Pedra Bonita Hike requires light physical effort and will take you to one of the most beautiful natural viewpoints in Rio de Janeiro.
Pedra Bonita is 693m high and is located in Sector C of the Tijuca National Park. For its privileged location, the Pedra Bonita region also has the only gliding flight takeoff ramp in the city of Rio de Janeiro. From there you can fly with Hang Gliding or Paragliding. The gliding flight ramp has a grandstand so we can watch the departures, as well as take great photos.
The scenery at the top of Pedra Bonita is beautiful: Pedra da Gavea with all its grandeur is revealed between the beaches of Barra da Tijuca and São Conrado, with the immense Tijuca Forest surrounding us. That brings peace to the place, a peace and beauty without equal. A cinema scene that also provides one of the best angles to enjoy the sunset in Rio de Janeiro.
The guide will also lead the group to climb up Agulhinha da Gavea, the Pedra Bonita’s counterfort. It has a beautiful view of Morro Dois Irmãos. The total duration of the Pedra Bonita Hike tour is approximately 4 hours.
The Pedra Bonita Hike is the perfect adventure for anyone who wants to trek through the forest and be dazzled by one of the most beautiful views of the city of Rio de Janeiro. Book your tour!
