Getting There & Away

Cidade do Aço operates buses from Rio de Janeiro to Itatiaia's bus station (R$45, 2¾ to 3¼ hours, two to three daily). From here, Viação Penedo (024 3381-8861) runs four daily buses (R$2) to the national park visitors center, leaving Itatiaia's Igreja Matriz church at 7am, noon, 3pm and 6pm, returning from the park at 8am, 1pm, 5pm and 7pm. An additional bus, leaving at 10:20am, climbs from Itatiaia village to the park's lower entrance but does not continue to park headquarters.
