Upon arrival at Florianópolis airport, your expert guide will greet and transfer you to Lagoa da Conceição. The drive is a short 25 minutes, perfect for travelers that are anxious to reach paradise.

Day 3

First, learn from an expert guide how to take care of the horses and then enjoy the breakfast buffet. After breakfast, saddle up and ride to the beautiful mountainside.

In the village, you will stop by a local pub and freshen up with a Skol or Bohemia, the local beer brands, and toast the inhabitants with a “saude!” Next, lunch will be served at a local host family. Later, you can continue to explore the surroundings of the Fazenda by horse and once again, you’ll enjoy a delicious, homemade meal, created by the host family.

Praia do Santinho Florianopolis Brazil Tour

Laguna, Canyons & Dolphins

Days 7

Enjoy breakfast in the Pousada Serra Bela. Then, gather your belongings, and drive to the magnificent lookout point “Morro da Igreja.” You will experience terrific views of the canyons that rest 1800 meters below! Then, travel to Corvo Branco. Corvo Branco is a fantastic place for nature exploration. Not only did you choose the non-paved road to arrive here, but also because you must see Laguna. At Laguna, the fishermen work together with wild dolphins in a channel. The dolphins drive the fishes to the fishermen an incredible nature scene, which you can only find here. Also, the experts can’t explain this phenomenon and Animal Planet has broadcasted a TV report worldwide. It will be quite the experience!

Return to "Ilha da Magia," the magical island of Florianópolis, in the evening.

You will stay another night at Pousada Casa da Lagoa and enjoy our last evening in Lagoa da Conceição.
