Know More about this tour

Day 1: Rio de Janeiro City (hotel Pick-up) x Petrpolis Headquarters x Au Castles Camp (08km)

After pick-up at Rio de Janeiro to Petrpolis the Imperial City, we will start our Trekking at Serra dos rgos Mountains.  

The first day of Petrpolis Terespolis crossing is the most demanding. During the 7 km up to Castelos do Au mountain shelter we gain approximately 1100 meters of altitude. The trail to Au mountain goes through a dense forest and with a strong ascent to Pedra do Queijo viewpoint. Then the trail gets a little less steep until arriving at Ajax viewpoint, which has natural water supply. After Ajax, we need to face the section considered the most difficult of the ascent to the Au castles: the Isabeloca mountain. This ascent is named after an alleged passage of Princess Isabel on the spot. The view from the top of Au castles closes the first day with a golden key. From there it is possible to see all Rio de Janeiro and Guanabara Bay in addition to the entire mountain range of Serra dos rgos an Tijucas Forest.

Hiking distance: 08km
Overnight mode: Camping 

Day 2: Au Castles Camp x Pedra do Sino Camp (10km)

The second day is undoubtedly the most beautiful of Petrpolis Terespolis crossing. The entire course goes on an average altitude of 2,000m. After leaving the Au castles, well cross a valley and then climb to the top of Morro do Marco. After descending this hill, we arrive in Luva valley and then ascend to the summit of Morro da Luva. The trail follows another section of rock summits, where navigation is complicated until reaching the section called The 'Elevator'.

The Elevator is a ladder made of steel rebar stuck to a steep stone that gives access to the summit of Morro do Dinossauro. Once at the top of Morro do Dinossauro, we find the first great view of the Pedra do Garrafo and Pedra do Sino stones. From there we start the descent to Vale das Antas and the trail continues to the summit of Morro da Baleia, where you can see the rock wall of Pedra do Sino, Garrafo and the trail channel where The 'Cavalinho' passage is located.
