The trek starts by a short incline then enters the Atlantic forest (Mata Atlantica), at the heart of the "Ecological preservation area of Joatinga". After an hour and a half of pleasant walking, we reach, at lunchtime, the hamlet of Sono, located on the border of one of the nicest beaches of the region, Praia Do Sono. Literally meaning "sleepy beach", Praia Do Sono invites us, because of its name and also because as soon as we get back on the road, a short but very steep hill awaits us. After this climb, the hike becomes a lot less demanding. This is the only difficulty of the walk. We successively pass Praia Da Velha and Praia Dos Antigos before arriving, Due to the nature of the activity, weather is a major factor, therefore in case of bad weather the tour can be re-scheduled.
Travelling abroad always enthralls unforeseen issues. So that you avoid these unnecessary complications I offer you the option for your transfer from either Rio or Sao Paulo to Paraty, or the reverse.
