Brazil // Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo //


Tiradentes is surrounded by hills, but as the trails aren’t marked you’re best off going with a guide if you want to explore them. Caminhos e Trilhas (Rua dos Inconfidêntes 207 t 32/3355-2477) lead small groups on fairly easy hikes, stopping at spots where there are natural pools and picnic areas and views of Tiradentes. Hikes last about four and a half hours and cost R$35 per person including a picnic. The same agency also arranges two- to three-hour horse-riding trips (R$35–45) and rents out mountain bikes.
