Follow your expert guide on a hike to Christ the Redeemer via Tijuca Forest National Park. Marvel at the views, nature, and wildlife. Start the tour with a pickup from your hotel. Meet your small group and guide, then hop into the air-conditioned car to be taken to Parque Lage, where you will start your hike. Learn about the history of the beautiful old mansion before following the trail up Corcovado Mountain. As you ascend, admire the Atlantic rainforest, centuries-old palm trees, and waterfalls.
