"9-day trekking around Ilha Grande - Rio de Janeiro.
This trail is a mix of tracks in enclosed woods, sometimes with large slopes, and walks in the sands of long beaches. During this trek, I had the opportunity to see the most beautiful beaches in Rio and to interact with the local community of Ilha Grande."
