Mountain Bike Tours / Brazil – During colonial Brazil, so - called quilombos were places to where the African slaves escaped in order to hide from the Portuguese. Most of the time, these were remote places, in the mountains and valleys, with difficult access by dense raiforest trails.

Therefore, in many Brazilian maps still appears the name quilombo (e.g. serra / vale do quilombo). With the time, these hiding - places became little communities, the so - called quilombolas.

Nowadays, quilombolas can be found all over the Atlantic Rainforest region and are gradually being recognized by the Brazilian goverment. Some of them are part of oureco tours – Rainforest Tours / Brazil.
