Eco Farm visit and Hike

Visit our Eco Farm and Hike in the mountains

Availability: All year        Duration:  1 day (8 hours)         Start: 8 am

 

What will we be doing?

At the farm, we will start with a nice coffee or tea at our naturally built house. While you enjoy your drink we will give you a presentation about how we implement permaculture at Eco Caminhos. We then walk around the farm and visit the different bioconstruction and agroforestry projects. Between 12:00 – 13:00 hours you will be served a delicious meal with ingredients from our organic garden. After lunch, we will do a hike in the mountains. You can choose between an easy hike which takes approximately 2 hours or more advanced hike that takes approximately 3,5 hours. There will be served a small snack on the mountain peak.

 

 

You choose the hike

When you contact us we will discuss the different hiking options. For the 2-3 day program we have 2 possible hikes and wild camp options:

Peak: Piramide  –  height: 1486 m  –  distance:  2,5 km –  time: 1,5 – 2 hourscategory: average

If you are not used to hikes in the mountains we can recommend you the “Pirâmide hike” which is a short but steep hike (1 – 1,5 hours)

Peak: Chapeu da Bruxa  –  height: 1550 m  –  distance: 6 kmtime: 2 – 3 hourscategory: advanced

A bit further than the Piramide peak is the Chapeu da Bruxa. It is a beautiful hike. It does have a small area with a chain to climb the final part of the peak. We usually take rope for safety.
