Voo do Gavião Zipline
Come experience one of the most beautiful adventures of the Chapada dos Veadeiros, the Voo do Gaviao (Hawk’s Flight). Created and implemented by Travessia Ecoturismo under the Brazilian Standards for Adventure Tourism.
With over 850m of length and at 100m of height it is an incredible flight over the Cerrado, facing the limits of the National Park. It has got this name due to the high number of Carcara Hawks in the area.
Located inside the Sao Bento Farm at about 8km from Alto Paraiso, the challenge consists in zipping down two parallel steel cables stretched between Serra Almecegas, at an altitude of 1265m and the Farm’s Lookout, at about 1210m, making it a 55m level drop at a maximum speed of 55km per hour.
The activity is monitored by experienced Travessia Team Conductors, following all protocols defined by ABNT NBR ISO 21101 Standards – SGS-Sistema de Gestao de Seguranca (Safety Management System). Periodic training, equipment maintenance and inspection, quality control and continuous improvement processes.
Participants have the privilege to contemplate an incredible 360º view of the mountain ranges and main hills of the region and the National Park’s limits.
It’s a passive activity where no previous experience and specific fitness training is needed. It’s safe for anyone as you sit on your ‘chair’, grab the zips, and slide down the cables contemplating the unforgettable Chapada dos Veadeiros.
