This specially designed Carioca Expedition is a tour in Rio de Janeiro that provides you with the unique chance to see the best highlights of the city. Our day starts with an accommodation pick-up where you will be met by your professional English speaking tour guide. We will make the first stop of the day at the hang gliding landing area at Sao Conrado beach where the hang gliders land after they take off from Pedra Bonita. Admire the incredible views of the mountains from the coast and contemplate making time in your schedule for a paragliding session.
From there, the mini-bus will take you to the Tijuca National Park and get a glimpse of the greenest tropical rainforest. This is the best spot to check how nature and urban areas can coexist. See waterfalls, tropical plants, trees and wildlife. Visit the Chinese View, a amazing outlook with a great sight of the south zone of the city. Make a stop for lunch (not included) in Ipanema and transfer to the Christ The Redeemer Statue where you can take as many photos as your heart desires.
