What is Pedra da Gavea Hike Tour?

Pedra da Gavea Hike is a hiking tour in Rio de Janeiro, one of the most admired by local hikers. In order to complete this mountaineering adventure challenge, you must overcome the great ascent of about two and a half hours and a basic rock climbing section called Carrasqueira.

Pedra da Gavea is one of the most famous rock formations in Rio de Janeiro and the most admired adventure of the wonderful city. We will enjoy a hike-and-climb full of legends and mysteries all around. This is the ideal tour for those who enjoy adventure and adrenaline in the mountains. The Pedra da Gavea is the largest rock block on the seafront in the world. From the top of its 842 meters it is possible to see the main mountains of the city of Rio de Janeiro, besides the Guanabara Bay, Ipanema, Leblon, São Conrado, Barra da Tijuca and the Serra dos Órgãos.

The Pedra da Gavea hike tour in rio de janeiro is steep and presents several natural obstacles that we have to overcome. In order to overcome Carrasqueira challenge, no previous experience is necessary. The guide will help the group using all the safety gear, techniques and procedures to carry out the adventure. Climbing equipment is included for the tour. The descent of the climb is done by a technique similar to rappel, but who controls the equipment and the descent is the guide, offering much more comfort and safety. You just need to relax, enjoy and hit lots of photos.

This trail happens in sector C of the Tijuca National Park, which means that we are within the Atlantic Forest of Rio de Janeiro and that we have great possibilities of finding wild animals during the tour. Let’s remember that the climate is hot and humid, which makes the Pedra da Gavea hike an excellent exercise.

If you have an adventurous soul and want to get to know Rio de Janeiro from above, this is the tour you are looking for. Book your adventure!
