Pedra da Gavea Tours

Pedra da Gavea
When Portuguese sailors entered Guanabara Bay in January 1502, they spotted Pedra da Gavea and thought its shape resembled a topsail of a ship, giving the now famous mountain its name. The granite peak rises 2,769 feet (844 meters) above sea level and plummets almost directly down toward the sea.

Under the administration of Tijuca National Park, Pedra da Gavea has a challenging but well-marked hiking trail to the top, where the views rival those from Sugarloaf and Corcovado. The entire hike takes about six hours to complete.

Practical Info

Guided hiking tours are a great way to trek Pedra da Gavea, as there is a short and steep ascent near the end of the trail that is easier with ropes and harnesses.
Address: Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil 22451-261, Brazil

Private Trail and Rappelling at Morro Dois Irmãos by Desbravando Rio

star-5
Do you know those trails that are medium level, quiet and have a very strong meaning? This is the case of this spectacular trail. Even before starting the trail, we already came across the community of Vidigal, so we are inserted into that world even quickly, and without realizing we are glazed between the "zig and zag" and the people who live there. After a little big adventure among the cars and motorcycles, we arrived at the entrance to the trail, which already embraces us with a well closed and refreshing forest.A simple trail, with little difficulty, but well inclined in some parts, is made in an average time of 45 minutes, but the best of it are the points that unveil a Rio de Janeiro you never saw, we observe the whole neighborhood of São Conrado , the Rocinha Favela seen from above, Lagoon, Sugar Loaf, the beaches of Leblon and Ipanema, besides that beautiful sea, but let's not talk about everything here so as not to spoil the surprise.
