Serra dos Órgãos - Rio de Janeiro State




This 8 day tour through the gorgeous landscapes of Rio de Janeiro State is a great way to get a first taste of Brazil. Anyone looking for fun, sun, good rides, interesting culture, great food and a lot of mountain and coastal scenery will definitely find this an unforgettable adventure. You will travel through five different serras, national parks, Atlantic rainforest and the marvelous coastline of the state of Rio de Janeiro. We will pass through charming small rural villages, and visit a few historically important cities like Paraty, small colonial port town and world heritage site. and Petrópolis, built high in the (cooler) mountains by German settlers in honor of Brazil's second emperor. Until today it is the place where many Cariocas (citizens of Rio de Janeiro) go to escape the summer heat.




Surely, we can not see all of Rio de Janeiro state without seeing the metropolis itself. Rio de Janeiro "a cidade maravilhosa", will be the last city on our list. We will cruise along the famous beaches of Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon and take a closer look at the two most famous of the numerous attractions the city has to offer: Sugarloaf Mountain and the statue of Christ the Redeemer... With some luck, there might be time to visit the "City of Samba" (cidade do Samba), one of Rio's most recent touristic attractions, where the 14 best Samba schools prepare the year round for the yearly defile at the Sambódromo...After a saturday night in Rio, we go and visit Rocinha, South America's biggest favela. On the last day we complete our journey, Visiting the hanggliding ramp at São Conrado (Gávea) one more highlight of Rio, and on our way back to Volta Redonda, we take a last peek at the coastal Atlantic Rainforest, when we cross the Serra do Piloto.
