Rappel Rio de Janeiro presents some of the nicest experiences in the city.
What is the Rappel activity?
Also known as abseiling, the rappel activity is basically a rope-descent using climbing equipment and a belay device, that breaks the descent while you go down. Although most of the times the practitioner has to hike up (or climb up) to the rappelling spot, the descent itself doesn’t involve physical effort, but the adrenaline level will definitely increase.
