4.6/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web
Parque Nacional do Itatiaia is a perfect slice of Mata Atlântica, the dense Atlantic rainforest that graces the eastern coast of Brazil. As you leave the roar of the traffic behind and immerse yourself in the sounds of rushing water, birdsong, and the wind in the trees, you will feel like you are entering another world. Adopted as a World Biosphere Reserve, Brazil’s oldest national park is home to more than 400 species of native wildlife including both endangered and endemic species like the woolly spider monkey and lion tamarins. You can take a guided tour through the jungle, and see the serenely beautiful Lago Azul and the spectacular waterfalls Véu de Noiva and Itaporani, just three from a long list of natural phenomena you can explore. Back at the visitors’ center, there is an interesting national history museum. Itatiaia means "many-pointed rock" in the Tupí language, and, home to the jagged Agulhas Negras, one of Brazil’s tallest mountains, is a fitting name for the park. Our Itatiaia vacation planner makes visiting Parque Nacional do Itatiaia and other Itatiaia attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • The lower part of the Itatiaia National Park is an excellent place for walking in the open air and direct contact with nature, where you can observe various species of birds, many monkeys and butterflies. On rainy days do not recommend.

  • There is an entry in Itamonte (opposite the Hotel Gotthard) Uptown Itatiaia National Park, little known, that takes the visitor to the shelter Rebouças, mountaineers point. The first kilometers can be made in any type of vehicle, already late, it is advisable to 4 x 4, because the road is rocks and difficult to access, but is very worthwhile. The look is beautiful, with unusual formation rocks.
