Join us on a brilliant adventure as we hike up to the summit of the majestic Pedra da Gávea mountain. At almost 3000 feet high above Rio, you will feel like you on top of the world!

Pedra da Gavea Hike

We'll pick you up from your hotel in Rio de Janeiro at 7:30 am, before taking a 30-minute ride to Tijuca National Park.

Once there, we will begin a brilliant two-and-a-half-hour trek to the top of Pedra da Gávea. Along the way, we will encounter Brazil's most representative fauna and vegetation.

As the last stage of the hike involves a rock climbing ascent of an 80-foot cliff face. It is not necessary to have previous climbing experience, as an instructor will help you through every step. Once at the top, you will be rewarded with wonderful picture-postcard views.

After we will abseil back down the summit of Pedra da Gávea before starting the trek back to the original starting point. Along the way, we will pass a beautiful waterfall, the ideal place to rest and have something to eat (not included).

When we finish the tour, we will return to the starting point of Rio at 4 pm.
