Description

To the west of the Brazilian city of São Paulo is Pico do Jaraguá. As the tallest mountain in São Paulo, it towers over the sprawling metropolis. This challenging hike is four kilometers up to the peak for an incredible view of São Paulo. The hike is surprisingly peaceful, considering the mountain overshadows the vastness of this impressive urban area. On your hike up, you’ll be surrounded by beautiful plants and even catch a glimpse of the small monkeys native to the area. After hiking up four kilometers, you will be rewarded by dazzling views of the seemingly endless metropolis of São Paulo.

Born and in raised São Paulo, a large metropolis of almost 12 million people, you would think that I didn’t spend much time in nature. But in fact, it was the opposite. This city is filled with incredible green spaces, forests, and wildlife.

As a child, I joined the Boy Scouts and learned all about the wilderness, camping, and gave me a love for adventure. In college, I studied finance and business administration. Through my jobs that followed after graduation, I got the opportunity to travel around North America, Europe, and South America. This instilled a passion for travel that was so strong I decided to switch career paths. I began working in tourism in 2010 because I wanted to help other people have the kinds of meaningful experiences that I had when I traveled. My tours are for an adventurous traveler who is seeking the unconventional. Follow me into the woods to see some spectacular waterfalls, wildlife and majestic views.
