The traverse between Petropolis and Teresopolis is one of the most famous hikes to do if you are staying in Rio de Janeiro. The hike traverses the Serra dos Órgãos National Park and some of the most epic views of the Serra dos Órgãos mountain range in Serra do Mar. The sheer mountain faces rise up all around you and you are surrounded by expansive views of the lush forest. You will also see one of the most famous mountains in Brazil: Dedo de Deus. The name translates to God’s finger, since it looks like a hang with one finger pointing upwards. You will need a guide and some gear and experience for this challenging, three (plus) day hike.
