Day 3

On day 3 we’ll do the Hike Tijuca Adventure Circuit – (Regular Tour). This circuit was designed by our team of experts in the Tijuca National Park using trails and sites that are more hidden and unique. The tour offers the opportunity to hike through the Tijuca Tropical Rainforest, one of the largest urban forests in the world. Our tour takes the group through an off the beaten track circuit of trails to discover its nature and history reaching the Taquara Hill (814m=2670ft), 100m higher than Christ the Redeemer, with magnificent views to the West part of Rio. This tour also visits ruins of an old coffee farm and we see caves and waterfalls by hiking in the deep jungle over suspension bridges and streams. After the hike, refresh yourself showering in a waterfall* (bring a light towel and bathing suit).The scenery of this tour is amazing and as well as nature, it has a lot of adventurous moments inside the rainforest visiting sites that are not featured in most tours. On our way up, you will discover the history of Rio and Tijuca Forest and all about the coffee farms that used to exist there, its golden years and the reforestation that took place in the XIX century.
