The Journey to High Paradise

The journey of Fly-High takes place in and around the beautiful town of Alto Paraíso (High Paradise). Alto Paraíso, a far-out wonderland in the middle of the Brazilian savannah, is a veritable mecca for spiritual seekers and eco-tourism, as well as being Brazil’s newest undiscovered hot spot. The area is also one of the world’s most biologically rich ecosystems.

During your vacation with Fly-High, you will be able to experience the best of the best from what this high paradise has to offer:

Water & Air

One of the main draws of this place is the spectacular diversity of its natural environment including exotic wildlife, clean and fresh air and several of the best and most beautiful waterfalls in Brazil. Here you can find some of the last 3% clean sweet water in the planet.

During our journey, we will visit some of the best waterfalls Alto can offer, many of them flowing into river pools that are warm enough to swim in and clean enough to drink from.

Eco-tourism & Adventure

The magical landscapes of Alto Paraíso are of the kind that makes you want to move, explore, and adventure yourself. Whether it is a hike in the national park, horseback riding on the “cerrado” or a few more extreme activities, Eco-tourism is definitely the way to go around here.

In this journey with Fly-High, you will get to participate in active adventures such as:
Canopying – Hiking a 40-feet high adventure trail between the treetops.
Zip-lining 350 feet above the ground over 3000 feet between mountaintops.
Rappelling 150 feet down through the waterfall.
And many more.

Spirituality, Energy and Healing

Alto Paraíso is also known around the world as the spiritual capital of the third millennium. What makes it such a unique place is the variety of cultures and spiritual paths coexisting in one small town. Among them are healers, shamans, therapists, churches, SPAs, communities, etc… All of this is empowered by the biggest crystal bed spread under the surface.

With Fly-High, you will have the opportunity to meet some of the best healers and therapists around and enjoy different kinds of rejuvenating healing processes.


Another great treat Alto Paraíso has to offer is its unique culinary experience. Here, locally grown organic food is really easy to find as its part of most people’s common daily life ideology. This creates a vast variety of vegetarian, vegan and organic gastronomic experiences including “super foods” such as Açaí, Jaca fruit, Baru nuts and many others.

During your stay, you will get to visit a local organic chocolate factory, a local honey maker, enjoy Açai bowls and many other nourishing and tasty experiences.

The Crystal Land

The region’s geology also comes with the requisite mystical component: Just beneath the soil is the world’s largest crystal bed, allegedly so luminous that it’s visible from outer space. It is believed that the huge geological layer of quartz crystal underground acts as a magnifying glass that can accelerate any healing or transformation process.

Together we will get to visit the best crystal shops around as well as experiencing their energy in different ways.

Nature & Wildlife

Another element Alto Paraíso has to share with us is its exuberant natural environment and wildlife. Where else in the world can you find Araras, Toucans and parrots flying over your head several times a day? The hummingbirds remind us the sweetness in life and if you get lucky, you will share a mango with a “Mico”, the miniature monkeys. Here you will understand how colorful life can be.

With its spectacular view across the wildly beautiful and unspoiled surroundings with hundreds of waterfalls, the cleanest air and the purest water on the planet, Alto Paraíso could be Brazil’s best-kept secret.

It’s hard not to stay in awe to the beauty of life when you sit next to the crystal clear water of a 40-foot waterfall that you have all for yourself while you’re eating a perfectly ripe mango that you’ve just found next to the stream as a wild toucan watches you from the tree’s branch.
