2D/1N: Hiking the Petrópolis-Teresópolis Crossing


The route from Petrópolis to Teresópolis is one of the main treks in Brazil, 35 km long, and can be completed in three days walk. We will be walking in altitudes between 1500 and 2000 meters, crossing the Serra dos Órgãos National Park. From west to east, passing by beautiful sights such as the Chapadão, castelo do Iguaçu, the Antas Valley and the Pedra do Sino, the summit of the Orgãos range, 2263 meters high on our way, we´ll find natural shelters to overnight, and places to enjoy the great views of the whole range and from where we can see the Três Picos of Friburgo, the Guanabara Bay and If the sky is clean, the wonderful city of Rio de Janeiro. The best time to go is during the dry season (July-September).
