Eco Tourism at an Eco Farm

Experience agroforestry, bioconstruction, hikes, and horseback riding 

Eco Caminhos is the place for you if you like active holidays. We allow people to experience life on an eco farm in every possible way. You can learn about agroforestry, organic farming, and bioconstruction, go on hikes, enjoy wild camping in the mountains, and build campfires. You interact with the other people here as much as you like. We have weekly meetings and staff nights, we play games, and if you like to join us for a night into town you are more than welcome. Our program is voluntourism (something between volunteering and ecotourism).

Many people also come to Eco Caminhos to “discover themselves” and search for their purpose in life. The beautiful nature, rural tranquillity, and manual labor provide an excellent environment to reflect, be at ease, and liberate your mind. We offer several packages which you can choose from.

Eco Experience for people who like to stay longer

For individuals, couples, and small families.

Duration: 1 – 4 weeks

Our Eco Experience program balances volunteering and ecotourism. This is designed for people who want to enjoy an authentic, active experience at our eco farm in a beautiful green mountainous area in Brazil. You will be staying with a local Brazilian family, so you can immerse yourself in Brazilian rural culture. You will have the opportunity to practice your Portuguese, learn about local customs, and experience typical Brazilian cuisine. Believe us, Brazilians are very welcoming and the food is delicious! The program is very flexible. You can work 3 – 5 days per week at the eco farm in bioconstruction and organic farming. Eco Caminhos further organizes several activities, including Portuguese classes, hikes, campfires, and sightseeing.

Eco Group Experience 

For groups starting from 6 people 

Duration: 1 day – 2 weeks

Eco Caminhos has experience receiving groups. The great advantage of the Eco Group Experience is that we customize the program to your interests. We can organize bioconstruction, organic farming, and permaculture workshops. We can also propose a Caminhos in Action (CIA) short-term project addressing a specific need in the community. In the past, we have, for example, refurbished the house of an impoverished family over a weekend and built an organic farm at a local school. Of course, we can also organize hikes and camping weekends in the region’s beautiful mountains and parks.

We can organize your entire stay in Brazil

For you to experience Brazil to the fullest, we can offer a complete customized tourism package for you in Brazil. We recommend starting your Brazil trip with a language course at our partner school Caminhos Language Center in Rio de Janeiro, the city’s best and most fun school. In addition to following an intensive Portuguese language program, you can benefit from all the free activities the school organizes daily. You can do hikes, bicycle tours, beach volleyball, city tours, capoeira, and samba classes. The language school also has its NGO called Mais Caminhos and works with children from the “favelas” (shantytowns), who come to the school daily.

We can also organize your stay at Ilha Grande, a beautiful green island off the coast between Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. If you love nature, we suggest you go to the amazing Iguaçu waterfalls or spend a few days at an eco-lodge in the Amazon. Just get in touch with us and we can have a phone or Skype conversation and plan your entire Brazil experience.
