Arrive Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Welcome to Brazil! Upon arrival in Rio de Janeiro, you will be met by your guide for your private road transfer to Comuna do Ibitipoca. Along the way, after about an hour and a half, you will stop in Petropolis for lunch and a tour of the city. Often referred to as the Imperial City, Petropolis was the residence of Brazil’s only two emperors– Pedro I and Pedro II. Tucked away in Serra dos Orgaos National Park, here you will visit the Imperial Museum and the Sao Pedro de Alcantara Cathedral.
You will then continue on to Comuna do Ibitipoca. Accommodations will be reserved for three nights, including all meals and guided walking tours within the property.
Opened in 1984, the property sits on over 12,000 acres of land that is in the process of being rewilded. This includes the regeneration of native Atlantic forest, flora, and fauna in an area that was previously degraded. Bordering Ibitipoca State Park, the commune’s ethos centers on providing visitors with the opportunity to convene with nature and immerse into their natural surroundings, so as to gain a deeper respect for the environment.
Comuna also has a strict no plastics policy and supports multiple conservation projects in the area, such as Projecto Asas to help rehabilitate and reintroduce birds that are illegally trafficked and the conservation project striving to protect the endemic Muriquis Monkeys.
Upon arrival, relax and enjoy the remainder of the day at leisure!
