What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Floresta da Tijuca, Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, State of Rio de Janeiro Brazil

The scenery of this tour is amazing and more than nature, it has a lot of adventurous moments when we pass by peaks, rocks and cliffs that give us panoramic views that are not featured in most tours. The trail starts at a cozy location inside the park, called Bom Retiro, with a large parking lot and restrooms.
