Go with us on a morning jeep tour through Rocinha Favela.

We will pass by Gavea Road and make our way towards Rocinha Slum. Rocinha has around 150,000 inhabitants, making it the largest slum area in South America.

During our stay, we will be watching the routine of this community, visiting local houses, day nurseries and schools.

We'll walk through the small streets up to the Boiadeiro Square, where there is a free market with food and hand made goods from the North and Northwest regions. Next, we'll proceed for a visit at the gym of Samba School Academicos da Rocinha.

We will drop you off at your hotel at the end of the tour so that you can have lunch before an unforgettable afternoon to the Corcovado Mountain and Christ the Redeemer Statue.

Meet your guide at your hotel and head towards the Cosme Velho Train Cog Station at the bottom of the Corcovado Mountain passing by Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas.

Once at the mountain, you will take the ride up to the top, through the dense Tijuca rain forest to the 38m tall Christ the Redeemer Statue.

From the top, you will enjoy the spectacular views of Rio and the surrounding countryside as your guide shows you the wonderful sights of Rio. After riding the train back down, passengers are returned to their hotels.
