will leave you awe-inspired.

At the heart of the Green Coast lies Rio de Janeiro, a city renowned for its stunning landscapes and lively atmosphere. Begin your journey here, where the iconic Sugarloaf Mountain and Corcovado with the towering Christ the Redeemer statue provide panoramic views of the city and its emerald coastline. Explore the vibrant neighbourhoods of Copacabana and Ipanema, famous for their golden sandy beaches and vibrant nightlife. Immerse yourself in the rhythmic samba beats and join in the infectious energy of Carnival, an extravaganza of music, dance, and colourful costumes.

As you venture beyond Rio de Janeiro, you'll discover a wealth of natural wonders. The region is home to the Tijuca National Park, one of the world's largest urban forests, where lush vegetation, cascading waterfalls, and diverse wildlife await. Hike through the forest trails to reach the summit of Pedra da Gávea, a towering rock formation offering panoramic views of the city and the Atlantic Ocean.

Further south, the picturesque coastal town of Paraty beckons with its charming colonial architecture and cobblestone streets. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a delightful blend of Portuguese and Brazilian cultures, with its well-preserved buildings and lively cultural events. Explore the nearby islands and pristine beaches on a boat tour or delve into the history of the region by visiting the historic houses and churches that line the streets.

For nature enthusiasts, Ilha Grande is a must-visit destination. This car-free island paradise boasts lush rainforests, crystal-clear waters, and secluded beaches. Embark on hiking trails that lead to hidden waterfalls and enjoy snorkelling or scuba diving in the marine-rich waters surrounding the island. Relax on the untouched beaches, such as Lopes Mendes, often ranked among the most beautiful beaches in Brazil.

To complete your journey along the Green Coast, make a stop in Ubatuba, a coastal town famous for its countless stunning beaches and rich biodiversity. With over 100 beaches to choose from, you can indulge in sunbathing, surfing, or simply strolling along the pristine shores. Explore the Serra do Mar State Park, a vast area of protected rainforest where you can hike through lush trails, discover hidden waterfalls, and spot rare species of flora and fauna.

Visiting the Green Coast of Brazil offers an unforgettable blend of natural wonders and cultural delights. Whether you're seeking vibrant city life, pristine beaches, or untouched rainforests, this region will captivate you with its diversity and beauty. Embrace the warm Brazilian hospitality, indulge in excellent cuisine, and immerse yourself in the vibrant rhythms of this captivating destination.
