Full description

Enjoy taking in breathtaking views of Rio de Janeiro with a local guide.

Hike to Dois Irmãos Hill, one of the most interesting hikes in Rio de Janeiro, not only for its formidable landmark near trendy Ipanema and Leblon beaches but also because of its social aspect.

To begin, go up to Vidigal Favela by local van or moto-taxi. And after hiking for about one and half hours through the forest, take in view of the summit, which stands at 533 meters high.

Understand the social occupation and contrasts in Rio de Janeiro and also the beautiful way the Tijuca Forest mixes with the city.

On the way back, take a tour through the favela.
