What you'll do

We will walk towards the upper (parte alta) Serra dos Orgaos National Park - entering part of the majestic Serra dos Órgãos. We will pass through waterfalls and I will tell you a bit about the park. We'll possibly see beautiful mountains and reach a 360° view summit that has a very special view of Serra dos Órgãos mountain range, including part of the famous God's Finger and Devil's Needle Mountains (the views are subject to the fog). This is a MODERATE hike of 14km (round trip) with a constant ascent (840m of altimetry) that takes around 3 to 4 hours, including stops for resting, hydration, replace our energies and enjoy beautiful views. The return might take 3 hours. The ticket to the National Park needs to be bought in advance directly at the Parnaso website (R$ 59 foreigners). It is advisable to wear long trousers and tennis shoes for trekking and that you have a reasonable/good physical condition. We will walk outdoors all the time, so we may be subject to the weather conditions and the landscapes may be affected by these factors out of our control. I take small groups, usually up to 6 participants, looking to deliver a safe and quality experience, as well as being a great way to make friends! :)
