For those who enjoy hiking, this 7-day trip to Chapada Diamantina is a bucket list item. Considered one of the most beautiful crossings in Brazil, the Pati Valley is surrounded by incredible tepuy (cliffs), mountains, cascading waterfalls, and incredible natural beauty. Explore the Cachoeirão Waterfall and the Cave of the Castle, and learn about the history and local culture on overnight homestays.
The year 2010 marked the beginning of a journey of creation of the company Nattrip. Accessibility to ecotourism and adventure tourism was restricted, especially in Rio de Janeiro. There were still severe restrictions of public use to the existing Conservation Units, which went some way against what the world was experiencing. While other countries created policies to increase protected area visitation in an attempt to increase preservation, using the “understand to protect” approach, Brazil believed that prohibiting access was the best way to protect.
Thanks to the work of some conservation, tourism and sports entities, as well as some spheres of public power, this premise has gradually changed, giving space to a greater offer of experiences in the natural environment. We understand that people, whether tourists or residents, needed tours and specialized services to practice the activities that these places provide. This is to promote a healthy life and generate environmental knowledge by insertion into the environment, creating a basis for environmental sustainability, responsibility, mutual conviviality, and protection.
That’s when we decided to create a company specialized in the eco-adventure segment, which could promote the sector with responsibility. A form of entertainment that creates environmental education by osmosis. However, the mission of Nattrip was beyond just being a company that provides nature and adventure tours.
We design the company’s performance in all aspects of tourism in Brazil, aiming to be a national reference, which can translate into quality assurance. Today Nattrip is one of the main agencies and operators of receptive tourism in Rio de Janeiro, a respected adventure operator in Brazil and has been showing all its power in the corporate, educational and travel segments.
“Protect by enjoying and understanding, never forbidding!”

A true mountaineering paradise, Itatiaia National Park houses the highest point in the state of Rio de Janeiro: the majestic Pico das Agulhas Negras. In this 2-day Itatiaia expedition, you'll climb the two park's main rock formations, Agulhas Negras Peak and Prateleiras Peak, enjoying fantastic views of the park from both summits.
This trek through Three Peak State Park is one of the top areas for adventure in Brazil. Hike around some of the most famous formations in the Valley of the Gods—known as the "Brazilian Yosemite"—including Dragon's Head Peak and Matchbox Peak, known as the "Miracle Stone" for its unlikely formation.

Amazon, Brazil - Mar 17 - Mar 20, 2019
We had the most amazing experience with KimKim and our local specialist, Lucianna, was awesome. She took on board all of our requirements and arranged a perfect trip. We adjusted our dates a few times and Lucianna was able to adapt the plans quickly. She arranged every detail and shared these clearly with us. The trip far exceeded our expectations and we spent an amazing few days exploring the Amazon with plenty of activities - we even managed to fit in an overnight camping trip! Thank you so much!
Trek brazil's petrópolis-teresópolis crossing - 3 days, Brazil - Jan 27 - Jan 29, 2019
Life changing experience,
From the moment I arrived at the Nattrip lodge I knew it was going to be a great experience. Lucas and Guilherme ( the guides ) were very welcoming and even shared some of their home cooked diner. The trekking started the next day, and I have to say, the trekking days were absolutely amazing!! Both guides were very knowledgeable, caring and fun. The trek can be physically demanding at some points, but worth every effort. Actually most of the time it felt effortless... read more
Trek brazil's petrópolis-teresópolis crossing - 3 days, Brazil - Jan 4 - Jan 6, 2019
The views, trails, wildlife, plant life and accommodation were utterly fantastic and alone are enough to leave anyone astounded by what Rio and the mountains surrounding the state have to show; but we can’t give enough gratitude towards our guides, Lucas and Thalles for their constant humility, insight, care, humour and undying humanity. We trekked through the clouds, through the heat, through the mud and through the rain with total confidence and total assurance - we often sang. The days and... read more
Salvador brazil, Brazil - Sep 4 - Sep 8, 2018
This was the second trip we arranged through kimkim. This time we had very short notice. Rodrigo arranged a day tour for me alone in Salvador while my husband worked. I went to Praia do Forte beach + Tamar sea turtle project. He suggested going with a group tour since they are more interesting than being driven around alone.
He was right. Picked me up on time at the hotel. Great music and videos during the trip. The guide even spoke English (I was told not to expect this). They... read more
Lencois maranhenses trip, Brazil - Jul 14 - Jul 18, 2018
Marco was great helping us plan this trip. He did not miss any detail and was able to answer all the questions we had. Our guide Felipe from Nattrip was wonderful. He was with us from beginning to end of the trip. Since we do not speak Portuguese, he translated everything to us. Seems to enjoy what he does. The few times he didn't have the answer to one of the many questions we had he did not hesitate to find the answer.
Lençóis Maranhenses is an amazing place, we are so glad we were able... read more
