About Rafting and Hiking Adventure in Rio:
Our Rafting and Hiking Adventure in Rio happens near the disctric of Sana, in Casimiro de Abreu city, around 02 hours from Rio city. The Macaé river where our rafting happens, is 80 km (50 miles) long with a rafting course of 8 km (5 miles) long. On the first day we have the rafting experience, that can last from 3 to 4 hours, according to the water level. The course has around 20 rapids, ranging from level 01 to 05 in summer, 01 to 04 in spring, 01 to 03 in fall and 01 to 02 in winter . Usually, in summer we have a higher water level, which increases its difficulty and speed. So in those days, rafting experience is more intense but with a shorter ride. In winter, the ride can be a little longer as water level decreases, as does the speed. The average water temperature is around 22º C (70ºF), year round. The landscape along the rafting course is awesome, and travelers can witness the lush vegetation of the Atlantic Forest . We also get to hike in Sana, which is a charming little village with lots of trails and waterfalls. This is a great chance to get away from the big city and get to know the esquisite country side of Rio state.

At night , the group can choose from a camp fire by the river or to go to the district of we go to Sana, which is a sort of hippie village 20 minutes away from our base.
