Morro Dois Irmaos Tours

Named for its double peaks, Rio de Janeiro’s Morro Dois Irmaos translates to the “Hill of Two Brothers.” The city is famous for its views, especially from above, and from the top of the two peaks it is possible to see Ipanema and Copacabana beaches, Arpoador, São Conrado and the Tijuca Forest. Sweeping vistas provide a near 360-degree view of the scenic surroundings. With the Vidigal favela located just below, it is also a fascinating place to view the expansive communities of the city from above.

The hills have become a symbol of Rio and are great at any time of day, but most recommended in the golden light of sunset.

Practical Info

Morro Dois Irmaos is located in the Vidigal neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro in Zona Sul. To hike to the top is a moderate, one-hour journey on foot.
