Pedra Da Gavea is an impressive granite mountain on Rio's shoreline, easily recognizable for its huge flat top. It is certainly the city's most beautiful hike, but only recommended for the reasonably fit and experienced hikers. During 2/3 of the trail, we hike inside the Atlantic Rain Forest. On the last part, the vegetation is lower and the views are breathtaking-- a blend of forested slopes, ocean and the city. After a short and easy rock-climb we reach the summit, which is Rio's most spectacular viewpoint. During all the way you have the support of bilingual climbing instructor who provides safety, climbing equipment, instructions and information.
