  • Highest peak of Nova Friburgo, where are located the communication towers of Petrobras, where are the Campos Basin to Brasilia, without interruptions. The path it is possible to be done by car down to a certain extent, necessary after that, well the first trial and exhausting climb. By car or motorcycle you can get pulled up to the House of Petrobras, where you must identify and get higher 640 steps until you reach the highest point, where are located the towers. The visual is rewarding. It's worth it! The descent is also tiring. Take water and light foods.

  • I climbed in the afternoon, around 15 hours, the petrobras was already closed and pass underneath the grid. Are a lot of steps, but the view is indescribable. The peace and calm that comes up is thriving even to understand. On the way back the car jammed in the "sidewalk" of clay and it was very hard to take. Take coats because it is too cold!

  • Tired, but it's worth it! A beautiful view upon arriving at the end, it takes a lot of mood, time, or having good fitness.

  • Amazing.
  • Pico da Caledonia is amazing, worth the climb. If you are performing the walk is good to have a certain fitness (I walk), if drive will be able to reach around ending walk. Bring water and food, but bring the trash with you, never leave in nature.

  • One of the most fantastic places of Nova Friburgo, in my opinion. Insider's view of various places in the region. Recommend the rise of motorcycle, 4 x 4, cars or on foot, because the final part of the road is in bad condition. Climbing on foot from the beginning on, takes about 3 hours Cascatinha on average. I'm sure the effort is rewarded. Up in the night to see the Sunrise is fantastic, but requires extra careful, and only recommend for those who know the place. Remembering to take RG to leave in the lobby.

  • An amazing location for nature lovers. The first part of the climb can be done on foot or by car (it has to be available and who is by car, the road, albeit with pavement, is very precarious. Already the end of the course, it has to be done on foot, but is very worthwhile. The view is sensational and the contact with nature as well.

Where to stay in Nova Friburgo

As a popular tourist hotspot, Nova Friburgo boasts a wide range of boutique, midsize hotels in the city center, mainly clustered within a few blocks of the Bengalas River. These accommodations, just a short walk from the city's main streets, tend to be somewhat upscale, with onsite pools and gardens. Many feature architectural styles reminiscent of Swiss and German mountain chalets. In the hills south of the city, past Point de Saudade, you'll find more nature-oriented options and eco-lodges, which focus on comfort combined with a somewhat rustic feel. Plenty of "pousadas" also dot the area: traditional Brazilian guesthouses offering lower prices in exchange for fewer amenities.
