Mangrove and Jungle Tour

Rio has a privilege of being settled in a magical location surrounded by nature and the jungle.
With this tour you will discover part of the largest urban forest in the world the National Park of Tijuca , after driving to the beginning of the trail we start a short hike (45minutes) to the top of Pedra Bonita peak (693m above the sea level). This peak has one of the most impressive views of whole Rio!
After the hike and driving down, we continue to the modern beach district of Barra da Tijuca, this area has a very particular nature with loads of lagoons with mangrove and swampy area home to many fishes and animals, in order to discover that we make use of our boat for a ride between many islands and narrow channels where is the home of two native species in particular the capybara and broad-snouted caiman. The chance of spotting both of them is very high and a great experience of seeing them in their natural habitat in a big city.
