DO MAR PRA SERRA – from the SEA to the MOUNTAINS in SUNNY SOUTHERN BRAZIL – March 3rd – 10th, 2018, custom dates available

Come join us on this activity based trip to the culturally and naturally diverse region of Southern Brazil. The nearby sierra rises out of the ocean and not only generates unique local weather patterns but presents a formidable barrier to early colonizers of the state of Santa Catarina. Hence, the coast is decorated with small fishing villages and a surf culture while the neighboring mountain plateaus are picturesque with the Gaucho (South American cowboys) ranches and the colorful Gaucho culture. On the coast we will explore the most beautiful beaches in Brazil on Santa Catarina Island, raft through lush Atlantic rainforest, and sail along the coast to the Bay of Dolphins…


We will travel up the chiseled mountains of the Serra Geral to the Pousada MorroGrande, a 5th generation working ranch. We will horseback ride through rainbows of native wildflowers, majestic Brazilian pine forests, swim in the crystalline waters of the many waterfalls, rapel into a canyon, and hike through the surreal forms of rare and endemic giant tree ferns. We will visit the Serra do Rio do Rastro, recently voted the most beautiful road in the world. We will celebrate with a traditional Brazilian barbecue in the barn. We will feast on the succulent free range meat of the ranch, dance the lively traditional Gaucho dances, and be swept away in the warm atmosphere of the traditional Gaucho lifestyle.
