Description

This park is known as the largest urban forest on earth. Its huge mountains covered with tropical vegetation contrast with dramatic granite rocks forming the unique background for Rio's beaches and constructions. In this tour, we visit the Park's best viewpoints, including the waterfalls and Tijuca Peak (Rio's highest, at 3300 feet).

In the afternoon, you will visit the neighborhood of Corcovado and Santa Teresa. Located inside the Park, the Corcovado Mountain is known for the statue of Christ the Redeemer at its peak. The 125 ft statue has been elected as one of the New Seven Wonders of World and is considered Rio's best view. The charming district of Santa Teresa is a travel back in time with its hilly cobblestone streets (old constructions from 19th century), interesting museums and Rio's last surviving tram line.
