Trip Info

Itatiaia is only 2 hours driving south of Rio and is the oldest Brazilian national park, created in 1938. The park has the ascends higher than any other road in the country (over 2.400 meters), where the cloudy forest and the altitude fields hide several endemics and some rarities. The park is one of the 11 IBAs (important birds area) in the state of Rio de Janeiro.

Itatiaia spinetail, black-capped piprities, black-and-gold cotinga, serra-do-mar tyrannulets, large-tailed antshrikes and many others make this bird watching trip delightful.

This 3 day/ 2 night trip has great accommodation and superb food. Hotels are inside the park and have amazing birds feeders.

Your adventure awaits!
