Horseback Riding During Full Moon
Horseback riding is a great way to experience a well-preserved region of the island, the Rio Vermelho neighborhood. During full moon nights, the experience is even more special, when it is possible to contemplate the island’s natural beauties under the moonlight. The ride is also a history and geography class of the region.
During the two-hour tour on the nights of the full moon, the group passes through the Rio Vermelho State Park, which covers a conserved area of native vegetation and Praia do Moçambique. With more than a thousand hectares of area, the Park maintains the balance of the region’s water complex, and provides actions to recover ecosystems through scientific research. The route includes a passage through the Moçambique forest, the beach and Canto das Aranhas.
The activity has no age restriction and can be experienced by the whole family since the animals are docile and easy to ride. Do not forget that the best outfit for the ride is jeans and closed shoe. Also, remember to bring sunscreen and a hat.
