Know More about this tour

The Pedra da Gavea hike is located inside the carioca Atlantic Forest, in the Tijuca National Park, which means that during the tour there is the possibility of finding wild animals. Most of the year the climate in Rio de Janeiro is hot and humid, so all participants should be well hydrated and carry at least 3 liters of water for the activity. It is necessary to administer the duration of the tour to Pedra da Gavea as the Tijuca National Park closes at 17:00 (5pm).

The Pedra da Gavea hike is considered a very beautiful trail and with several natural obstacles, which are easy to overcome. Most of the time the climb is steep and heavy. The two main challenges in the Pedra da Gavea hike are: first the great ascent of about two and a half hours and second a 30 meter section of basic level climbing called the Carrasqueira. To overcome the climb in Carrasqueira its not necessary to have previous experience with rock climbing. The tour guide will assist all participants using rock climbing equipment, techniques and procedures required to perform the adventure with comfort and safety.

The descent through the Carrasqueira climbing section is done with the use of a technique, similar to rappelling, where the guide will be controlling the equipment and the descent, offering much more security for the group. You and your friends will only need to enjoy the moment and hit lots of photos.
