What will we be doing?
We start off in the town of Nova Friburgo where we will pick you up. At the farm, we will start off with a nice coffee or tea at our naturally build house. While you enjoy your drink we will give you a presentation about how we implement permaculture at Eco Caminhos. We then walk around the farm and visit the different bioconstruction and agroforestry projects. Between 12:00 – 13:00 hours you will be served a delicious meal with ingredients from our own organic garden. After lunch, we will do a hike in the mountains. You can choose between an easy hike which takes approximately 2 hours or more advanced hike that takes approximately 3,5 hours. There will be served a small snack on the mountain peak. At the end of the day, we drop you off in the town of Nova Friburgo or at the bus station.

You choose the hike
When you contact us we will discuss the different hiking options. For the 2-3 day program we have 4 possible hikes and wild camp options:
Peak: Piramide – height: 1486 m – distance: 2,5 km – time: 1,5 – 2 hours – category: average
If you are not used to hikes in the mountains we can recommend you the “pirmade hike” which is a short but steep hike (1 – 1,5 hours)
Peak: Chapeu de Bruxa – height: 1450 m – distance: 6 km – time: 2 – 3 hours – category: advanced
A bit further than the Piramide peak is the chapeu the bruxa. It is a beautiful hike. It does have a small area with a chain to climb the final part of the peak. We usually take rope for safety.
