This stunning 100km trekking challenge is on a mixture of jeep tracks, narrow jungle trails and on the principal path through the park, which is known as the Trilha do Oura, or the Gold Trail which was originally built by slaves to transport gold to the coast. The area is one of a real wilderness with spectacular biodiversity, rocky outcrop mountains with hidden waterfalls and rainforest pools. Our challenge finishes at the famous carnival city of Rio de Janeiro for a celebration party not to be forgotten!
