Something very special

 

Extension 5 days/4 nights

Whale watching on horseback, superb beach riding, fishing with dolphins and a dip into Brazilian history

 

The Club "Les Plus Belles Baies du Monde" (www.world-bays.com) included Praia do Rosa beach in is list of the 28 chosen beaches, because of its natural beauty, conservation awareness and the APA, Environment Protected Area, of the Southern Right Whales.

 

As a perfect match with our trail riding in the high sierras of the Brazilian South, we offer now a pleasantly contrasting extension program at the Praia do Rosa beach, on the coast of Santa Catarina. The riders from our Pantanal Wildlife Trail will be equally amazed at this extension, when they can watch the giants of the ocean at hand touch distance, after all the wildlife they met in the plains of the Pantanal.

 

This package consist of an unusual combination of 5 days of activities including watching Southern Right Whales (Franca), while bringing up their off-spring in the protected waters of the Santa Catarina coastline. The Praia do Rosa and Imbituba beaches are among the finest in Brazil and offer pleasant beach riding. A side trip to the historic village of Laguna is also included. Among other historic events in the earlier times of the colonization, the Italian freedom fighter Guiseppe Garibaldi, married to Anita Garibaldi, lived and fought here. The house where they lived together is open for visitation. Laguna also features one of the rarest spectacles on earth: The mullet fishing with the "assistance" of dolphins.

There are good restaurants and bars in the Rosa, specially during the season, but also the food of your Hotel is very recommendable. The terrace offers a splendid view over the beach and the sea.

 

Note: unfortunately we have not been able to maintain our own horse operation at Rosa Beach. Our clients will therefore ride on horses owned by the Hotel.
