The vast majority of trails we offer are part of the Tijuca National Park, a large green area that is meant for a good part of town. On this tour, we go to the ” heart ” of the Tijuca Forest, the main point of the largest urban forest in the world.
We started the first part in the car, on a beautiful breathtaking journey. Within seconds, the urban buildings will give place to the extensive green, cut only by road and some pretty lookouts. In the forest, we visit a very interesting place, with explanations in English and Portuguese of all biodiversity of the area.
After understand better about where we are, we make a 30 minutes trail to the highest place of the city, the Pico da Tijuca. On the top, we find a beautiful 360 degree view of Rio de Janeiro.
