Sierra Trails

Considering the overall geography of the Amazon, the uplands in the Cristalino region are relatively high, ranging between 250 m and 450 m (820 – 1,480 ft) above sea level. And even a small variation in the terrain is enough to provoke radical differences in the types of vegetation and the species that live there.

Serra Trail. After a quick boat ride, this trail begins with a short walk within a forest containing tall trees, then moves on to sloping land that takes visitors to the top of the highlands. On the way up, you can see a significant change in the types of trees, as you leave the terra firma forest and enter the deciduous forest. The activity requires that visitors are familiar with the demands of sloping terrain.
Duration: 3 and a half to 4 and a half hours.
Difficulty level: Moderate.

Serra do Cacau Trail. Located near the Serra Trail, this trail runs through a beautiful transitional forest growing on the slopes of this range of hills. When you reach the top, you have a lovely view of the forest in the valley below. The activity requires that visitors are familiar with the demands of sloping terrain.
Duration: 4 to 5 hours.
Difficulty level: Moderate.

Serra Nova Trail. After a short boat ride, this trail begins with a walk through an area of large trees, including the Brazil nut, until you reach the feet of the hillside. From there, the land slopes sharply upward, taking visitors to one of the highest points in the region. The activity requires that visitors are familiar with the demands of sloping terrain and longer hikes.
Duration: 4 to 5 and a half hours.
Difficulty level: Moderate to Advanced.
