Day Treks in Florianopolis
Lagoinha do Leste- possibly the most beautiful beach in Florianopolis, only accessible by trail (about 1 ½ hours of steep walk each away) or boat. Great views on the way.
Naufragados- another beach only accessible by foot or boat. Easy walk of around 4 km each way through a nature reserve. Visit to a lighthouse and beautiful views of the south coast at the end.
Costa da Lagoa- an isolated fishing community accessible by trail or boat. The trail is 7 km long and the return can be done by boat. Quaint and very affordable seafood restaurants at the end to try the local food.
Lagoa do Peri & Sertão do Peri – a longer coast-to-coast walk (3 to 4 hours) passing through a lagoon, small rivers and waterfalls and remains of sugar cane mills. Panoramic views of the Serra do Tabuleiro and East Coast of the Island at the beginning and end.
Duration: 5 - 7 hours, depending on the trek
Level of Difficulty: Beginners to Intermediate, depending on the trek
Rafting in Santo Amaro
Santo Amaro, only 40 km away from the island, is the closest rafting base to Florianópolis. Rafting in the River Cubatão, with rapids class II-III, is ideal for beginners.
Intermediates wanting more adrenaline can also have fun: the “Duck”(inflatable kayaks) expedition is run further upstream in the “Alto Cubatão”, with rapids of level III-IV (optional trip).
The scenery along the river is beautiful: the right margin borders the Serra do Tabuleiro National Park, the biggest Atlantic Rainforest reserve in the vicinity of Florianopolis. These mountains, which are visible from everywhere in the city, have peaks over 5,000 feet, creating steep, narrow canyons rich in Mata Atlântica. Near the end of the run, close to the town of Caldas da Imperatriz, the scenery is more rural but still attractive.
Duration: 2 hours on the river, plus an hour each way for transfers.
Level of Difficulty: Beginners (class II-III)
South of the Island by bike
The south of the Santa Catarina Island in Florianopolis has nature reserves, waterfalls, beautiful lagoons and unspoiled beaches. We will cycle along the most famous southern beaches – Campeche, Morro das Pedras, Armação and Pantano do Sul, taking in also the Lagoa do Peri, a beautiful fresh-water lagoon surrounded by lush Atlantic Rainforest.
Duration: 6-7 hours
Level of Difficulty: Beginners
Transfers, 4 nights accommodation on a B&B basis in a Pousada, activities as described and snack lunch on days 2 and 4. Equipment for the rafting and biking trips. Bilingual guide on trips and transfers.
