Highlights
    What to Expect
    Following pickup at your Rio hotel (pickup available for Downton and South Zone hotels), meet your guide and climb into your open-top Jeep. Fasten your seatbelt and get started on the short drive to Tijuca National Park, just ten minutes' drive outside of Rio's city center.

    On your drive, listen as your guide details the importance of the Mata Atlântica ecosystem — part of the vast and protected Mata Biosphere Reserve, which covers fourteen states in Brazil.

    When you reach the forest, disembark for an easy, 15-30 minute hike on a gradual trail. Follow your guide to the crystal-clear cascade of Cachoeira dos Macacos and pass the picturesque waterfalls of Cascatinha.

    During the Jeep tour, stop at Vista Chinesa for panoramic views of Copacabana, Ipanema, and Guanabara Bay. Look for sloths, monkeys, butterflies, and birds. Make stops at Mayrink Chapel and Emperor's Table.

    When your 4-hour eco-adventure has come to a close, return to your Rio de Janeiro hotel for drop-off.

    This was a great tour to do in the morning. Spectacular view of Rio from Vista Chinesa. Our tour guide was also great with a lot of information regarding the forest and surroundings.
