Know More about this tour

The Pedra do Telegrafo stone is a 354 meters high block of rock located inside the borders of Pedra Branca State Park, in the Praias Selvagens beaches sector, on top of a hill called Morro de Guaratiba. The name comes from the Portuguese word telegrafo that means telegraph. Thats because a military communication station was based there during World War II.

The tour Pedra do Telegrafo Hike starts at Praia Grande in Barra de Guaratiba, entering a place known as the Fishermans Pathway. During the Pedra do Telegrafo Hike we will pass through several viewpoints while coursing its 3,5 km of moderate trail. One of them is where the well-known photo is taken, the one that spread in several social networks. Its possible to take super creative photos there, because of the impression that below the stone there is an abyss. No need for rush here, our guides for Pedra do Telegrafo Hike already knows the best spots for the best photos.

During the hike and at the summit, we have an exuberant view of Rio de Janeiros wild beaches, such as Praia do Perigoso, Praia do Meio and Grumari. From there we can also see Pontal do Recreio, Barra da Tijuca and even Pedra da Gavea. To the other side its possible to see the unique Restinga do Marambaia and its long sand beach, one of the longest beaches on our coast. We can also observe a good part of the mountains of Pedra Branca State Park and Tijuca National Park. The contact with nature that we have at the top of the telegraph stone brings us a sense of freedom and peace that we only find on very remote places.

On the way back, we will stop for photos on the beautiful beaches of Prainha and Grumari. Book the Pedra do Telegrafo Hike and come join us.
