Eco farm volunteering, social work for the community and eco sports

Eco Caminhos receives groups from around the world, offering customised programmes that allow groups to experience what a self-sustaining eco farm is all about, while exploring the region’s rich flora and fauna. Eco Caminhos is situated in the beautiful mountains of the Atlantic Forest on the outskirts of the national reserve “Três Picos” (Three Peaks), close to the city of Nova Friburgo. It is the perfect base from which to go on hikes with stunning views, visit waterfalls and natural pools, and participate in workshops on bioconstruction, organic farming and renewable energy, which we can organise on request. Eco Caminhos also organises “Caminhos in Action”, an initiative aimed at contributing to the local community. We have formed a partnership with an impoverished public school to set up an organic farm with the children, in order to stimulate a healthier diet and familiarise them with sustainable farming. We also refurbish the houses of people and organisations in need with natural materials. At Eco Caminhos we care about your safety. We organise airport transfers with trusted drivers and the community where we live in, Cardinot, is extremely safe. Groups can choose to stay at an all-inclusive luxury guest house with incredible facilities or go for the cheaper and more basic option of staying at a local farm. While we are committed to creating a complete and unforgettable eco experience for your group, you are welcome to organise your own events here as well. Please contact us to discuss the possibilities and how we can best facilitate your stay with us.
