Nova Friburgo

Getting there & around

Nova Friburgo is a short jaunt from Rio, via Niterói, on bus line 1001. The ride is along a picturesque, winding, misty jungle road.

Novo Friburgo has two long-distance bus stations. The north bus station (Rodoviária Norte; 2522 6095; Praça Feliciano Costa), 2.5km north of the center, has buses to Petrópolis and Teresópolis (R$8, two hours, five daily). The south bus station (Rodoviária Sul; 2522 0400; Ponte da Saudade), 4km south of the center, has frequent buses to Rio (R$22, two hours). You’ll need to catch a local bus to the central, local bus station just north of Praça Getúlio Vargas. Local buses go to just about all the tourist ­attractions. Ask for details at the tourist office.
