Spot wildlife such as monkeys and tropical birds, and take in panoramic views of the city and many of its iconic attractions below.

First, go to the "Vista Chinesa", a superb viewpoint, where you can see the beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana, as well as the statue of Christ the Redeemer, Guanabara Bay and the city of Niteroi . Then, stop at waterfalls and walk an easy hiking trail through the Tijuca Forest.



On this tour, you'll venture deep into the heart of the world's largest urban forest, through paths that were once used for the coffee plantations of the Brazilian Empire.

All these attractions make the Tijuca Forest a must for any tourist itinerary. The easy access and the variety of options for recreation make this place an oasis in the city. After the tour, you will be dropped back at your hotel at 13:00 PM.
