The Açu Shelter is located at 2,150 meters of altitude, after a 7 kilometers walk with walls constructed with certified wood, solar energy and sewage biological treatment. Besides being green, it has hot shower and a kitchen, a great place for leisure and rest for all visitors. The new shelter has capacity for 30 visitors (12 bunk beds and 18 bivouacs) on one of the most traditional and beautiful trails in Brazil, crossing Petrópolis and Teresópolis.
Next to the shelter there is a camping area with capacity for 70 people. Visitors can bring their own tent or rent one if desired. In this case, our team mounts and dismounts the rented tent. This way we can offer a complete service with total comfort to the visitors.
