We will meet in the neighborhood of Tijuca, next to the subway station Uruguay. From there, we will take my car to the beginning of the trail of the Almas waterfall, where we will walk for about 20 minutes to this small but beautiful waterfall. Then we will walk to another waterfall, the waterfall Diamantina, and on the way we will visit beautiful caves. After this tour, we will return to the car and we will go to Pedra Bonita, where we will make a trail of about 30 minutes until we reach its summit, with a breathtaking look, to end our tour in style! P.S.: The Pedra Bonita hike occurs during week days (monday to friday), on weekends and holidays the hike is to the top of Tijuca's Peak (the highest mountain of Tijuca Forest and the second highest in the city of Rio).
Born in the city of Rio de Janeiro, I am passionate about trips and outdoor activities. I have been a climber for more than a decade and became a climbing guide certified by AGUIPERJ (Rio's climbing guide association). I have sport as a way of life, and I love to give this experience to all who are willing to experience it.
We will visit the Tijuca Forest National Park, an area of environmental protection where the flora and fauna of the Atlantic Forest is preserved. A place of exuberant nature, and that makes you forget you are inside one of the largest metropolises in the world!
This activity depends on good climatic conditions, and may have it's date changed if it rains. It is important to be able to undertake easy to moderate walking.
