With a privileged location, the hang gliding and Parapente take-off ramp offers us a breathtaking view, including Morro Dois Irmãos, São Conrado Beach and Favela da Rocinha. We continue to the Pedra Bonita trail, a light walk that takes an average of 40 minutes to reach the top. From the top of Pedra Bonita it is possible to see Pedra da Gávea, the beaches of Barra da Tijuca and São Conrado, with the immensity of the Tijuca Forest around us. It is a beautiful natural viewpoint and one of the best views to photograph the city of Rio de Janeiro.
After descending the Pedra Bonita trail, the Passeio Ecológico continues through the Tijuca National Park towards Vista Chinesa, a pavilion in an oriental mold that was built between 1902 and 1906 to honor the Chinese who brought tea to Brazil. The “pagode”, the original name of the structure that is made of bamboo and cement, is strategically positioned, from where you have an incredible panoramic view. It is possible to see several sights from this angle, such as Christ the Redeemer, Guanabara Bay, Sugarloaf Mountain, Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon and beaches in Ipanema and Leblon.
To close our Ecological Tour with a golden key, we will take a refreshing bath in the Horto Waterfall. The trail there has a light difficulty level with some obstacles along the way and is located within the limits of the Tijuca National Park.

On this tour, we will explore the city of Rio de Janeiro through its beautiful bike paths. We will start from the beginning of Leme Beach, the first open sea beach in the south zone, and proceed to the shore of the world’s most famous beach, Copacabana. We will pass by the Copacabana Palace Hotel and the Copacabana Fort before reaching the Ipanema seafront, immortalized by the song “Girl from Ipanema” by Tom Jobim. We’ll cycle along the beach path until we reach the Jardim de Alah canal, which connects the Lagoon to the sea and divides the Ipanema and Leblon beaches.
We then arrive at Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, surrounded by Rio’s trendiest neighborhoods, framed by mountains, and embraced by Christ the Redeemer. The Lagoon amazes with its view and the reflection of the sun on its calm and quiet waters.
We’ll make a stop at Catacumba Park, where we’ll learn about Rio’s typical vegetation. You can also choose to participate in extra adventure activities like Tree Climbing, Zip Lining, and Wall Climbing (for an additional fee).

On our way back to Leme, we’ll visit Arpoador Rock, a natural viewpoint known for Rio’s most beautiful sunset. It’s common to see people applauding the sun as it sets. The return is entirely along the shoreline.
The route has bike paths almost all the way, with no obstacles, and no uphill climbs. Our team will always be on hand should you decide to stop or rest a bit.
