The Ecological City Tour in Rio de Janeiro will give you the opportunity to see this amazing Brazilian city from a different angle. This fascinating excursion is ideal for those who want to explore more of Tijuca National Park.

This tour starts at the base of Pedra Bonita, where the takeoff ramp is for hang gliding and paragliding flights. Next, you’ll start a 40-minute walk to reach the summit of Pedra Bonita, from where you can enjoy panoramic views of Pedra da Gavea, the beaches of Barra da Tijuca and Sao Conrado, and the immense Tijuca forest. This is one of the best viewpoints to photograph the city of Rio de Janeiro.

This unique Rio city tour continues with an ecological trail in the park to the Chinese Vista (Vista Chinesa), a pagoda built in an Oriental style between 1902 and 1906, in honour of the Chinese community who brought tea cultivation to Brazil. The original name of the bamboo and cement structure was “Pagode”, and it was stratgecially located to observe Christ the Redeemer, Guanabara Bay, Sugarloaf Mountain, Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon and the beaches of Ipanema and Leblon.

This fascinating excursion ends at the Horto Waterfall, where you can take a refreshing swim - an excellent alternative to the crowded city beaches. This really is the perfect way to discover and appreciate the beautiful scenery in Rio. Book this Ecological City Tour online now with Rdj4u!
