Experience a hike and climb filled with legends and mysteries. This is the ideal hiking tour for those who enjoy lots of adventure and adrenaline. You will go to the summit of Pedra da Gavea, which is the biggest block of solid rock by the sea in the world. At the top of its 842 meters, you can see the main mountains of the city of Rio de Janeiro and landmarks such as Guanabara Bay, Ipanema, Leblon, São Conrado, Barra Tijuca and the Serra dos Orgaos Region.

This hiking tour takes place inside the C sector of Tijuca National Park, which means that you are within the Rio de Janeiro Atlantic Rainforest, so you have great chances to encounter wild animals during the hike.

You will take a traditional trail to Pedra da Gavea of about two and a half hours to reach the top. The hike is steep and has several natural obstacles that must be overcome. There is some basic rock climbing section called Carrasqueira, but no previous experience is necessary here as your guide will help you using all the safety techniques and procedures necessary.

The descent is made by a technique similar to rappelling, but the guide is the one who controls the equipment and the descent. This allows for more comfort and safety. You just need to relax, enjoy and take lots of photos.

The climate is hot and humid, making the Pedra da Gavea hike an excellent exercise. If you have an adventurer's soul and want to see Rio de Janeiro seen from above, this is the tour you are looking for.
