Explore the nature of Rio de Janeiro with this fun and informative Jeep Tour. Get to know another side of Rio, beyond the beaches, and surprise yourself with the exotic vegetation!

The tour starts in the Botanical Garden, which was established by D. João VI in 1817 to grow exotic plants. It is one of the world’s most unique parks, thanks to the variety of plant species that live there. The Royal Palms and huge water lilies are remarkable, as are the famous Vitórias Régias. There are also examples of Pau-Brasil, a coastal tree which is unfortunately endangered. You will explore the enchanting corners of the Botanical Garden, one of Tom Jobim’s (the famous Bossa Nova singer) favorite spots.

This city tour continues to Tijuca Forest, but before you arrive there will be a stop at the Mirante Vista Chinesa (Chinese Viewpoint), from where you can admire the panoramic view over the beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana, and Guanabara Bay and Niteroi. Then the jeep will take you up Tijuca Forest, the largest urban forest in the world. It is a protected area, located just ten minutes from Rio de Janeiro. Here you will see some Brazilian animals, such as monkeys, sloths and several species of birds.
