    Conquer one of the most famous mountains in Brazil during the Gávea Rock Hiking Tour: An Adventurous Rio Trip!

    With your Gávea Rock Hiking Tour: An Adventurous Rio Trip tickets, you’ll climb one of the most enigmatic mountains in Brazil! Enjoy convenient hotel pick-up before starting your 2.5-hour climb to the top. Navigate through the densely forested Tijuca National Park and try to spot playful monkeys, colorful toucans, and other exotic wildlife. If you want to get a little sunshine and fresh air during your Rio sightseeing trip, then hiking to the top of Gávea Rock is what to do in Rio de Janeiro!

    Take part in a little light climbing towards the end of the hike before taking in amazing views of major Rio de Janeiro attractions. From above, you can see Pedra Bonita, Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf Mountain, and much more! And, while you’re there, see if you can find where centuries of erosion have created a “face” and what looks like an ancient inscription. Finally, you’ll make your way back down the mountain before hopping in our comfortable vehicle and getting dropped off at your hotel! It’s one of the most exciting things to do in Rio de Janeiro!
