We enjoyed (very much!) our 2 nights stay with our 3 year old son. We felt warmly welcomed, and taken care of with thoughtful organization. We walked all five trails leading from the lodge with our son, and appreciated this beautiful piece of rainforest that Rainer and Bettina are taking care of. We also enjoyed watching the birds from the terrace, taking our meals and wine (we were asked about our food restrictions beforehand), and bathing under the small waterfall. We appreciated the summer weather, kinder than in Rio thanks to the 1200 meters altitude. Thank you again, Rainer and Bettina, for this beautiful place and very pleasant time.

We were part of a small birding group that recently stayed at the rustic, yet comfortable Ecolodge Itororo near Nova Friburgo. The lodge is owned and operated by the brother-sister team Rainier & Bettina. Both are very personable and welcoming. Rainier is especially dedicated to the land and explained how he continues to eliminate invasive trees on the property, replacing them with natives. His efforts have paid off - the bird life on the lodge grounds is wonderful, with the well-stocked bird feeders an added treat, especially for photographers! During our visit we also had several day-long excursions to nearby areas, so lots of opportunity for Atlantic Rainforest endemics. Although it was summer, the area was experiencing an extended cold front and we were very happy to have a heavy blanket for sleeping and warm shower every day. Our meals were home cooked, good to very good, with an emphasis on vegetables. Our packed lunches however, needed more variety! The honor bar for drinks (wine, beer, and others) worked well and the WiFi did too although it did slow a bit in the evening during high usage. We enjoyed our time at Ecolodge Itororo and hope to get back at some point for another visit.

Dear Liz, Thank you so much for your feedback! This is very important to us, we are always very greatfull for feedbacks and suggestions on how to improve our Ecolodge and Services. Our packed lunch will certainly be improved in the near future, we are working on its menu at the moment. On our Environmental Project we should have some more of the Atlantic Rainforest recuperated this year. We hope to see you here at our Ecolodge in the future. Best Regards from the Atlantic Rainforest. Rainer

It is one of those places you must stay. Good location and staff fantastic. Food was great every meal, made you want to have 2nds. Birdwatching was very good and the entire experience was fantastic. The owners have been taking the introduced trees out and are making more forest with the natural ones.

We (2 couples) spent 2 weeks at the lodge and booked 5 days birding outside the lodge end of November , beginning of December . The lodge work in cooperation with Serra dos Tucanos Birding which is excellent for both of them. The hosts Rainer Dungs and his sister Bettina are outstanding people and very dedicated. They make you feel as special guests all the time. The food was excellent, fresh, tasty and plentiful. I have food allergies and Bettina always made sure I had my own meal when necessary. She is a great cook and makes wonderful cake in the afternoon. The rooms are clean, confortable and well maintained. WiFi worked fine most of the time. Bird feeders on the veranda are great for photographies especially tanagers, parakeets and hummingbirds. Feeders are always full of fruits. Trails are well marked, maintained and fairly easy to walk. For our 5 days outside the lodge we had a local guide, Cirilo Vieira, who was knowledgeable and very pleasant to be with. Overall we saw around 240 species of birds. The lodge also arranged our transportation from the airport (2.5 hours from Rio) which worked perfectly. The driver Serghino was excellent. The lodge is peaceful, great for birding and walking in the mountains. We highly recommend Itororo Lodge and Serra dos Tucanos. Thank you again to our great hosts Rainer and Bettina who made our stay memorable.
