Vale Natural Reserve

Since the 1950s, Vale has maintained Vale Natural Reserve (RNV), one of the largest protected areas of Atlantic Forest in Brazil. Located in Linhares, in northern Espírito Santo, RNV covers around 23,000 hectares and is one of the last remaining expanses of Brazilian coastal lowland forest, one of the most endangered forest formations in the Atlantic Forest biome.

A Reserva Natural Vale

Open to the public, Vale Natural Reserve is a great location for ecotourism, because it is located in the “Circuito do Verde e das Águas” (Green and Water Circuit), one of the main tourism routes in Espírito Santo. The site has a hotel and large green area for leisure, with swimming pool, natural spa and sports court. In addition, the public can enjoy hiking trails, workshop rooms, playroom and a Visitor Centre with permanent exhibition on the Atlantic Forest and information on environmental education.

Besides conserving biological diversity and providing leisure options, the reserve is home to scientific research of importance to society and essential to knowledge and management of coastal lowland forest.
