Darwin's Rainforest Trail
Rio/Sao Paulo Brazil

Simply Enchanting...

In 1832 the Atlantic rain-forest overwhelmed Charles Darwin with its spectacular beauty and biological diversity. This exotic trail introduces you to the same exuberant and lush Brazilian forests of ancient trees and promises to enthrall you the same way it enchanted the young Darwin. Ride through the rural landscape of rolling hills with local pigs and goats visiting us along the way.  The melody of singing birds will follow us as we ride and we may spot a toucan with its brightly colored beak or a lengthy lizard scurrying up the hillside for cover. We will make steep climbs, up and up to the top to enjoy some the most breathtaking mountain vistas you will ever find around the globe. Verdant rain-forest will change into deep, thick jungle that will eventually climb upwards into impressive jagged mountain tops. Then onward we horseback ride through fields of grazing cattle and splash through the cool mountain springs.  Dismount and  refresh with a dip and a swim in a cool and shady pool below a splashing waterfall, and then  dry yourself off on a rock in the sunshine like one of the many lazy lizards who sun bathe themselves during the day. If this sounds inviting to you keep on reading – this may be the trip of a lifetime for you.

The state of Rio de Janeiro is home to some of the best-preserved parts of the Atlantic Rain-forest of Brazil thanks, in part, to the tough inaccessibility of some of the remote mountainous areas. The vegetation is thick and lush and simply fantastic. Many trees absolutely drip with epiphytes and there are an enviable variety of orchids and bromeliads. The dramatic mountains of this area can be seen all the way from the city of Rio de Janeiro! Despite so much beauty on the way, for many the best of the ride is still the end, the last day of riding on some of the most beautiful beaches of the Brazil.

During the week you ride on narrow tracks through the rain forest, over pastures, crossing rivers and following winding mountain trails on one of our well trained and lovingly cared for Peruvian Paso horses. The horses are calm and comfortable, and the breed offers the namesake paso llano gait, so much easier than trotting on your behind and back! Your accommodations vary from rustic and simple refuge on the first night to comfortable farm guesthouses along the trail.

Come fall in love with the enchanting rain-forest of Brazil - it's people, wildlife, ancient flora and unique Peruvian Paso horses!
