This is a road going to Barra but it is closed on weekends. Most people just go to the Corcovado but if you go PAST this and continue up the road (on foot or bike) it is well worth it. It was SO quiet, hardly...More

If you have a way to make it here on Sunday I would HIGHLY recommend you bring a bike and do the nice 4-5KM bike ride in the mountains. Even though its a large uphill ride to get here once you get on the closed...More

Estrada das Paineiras is the road to Corcovado. If you feel adventurous you can walk up, but do not go alone. It's isolated and not the safest route. It is beautiful and natural, for those who like to see small animals, birds and great scenery...More

You actually can go by car, but the fun is to take a day to walk, run or bike. It's a a hard trail for bike and run, but for a walk it's easy and pleasant. Lot's of green and nature, really peaceful!

By car or by bike this is the perfect place to enjoy Rio's bests viewpoints and a relaxing ride. Extend your ride to vista Chinesa and Estrada dad Canoas for more amusement.

A 4.5km stretch of paved road winding through the Atlantic Forrest, 500 meters above Rio de Janeiro. The road is closed on Sundays and Holidays, so it is a great place for jogging or riding your bike. The first thing you will notice, of course,...More

Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local
artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this
neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors
can now stroll through this area to view magnificent
mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th
century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a
former mansion turned museum which houses works by
prominent Brazilian modern artists.
