    Come to one of the hidden spots in Rio, off-beaten track. The beaches are only accessible by foot, on a pleasant walk that will take us to two - three beaches.
    Lush vegetation, clear waters, empty beaches, amazing scenery. What are you waiting for.

    One of the most popular easy walks available, the hike is short and gentle, with a breathtaking view from the top of Sao Conrado and Barra neighborhoods, and Gavea Peak greeting us.
    On the return, a stop at the hang-gliding ramp. Want to fly?

    One of the most physically demanding trails, the Gavea Peak is a three hour hike to the top, where, for some, the most beautiful view awaits the group.
    360 view of the national park, Dois Irmaos Mountain, Atlantic Ocean, and on clear days the Statue of Christ and Sugar Loaf.

    Demanding walks with incredible scenery in this national park just outside the city.
    One-day to multi-day trails, including peaks up to 2200 meters (6600 feet) in height is the norm. Are you ready for this challenge?
