The Pico da Tijuca is the highest peak of the National Forest standing 1.201 meters (3940 feet) high above the carioca beaches. This large granite monument provides an excellent viewpoint to the city’s beaches, forests and also its vast northern zone which includes the Maracanã and the vast Guanabara Bay.


This is an intermediate hike which takes around 1 hour, following mostly a zig zag pattern to access the man made rock carved stairway that leads to the summit. This stairway dates back to the beginning of the 20th century and is a symbol for the historical importance of hiking activities in Rio.


This hike is located inside the Tijuca National Forest which is the pulsating green heart of Rio de Janeiro. It supplies the city with fresh water sources, refreshing shades and stunning panoramic views. This tour shows both a cultural and natural perspective of the city, because the visited area has been protected since 1862. Since then, the desire to escape to nature has attracted many visitors to this magical place.
