What you'll do

This is a super recommended experience for those who love adventure, outdoor activities, culture and nature! We are going to drive trough Estrada das Canoas, a beautiful road inside the Tijuca's Forest that has some amazing views and we, of course, are going to stop and admire one of those as we drive on board of a classic Land Rover Defender to the beginning of the Pedra Bonita trail. The trail to the top of Pedra Bonita is of low intensity and lasts around 30 minutes, during our hike I will tell you some curiosities about the Forest history and it's fauna and flora. Once at the top you will have an amazing 360° view of our mountains and beaches! I go there all the time and just can't get used to it, so be ready to be astonished by the beauty of the place! ​ After the hike we will return to the Estrada das Canoas road and visit the other two stops of this hiking tour: The Emperor's Table, the place where the royal family used to have lunch, and The Chinese View, a cabin in the Asian style with a breathtaking view to the Rodrigo de Freitas Laggon, Christ and much more and the Taunay Waterfall, the biggest in the Tijuca's Forest! So don't forget to bring extra swimming clothes if you want to take a waterfall bath! In addition to your good memories, you will also bring back home beautiful photos with professional camera. So...are you ready to fall in love with Rio?

Gabriel

I'm the founder of One Carioca Day (@onecariocaday) a tourism/unique experiences company whose mission is to offer our guests a unique experience in Rio - not as a typical tourist, but as a true carioca (person who was born in Rio) - in a fun, friendly and environmentally conscious way! I'm passionate about nature since I was a kid, I was very curious about the colors and shapes of the other life forms. I still up to that, but now what fascinates me the most is how interlinked things are and how every specie has a roll in the proper functioning of the ecosystem! I like to spend my free time surfing, traveling, studying about the Atlantic Rain Forest and doing volunteer work at the Tijuca's National Park, where all the places we are going to visit are located. I'm also graduated in environmental engineering with some extra-curricular courses in the botanical area. It is super gratifying to me to show the beautiful places of the city I love and spread the knowledge about its nature!
