Awesome, there's a night trek that leaves at 2 in the morning from the village, with flash lights , to see the sunrise from the top of the Pico do Papagaio. The company is called Sunrise Pioneers, definitely worth it !

Martin was a great guide and this was one of the highlights of our Brazil trip. Hiking through the jungle in the dark, listening to the sounds of the night, and ending the trip with a beautiful sunrise was quite an experience. Don't let the 2am departure time scare you! Martin was a great guide and is passionate about these... More

Great trek. I went solo with no guide. Left at 8am and passed the sunrise crew as they were heading down (great guides and friendly!). You can do this alone no problem during daylight. I have a lot of respect for the sunrise crew getting people up there in the dark!! Wear good shoes Bring 1l water per person Sign... More

Hiked Pico do Papagaio with sunrise pioneers, I was unsure due to a 2am start time but it was more than worth it. I've not done much hiking in my time but this wasn't too challenging, as long as you're in a fit state you won't have any issues. We didn't have perfect views of the sunrise, but that didn't...

Saw the comments on trip advisor, tried it, and LOVED the experience ! Asked for Martin, nice guy really. He explains things well (difficulty, how far you are, advice, weather forecast, walking bamboo sticks, safety). We weren't expecting clear weather and arrived on a sudden breach in the clouds, mind blowing! Not an "easy" hike, but we were not regular... More

I'm not a morning person but I'm so glad I got up early for this hike to the top with Martin of Sunrise Pioneers! Beautiful scenery, great people and a view like no other that lives on in my heart... Highly recommended!

A great experience that really delivers on the effort of getting up early and climbing up a hill. I would encourage everyone to do it.

We hiked up to Parrot Peak, setting off at 08:30. On the way up we met a party coming down who had watched the sunrise - it must have been beautiful as the sun rises over the sea to the East and the peak offers a perfect view. On a cloudless day the views are stunning of the island and... More
