Destinations   Teresópolis

Framed by mountain scenery, Teresópolis is well positioned for excursions into the lush-capped peaks of the Serra dos Órgãos National Park. Trekking, climbing and rafting are the best ways to experience the park's trails, rivers and waterfalls. Some 96km north of Rio, Teresópolis itself is modern, prosperous and dull.

Some miles from Petrópolis, the town of Teresópolis also delights in an agreeable climate at 900 meters above sea level. In the distance are the bay of Guanabara and the spectacular surroundings of this town.

The beauty of the park resides in the strange shapes of these granite formations.
