Proposal
 
 
 
This is the most classic of the Brazilian trekkings, crossing the Serra dos Orgãos National Park and covering 40 kilometers in the top of the mountains. The most notable aspects of this park are due to its increadible reliefs, represented by natural monuments of extreme beauty. These mountains are disclosed to the walkers since Petropolis, when is possible to see the 'Garrafão', the 'Escalavrado' and the 'Açu Castles' until Teresópolis where you will be able to visualize the 'Pedra do Sino' (Bell's Rock) and the 'Dedo de Deus' (God's Finger), symbol of the Brazilian mountainering. The predominant vegetation in the Park is the Atlantic Forest, where we can find rare species of trees and a great diversity of Brazilian fauna representatives, as 'quatis', 'pacas', monkeys and birds. Rivers and waterfalls go down the mountain covered by tropical bushes with excellent chances for a refreshing swim and privileged with the presence of a rich flora with orchids and bromeliads. At night, we are able to the enchanting activity of observing the stars.

Before coming back to Rio, you will spend two days visiting the colonial city of Teresópolis, relaxing in a charming and very comfortable Inn.
