National Park
Serra dos Orgaos National Park is one of the foremost centers of trekking, mountain climbing and rock climbing in Brazil. Whether you are a novice walker or a seasoned adventurer, the park has something to offer, with extensive trails throughout the region that can take anywhere from a few hours to several days. The park covers a 110 sq km (42 sq mi) area of forested mountains rising from 145 m (476 ft) at its lowest point to 2,263 m (7,425 ft) at its highest. The area is abundant in natural springs and the unusual name--"Organ Mountains"--is believed to have come from early Portuguese settlers who thought that the rocky peaks of the mountain range resembled church organs. The most famous of these formations is the Dedo de Deus (God's Finger) rock, which resembles a left hand pointing towards the sky. It is 1,692 m (5,551 ft) high and can be seen in the background of the flag of the Rio de Janeiro state. A visit to Serra dos Orgaos National Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Teresopolis trip builder to plot your vacation.

  • Is for those who like nature and natural beauty. Admission is R$ 17.00 per person. If drive are charged R$ 15.00 per car in addition to the R$ 17.00 per person. Worth a drive. Within the park there is a lot to see and do. If you take snack you can spend all day there. Take bathing suit as there are natural swimming pool and waterfalls on the trails. If get track is good to take water and assess the size of the track and the level of difficulty. Has for all tastes. The landscape is beautiful. The Park is very well structured, but does not provide a map for visitors.
