Details

Entering into the world’s largest urban forest, surrounded by awesome trees, waterfalls, and tropical wildlife it is hard to believe we are so close to the city below. The trail up to the second highest peak in Rio not strenuous with no technical difficulties.

We walk on a shaded forest path with a constant and manageable inclination for approximately 1.5hrs. As we draw close to the summit (at 1,021m) the vegetation changes and we can see the magnificent sprawling forest and views of the north side of the city, Maracanã Stadium and Guanabara Bay. At this point there is a staircase carved into the rock, created in the last century for the visit of King Albert of Belgium. This leads us the summit of Pica da Tijuca and on a clear day a 360* view of the entire ‘CidadeMaravilhoso’ in all its glory! We can see Sugar Loaf Mountain, Corcovado, the monolithic rock Pedra da Gávea, the Atlantic beaches, downtown Rio, even stretching across the bay, the 13km bridge and the city of Niteroi on the otherside, and inland – the jagged peaks of the Serra dos Órgãos!

 

- Transport to and from the trail
- Bilingual guides specialized in the activity, equipped with communication radios
- The necessary safety equipment for the activity (1st aid kit, repellent, torch and walking pole)
