Serra dos Orgaos National Park, Teresopolis
(4.6/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We couldn't do it was raining much pq track. From the viewpoint of the Finger of God, and not much more than this. The little q saw it totally holds.

  • The lower part (Guapimirim) follows the Superb River, with several wells and waterfalls, but two camping areas. High (Teresópolis) has hiking trails, campground, Inn and is the gateway to the trail of Pedra do Sino. For mountaineering, the input must be scheduled through the internet.
