Pedra Bonita Tours

star-5
1 review
Pedra Bonita
Many of the colorful hang gliders soaring over the city of Rio de Janeiro launch from the top of Pedra Bonita, a granite peak located within Tijuca National Park. From an elevation of 2,283 feet (696 meters), the views are stellar even for visitors who choose to forgo the hang gliding. Unlike some of Rio’s other peaks, Pedra Bonita has an easy trail to the top.

A mile-long (1.5-kilometer) trail climbs steadily toward the peak, and while there’s a significant elevation change along the way, there are steps on the steeper parts, so it’s no more difficult than climbing a staircase. Barra da Tijuca, Sugarloaf Mountain, Rocinha favela and Christ the Redeemer are all visible from the top.

Practical Info

Check the weather before heading out, as low cloud cover will almost completely obscure the views from the top.
Address: Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil 20531-590, Brazil

Pirate trail on Pedra Bonita by SE JOGA IN RIO

star-5
We will be on the Pedra Bonita trail. Pedra is a peak approximately 700 meters high and in my opinion is the best view of Rio de Janeiro. Better than Christ, Sugar Loaf, etc ... It is located in the Tijuca Forest National Park, considered the largest urban forest in the world replanted by man. Did you know that it is the most visited National Park in Brazil? It is also part of what was once the second largest tropical biome in Brazil.

Private Group or Solo Hiking Tour to Pedra Bonita by Yuri - Rio de Janeiro

star-5
Hi, my name is Yuri, please let me introduce myself. I was born in Rio de Janeiro and raised in Copacabana practicing all sorts of outdoors sports like surfing, climbing, and hiking. I also trained the local sports to a high degree, I am a Brazilian Jiu Jtisu black belt and a Capoeira master. I feel very privileged to live in such a beautiful and culturally rich city that is Rio. I have travelled all over the world to places diverse as Peru, the UK, Scandinavia, Germany, Croatia, France, Holland, Spain, and Bali working with Capoeira workshops and making friends. I used to work in my family business in Copacabana, specialising in beach wear and sports. Our swimwear and capoeira trousers became famous, especially in Europe and in Israel. After many years working in the shop, I decided to become a tour guide in 2012. :)

What makes this trip unforgetable is that we use a 4 x4 convertible jeep, which is awesome for 360 degree views of the forest and also gives the tour the appeal of adventure.
