The Pedra da Gávea hiking is one of the most startling and rewarding of all tours. The summit stands at 842m / 2763ft above sea level.
The ascent takes around two and a half hours and, once close to the top, you will probably feel the butterflies. Besides a steep but short hand-climbing (15m / 49ft) and a few walks on the edge of precipices, there is nothing to fear, it’s all perfectly safe. On the other hand, this is an advanced hike, recommended for the adventurous and fit.
From up there, the view of Tijuca Forest, Pedra Bonita, Rocinha favela (one of the world’s biggest ghettos), São Conrado beach, Cristo Redentor, Sugar Loaf, Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon and Barra da Tijuca is simply wonderful.
Important: close to the top there is a short rocky section where we use safety equipment, very easy, quick, totally safe and perfect for beginners
