Brazil: land of huge golden beaches, footballers and sea, and even more: wild nature, mountains, and pristine promontories. Rio de Janiero, the city that is the symbol of Brazilian festivity, hides in fact also a more barren side, wild but not for this less fascinating. The tour will take you to explore the valleys of the Tres Picos National Park, which overlooks the Teresòpolis district. You will walk through silent forests and rocky headlands, admire unique sunrises and sunsets and stay in local refuges. You will then descend to the peculiar valley of Nova Friburgo, before returning to Rio de Janeiro. Embark on a unique adventure and experience Brazil in an alternative way!
Arrival of participants at the Rio de Janeiro airport. Next transfer to Petrópolis to start the Serra dos Órgãos trek. The goal is the first peak known as Castelos do Açu, where the shelter for the night is located. Arrival at the top for the sunset and to admire a fantastic view. Given the long journey we recommend a packed lunch to the participants. Dinner and overnight.
Before starting our trekking day, our companions will wake you up early so you do not miss the magnificent sunrise from the top. This second day is certainly the most beautiful of the crossing. With steps up and down between ridges and valleys, you will arrive at Pedra do Sino. Arrival at the cabin in the evening.
Meals included: dinner
This is the last day of trekking. Wake up early for another sunrise, the best of the tour. After the show, the descent to the town of Teresópolis begins, hosting the training sessions of the Brazilian national football team. Visit to Granja Comary, the training center of the national team and lunch in the early afternoon with all-you-can-eat barbeque in the local restaurant, to recover the energy from trekking. Transfer to the hotel and rest in view of a new adventure.
After breakfast at the hotel, transfer by bus / shuttle to the city of Nova Friburgo, towards the valley known as Vale dos Frades, home to excellent springs. Here begins the short hike to the base camp, where you spend the night in a tent. Overnight in a unique setting among the rocks. Here are several options for excursions to the peaks, such as the paths to “La box di Fiammiferi” or “La testa di Drago”. Meals will be prepared by everyone using a rustic wood stove.
Meals included: breakfast, lunch, dinner
This day is dedicated to exploring the peaks of the Park. There are numerous paths and itineraries available in the Vale dos Deuses. In the evening there will be an outdoor party with a big fire, as well as typical food and drinks.

Last day of trekking. Before the greetings, there is time for another short excursion for those who still have energy. A meditation session or a nap in the hammock are alternatives for those who want to rest. After lunch, visit a local dairy and from here continue the descent towards the city.
