Experience a hang gliding or paragliding tandem flight over Rio de Janeiro, taking off from Pedra Bonita in UNESCO-listed Tijuca National Park. After a safety briefing from your qualified instructor, soar above granite peaks draped in lush rain forest. Take in the coastline as you fly for some minutes before landing at Pepino Beach in São Conrado.

If there are two things that are must dos in Rio, I would say this is one of them along with visiting Christ the Redeemer. The experience is priceless and a memory you will never forget. You get the option to buy a t shirt and your go pro pictures and videos from the cameras 2 mounted on the hang glider. Kids under 16 are not allowed, much to the dismay of my son who already wants his 16th birthday in Rio.
