TREKKING TIJUCA FOREST
Day: February 28th, 2009 (saturday)
Time: 9h leaving Copacabana Palace Hotel
10h leaving Praça Afonso Viseu at Alto da Boa Vista
This park is known as the largest urban forest on earth. Its huge mountains covered with tropical vegetation
contrast with dramatic granite rocks forming the unique background for Rio's beaches and constructions.
In this tour we visit the Park's best viewpoints, waterfalls and hike up Tijuca Peak (Rio's highest at 3300 ft).
A good option is to combine this Tour with an afternoon visit to the charming district of Santa Teresa, with its
cobblestone hilly streets, old homes; interesting museums and Rio's last surviving tram line. During a very short
stay in town it may be useful to include a quick drive up to Corcovado to see the most famous of all images of
Rio, the statue of Christ the Redeemer, located inside the Park.
