Description

Standing at the heart of the state of Rio de Janeiro is the stunning Serra dos Órgãos mountain range.

The breathtaking rock formations resemble giant organ tubes that are used in churches, caused by heavy erosion. Hence the name being translated as the Organ Range.

These dramatic natural features are all protected within the Serra dos Órgãos National Park, the third of its kind in Brazil that was created in 1939.

The nearest city is Teresópolis, the springboard into the wild landscapes. We begin our trek here after being transferred from Rio de Janeiro.

Our prized target is the highest point of the mountain range, Pedra do Sino, which measures 2,275 meters above sea level.

Exploring the trails that cut through lush vegetation of the Atlantic Forest and striking rock formations.

The climate is tropical and humid which cultivates a rich collection of vegetation. Within the 26,000-acre park there are more than 2,800 plant species.

In the early morning of day two, we will witness one of the most spectacular sunrises available on Earth.

Itinerary

Day 1: Rio de Janeiro City – Teresópolis Headquarters – Shelter 4  

After a hotel pick-up in Rio de Janeiro, we make our way to Teresópolis, the gateway to the Serra dos Órgãos National Park. We will walk by the lower part of the park until entering the trail. During the ascent we cross two waterfalls where the highlight is the Veil of the Bride of Teresópolis. Upon arriving at Shelter 4 we will set up our camping for overnight. We can go to Pedra do Sino Peak to enjoy a great sunset or rest. Hiking distance: 14km.

We will wake up early for a nocturnal stroll to the summit of Pedra do Sino to enjoy the beautiful sunrise with views of Rio de Janeiro, Guanabara Bay and Tijuca Forest. The morning will be free to enjoy the camping and explore the surrounding area. Pico do Papudo, for example, is a good alternative option. Then, we will leave camp and return to Teresópolis. Hiking distance: 13 km.


About the guide

guide profile img

The year 2010 marked the beginning of a journey of creation of Nattrip, our company. Accessibility to ecotourism and adventure tourism was restricted, especially in Rio de Janeiro. There were still severe restrictions of public use to the existing Conservation Units, which went some way against what the world was experiencing. While other countries created policies to increase protected area visitation in an attempt to increase preservation, using the “understand to protect” approach, Brazil believed that prohibiting access was the best way to protect.

Thanks to the work of some conservation, tourism and sports entities, as well as some spheres of public power, this premise has gradually changed, giving space to a greater offer of experiences in the natural environment.
We understand that people, whether tourists or residents, needed tours and specialized services to practice the activities that these places provide. This is to promote a healthy life and generate environmental knowledge by insertion into the environment, creating a basis for environmental sustainability, responsibility, mutual conviviality, and protection.

That’s when we decided to create a company specialized in the eco-adventure segment, which could promote the sector with responsibility. A way of entertainment that creates environmental education by osmosis. However, the mission of Nattrip was beyond just being a company that provides nature and adventure tours.

We design the company’s performance in all aspects of tourism in Brazil, aiming to be a company of national reference, which can translate into quality assurance. Today Nattrip is one of the main agencies and operators of receptive tourism in Rio de Janeiro, a respected adventure operator in Brazil and has been showing all its power in the corporate, educational and travel segments.

“Protect by enjoying and understanding, never forbidding!”
