What you'll do
We will meet at Barra da Tijuca and drive 30 min to the Tijuca National Park, where our experience begins. We park inside the Park beside the Taunay Waterfall, the most famous cascade in the Park with its 35m free fall beauty. From there we hike 30min to the visitors center and along the way we will discover amazing historical places, like the Mayrink Chapel or magestic trees that create the stunning scenery of the Park. Once we reach the Visitors Center we will stop for 20 minutes to see their permanent exhibition about the Park and local species of fauna & flora. Then we will hike for 40 minutes to the Soul Waterfall, where we can relax, allowing time to enjoy the place and feel the Rain Forest. The trail is easy and accesible to all ages, and there are no great difficulties but some bits of humid and slipery soil. Then we will hike back to where we parked the car, on a slightly different path and will enjoy the Taunay Waterfall. The waterfall has a natural cristal clear pool where we can take off our shoes and deep our feet in its waters, or even swimm if you wish. To finish the day we will stop at the Canoas Sightseeing, on our way back to the metro Station at Barra da Tijuca.
I was born in Rio and have been a host of experiences since 2017. My passion for nature has led me to explore trails from a very young age and today I have great pleasure in sharing this passion with my guests, showing them the most beautiful places in Rio, such as our beautiful beaches and rainforests with spectacular views. Check out my profile, you'll see my other experiences and great reviews from my previous guests. In my experiences, I'lll respect your time and limits, make you feel at ease and relaxed. With respect, kindness and positivity. @hikeinrio
