Enjoy complimentary pickup from your Rio hotel and head straight to Tijuca National Park. Admire Cascatinha Taunay, the first of the tour’s two waterfalls and also the tallest in the Tijuca.

Listen to informative commentary from your guide about the history of Rio and the rainforest before your 2-hour summit to Tijuca Peak which stands at 3350 feet. After a quick lunch—to be brought with you—hike to Tijuca Mirim, a smaller peak, and take in the beautiful views.

Trek down a different trail to pass by Cachoeira das Almas—Waterfall of the Souls—for a refreshing dip before heading back to the starting point and driving to your hotel in Rio.
