  • Walks coming out of morro do vidigal, leads around 1:00 and 30 m (ja the rise of the Hill). Access is quite easy. The view is stunning. It is not dangerous as many speak. Just take the day before of the hill there is a shortcut to view the slum of rocinha, which is gigantic!!!

  • This was quite a trek up the hill. Very intense workout; bring water, good hiking shoes, and start the hike before noon. It gets crowded later throughout the day.
  • Wow. Such an amazing place. The hike itself is steep but doable. It doesn't help that the sun is extra hot in Rio. So pack up 2bottles of water and some fruit to enjoy once you are at the top. The view is worth a million bucks.
  • An amazing hike.. yes! amazing!!! do it! Safe and medium difficult hike..
  • Safe to get there, just do not Photoshop at The favela, The view at The top is amazing..you should go
  • It's hard to find a similar landscape. Really outstanding. If you like hiking, I definitely recommend! It takes usually around 40-60 minutes to get to the top (easy/medium difficulty), starting from the football court. To get to the football court, You better get a ride on a motorcycle-taxi or van from the entrance of the Vidigal community.

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
