"Known as the most beautiful Trekking in Brazil is the route of 03 days of Trekking in the Serra dos Órgãos Moutain Rage at Teresópolis city (known as the capital of the Brazilian mountaineering) the route' Travessia Petrópolis x Teresópolis'.

It is a mindblowing trekking expedition, with a higher technical level by having small rock climbing ways, at the same time has the facility of small mountain shelters on its way to host the traveler.

Serra dos Órgãos is one of the most beautiful places on the planet and still little known by the adventurous public outside of Brazil. Every time I walk in its paths it's as if I am passing through this beautiful and unique place of Brazil for the first time."
