I'm not a morning person but I'm so glad I got up early for this hike to the top with Martin of Sunrise Pioneers! Beautiful scenery, great people and a view like no other that lives on in my heart... Highly recommended!

A great experience that really delivers on the effort of getting up early and climbing up a hill. I would encourage everyone to do it.

We hiked up to Parrot Peak, setting off at 08:30. On the way up we met a party coming down who had watched the sunrise - it must have been beautiful as the sun rises over the sea to the East and the peak offers a perfect view. On a cloudless day the views are stunning of the island and... More

The hike to Pico do Papagaio was one of our highlights during our stay in Brazil. We were recommended to do the hike only together with a tour guide, so we chose to do it with the Argentinian guides Guillermo and Martin!! After receiving head flashlights, we started our hike at 2:30 am (depends if you go during summer or... More

Before leaving on the hike we had a look with Martin at the weather and it looked like it would be great. (But we were stuck on the crowd) It nature, so this is no ones fault but this is the only reason I'm not giving 5 stars Martin is passionate about what he does and knows a lot about... More

Fale com um guia se quer fazer a caminhada noturna. Não vá sozinh@. You better ask for a tour guide if you want to enjoy the best night hike in Brazil. Don go alone. Contrate un guia si prefiere hacer la caminata nocturna. No vaya sol@.

My boyfriend and I did the sunrise trek with a guide, Martin, on 23 May. The trek was rather ardous but the spectacular sunrise and gorgeous views of Ilha Grande made the trek totally worthwhile. The trek is 10.8km per way. The peak is around 980m, which means we were pretty much ascending all the way during the climb. Our... More
