What you'll do

The trail starts at the morning in the National Park of Serra dos Órgãos headquarters, in Petrópolis. The walk to Açu Castles is full of beautiful viewpoints that reward the effort. The cake’s cherry is the end of stretch, where we get to Açu Castles, giant rock blocks on the top of Morro do Açu, almost 2200 meters high. On the shelter surround we have a panoramic view of Serra dos Órgãs and of Rio de Janeiro city, besides contemplate the main attractions of the park, we can even see the most beautiful touristic points from Rio de Janeiro, like Pedra da Gávea, Morro dois Irmãos, Pão de Açúcar, Corcovado and more. All that with a sunset, a breathtaking sunrise and a beautiful starry night. An unique and unforgettable experience.

I'm a geologist graduated at Federal University of Rio de Janeiro - UFRJ and tourism guide specialized in natural attractions, formed by CIETH. Even before my graduation I've always been passionate by trails and for being in contact with the nature. Due this passion and for having interesting and unknown informations about the natural attractions of Rio de Janeiro, I decided to share my knowledge with other people who are interested by the nature beauty. Among rocks and breathtaking walking, I introduce a bit of the geological history of the visited places, joining knowledge and fun.
