Campos de Altitude

Brazil Tours / Ecosystems – Campos de altitude (altitude fields) is an ecosystem of the Atlantic Rainforest / (Mata Atlântica), which connects, above about 2.000 m, to the high montane altitudinal zone of the tropical and seasonal rainforests.

The predominant elements of this mountainous grass and shrubland are herbaceous and brushy species such as poaceae, syperaceae, asteraceae and mimosaceae. The lower brushy species frequently occur in the middle of a dense gramminoid carpet. The disjoined character and the geographical isolation of this ecosystem are relevant factors for the occurrence of biodiversity and endemism – Brazil Travel / Ecotourism.

We conduct guided hiking / trekking & mountain bike tours through the campos de altitude ecosystem in the following conservation units:

    • National Parks: Itatiaia, Serra da Bocaina and Serra dos Órgãos
    • State Parks: Serra do Mar Cantareira, Campos do Jordão and Pico do Marumbi.
