Day hike of 5 miles (8km) in the Chapada dos Veadeiros National Park. The circuit follows an old miners’ trail passing by the quartz crystal mines that gave rise to the settlement of São Jorge. Along the way you will see a wide range of vegetation typical of the high altitude cerrado. We will stop for a swim and hydro-massage beneath the Pedreiras waterfall, one of the main attractions of the National Park, set in the rocky valley through which Rio Preto tumbles in a series of cascades and natural swimming pools. After a picnic lunch you will return along a small path shimmering with fragments of quartz crystal.

Lunch in Alto Paraiso.

Transfer to Brasilia (3 hours, pm flight)



Depending of the flight time:

Abseiling down the middle of the Almecegas waterfall, a descent of 135 ft (45m) over rock and water and into a large natural swimming pool below.
