Pedra Bonita

star-5
515 Reviews

Many of the colorful hang gliders soaring over the city of Rio de Janeiro launch from the top of Pedra Bonita, a granite peak located within Tijuca National Park. From an elevation of 2,283 feet (696 meters), the views are stellar even for visitors who choose to forgo the hang gliding. Unlike some of Rio’s other peaks, Pedra Bonita has an easy trail to the top.

A mile-long (1.5-kilometer) trail climbs steadily toward the peak, and while there’s a significant elevation change along the way, there are steps on the steeper parts, so it’s no more difficult than climbing a staircase. Barra da Tijuca, Sugarloaf Mountain, Rocinha favela and Christ the Redeemer are all visible from the top.

Pirate trail on Pedra Bonita by SE JOGA IN RIO

star-5
We will be on the Pedra Bonita trail. Pedra is a peak approximately 700 meters high and in my opinion is the best view of Rio de Janeiro. Better than Christ, Sugar Loaf, etc ... It is located in the Tijuca Forest National Park, considered the largest urban forest in the world replanted by man. Did you know that it is the most visited National Park in Brazil? It is also part of what was once the second largest tropical biome in Brazil.

Private Trail and Rappelling at Morro Dois Irmãos by Desbravando Rio

Private Trail and Rappelling at Morro Dois Irmãos by Desbravando Rio

star-4.5
Do you know those trails that are medium level, quiet and have a very strong meaning? This is the case of this spectacular trail. Even before starting the trail, we already came across the community of Vidigal, so we are inserted into that world even quickly, and without realizing we are glazed between the "zig and zag" and the people who live there. After a little big adventure among the cars and motorcycles, we arrived at the entrance to the trail, which already embraces us with a well closed and refreshing forest. A simple trail, with little difficulty, but well inclined in some parts, is made in an average time of 45 minutes, but the best of it are the points that unveil a Rio de Janeiro you never saw, we observe the whole neighborhood of São Conrado , the Rocinha Favela seen from above, Lagoon, Sugar Loaf, the beaches of Leblon and Ipanema, besides that beautiful sea, but let's not talk about everything here so as not to spoil the surprise.

Hi, my name is Yuri, please let me introduce myself. I was born in Rio de Janeiro and raised in Copacabana practicing all sorts of outdoors sports like surfing, climbing, and hiking. I also trained the local sports to a high degree, I am a Brazilian Jiu Jtisu black belt and a Capoeira master. I feel very privileged to live in such a beautiful and culturally rich city that is Rio. I have travelled all over the world to places diverse as Peru, the UK, Scandinavia, Germany, Croatia, France, Holland, Spain, and Bali working with Capoeira workshops and making friends. I used to work in my family business in Copacabana, specialising in beach wear and sports. Our swimwear and capoeira trousers became famous, especially in Europe and in Israel. After many years working in the shop, I decided to become a tour guide in 2012. :)
