We only had one full day on Ilha Grande (a mistake on our part, we really should have stayed longer), so we decided to do the hike in the night to make the most of our stay and still have time to hit the beach....More

A demanding hike of nearly 6h round trip is totally worth it for the stunning view of the sunrise. Tomas and Martin from Sunrise Pioneers are great guides - helpful, knowledgable and fun. Highly recommend their services (also booked a boat trip through them which...More
