Activity Description

Join an unforgettable tour through Rio de Janeiro’s Tijuca Forest, the biggest urban forest in the world. Feel the power of driving through a wide variety of beautiful scenarios aboard a military-like jeep, to then let the calm sink in as you stroll through the bush. So many wonderful things await, once you’ve seen them you won’t forget them in a hurry.

The first location the jeep will drop you off in is the Cacheira dos Macacos, a lush environment with tumbling waterfalls where you will be able to enjoy a leisurely walk while admiring the local flora. There aren’t many places where you can find thick bunches of orchids and bromeliads; dedicate some time to admire their delicate almost alien figures. Or better even: hit the hay – or, in this case, the moss – and take a nap under the wide shadow of the cedars and jacarandas. You will dreamily see endangered wildlife flutter around you, like the black-beak toucan or the dazzling blue butterfly.

Next stop if the Vista Chinesa, a curious construction erected in the 19th century in honour to the Chinese that initiated Brazilians in the art of cultivating tea. It offers an amazing vantage point of the hilly landscape and the sea that trickles into and around it. Inside the Capela Mayrink, make sure to not miss Candido Portinari’s painted panels. Finally, as you drive towards the beach of Sae Conrado through the Acude da Solidao, keep your eyes open for the dreamy sight of hang-gliders floating in the sky like colourful stars.
