As well as hiking, climbing and mountain biking, the Serrana region of Rio de Janeiro is perfect for exploring on horseback. There are many horse farms offering treks through the Serra dos Orgaos National Park with a local guide where schlumbergera species of cactus grow wild.

Places to Visit Around the Serrana region of Rio de Janeiro

The small community of Possession is within the district of Petropolis and has around 8,000 inhabitants. It is a very scenic region north of the Organ Mountains and is well worth driving to from your holiday rental in the Serrana region of Rio de Janeiro. The scenic roads, mountain landscape and gushing waterfalls are beautiful to discover. The area is mainly agricultural with herb farms, trout lakes, snail breeders, mushroom production and organic farming. Teresopolis is famous for its jagged mountain peaks which attract climbers and hikers from all over the world. The most famous of these peaks is the Dedo de Deus, or “finger of God” although the highest is the Pedra do Sino (Bell Rock) at 2,263 metres. Teresopolis is also well known for its football school and matches.
