What to Expect
Hike the world’s largest urban rainforest on a half-day tour of Tijuca Park, and enjoy an itinerary customized for you. Home to hundreds of species of plants and animals, Tijuca Park serves as a striking reminder of the Atlantic rainforest that used to cover the entire eastern coast of South America.

Meet your guide at your preferred location in Rio de Janeiro (typically your hotel or apartment). Then, following a quick ride to the park, explore the verdant rainforest of Tijuca on foot. Start near the entrance, with a view of one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Latin America.

Ascend Pico da Tijuca, Rio’s highest peak. Learn about the park’s fragile ecosystem and discover why the locals call the park the “lungs of Rio.” A moderately-challenging hike at 1,017 meters, the Pico da Tijuca summit is well worth the trip! Take in one of the most impressive views of Rio from the summit, including a panoramic view of Guanabara Bay and the legendary Maracanã Stadium.

Continue through the forest for a closer look at the exotic plants and animals, such as saguis, capuchin monkeys, toucans, hawks, and quatis (the Brazilian raccoon).
