Hi! I am a professional nature guide with a great experience guiding people in the trails of Santa Catarina Island (Florianopolis) and Chapada Diamantina (Bahia) - two amazing places for hiking and to be connected with the nature. We have excellent values for groups of up to 9 people. Even one person will be also welcome. Nine is the maximum number for one group, this way we can guarantee the quality of our work and minimize the environmental impact. My work is also my life mission - bring people closer to nature - waterfalls, forests, beaches, mountains, flora and fauna. Meditation, yoga and chikung are also available and can help us in this connection with nature - the primary energy source. We can also offer surf and kaiak experiences - excellent sports for body, mind and spirit. Biking is also a very good choice here and we can help you with this. Welcome to Floripa. Come with Aventura Zen to have an unforgettable day in nature.
